Physician Assistants

Physician Assistants

Physicians Assistants are healthcare extenders for your Orthopaedic Surgeon. Our practice uses PAs to assist our Orthopaedic Surgeons in surgery. They see our inpatients daily as they do rounds at the hospital. They will chart your progress and speak several times a day with your surgeon about your status. PAs gather information for the physician on ER patients, and assist in the preparation of patients for surgery. You will see your PA before and after your surgery in the OR at our local hospitals. Our Physician Assistants also help our Physicians by holding clinics at several convenient times during the week for urgent needs, injections and presurgical health physicals. Please feel confident that you and your family members can ask your PA any questions and concerns during your time in the hospital.
