Out of Town Patients
For Out of Town & International Patients
At the Robotic Joint Center in New York, Dr. Frederick Buechel, Jr. MD sees patients from around the United States and from all over the world for possible Robotic-Arm Assisted Partial or Total Knee Replacement using the Stryker Mako™ Robotic System.
A preliminary evaluation and discussion can be performed remotely through our online/phone consultation process where Dr. Buechel reviews patient’s medical and knee history along with imaging, that is provided by patients.
To confirm the diagnosis and any decision to proceed with surgery, a complete examination and final review of imaging and laboratory data is performed by Dr. Buechel in our office, on the Upper East Side, at 737 Park Avenue, Suite 1C, New York, New York, 10021.
After a phone/online consultation is performed for out of town patients, an office evaluation is scheduled. To optimize patients’ travel schedules, patients can have their office evaluation and their procedure(a) arranged the same week.
Patients interested in Dr. Buechel’s opinion or Robotic knee replacement services are asked to fill out our new patient information “Medical History” and “Knee History” forms prior to a phone consultation, or coming to the office for an in person office visit. The digital PDF documents can be filled in directly from our website and sent to us by clicking on the “email button” at the bottom, upon completion of each form.
