Workers’ Compensation Program – On the Job
The highly trained and skilled physicians and staff at Florida Orthopaedic Institute are committed to helping all Workers’ Compensation patients get back On The Job as quickly and safely as possible.
On The Job is a program dedicated exclusively to evaluating and treating work-related injuries and conditions by providing the highest level of care and expertise in a timely and efficient manner.
On The Job works closely with nurse case managers, claims adjusters, attorneys, and employers to ensure a comprehensive and trouble-free process. This includes best-in-class treatment for injured workers and professionally responsive and detailed attention to providers.

Our workers’ compensation team first considers nonsurgical, conservative treatment, and will only recommend surgery if absolutely necessary.
