An Entire Team of Specialists for Those Injured on the Job

At EmergeOrtho, we consider injured workers industrial athletes. We use our expertise to provide cost-effective, optimal and efficient care so injured employees can return to work, providing the greatest outcome for the lowest cost.

We are committed to the health of your injured employee, their access to the best care available and their ability to return to work as quickly as possible. We have an entire team of board-certified and fellowship-trained specialists who understand the importance of communication, access and consistent treatment when aiding those hurt while on the job.

Our Workers’ Compensation specialists work closely with employers, insurance companies, and rehabilitation consultants to ensure that the process following an injury is efficient and effective. We are results-oriented, emphasizing ability rather than disability. Our specialists encourage patient involvement in the treatment process, which often means a faster rehabilitation and earlier return to work, lowering health care costs and enhancing your company’s productivity.
