Information for new patients


Q: When should I see an orthopedic specialist?

  • If your joint pain is keeping you from participating in daily tasks or enjoying your favorite activities, it is probably time to seek orthopedic care.

Q: Do I need a referral to make an appointment with UT Health Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Institute?

  • You do not need a referral to be seen by one of our orthopedic doctors, although some insurance companies and plans do require you to be referred by a primary care physician to receive health services. To ensure no referral is needed, please call your insurance company.

Q: What is diagnostic testing, and how does it help me?

  • Diagnostic testing helps our physicians determine the cause of your orthopedic issues. Most orthopedic injuries or conditions require the use of imaging and radiology tests like X-rays, bone scans or other exams, which are painless. To diagnose arthritis, the patient may be asked to give a sample of joint fluid for laboratory testing. This process is minimally invasive and should not cause severe pain.

    For questions about the diagnosis process, talk to your orthopedic caregiver.
