A space for sharing our experience by answering questions that others like you have asked before.

Can I see an orthopedic surgeon near me same day or after hours?

DoctorsinItaly is a very fast way to get an appointment with a doctor but it cannot substitute trauma emergency centers and it is not meant for emergency needs (i.e. potentially life-threatening). Your request will reach all English-speaking orthopedic surgeons nearby within minutes. Available orthopedists will offer a time to see you, so you can pick the first option. Even the best doctors have last minute cancellations, so there is a good chance you can be seen today.  Find out more about how it works >

How much will the appointment with an orthopedic surgeon cost me?

Each orthopedic surgeon decides the fees to charge, so prices vary depending on who you choose to see. You will know all the prices before booking, so you can select one that is reasonable and within your budget. Generally the cost of an orthopedic consultation goes from about 90 euro up to 300 euro approximately. Find out more about the prices >

Can an orthopedic surgeon see my child?

Yes, of course. Some orthopedic surgeons are specialised in management of children. With DoctorsinItaly you will be able to reach all orthopedic surgeons who see children and adolescents, so they can assist you. 

Can the orthopedist give me a prescription?

Yes, the doctor will provide you with a signed paper prescription that you can fill at any pharmacy. Boxes and instructions on medications will be in Italian, but your orthopedic doctor speaks English fluently can help by explaining exactly how to take the medication. Make sure to take notes on this to avoid any confusion, and contact the doctor if you have any doubts.

Are there available orthopedic surgeons everywhere in Italy?

DoctorsinItaly is used by a growing number of orthopedists across Italy, not only in large cities such as Rome and Milan, so it’s always worth making a request. When you make a request for orthopedic care, orthopedic surgeons in the area receive it instantly on their mobile phone. You will get their responses as soon as they can reply, so you can choose the time and location you prefer. Although there is no guarantee that there is a orthopedic doctor on call, there is a good chance someone will be able to see you.

What happens if I need to have orthopedic surgery?

Any orthopedic surgeon who cares for your health will need to examine you first, have a thorough consultation, see any imaging you have, such as x-rays, MRI, CT scan, or ultrasound, and go over your case with you. Then you can plan the surgery together and book the hospital admission. This process can be very fast, for urgent needs such as a broken leg, arm, shoulder, knee, finger. For a complex or a planned procedures, such as ACL reconstruction, hip replacement, or implant replacement, it may take a few days or weeks from the first consultation to the surgery. When time allows it, getting a second opinion before a surgery is a good idea, so you can better understand all of your options.
