Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) September 08, 2012
The Hand and Wrist Institute, a leading medical practice that focuses on diagnosing, treating and caring for hand- and wrist-related disorders and injuries, announced that it now offers a virtual consultation. The medical conference is done by Dr. John T. Knight, head of the Hand and Wrist Institute and an orthopaedic hand specialist. Dr. Knight, a prominent board-certified orthopedic surgeon, specializes in treating hand, wrist and upper extremity injuries and disorders using minimally invasive techniques. He has appeared on national TV and radio programs, including CNN and Good Morning America.
Individuals who are having problems with their hand or wrist and need medical attention would benefit from scheduling a virtual consultation with Dr. Knight. Also, those who have already been diagnosed with a hand or wrist condition and would like a second opinion are encouraged to contact Dr. Knight.
The conference can be done over the phone or Skype, whichever way the client prefers. The conversation would last between 20 and 45 minutes, during which time clients can discuss their hand and wrist problems and ask Dr. Knight questions.
Consultations can be held on a wide range of hand and wrist injuries, ailments and syndromes. Hand injuries can include animal bites, burns, infections, fractures, tumors, dislocations and amputations. Individuals can also discuss hand and wrist problems that are not injury-related. Patients can also ask questions regarding carpal tunnel symptoms, tendonitis, cold hands, arthritis, itchy hands and numbness of hands.
During the virtual conversation, Dr. Knight will ask the individual a series of questions about his or her hand or wrist problem, such as what is the nature of your injury, does the injury affect your way of life and if so, in what way; have you seen a physician regarding the injury and if so, what was the diagnosis, and treatment, if applicable.
After a time of question and answers, Dr. Knight may be able to give a diagnosis regarding the hand or wrist problem. He will also recommend treatment options and discuss services that the Hand and Wrist Institute provides for its patients. The institute performs surgical procedures on an outpatient basis.
Anyone from around the world can participate in a real-time conference. Dr. Knight, the best hand surgeon, and his staff will address their clients concerns regarding treatment and surgery. The Hand and Wrist Institute takes a minimally invasive approach to surgery which will result in recovery time for patients being faster and less painful.
