At Desert Orthopaedic Center, our physician assistants work closely with our orthopaedic doctors to provide patients with superior care without compromise.

Our physician assistants are highly trained healthcare providers who work under the supervision of our orthopaedic doctors to take medical histories; conduct exams; diagnose and treat musculoskeletal injuries and conditions; order and interpret tests, prescribe medications, and assist our surgeons during surgery. Our physician assistants are trained to recognize when a patient needs the attention of a supervising doctor or additional specialist.
