At Orthopaedic Associates of Marlborough, you can receive all of your orthopedic care at one location. As a licensed Durable Medical Equipment (DME) supplier, we offer a wide variety of braces for our patient’s convenience. Body areas include knees, wrists, and elbows. We also offer crutches, canes, and walkers.
Orthopaedic Associates of Marlborough surgeons are Board Certified with the Fellow American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons and are familiar with all phases of orthopedic treatment and surgery. Our physicians will determine what type of bracing, if any, is appropriate for your condition. In most cases, we will be able to provide this in the office. We will be happy to bill your insurance for any equipment we are able to provide; however, there may be instances where an item is not reimbursable by your insurance company. With some equipment, such as slings, insurance companies simply will not pay for the item. In this sort of instance, we do charge a fee to the patient and payment is required at the time of service. Some insurance companies will make a partial payment and the patient will incur a cost-sharing balance; the patient will receive a bill from Orthopaedic Associates of Marlboro after the insurance company has paid.
You are never required to obtain any bracing through Orthopaedic Associates of Marlborough, we offer this service as a courtesy and convenience to our patients.
Our physicians, physician assistants and medical assistants are all trained in the use of the equipment we provide and are happy to answer any questions you may have. Should your physician feel you require custom fitted bracing that we are not able to provide in our office, we do have orthotic and prosthetic companies we can recommend for your specific needs.
