A Concierge Visit is essentially a New Patient visit combined with a Phone Consult, to provide the highest level of concierge orthopedic medical care to our most discerning patients. With a Concierge Visit the patient will take the same steps as they would for a New Patient visit, by filling out the patient Intake Form and uploading a self video. The MoonlightOrtho provider will then call the patient to discuss his or her orthopedic issues in more detail, and may offer additional workup and treatment options. The phone call will consist of 15 minutes of uninterrupted conversation with your provider. Next, the provider will respond with a written Assessment and Recommendation(s), as well as a return video.
With a Concierge Visit your MoonlightOrtho provider can give a more personalized service, and cover a more in-depth explanation of your orthopedic condition, while answering any additional questions that the you may have regarding various treatment options. Additionally, our providers do their best to respond to our Concierge Visit patients the same day.Search A Provider
A Second Opinion Chart Review is for the patient who wants a non-biased Orthopedic provider to review their medical records from an outside source, i.e. another physician’s office, and give additional treatment Recommendation(s), based on the information available and the MoonlightOrtho provider’s years of experience in their field of expertise.
The patient will be asked to upload their outside office notes, along with any supporting documentation; including imaging, lab, or EMG reports (up to 30 pages). The medical chart from the outside practitioner will be thoroughly reviewed by your MoonlightOrtho provider, and an independent Assessment and Recommendation(s) will be made. This may or may not be in alignment with the previous treating practitioners’ recommendations. If the patient then wants a full evaluation separately by a MoonlightOrtho provider, they will additionally register for a New Patient visit.
Note: This is a record review only, the patient will not upload a patient Intake Form or video.Search A Provider
A Phone Consult is a personal phone call, from your MoonlightOrtho provider, and can be utilized to discuss anything the patient wants to discuss regarding the field of Orthopedics. The patient may have questions regarding the use of orthobiologics such as stem cell or platlet rich plasma (PRP) injections, or they may have questions or want advice concerning new or cutting edge technologies or surgical procedures. The Phone Consult will include 20 minutes of uninterrupted conversation with your MoonlightOrtho provider. No documentation is preformed as there is no exchange of written or video information between the patient or provider. This is an on-demand, phone call-only visit.Search A Provider
A New Patient visit is when a patient sees a MoonlightOrtho provider for the first time, either as a one-time visit or to initially establish care for a NEW problem of ONE body part/joint. A New Patient visit includes: a full patient Intake Form, a two-minute self-video upload describing and showing the symptoms, and upload of any referral documentation the patient may have from their primary care provider. The above information will be reviewed by your MoonlightOrtho provider, and the patient will receive a return video from the provider, along with a written Assessment and Recommendation(s) for treatment; which will be added to your Intake Form, thus making this a printable History and Physical document just as you would receive when having your medical records printed from an in-office visit. Additionally, prescriptions, lab studies, or imaging, such as an MRI, may be ordered if indicated. When the initial issue is treated and the patient has another NEW problem, this will also be treated as a New Patient visit.Search A Provider
A Carpal Tunnel Concierge visit is a specialized type of New Patient visit, for those patients who have previously been diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome by another medical professional.
With this visit type, patients will upload a patient Intake Form, along with a self-video, and if already preformed, the results of their carpal tunnel study. Next, your provider will review all information and make recommendations, including: an order for a carpal tunnel study (an EMG or an Ultra Sound), a steroid injection or other conservative treatment including bracing, Physical Therapy, or surgery. Recommendations are based on the individual patient’s symptoms, and the objective severity of their carpal tunnel syndrome. After the MoonlightOrtho visit, patients may choose to follow up with their local practitioner or continue their care, at a discounted rate, with a MoonlightOrtho provider.
The Carpal Tunnel Concierge visit is quite unique, in that MoonlightOrtho patients, in whom carpal tunnel release surgery has been recommended, are given an option to continue their Concierge level of service outside of MoonlightOrtho. These patients are additionally offered surgery as a fee-for-service procedure, with our surgical partners at Carpal Tunnel Concierge.
In conjunction with CarpalTunnelConcierge.com we are able to offer our patients mini-incision, wide-awake carpal tunnel surgery, in an out patient surgery center setting, for under $1000. Not only do patients receive the peace of mind knowing that their surgery will be preformed by a select group of fellowship trained/CAQ-H Hand and Upper Extremity Surgeons, but additionally with “wide awake surgery” patients do not loose the day in an “anesthesia fog”.
This service is offered to patients from all over the world as a sort of “medical tourism”. However, our patients not only travel for the significant cost savings compared to the equivalent hospital/insurance based surgery, but for the actual vacation before or after their 10-minute procedure as well; as our Hand Surgeons are located in some of the most beautiful locations in the world, such as Lake Tahoe!

A Return Visit is when a patient has already established care with a MoonlightOrtho provider and initial treatment Recommendations have been completed; however, the patient still needs on-going care for their INITIAL problem. The patient may have completed Physical Therapy, a course of oral anti-inflammatories (NSAIDS) or corticosteroids, or may have been seen by a specialist and given medical (as opposed to surgical) treatment recommendations.
With a Return Visit patients will be asked to add new information to their original patient Intake Form, and upload a new video demonstrating any additional or new changes in their symptoms. The MoonlightOrtho physician will provide a return video as well, along with an updated written Assessment and Recommendation(s) to your patient Intake Form/History and Physical. A patient may have as many Return Visits as they need to treat their INITIAL problem, however a NEW problem will require a New Patient visit.
