PHYSICIAN ASSISTANTS

Physician Assistants in orthopedics perform history and physicals, order and interpret diagnostic tests and prescribe medications and therapy. In addition to first assisting at surgery, procedures provided by PAs include wound closures and debridements, injection of joints and fracture management. In the hospital, PAs conduct post-op rounds, write orders, and perform admission and discharge work. They all have broad medical training at accredited programs and work with all of our sub-specialty orthopedic surgeons both in the clinic and the hospital setting.

 

Our Physician Assistants have been specifically chosen due to their outstanding performance within their training programs and professional positions. We must underscore that we only offer positions to join our team to physician assistants that have performed within the top echelon of their training programs and professional positions.  Each works closely with our physicians in a supportive role both in the clinic and hospital environment to provide the very best care within a team-oriented environment.
