Dr. Morton is now offering a new virtual lifestyle health program in partnership with Prescribe FIT to provide more comprehensive and consistent orthopedic care to his patients.

Prescribe FIT is a proven lifestyle program—not a fad diet or short-lived workout plan—that guides orthopedic patients to improve their health at home by focusing on the root causes of their musculoskeletal (MSK) pain and/or arthritic conditions.

With small changes to nutrition, physical activity, and lifestyle, Prescribe FIT will serve as a virtual extension of our orthopedic practice to help patients decrease weight, reduce pain, improve mobility, and better prepare for and recover from surgery.

Prescribe FIT is also covered by insurance through Medicare, Medicaid, and most commercial insurance carriers. Our team will help patients confirm their benefits eligibility and financial responsibility prior to enrollment.

How it works:

  1. Once enrolled, patients are matched with a dedicated Care Coordinator from Prescribe FIT who will call weekly to offer personalized support and recommendations that support healthy lifestyle changes
  2. Each week, patients will set goals to gradually increase their physical activity, as well as learn about healthier eating.
  3. Patients will be provided with a Bluetooth scale that pairs with a smart device to send daily body weight readings to their orthopedic physician.

Dr. Morton strives to provide highly-effective, comprehensive, and individualized orthopedic care that will ensure your long-term health and wellness. That is why he chose to partner with Prescribe FIT to offer their proven at-home lifestyle program.
