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.

  • 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.