At MoonlightOrtho we charge less than the cost of some insurance co-pays for our Lab/Imaging Review visit; and you won't have to drive/sit in some stuffy waiting room, just to go over the report with your practitioner. Just upload the Radiologists/lab report to your Encounter, we will then review it and make additional written Recommendations (added to the Assessment and Recommendations section of your Intake Form/History and Physical) based on the results of your study. We are happy to review the actual images as well, but you will need to mail a hard copy of the disk to your MoonlightOrtho provider (find their contact info within their CV)
If you are not an established patient with MoonlightOrtho and want us to review your lab, imaging, or EMG reports, and give treatment recommendations, please register for a New Patient or Concierge visit.
FastXray patients may utilize this service for a simple review of their results, based on the radiologists report only; however, an in-depth evaluation as a New Patient, including a thorough history and video exam, is recommended for a more thorough Assessment and Recommendation(s) from your MoonlightOrtho provider.
Note: We STRONGLY recommend patients to seek follow-up care for review of any lab or imaging study that has been preformed, either with your MoonlightOrtho provider, or your local Primary Care or Orthopedic Physician.
A Physical Therapy Consult consists of 20 minutes of on-demand, “real-time” chat with a licensed Physical Therapist. With this type of consult, your PT can offer insight and education about treatments to speed your recovery time, and will provide home exercises that can be preformed for various orthopedic conditions. The PT may also provide guidance, pictures and/or videos describing the specific stretches and exercises most beneficial to you. Additionally, during your consult, the Physical Therapist may offer a full telemedicine PT program, and can arrange for a follow up Physical Therapy treatment in a telemedicine or clinical setting, typically within a few days. This will streamline the process of getting into Physical Therapy for conservative or post-operative treatment of your musculoskeletal condition. At MoonlightOrtho we believe in continuity of care, and take a "team approach" to treating your orthopedic problem(s)!
MoonlightOrtho has partnered with FastXray, a national supplier of imaging services, to offer our new and existing patients a cash-pay option for orthopedic imaging. Through FastXray.com we are offering the most affordable MRI, X-ray and other imaging options nationwide. For example, the cost of an MRI, performed at a FastXray facility and reviewed by a board-certified Radiologist, is just $499 (average price nationally is between $1000 and $2000 for a similar MRI). The price for a single X-ray series (2-4 views), reviewed by a board-certified Radiologist, is just $79.
Following your imaging study at a Fastxray location, your images, along with the report, are stored for 7 years in a HIPPA compliant PACS system, easily accessible by you or your provider via a secure on-line portal. This allows your MoonlightOrtho provider, or any provider or clinic you may choose, to review your imaging study remotely. With FastXray, patients will no longer have to carry a CD-ROM disk to every doctor’s appointment! The FastXray network of imaging facilities is growing rapidly, we may not be in your neighborhood yet but with our aggressive expansion we will be there soon!Go To FastXray Get Your On-Line MRI Referral/Order NOW!

A Post-Operative Visit is a concierge level service that can ONLY be offered by your surgeon if he or she is also a MoonlightOrtho provider. This option is not available to all patients, and may ONLY be taken advantage of if your surgeon has given you directions/permission to do so, and they are listed on the MoonlightOrtho website as a provider in your state. A Post-Operative visit on MoonlightOrtho has to be arranged for by your surgeon, in his or her office, prior to or after your surgery; and you should be within 90 days of your surgical date. This should be at NO charge to you. (If your surgeon is not yet part of the MoonlightOrtho provider network, please let them know that you would appreciate the convenience of this service!)
With a Post-Operative visit, patients may bypass the patient Intake Form, and will just upload a brief video, showing their surgeon the incision site, along with any progress made during their post operative period, including range of motion or anything specific that your surgeon wants you to comment on. Your surgeon should give you instructions on how to relay the information most pertinent to them during your healing period. On the self-video, patients may also ask questions regarding: ongoing limitations, expected outcomes, return to work/sports, etc. Your MoonlightOrtho provider will respond by filling out the Assessment and Recommendation(s) portion of your patient Intake Form and/or a giving a return video. Prescriptions for non-narcotic meds, work notes and Physical Therapy instructions may be given via MoonlightOrtho as well.
Note: At your surgeons’ discretion, your Post-Operative Visit may be preformed by a mid-level provider. Additionally, if you are outside of the 90-day window from your date of surgery, please register for a Concierge Visit or a New Patient visit.Search A Provider
BoneBrace.com is not an e-commerce site and we DO NOT not sell braces directly. Our goal is to give consumers another option when an Orthopedic splint or brace is needed, or when a specific brace has been recommended by your provider. We have researched hundreds of braces across countless websites to find you the lowest priced braces, recommended by our sub-specialized Orthopedic Surgeons (a wrist brace recommended by a Hand and Wrist surgeon, a back brace recommended by a Spine Surgeon, etc.) These are often the same splints and braces you would receive when seeing an Orthopedic Surgeon or Sports Medicine Physician in his or her office, but at direct-to-consumer pricing.
For a better understanding of when, where, why and how to wear the brace for maximum benefit, please register for a FREE account at www.MoonlightOrtho.com and review our OrthoU video series, where we discuss the "most commons" in Orthopedic Surgery and Sports Medicine, including simple home treatment recommendations and brace ware.Go To BoneBrace
