Tennessee Orthopedic Doctors for Injured Workers 

Workers’ Compensation Services

Quality patient care is instrumental to recovery of work injuries. At Pinnacle Surgical Orthopedics, Dr. Sean Kaminsky and Dr. Malcom Baxter, along with our physical & occupational therapy team, works with Tennessee workers and employers to minimize lost time, protect employees from injury, and safely rehabilitate employees to get them back to work and their busy lives as soon as possible.

As an experienced workers’ comp specialist, Dr. Kaminsky is part of the Tennessee Bureau of Workers’ Compensation’s Certified Physician Program, as well as Tennessee’s Medical Impairment Rating (MIR) Registry. With our surgeons and our physical & occupational therapy team, you can feel confident in the quality of our care for our patients who suffer hand, wrist, forearm, elbow, shoulder, or knee injuries.
