Workers' Compensation

We offer a comprehensive workers’ compensation program that benefits the injured employee. The doctors and staff of Middle Georgia Orthopaedics are committed to providing workers’ compensation patients with the highest level of care and compassion. Through our workers’ compensation program, our specialists strive to restore your function and mobility and get you back to work in a timely and efficient manner.

Our program is unique in that Dr. Malone functions as our Physician Gatekeeper for workers' compensation. Dr. Malone is a physiatrist who is a board-certified physical medicine and rehabilitation specialist and a fellow of the American Academy of Disability Evaluating Physicians. His fellowship training was orthopaedic-based at the American Sports Medicine Institute in Birmingham, Alabama.

For patients, we provide prompt, specialty-trained orthopaedic care for virtually all areas of the body. Our workers’ compensation team first considers nonsurgical, conservative treatment, and will only recommend surgery if absolutely necessary.

For nurse case managers, claims adjusters, attorneys, and employers, we ensure an efficient and trouble-free process in scheduling immediate appointments, submitting status reports and paperwork, answering questions, and providing assistance wherever needed.

We Provide:

  • Functional Capacity Assessments
  • Impairment Ratings
  • Work Hardening & Conditioning Programs
  • Ergonomic Evaluations
  • Job Site Analysis
  • W/C Rx Available Onsite

If you are a patient in need of immediate treatment, a second opinion, or an independent medical examination, Middle Georgia Orthopaedics offers an array of general and subspecialty orthopaedic services.

Our programs are focused on reducing medical costs and time lost from work, while providing the highest level of care to the patient through our state-of-the-art facilities. We communicate and work closely with employers and case managers to assist patients through the process.
