|Out-of-Town Patients Save Time and Travel Expenses on Follow-Up Appointments|
Our Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery Center is using technology to connect out-of-town patients to surgeons for follow-up visits. Patients can visit their local hospital where they can be connected to their surgeon at St. Elizabeth via our Nebraska Telehealth Network.
The Nebraska Statewide Telehealth Network consists of every hospital and health department in the state sharing the mission of making health care more accessible and available to all Nebraskans through the use of video technology.
You can save time away from work and travel expenses to Lincoln by utilizing this service. Face-to-face visits will always be scheduled for the first visit after surgery and are available if you wish.
If you live outside of Lincoln and are interested in telehealth follow-up visits, please discussÂ with your surgeon at your two-week visit following surgery.
