Scheduling an Appointment with Valley Orthopaedic Specialists

If you have suffered a work-related injury, it’s important to schedule an appointment with a workers compensation specialist as soon as possible. Many employees who experience an injury at their place of work return without proper care and compensation, which can increase the risk of re-injury or further complications. This can also inhibit employees from performing their job duties to their best ability due to pain and stress at the site of injury, a decrease in mobility, and limited physical endurance.

At Valley Orthopaedic Specialists, our goal is to diagnose injuries promptly and offer patients a comprehensive treatment plan to help them quickly and fully recover. Our dedicated team is able to meet and tend to each of our patients’ unique medical needs.

Prompt medical evaluation is key to a full and timely recovery, so if you’ve been injured on the job, contact our office today. Our team of experts will help you schedule an appointment to begin your recovery process, so you can get back to what you do best.
