DescriptionSince 1987 Blue Ridge Bone & Joint/EmergeOrtho doctors have been providing full service orthopedic care including workers’ compensation services. With that in mind BRBJ/EO doctors are extremely excited to partner with MAHEC to present BRBJ/EO’s first Workers’ Compensation Symposium. As members of an independent, privately owned orthopedic practice BRBJ/EO doctors are recognized as one of Western North Carolina’s leaders in providing experienced treatment for bone, joint and muscle injuries and conditions. With 20 fellowship trained doctors BRBJ/EO is uniquely positioned to deliver quality workers’ compensation care.
As is true with all of BRBJ/EO patient encounters, we understand our goal for injured workers is deliver optimal, cost conscious, timely musculoskeletal treatment and care. Our delivery model focuses on returning the injured employee to the proper work status, while obtaining quality outcomes.
This symposium will provide an opportunity for attendees to learn about the assessment and treatment of specific orthopedic diagnoses typically found in the workers’ compensation population. During the symposium the audience will be able to ask questions of the presenting doctors, as well as take advantage of the opportunity to meet and interact with colleagues and peers to discuss workers’ compensation issues from a variety of viewpoints.
