Orthopedics & Sports Medicine
During the COVID-19 crisis, Houston Methodist is here for all of our patients’ orthopedic needs by safely providing care in the most appropriate setting possible:
- Orthopedic Injury Clinics: Care for patients who suffer acute orthopedic injuries, fractures, broken bones, sprains and painful or swollen joints.
- Video visits: Our orthopedic providers can perform an examination virtually and, when needed, order diagnostic studies (X-ray or MRI).
- In-clinic appointments: We are scheduling in-clinic appointments and have implemented additional safety precautions to ensure that we provide safe and effective care to our patients.
- Home deliveries: To provide additional safety and convenience, patients can receive crutches, braces and boots delivered directly to their homes.
We are only seeing patients in the clinic if they are not experiencing COVID-19 symptoms and have passed a thorough screening, including temperature measurement.
U.S. News & World Report has ranked Houston Methodist Hospital No. 14 among 1,624 hospitals in the nation for orthopedics. U.S. News & World Report has also named Houston Methodist Hospital the No.1 hospital in Texas every year since the award began and one of the nation's best as a nationally ranked Honor Roll hospital.
