University Orthopaedic Associates (UOA) prides itself on delivering excellence in orthopaedic care. The COVID-19 pandemic has not changed our mission to provide you with the most current, highest quality, personalized healthcare services available. As life transitions back to normal, we continue to make the necessary adjustments to ensure a safe environment for your orthopaedic needs. And while “masking” guidelines continue to evolve, they are currently still required in the healthcare setting.
Your Health and Safety is Our Highest Priority
UOA continues to welcome and treat all patients and maintains the ability to treat urgent orthopaedic cases. If you are experiencing pain, postponing your care may put you at greater risk. So, please do not delay when scheduling your appointment with us.
In accordance with state and federal laws as well as CDC recommendations, several precautionary measures are in place to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, which include:
- Requiring all staff, patients and visitors wear a mask or cloth face covering while in our facilities
- Limiting visitor access to our offices
- Increasing the frequency of sanitizing our office locations and exam rooms
We are maintaining a COVID free environment at our surgery center, University Center for Ambulatory Surgery (UCAS), on the third floor of our Somerset office. UCAS is a full-service orthopaedic surgery center equipped to perform all procedures, from arthroscopic surgery to complex joint replacement and spine surgery.
In-Office and Telemedicine Appointments
To continue to evaluate, diagnose and treat your unique orthopaedic conditions from the comfort of your own home, our telemedicine services will remain in place on a case by case basis. For more information about our telemedicine services or to schedule an in-office appointment, please contact us.
How You Can Help
For your safety, please practice the following preventative measures:
- Wash your hands frequently (for at least 20 seconds) with soap and water
- Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer to eliminate germs when soap is not accessible
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, mouth and face
- Cough or sneeze into the crook of your arm or into a tissue
- Dispose of used tissues immediately after use
- If you have a fever, any respiratory symptoms or are not feeling well, please stay home and contact your primary care provider
