A: There is no set percentage for surgery "per se". In Texas DWC has adopted the 4th Edition of the AMA Guides so medical providers must adhere to the guidelines set forth in that publication. The percentage assigned for an injured worker is based on the type of compensable injury sustained, considered along with measurements taken such as the loss of range of motion, function or atrophy. To find out about your impairment I would recommend speaking with your treating doctor or a lawyer familar with workers compensation. Good luck with your case. Roy Warren; San Marcos, Texas
