At Prisk Orthopaedics and Wellness, we provide cutting-edge orthopaedic care to patients for a wide variety of injuries, including those that may have been sustained at work. As a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon, Dr. Victor Prisk is specially trained to offer treatment in a number of areas of the body, and for acute, traumatic injuries as well as those that occur during repetitive motion.
Since work-related injuries vary in location and severity, it’s important to find a physician who understands all parts of your musculoskeletal system. While Dr. Prisk does not operate on all parts of the body, he offers evaluations for any joint, bone, tendon, ligament, or area of muscular pain, and can assess your need for conservative or operative care of any extremity or level of the spine after your injury. Having been an academic clinician at both major Pittsburgh health systems, he can also offer direct referrals to the best surgeons for your condition as needed.
Getting injured on the job can be a frightening experience, but a physician who understands your concerns about cost and downtime can help you develop an effective treatment plan that will get you back to work as soon as possible. If you’ve been injured, don’t wait to schedule an appointment at Prisk Orthopaedics and Wellness today.
In addition to providing evaluations and treatment for work-related injuries, Dr. Prisk is also licensed to serve as a medical consultant for legal purposes, including during cases relating to workers’ compensation claims. Some of the services Dr. Prisk is able to provide include:
If you are an attorney or a patient involved in a workers’ compensation dispute, reach out to Prisk Orthopaedic Wellness for assistance in getting the compensation you deserve.

Each individual is different, and your recovery time will depend on the severity of your injury as well as your unique needs. During your treatment, Dr. Prisk will work with you to develop a timeline that leads to effective results and a long term recovery. As eager as you may be to get back to work, it’s important that you follow all recommendations and complete physical therapy after your injury -- if you don’t it’s likely that you will re-injure yourself, leading to an even longer recovery period. Communicate closely with your employer during this process, and refer to your work restrictions as provided by Dr. Prisk whenever you need to.
In order to avoid injuries on the job, employers and workers need to work together to ensure the safety and wellness of everyone. Some of the best ways to do this include:
