Workers’ Compensation Services

Responsive Care When You Need Us

At Baldwin Bone & Joint, our dedicated workers’ compensation team understands the special challenges presented by industrial injuries. We recognize that early diagnosis and treatment of these injuries are the keys to returning an injured worker to the job as soon as possible, thereby reducing both medical costs and time lost from work.

Our team of fellowship-trained orthopaedic specialists and workers’ compensation experts endeavor to provide responsive medical treatment to the injured worker, while at the same time keeping the employers and insurance carrier apprised of the patient’s treatment plan, progress, and status.
