The Role of Nonphysician Providers in the Delivery of High-Value Spine Care

Spineline, the clinical and news magazine for spine care professionals, published an article in their July 2013 volume called “The Role of Nonphysician Providers in the Delivery of High-Value Spine Care,” which highlights the value that Nurse Practitioners, Physicians’ Assistants, and others add to the field of spine care. Now, as the Affordable Care Act aims to bring health care to 32 million more Americans, the role of nonphysician providers is expected to explode as they improve the quality, access, and value of orthopedic clinics across the country.

At Southwest Spine and Sports, we are lucky enough to have two Physicians’ Assistants on staff: Gretchen Post and Ami Mikhail. Our Physician’s Assistants play an important role in our team-based approach to patient care, and with nearly 15 years of combined experience, they complete our team and add to the family.

Come experience the value a full team of spine care specialists can add to your life. If you’re in pain, don’t wait—call Southwest Spine & Sports for an evaluation today.
