  • 24-Hour office visit and work status reports
  • Minimum Monthly Follow-up on Active Claims
  • Evidence-based return-to-work and discharge practices

Our goal to return employees back to their busy lives as quickly and safely as possible is supported by:

  • Accessibility for early diagnosis and treatment for the injured patient
  • Ongoing communication with employers, case managers, and insurance personnel to provide prompt conservative treatment
  • Board-certified, fellowship-trained expertise across multiple orthopaedic sub-specialties

With Tucson Orthopaedic Institute's unparalleled number of fellowship-trained surgeons, our commitment to orthopaedic research and up-to-date technology, you can feel confident when referring work comp patients to our practice. Plus, our on-site physical therapy facilities and coordinated patient care set us well above other providers.

As a convenience, injured workers may print and complete their portion of the Arizona Workers & Physicians Report of Injury Form.

This form must be completed in full and submitted at time of your appointment for your claims to be processed. There is no electronic submission. Forms are also available at Tucson Ortho offices.
