Surgical Telemedicine Services

UPMC Content 2

UPMC surgeons use telemedicine services to remotely evaluate pre- and postoperative patients located outside of Pittsburgh, PA.

Preoperative and Postoperative Tele-evaluations

UPMC surgeons offer preoperative consults, using telemedicine videoconferencing equipment, to evaluate patients and gather their history and physical information.

This allows patients to meet their UPMC surgeon face-to-face, prior to the actual day of the operation, without needing to travel to Pittsburgh.

After surgery, UPMC surgeons use the same videoconferencing service to provide postoperative care.

Benefits of Surgical Tele-evaluations

For patients who live far from Pittsburgh, pre- and postsurgical tele-evaluations:

  • Offer convenient pre-op and follow-up care close to home
  • Limit the number of trips they make to Pittsburgh
  • Save them time and money
