Orthopaedic injuries are very common in the workplace, and Dr. Oh has successfully treated numerous patients who injured their shoulder, elbow, or knee while at work.
Disorders treated include shoulder dislocation, rotator cuff tear, labral tear, frozen shoulder, clavicle fracture, biceps tears, triceps tears, elbow fracture, elbow dislocation, knee ligament (ACL) tear, and meniscus tear. He also specializes in revision “re-do” procedures for failed surgeries of the shoulder, elbow, and knee.
Dr. Oh’s goal during the initial consultation appointment is to provide an accurate diagnosis and to implement a treatment plan to correct the problem. A patient’s initial appointment usually consists of a thorough history and physical examination as well as diagnostic x-rays. If additional imaging studies are appropriate, then an MRI or CT scan will be ordered in an expedited manner.
If there is a nurse case manager who is working with you, then please inform our office staff of the name and contact information for your nurse case manager. Dr. Oh believes that efficient communication with nurse case managers is essential to provide good service while caring for patients with a work injury.
If you are seeking a second opinion from Dr. Oh, please bring the following materials to the appointment.
- Office notes from treating physician
- Operative reports of procedures that had previously been performed
Radiographic studies such as X-ray, MRI, CT scan on a CD. Please make sure to obtain written reports of the studies (these may be obtained from the Hospital or imaging center) in addition to the actual images on the CD.
