On-site Durable Medical Equipment
During the course of treatment, your physician may prescribe a brace, splint, walker, crutches, or orthotics. Splints, braces, and other equipment may be used after surgery or to improve rehabilitation after an injury. These items are also known as durable medical equipment, or DME.
Upstate Orthopedics has the DME you need right in our office. We carry a wide variety of braces and splints, or we can custom size one specifically for you. The braces and splints we carry are selected by our physicians to provide the best results. You will receive exactly what your physician has prescribed without having to search around town, and we will work with you to ensure your equipment is fitted and functioning properly.
Most DME items are covered by insurance, although there may be small out-of-pocket expenses, even with Medicare. Upstate Orthopedics is happy to bill your insurance carrier and let you know what to expect. Call (315) 464-4472 for more details.
