Workers’ Compensation


Center for Sports Medicine and Orthopaedics is proud to provide the best orthopaedic care to our Workers’ Compensation (WC) community. Our goal is for the WC process to go as smoothly as possible for everyone involved. We strive to provide the proper resources and documentation in a timely manner, by providing same-day appointments for your employees. Our doctors are supported by an incredible team of physician assistants, nurses, therapists, trainers, and receptionists, along with referral, business office, and call center personnel. We have several locations for your convenience: McCallie Ave, Parkridge, Gunbarrel, Hixson, Cleveland, and Sequatchie Valley.
