The Physician Assistant is an extension of our Orthopaedic Surgeons, and works closely with them in our practice, serving an important role in our holistic patient care. Our PAs are responsible for providing routine patient care in a clinical setting and aiding our physicians ensuring that our patient care is of the highest effectiveness as quality.
