Urgent Orthopedic Care When You Need it

If a sports medicine injury (to your knee or shoulder) takes you out of the game, it's important to find the right path to care as quickly as you can. A Mass General Brigham experienced orthopedic advanced practice provider (such as a physician assistant or nurse practitioner) will provide a private virtual consultation you access from anywhere. Urgent access virtual visits are available Monday through Friday, from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm, for adults and children aged 16 and older.

When you call 617-643-3333 to make an appointment, you will receive a link through Patient Gateway to access your virtual visit within 24-48 hours of your call. During your video appointment, you will speak with an advanced orthopedics practitioner, who will help you better understand your injury and offer important next steps.

What to Expect During Your Virtual Visit

During your virtual visit, you will receive the same level of care as you would in-person. An advanced orthopedics practitioner will provide a complete evaluation to understand the urgency and severity of your sports medicine injury. They offer quick and convenient guidance for appropriate next steps, which can range from icing, observation and rest, to making an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon, or other treatment interventions. 

Advantages to Virtual Visits:

  • Access to convenient care for your sports medicine injury
  • Face-to-face conversations with world-class orthopedics specialists
  • Quick answers to your questions
  • No travel required: you can meet with your care team without leaving home
