OrthoNY is always concerned about the safety of our patients, but as we navigate through these unprecedented times, we will continue to follow the guidelines set forth by the CDC and the NYS Department of Health, to ensure we are doing everything possible to make our offices the safest possible.
Effective March 30th and until further notice, OrthoNY will be closing some of our smaller satellite locations and seeing patients at the following larger office locations:
Urgent Care services are still available in our Albany, Saratoga and Schenectady locations from 8 – 5, Monday – Friday, and our ambulatory centers are open for out-patient emergency cases as needed. Our Albany Physical Therapy office is also still open for patients who need post-op/emergent care.
OrthoNY will continue to screen patients upon arrival, enforce social distancing guidelines and limit the amount of visitors in our offices. In addition, our offices have gone through a deep clean process and are sterilized throughout the day and every evening. These processes have been implemented to help keep our patients and staff healthy and safe.
If you are a patient considered high-risk, have traveled and/or have symptoms of a fever, cough, or respiratory issues, please call our office before coming to your appointment or using our walk-in clinics. We are now offering telemedicine appointments for our patients and may be able to help you avoid an unnecessary office visit. Call our office at 518-489-2663 and an OrthoNY representative will be able to assist you with additional information.
Thank you for choosing OrthoNY for your orthopaedic care and for helping us keep you safe and well.

You’ve just been in a car crash and your adrenaline is pumping. You don’t feel any real pain at the moment, don’t think any bones are broken, and you feel lucky to have escaped any serious injuries, so you head home. In a few days though, you begin to notice pain and some strange stiffness in parts of your body.
If you experience tingling, pain, stiffness, and cramping in your hand from using your smartphone, we could suggest you stop using it for about a month. That advice would most likely help, but we can hear you laughing now since we all know that isn’t remotely in the realm of possibilities.
