Workers Comp Artificial Disc Replacement

Artificial disc replacement (ADR) is a device or implant used to replace a diseased or damaged intervertebral disc. Injured workers may be offered this option by their orthopedic surgeon and workers compensation insurance can cover the cost in Wisconsin. After removing what's left of the worn out disc, the ADR is inserted in the space between two lumbar vertebrae. The goal is to replace the damaged disc while keeping your normal spinal motion. Relatively new in the United States; in the U.S. the first lumbar artificial disc surgery was done in clinical trials in October 2001; the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) approved the use of the lumbar ADRs in October 2004. This blog will discuss ADR generally in the workers comp context. Medical information should only be had from expert health care providers not an attorney's internet blog.

Do you have a broken bone? You’re likely to know it

The treatment of frostbite can be complicated

As someone expected to work outdoors in the state of Wisconsin during the winter months, you may have serious concerns about your health and safety. For example, if frostbite sets in, you understand the impact it can have on your health and ability to earn a living in the future.

Workers Compensation Lumbar Fusion

Lumbar fusion is a common type of surgery for workers with a serious low back injury. A fusion is a surgical procedure that joins two or more bones (in this case vertebrae) together into one solid bone. The procedure is called a posterior fusion because the surgeon works on the back, or posterior, of the spine. Posterior fusion procedures in the lumbar spine are used to treat work-related spine instability, severe degenerative disc disease, and fractures in the lumbar spine.
