When a job related injury occurs, the injured worker is asked to find a specialist to evaluate and treat their condition. Patients receiving workers' compensation benefits may undergo evaluation by the employer's doctor, or by a community physician. It is important to choose an orthopedic specialist that has not only the experience but also the integrity when providing worker's compensation treatment.
Early diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal injuries are the key to returning an injured worker to their job as soon as possible. Most worker's compensation claims are orthopedic in nature and require comprehensive, personalized treatment plan. As an experienced hand and upper extremity specialist, I understand the special challenges presented by industrial injuries and injured worker's needs. I believe in working closely with my patients to develop appropriate work restrictions.
