A Message To My Patients – COVID-19

In these confusing, scary, and uncertain times we are making plans day by day. I had 20 patients scheduled for surgery over the next 9 days. Some patients had been waiting months for a donor cartilage graft, and others were having ACL reconstruction. It’s so hard to imagine why I can’t help these patients, and instead, I need to sit at home. However, there are shortages of hospital supplies, and the government has mandated that everything be suspended except for emergencies. 

I will be available in the clinic for urgent situations such as acute injuries, patients with locked knees or swelling that is making it difficult to walk, etc. We will be doing telehealth visits for those who can be assessed via telephone.
Please e-mail my office at stricklandoffice@hss.edu and we will do our best to help you whether you are an existing patient or not.
