Athletic Orthopedics & Knee Center is a leader in the evaluation and treatment of injured workers with emphasis on complex cases. We are committed to getting each patient back to their preinjury status and back to work as quickly as possible.
Get better Faster and Back to Work
Our doctors and physical therapists work closely with the employer, adjuster, and case manager to ensure that we are always communicating effectively with the entire Work Comp Care Team. We believe that communication is the key to successful management of the injured worker.
This knowledge has allowed us to develop a plan of care that is specific to each patient’s need which results in a rapid recovery and return to work.
- Expedited office notes to the Work Comp Care Team (employer, adjuster, case manager and physical therapist) in order to facilitate the approval process for recommended treatment.
- Providing a work status report immediately following the office evaluation. The patient receives their report at the same time as we send the report to the Work Comp Care Team.
- Outlining and communicating a detailed treatment plan for returning the employee to work and an expected MMI date to the Work Comp Care Team.
- Explaining expectations to each patient so they have a clear understanding of their treatment. Understanding the expectations gives the patient more confidence in the care of their work injury.
Specialists in Orthopedic Surgery, Occupational Medicine, and Workers’ Compensation
The highly trained physicians at Athletic Orthopedics & Knee Center have extensive experience and understanding of Workers’ Compensation. We recognize that the injured worker may feel uneasy seeing a physician who was chosen by someone other than themselves.
Our main goal is to build rapport and trust with your employees, so they understand that their care is a priority to us. We treat every patient with the care and compassion they all deserve. We are committed to getting them back to their pre-injury status and back to work as quickly as possible.
We work closely with the employer, adjuster, case manager, and physical therapist to ensure we are communicating effectively with the entire Work Comp Care Team. We firmly believe communication is the key to the successful management of the insured worker.
