Worker’s Compensation

Injured at Work?

The physicians and staff at Orthopaedics East & Sports Medicine Center are Eastern North Carolina’s experts in orthopedic care for work-related injuries covered under worker’s compensation (WC). We understand the unique challenges presented by the workplace and the value to both the employee and employer of early intervention, accurate diagnosis and comprehensive treatment.

Worker’s Compensation Services

We believe in partnering with the employee, employer, case manager, and the insurance carrier to ensure that post-injury care and rehabilitation goes smoothly. Our physicians have extensive experience in work-related injury diagnosis and treatment. Our services include:

  • Appointments available within 24 hours for acute injuries
  • Weekend coverage available with our Extended Care Clinic
  • On-site MRI and X-Ray available
  • On-site physical therapy staff to aid in the recovery process
  • We can provide second opinions and Independent Medical Exams (IME)
Documentation and Communication
We provide medical notes to the employer and carrier/adjuster within 48 hours of our evaluation and each office visit, including return-to-work issues, to ensure continuity of care and case management. Our team also provides partial permanent disability (PPD) case ratings, when appropriate or necessary, upon completion of the employee’s care.
