Session Description:  Orthopedic problems, whether acute or chronic, are often overlooked and undertreated in the workers’ compensation realm. This can lead to a significant delay in return to work, increases in claims expenditures, unnecessary pain and suffering for the worker and legal liabilities for the employer. While performing a live-streamed shoulder surgery, typical of a procedure that employees may undergo, learn about the surgical procedure and the injuries, both on and off the job, that indicate the need for such a procedure and gain some coaching tips for advising employee what to expect.
