About TeleOrthopaedics

ABOUT TELEORTHOPAEDICS.COM

TeleOrthopaedics.com  is owned and operated by Canadian Orthopaedic Physiotherapist Terry Kane.

The goal of TeleOrthopaedics.com is to leverage internet technologies to improve orthopaedic triaging and care to ensure that patients, with musculoskeletal conditions, can connect online with the right healthcare professional at the right time, every time.

The healthcare continuum is to safely move people from a state of illness , dependency and inactivity to wellness, independency and physical activity as effectively and as quickly as possible.   The advent of internet technology is the single greatest opportunity we have to leverage clinical expertise to improve the effectiveness and speed we move along this  continuum.

Given that the overwhelming majority of musculoskeletal conditions get better without an x-ray, MRI , prescription medications  or a surgical consult,  our first project is to explore online physiotherapy consultations,  patient education and home based rehab exercises to Canadians living in areas without access to a local orthopaedic physiotherapist.
