Workers' Compensation

Your workforce is often like a sports team, working together as a unit. The work can be physically demanding and strenuous, sometimes leading to injuries or other problems. Workers' Comp injuries often result from improper lifting, slipping and falling, or from performing repetitive tasks. Working with machinery and heavy equipment can also lead to work-related injuries.

Orthopaedic care, either surgical or non-surgical, is needed for injuries or problems affecting the musculoskeletal system, including bones, joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves.

Evaluations provided include:

  • New Patient Appointments
  • IMEs
  • Second Opinion Evaluations
  • Ratings
  • Medical Records Review

Workers' Comp services offered include: 

  • Surgery of the full upper extremity
  • Surgery of the full lower extremity
  • Sports medicine
  • Arthroscopic surgery of the shoulder, elbow, knee, and ankle
  • Total knee and partial knee replacement

Early diagnosis and treatment of on-the-job injuries are key to ensuring that workers are able to return to work more quickly and at the highest capacity possible. Most Workers' Comp patients are seen in our office as quickly as possible after an issue has been identified.

Dr. Shah and his team have the unique perspective of understanding first the needs of the patient, and then the needs of others involved in the worker's care, such as the client or employer, insurance companies, case managers and referring physicians. Our team provides full and clear information and detail regarding the doctor's findings, the cause of the accident and a proposed plan of treatment.  Keeping those lines of communication open and keeping everyone informed and involved is a vital part of making sure your best team is able to perform.

Whether it is a sports team or your company team, Dr. Shah and his staff will get the key members of your team back into action -- healthy and ready to perform -- as quickly as possible.
