Your Care Team
Throughout your treatment, you will work with different types of health care professionals, including physician assistants, orthopedic surgeons, physical therapists and more.
For patients not clearly identified for surgery and those with specific diagnoses, one of our skilled Physician Assistants (PA) will meet with you at your the first office visit. Physician Assistants are trained to gather the patient’s history and order tests that will help the surgeon determine the course of treatment. PAs work closely with the orthopedic surgeon throughout treatment. The PA is in the operating room to assist with surgery and may see the patient in his or her pre- and post-operative appointment. Following surgery, patients are referred to a physical therapist who will teach specialized exercised to help regain flexibility, range of motion and strength.

As part of your ongoing care, we encourage you to participate in a series of online assessments during various stages of your surgical journey: pre-operatively, three months after your surgery and then on an annual basis. We have partnered with CODE TECHNOLOGY to collect data from Patient Reported Outcome surveys to help us ensure that our patients receive the highest quality of care. Thank you in advance for your participation.
