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.

Inna Sergeychik received her Bachelor Of Science in Biology from Western New England University. She received her Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies from Alderson Broaddus University, WV in 2016.

Inna was born in Ivatsevichi, Belarus. She came to the US and settled in western Massachusetts with her family. Inna is very active in sports and played volleyball and ran track in high school. She continued to pursue her passion for volleyball at Western New England University in Springfield and during that time tore her ACL as a sophomore. Her ACL injury and recovery immersed her in sports medicine and allowed her to become familiar with the field of orthopedics. Inna was very inspired by her own surgery and the recovery process and decided to pursue a degree in physician assistant studies. Inna sees patients in clinic, performs first assistant duties in the operating room and rounds on our patients. Inna still plays volleyball every week and competes locally and nationally. Inna is also very involved in her home church in West Springfield with the young adult ministry and worship team playing the keyboard and singing. She enjoys being outdoors and exploring new places.
