About Our Physician Assistants

Physician assistants at UBMD Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine are a vital part of our medical care team and work directly with our doctors to provide comprehensive orthopaedic care for our patients.

As part of your overall care, physician assistants may work directly with you and your physician to perform testing, conduct initial examinations, and even treat minor injuries and concerns. Physician assistants are licensed medical professionals, and perform a broad range of duties in office settings, hospitals and urgent care environments.

Among their many duties, physician assistants may:

  • Interpret X-ray and lab test results
  • Determine a course of treatment
  • Administer medication and injections
  • Write prescriptions
  • Assist in surgery
  • Apply and change bandages/casts

Physician assistants are a crucial part of providing comprehensive care. Whether a broken bone, a sprained joint or any other kind of injury or issue, physician assistants play a critical role in your orthopaedic and musculoskeletal care.
