How Heartland spine institute makes life easier

There are any number of ways someone can get hurt on the job. So when a patient or employee is injured at work, you need a resource you can count on for exceptional care and the most effective treatment. Particularly for potentially costly spinal injuries, back and neck problems or carpal/cubital tunnel syndrome.

Dr. Frank Hayward and his neurosurgical team at Heartland Spine Institute are extremely diligent about getting people back to work faster – with fewer surgeries. Dr. Hayward determines the causation and treats conservatively, avoiding costly surgery unless it is absolutely necessary.

Our years of experience with Workers’ Compensation cases mean we maintain high levels of communication with involved physicians, employers, attorneys and insurance companies. We talk to employers to learn what each patient requires for return to work. We’re fast and efficient with claims. And we’re known for giving every patient the most personalized, compassionate and effective care.

We Help Employees & patients from all walks of life

We often see patients who work in coal mines, on barges, in manufacturing, construction trades, wholesale distribution and retail industries. We help people who perform physical labor and people who sit at desks and work at computers.

We see men and women of all ages who need to work so they can support their families. And Dr. Hayward is extremely sensitive to their individual needs and health concerns.

Helping workers' comp. adjusters & attorneys

In addition to nearly a decade of experience working with claims adjusters, Dr. Hayward is an independent medical examiner (IME) and is often requested to give expert testimony in litigated cases, both as the treating physician and as a bipartisan physician.

What people say about us?

I had a spinal decompression done at three levels. Although all pain is not gone, the surgery did exactly what Dr. Hayward had hoped it would. What impressed me most about Dr. Hayward was his willingness to have me get a second opinion. He did not want me going into surgery without hearing what someone else thought. He even went as far to tell me that just because he was the first neurosurgeon that I had seen, he expected me go where I felt most comfortable if I did have surgery.
