Health systems and hospitals are bracing for a surge of patients with chronic conditions who have postponed evaluation, treatment, and elective procedures. The influx of patients as a result of pandemic-induced medical care avoidance may create delays in scheduling. Consider scheduling an appointment with MD West ONE orthopedic and neurosurgery teams as soon as possible if you are experiencing:
