Our PA role was founded on the concept of team practice. We believe that the physician-PA team relationship is fundamental to enhancing the delivery of high-quality orthopedic healthcare. Our Physicians Assistant is a vital part of our surgical and orthopedic team. Physicians Assistants are certified by completing a national exam and fulfilling state requirements with continued education to become board licensed medical professionals that are able to diagnose, treat, and manage most medical conditions either independently or as part of a health care team.
