If you have undergone surgery at Penn Medicine, we offer a convenient and accessible way to have a follow up appointment with a Penn surgeon. Our telemedicine program offers virtual visits via mobile video through myPennMedicine.

You may be eligible for this service based on your geographic location and condition. Not all Penn Medicine providers offer telemedicine services. Please contact your provider to determine if they participate and check back periodically as more providers are being added monthly. For more information or to determine eligibility, please call 800-789-7366 (PENN).

This service is available to patients considered low-risk with no complications. A virtual visit is appropriate for a general follow up, wound incision care, pain assessment, symptom assessment, or medication prescription.
