Workers' Compensation

Cedars-Sinai Kerlan-Jobe Institute is one of the nation's leaders for treatment of workers' compensation cases, with an emphasis on complex cases. Our innovative surgeries were developed to help high-level athletes get back to peak performance in as little time as possible. Cedars-Sinai Kerlan-Jobe Institute physicians offer the same level of care to injured workers as they do professional athletes.

Our physicians are trained and experienced in treating all types of workers' compensation injuries—helping employees get back to work faster. We use minimally-invasive surgeries and comprehensive physical therapy to ensure that our patients are not only healing fully, but healing quickly. Don’t let injuries keep you from working. Let our orthopaedic specialists at one of our many locations help you return to form.

Make an Appointment

We realize the best possible outcome in any workers' compensation case depends on the medicals skills of the physician and the treatment received as soon as possible from the onset of injury. Fortunately, our physicians are among the best in their field.

If you have an injury, request an appointment as soon as possible. Please make sure to have your employer information, workers' compensation insurance carrier information including your claim number, date of injury, and adjuster information ready to provide to our representative. Once you are registered in our system, please allow time for our office to obtain authorization along with your medical records prior to being scheduled. If you already have records and/or an authorization, you can help expedite the process by faxing them to (310) 216-9389.
