When a job-related injury occurs, the injured worker is asked to find a specialist to evaluate and treat their condition for worker's compensation. Patients receiving worker's compensation benefits may undergo evaluation by the employer's doctor or local Omaha physicians. According to Nebraska law, injured workers have the right to choose their evaluating physician. It is essential to choose an orthopedic specialist with experience and integrity when providing workers compensation evaluation and 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 and require a comprehensive, personalized treatment plan. As an experienced hand and upper extremity specialist, I understand the unique challenges presented by industrial injuries and injured worker's needs. I believe in working closely with my patients to develop appropriate work restrictions.
