Thank You, Physician Assistants

Physician assistants work tirelessly on behalf of the physicians they assist as well as the patients whom they treat. Their role in our office is invaluable.

For this reason, Texas Orthopedics salutes our amazing physician assistants and all PA professionals during National PA Week October 6-12.

There are currently more than 100,000 certified PAs across the country, and it is considered one of the fastest-growing professions today (American Academy of Physician Assistants). Physician assistants are highly trained individuals able to prescribe medications and perform many of the same tasks as a regular doctor. They are instrumental in providing more patients high-quality, cost-effective medical care once only available from a doctor.

National Physician Assistants Week has grown from just a single day celebrated historically on October 6 since 1987 to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the first graduating class of PAs from the Duke University PA program. October 6 is also the birthday of the PA field's pioneer and founder, Dr. Eugene A. Stead, Jr.

We are fortunate to have such a great group of PAs supporting our patients.
