Top Fort Myers Orthopedic Doctors for Work-Related Injuries
Orthopedic injuries can often be caused by work-related accidents. The physicians at Orthopedic Specialists of SW Florida provide non-surgical as well as surgical management of work-related injuries. All of our providers are Work Comp certified by the State of Florida. We have a dedicated Work Comp team who work together with the physician, patient, nurse case manager, adjuster, and employer to coordinate the medical treatment plan for the patient.
It is very important to report your injury to your employer as soon as possible. Even the most minor of injuries can develop into major health problems. Your employer should report your injury to their Workers’ Compensation carrier who will then assign an adjuster to your claim. This adjuster should direct you as to where to go to seek medical treatment.
We focus on early determination of your diagnosis, and development of a personalized treatment plan in order to allow for a more rapid recovery, results will vary by individual. We offer comprehensive services including professional evaluation and management, full-body accredited MRI, physical and occupational therapy including certified hand therapists, digital X-ray, ultrasound, and injections.
