The physicians and staff at Lakeshore Orthopaedics understand and respect that there are unique challenges presented by industrial injuries and illnesses. We have extensive knowledge and experience in providing care for patients with work-related conditions.
We understand that early diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal injuries is the key to returning an injured worker to the job as soon as possible. We endeavor to reduce medical costs and time lost at work, while at the same time keeping the employers and insurance carrier apprised of the patient's treatment plan through detailed and frequent communication.
We believe in working closely with the patient, the employer and the carrier to develop appropriate work restrictions or light duty assignments. We understand the value of work-injury prevention and provide education to our patients in proper body mechanics and post-injury rehabilitation. Additionally, our physicians have received special training in documentation for worker's compensation reports. This ensures that our written communication meets all accepted legal standards, in order to protect both the employee and employer.
