Digital Surgical Experience for Orthopedic Procedures


We're working to ease your surgical experience. Saint John's Physician Partners Orthopedics is now offering you an easy way to stay connected, informed and on track from your initial appointment through your procedure and recovery. This new Digital Experience offers virtual visits, preparation reminders and follow-up contacts after your procedure.

Your Digital Experience can include:

  • Virtual Visits with your specialist from the comfort of your home (smartphone, tablet, or home computer required).
  • An option to receive communications via text messages or email sent to your phone, tablet, or computer providing: 
    • Information and reminders to support you and help you prepared for your procedure.
    • Follow-up messages that allow you to check-in directly with your care team so they can monitor your recovery and progress, as well as address any care or pain concerns.
To find out if your physician is offering these features for your surgery, ask your physician's office or call 866-356-9434.

Dr. Bengs, who is currently offering these features, specializes in hip and knee replacement procedures. For other orthopedic needs, please see a clinician at the Providence Saint Johns Health Center - Orthopedics Center.

"Virtual medicine is a fundamental expansion of care to patients with added convenience and safety. I believe it is not only a substitute for traditional doctor visits but, in fact, is an enhancement of the doctor patient relationship."

Dr. Benjamin C. Bengs, MD, AAOS
Director of Special Surgery at the Center for Hip and Knee Replacement
