How can I assist the Treating Doctor and/or the patient in taking the trauma out of acquiring the very best outcome for the patients?
My role is distinctly different from that of any other specialist, Treating Doctor or Para-medical personnel involved in the management of the patient. I will be able to advise about the suitability of workers compensation or third-party liability on a medical point of view, as well as the necessary treatment or diagnostic procedures for your patients.
I always liaise with and if necessary advice the Treating Doctor regarding the patients readiness for work. I also provide the insight on "How the NSW Workers Compensation, Motor Vehicle Accident Compensation and 3rd-Party Accident Compensation Claim operates in NSW for the treatment of the Injured Person".
In this way, the Treating Doctor is able to leverage his valuable
time by referring his patients to me (Dr Prasad), a dedicated, senior and
experienced Doctor working as a Senior Injury Management Consultant. With my
extensive (40 years) knowledge and experience, you are ensuring that your
patients receive the correct information in order to acquire the best possible
outcome. This will give the Treating Doctor and the injured patient reassurance
that they are being given first class advice and personal attention.
Senior Injury Management
After graduating in 1968, followed by a Masters degree in Orthopaedic Surgery in 1972, I migrated to Australia as an Orthopaedic and Casualty Registrar of Royal Hobart Hospital, Tasmania in 1974.
In 1978 I opened my own Practice in Campbelltown as a General Practitioner together with operating privileges in Campbelltown Public Hospital, Macarthur Private Hospital, Bigg Street Private Hospital, Guildford Heights Private Hospital and Green Oak Private Hospital in Bankstown. After many years, due to my increased workload within my practice, I stopped operating in all hospitals with the exception of Campbelltown Public and Macarthur Private Hospitals.
I was selected as an Injury Management Consultant for Workcover in the year 2000 at the time of its formation, due to my Orthopaedic Training, as well as extensive knowledge of MVA, Third Party and Workcover rules and regulations, together with my wide experience in industrial trauma and work related accidents.
In 2006, I retired from my medical practice, however, my medical colleagues, solicitors, as well as family and friends of previously managed patients, kept asking for my advice and help, particularly in those situations where the insurance company had refused to accept the liability or provide for the cost of treatment. In those circumstances, even if the patient had engaged a solicitor took many months, even a year or two, before something was achieved. In my vast experience over the years I had seen the suffering of these types of patients due to the chronic pain which is compounded by the anxiety of uncertainty, so I decided to return to my practice part time and run it on a semi-charitable basis. In this way, I am able to assist in the management of the patients' condition and alleviate some of the pain, stress, anxiety etc. The patients Treating Doctor (GP or specialist) are able to get all the necessary investigation, and in most cases, treatment as well, whenever needed to manage the injured patients suffering even if the insurance company has denied the liability and refused to pay for the treatment and/or investigation.
The main Pain Management Clinic and Head Office are located at Campbelltown, with well trained office personnel. If there is a necessity then they are also able to liaise with the Injury Management Consultants from insurance companies, rehabilitation providers, physiotherapists, employers, solicitors, unions, etc.
For an appointment, please contact the Practice Manager at the Head Office on (02) 4626 3434 who will be delighted to set up a private consultation with me (Dr Prasad) at any one of the Clinics shown below:
