My main focus is helping people with musculoskeletal disability associated with workplace claims or road traffic accidents maximise function by ensuring accurate diagnosis, tailored treatment and, wherever possible, working with the person to achieve a safe, sustainable return to rewarding and good work.
I provide an urgent patient management service to GP's, orthopaedic/neurosurgeons and other
referrers at Kent Town, Mount Barker and McLaren Vale.
Independent Medical Examination
An Independent Medical Examination (IME) can be arranged if your claims agent, representative or employer wants a comprehensive impartial expert opinion. This requires Dr Economos to take a detailed history and examination. If needed, the person is entitled to bring a chaperone for the examination.
The referrer normally wants an opinion about diagnosis, possible causes, further treatment, current and future capacity for work and prognosis.
I am accredited to provide IMEs in SA, NSW and Victoria. This service is provided at Kent Town, Mount Barker, McLaren Vale and Gawler. Dr Economos looks forward to resuming face to face services in Sydney.
Permanent Impairment and Injury Scale Value Assessments
Dr Economos is accredited to undertake these for injuries to the spine, upper or lower limbs at work or from road traffic accidents in SA and NSW. For injuries at work in SA, the worker will choose the examiner from a list provided by the claims agent.
