Workers Comp Care


You don’t have to be a claims adjustor to know that there is an ever-increasing need for qualified treatment of injured workers. When an employee is injured on the job, Dr. Greendyke is committed to meeting their needs. That includes prompt access to orthopedic care, careful attention to detail, a strong emphasis on quality outcomes and rapid return to work and productivity.

With over 30 years’ experience, the professionals at RiversEdge Orthopedics are in close communication with employers, insurance companies, claims adjustors, the Idaho Industrial Commission and all involved medical professionals – to ensure the most cost-effective care and the best results for the injured worker. We provide independent medical evaluations (IME) and impairment ratings services for most Workers’ Compensation Carriers.


We treat the most common work-related injuries conservatively and resort to surgery only when it is absolutely necessary for the injured worker.

Our main areas of orthopedic specialty care are:

  • Treatment for all injured workers
  • Fracture care (broken bone)
  • Arthroscopic knee surgery
  • ACL repair and reconstruction
  • Shoulder rotator cuff tear repairs
  • Carpal tunnel surgery
  • Epicondylitis
  • Lacerations
  • Sprain/strain injuries

We understand that the greatest expense with Workers’ Compensation injuries is time lost from work. Returning injured workers back to modified duty as soon as possible, and then to maximum medical improvement, is our top priority.


We also provide comprehensive Workers’ Compensation services in close cooperation with the Idaho Industrial Commission and Workers’ Compensation insurance carriers. We help people who suffer work-related musculoskeletal injuries caused by accidental trauma, poor ergonomics and overuse/repetitive-motion type injuries. RiversEdge Orthopedics’ comprehensive Workers’ Compensation services include:

  • Comprehensive orthopedic care
  • Fast-track consult in 24 to 48 hours
  • Injured worker sees orthopedic surgeon, not PA or NP
  • Prompt safe return to limited-duty activities
  • Timely work status reports
  • Second surgical opinions
  • Record reviews
