What are common surgical procedures for workplace injuries?
Surgical procedures covered by workers’ compensation cover a wide range. Some of the most common surgical procedures we regularly perform on people injured in workplace accidents include:
- Total Knee Replacement (TKR) Surgery – Serious knee injuries at work are common. That’s why you may be a likely candidate for TKR surgery. Our experienced, New York orthopedic knee surgeons have years of experience performing knee operations. You can count on us when it matters most.
- Total Hip Replacement (THR) Surgery – Falling and breaking your hip can happen in an instant at work. Or if you have physically demanding job, your hip could wear out over time due to strenuous work. Whatever the circumstances, our experienced, New York orthopedic hip surgeons want to help you.
- Shoulder Joint Replacement Surgery – Shoulder injuries on the job can be very painful. Whether you hurt your shoulder in a workplace accident or damaged your shoulder due to constant wear and tear, our New York orthopedic shoulder surgeons know how to effectively treat serious shoulder injuries.
- Foot Reconstruction Surgery – Foot injuries sustained on the job often occur when a large, heavy object falls and crushes someone’s foot. Other times, work-related injuries to the foot happen due to long-term wear and tear. In either case, you can count on our New York orthopedic foot surgeons when it matters most.
- Carpal Tunnel Release Surgery – Carpal tunnel syndrome remains one of the most common and most serious work-related injuries. People who perform repetitive physical tasks often develop carpal tunnel syndrome in their arms, hands and fingers over time. Carpal tunnel release surgery can be an effective way to treat this painful medical condition.
- Wrist Joint Replacement Surgery – Work-related wrist injuries often happen one of two ways – either due to a workplace accident (heavy object crushes wrist) or due to long-term overuse. Our New York orthopedic wrist surgeons can provide the relief you need to get your life back on track.
