At OrthoLoneStar (OLS), our goal is to provide patients with comprehensive Orthopedic healthcare. This includes adding multiple ancillary service lines that meet the needs of patients and allow them to stay within our practices to complete their care cycle – through diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation and recovery.
Alongside our extensive range of specializations, OLS offers a select range of patient ancillary services. These services benefit patients while in the clinic, as well as in their own homes.
Corporate ancillary services
In the fall of 2023, OLS was excited to launch two innovative service lines: Opt Ortho and Quick Ortho.
Opt Ortho is an online resource that allows patients to buy needed Orthopedic-related products, supplies and devices specifically recommended by OLS providers. This easy to navigate website features products categorized by body part, recovery, preferred brands, sports / activities, and health and wellness. The Opt Ortho website gives patients the confidence in knowing that all products have been personally selected by our medical team.
Quick Ortho is a digital triage platform that gives Texas employers and their employees quick and easy access to Orthopedic healthcare professionals for musculoskeletal concerns. This platform is specifically targeted to large-scale Texas employers as an added benefit to their workforce, however, any size Texas employer is eligible to participate. If you are interested in leveraging the benefits of Quick Ortho for your employees, reach out to our corporate team to learn more.
Divisional ancillary services
OrthoLoneStar physicians and leadership recognize the value of offering essential and convenient ancillary services to benefit our patients’ overall health experience while enhancing Orthopedic knowledge and innovations. Our OLS divisions offer a wide range of ancillary services to meet the needs of their patients including:
- In-office imaging including x-rays and MRIs
- Physical therapy
- Occupational therapy
- Pain management
- Electromyography /Nerve conduction studies
In addition, several of our divisions have Ambulatory Surgery Centers (ASC) and Hospitals connected to their practices. These relationships offer convenience to patients who are interested in scheduling their surgery at an onsite facility with their OLS provider.
Lastly, the Fondren Orthopedic Group in Houston established the Fondren Orthopedic Research Institute, a nationally recognized institution dedicated to Orthopedic and musculoskeletal research. Their research team collaborates with industry partners, healthcare organizations and academia to advance data collection and analysis. Furthermore, they help train students – from high school to clinical fellows – to expand their knowledge and proficiency in the Orthopedic space.
