Workers' Compensation

The Excelsior Orthopaedics team is dedicated to delivering superior musculoskeletal treatment and care aimed at restoring function and returning the injured worker back to maximum employment potential. 

Excelsior Orthopaedics has developed this page as a resource to all workers compensation patients to help make this process as smooth as possible and to facilitate a safe return to work.   It is our goal that the information provided will help to ensure the timely authorization for initial consults, tests and surgeries (if needed).

For employers, we provide quick and easy access to referring injured employees to our orthopaedic specialist and Urgent Care - Excelsior Express. We make every effort to see patients as soon after the injury as possible to ensure prompt and timely treatment and management of acute employee injuries. This includes setting up diagnostic testing and other ancillary services (as needed).
