Follow-up Clinic Hours: Monday - Friday, 8am - 5pm
Hospitalists are physicians who specialize in taking care of patients while they are in the hospital, including those admitted through the Emergency Department. Carteret Orthopedic Hospitalists are members of a team of physicians dedicated to the hospital and committed exclusively to our patients. They rotate their schedules to ensure that you receive around the clock quality care while in the hospital and follow-up care in the Clinic after discharge.
Our Hospitalist Orthopedic Surgeons were chosen because of their skills and ability to provide quality patient care in addition to their extensive training. They are all American Board Certified in Orthopedic Surgery. The main difference between orthopedic surgeons and hospitalist orthopedic surgeons is that hospitalists do not perform elective surgeries. This allows other physicians in the community time to focus on patients who have scheduled appointments in their practices. All of our hospitalists stay in close contact with the patient's regular physician regarding the course of treatment, which is similar to what happens when a patient is referred to a specialist.
The Carteret Orthopedic Hospitalist Clinic is open Monday through Friday from 8am until 5pm. Call 252-808-6156 for additional information.
