Workers’ Compensation Center
The Workers’ Compensation Center of Bienville offers a complete workers’ compensation program focused on reducing medical costs and time lost from work, while providing the most comprehensive care to the injured worker. We understand the value of work-injury prevention and provide education to our patients in proper body mechanics, ergonomics and post-injury rehabilitation. We believe in working closely with the patient, the case manager, insurance company and employer to develop appropriate work restrictions and light-duty assignments.
Whether the employee needs immediate treatment, a second opinion or independent medical examination, The Workers’ Compensation Center of Bienville provides the most comprehensive general and subspecialty orthopaedic services available, along with the highest quality equipment and treatment options for your orthopaedic needs.
Same Day / Next Day Appointments
The Workers’ Compensation Center of Bienville provides instant access to your employees. We strive for same day, but guarantee at least next day appointments. Our process is designed to provide the employee the service he/she needs without the unnecessary cost to the employer for an emergency room visit.
To assist employees in getting back on the job, Bienville Orthopaedic Specialists has five locations on the Mississippi Gulf Coast designed for convenience and efficiency, which include:
Our filmless digital diagnostic X-ray system presents a more detailed image to the physician, providing better information to diagnose and treat the patient.
State-of-the-art physical therapy allows constant communication and coordination between the physicians, therapists, patients and case managers. Therapy appointments can be scheduled the same-day as the doctor’s appointment.
Our in-house hand therapy is available at multiple Bienville Orthopaedic locations and our certified hand therapists have over 30 years combined experience.
EMG / NCV
Internal referrals/orders for EMGs to our in-house, fellowship trained Neurologist, coupled with the most technologically advanced equipment, provides a very quick turnaround on performing these tests for our workers’ compensation patients.
MRIs are available on site and again, our goal is to expedite services for our workers’ compensation patients. MRI appointments are usually provided the same day or next day as the doctor’s appointment. MRI results are available within four-hours of the MRI.
The Workers’ Compensation Center of Bienville Orthopaedic Specialists’ main goal is to take care of the concerns of the employee, employer, risk manager and case manager, and to be sure you are well taken care of by the physicians and staff.
