How to track progress of patients having a ream and run when they live over 1,000 miles away

For us, the key to closely following patients after the ream and run is the 'lateral supine photo'.
Here are three examples

1 day post op after second side ream and run (first done 6 months ago) - 2018 miles away

1 day post op after second side ream and run (first done 3 years ago) - 2327 miles away

3 weeks post op - 1438 miles away

The point is that with this simple photo - which can be sent by cell phone - we can track progress and make changes in the rehabilitation program as needed. With this approach, the distance becomes irrelevant.
