Dr. France and the staff at
the Center understand the special challenges presented by occupational
injuries and have developed a comprehensive program centered on the
claimant's expedited return to pre-injury functional status. Accelerated
return to full job duties is another cornerstone of our Workers'
Compensation care policy. Whenever clinically appropriate, modified
duties are specified and encouraged until the claimant can once again
fulfill their full duty occupational responsibilities.
We know that prompt, accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment of
musculoskeletal injuries are vital to returning the injured worker to
their occupation and thereby reducing both medical costs to the insurer
and on the job time loss to the employer.
The Center specializes in both non-operative treatment and arthroscopic
surgical approaches for care of shoulder and knee injuries. Further
details of this can be found in the
Specialties & Procedures area of this website. Please feel free to
call and discuss any particular case with our highly trained staff to
see if our services can benefit your claimant's expedited return to
their work responsibilities.
Our Workers' Compensation Services include:
• Board Certified and Fellowship Trained Orthopaedic Shoulder / Knee
• Prompt appointment scheduling
• Reliably consistent communication with case management professionals
via same day faxed status reports and faxed formal dictated reports for
every office visit
• 2nd Opinion and Surgical Opinion Consultations
• Independent Medical Evaluations (IME's)
• Arthroscopic surgical procedures promoting quicker recuperation and
return to maximum functional status.
We do not accept out-of-state Workers' Compensation or Usual &
Customary (U&C) fee schedules. If a Workmans' Compensation carrier does
not participate with any of our in-network TPA's, we do consider negotiated competitive rates.
