TREATING INJURIES AT THE LOUISIANA HAND TO SHOULDER CENTER

The Louisiana Hand to Shoulder Center is a leader in diagnosing and treating work-related injuries and personal injuries (such as automobile accidents) involving the hand, wrist, elbow, and shoulder. Our physicians and staff are committed to helping workers’ compensation patients and those who have suffered personal injuries return to work and their daily activities as quickly and safely as possible.


For patients, we provide specialty-trained care for the hand, wrist, elbow, and shoulder. Our workers’ compensation team first considers nonsurgical, conservative treatment, and will only recommend surgery as a last resort.


For employers, case managers, and claims adjusters, we strive to ensure an efficient and trouble-free process in scheduling appointments, answering questions, and providing assistance wherever needed.  Our physicians are board-certified in hand and upper extremity who understand the Louisiana Workers’ Compensation system.

INDEPENDENT MEDICAL EXAMS (IME) or SECOND MEDICAL OPINIONS  

Louisiana Hand to Shoulder Center’s board-certified orthopedic hand and upper extremity surgeons are often asked to provide comprehensive independent medical evaluations or second medial opinions for injuries and conditions of the hand, wrist, elbow, and shoulder. Evaluations are conducted to determine if prior diagnosis and treatment were accurate and whether further care/treatment may be necessary.
