Sports clinic brings DME in house

Tuesday, July 18, 2017

VAIL, Colo. – The Steadman Clinic, which offers sports medicine and orthopedic surgery, has added a DME service. In the past, the clinic used third-party vendors to produce and sell DME, whether it’s braces, crutches or boots, but it wanted more influence over what its patients use to recover from their injuries, says Nick Eaton, DME manager at The Steadman Clinic. “By bringing DME in house, we can recommend products that pertain to each provider’s protocol on a patient-specific basis,” he said. The clinic’s patients often need assistance and protection before and after a procedure; others need braces to enable them to have the mobility for normal activity in their lifestyle and to help prevent further injury.
