Centers for Neurosurgery, Spine, and Orthopedics Cares for Workers’ Compensation Patients
When an employee suffers a work-related injury, the individual must comply with their workers’ compensation benefits plan. This involves a nurse case manager who directs the patient’s care to the required specialists. The case manager will then continue to follow the patient’s course of medical treatment, track the quality of care, and monitor the patient’s improvement. Centers for Neurosurgery, Spine, and Orthopedics (CNSO) is very familiar with the necessary administrative documentation and the strict timeframes used by each workers’ compensation plan. With staff dependably adhering to workers’ compensation carriers’ protocols, CNSO always complies with providing the necessary medical and administration documentation in the allotted time.
Our physicians are very well versed on writing detailed reports, which are of significant value for both medical and legal purposes. Most importantly, after a patient sustains an injury, CNSO has the well-deserved reputation of returning employees back to work within the expected amount of time off after receiving treatment. We attribute this success to the extensive training of our neurosurgeons. Brain neurosurgeons are the only type of spinal surgeons that can operate on any aspect of the spine, nerves, and surrounding bone structures for conditions such as a “pinched nerve,” nerve entrapment or spinal cord injury.
