Surgical P.A. Program (at MRMC)
14 Prospect Street
Milford, MA 01757
Surgical physician assistants (PAs) are highly skilled clinicians who have received training in all areas of the peri-operative environment, including pre-admission, testing, intra-operative first assisting, PACU care, SICU care, step-down unit, outpatient clinic, office practice and even home care. Our surgical PAs work under the supervision of a physician or surgeon in the operating room at Milford Regional Medical Center.
Surgical PAs are formally trained to provide diagnostic, therapeutic, surgical and preventive care, under the supervision of a physician or surgeon.The PA who specializes in surgery assistance has extensive knowledge of surgical procedures, as well as specific areas of healthcare studies. The primary role of the surgical PA is to assist licensed physicians in patient surgery. However, their involvement from initial patient assessment to post-surgery follow-up care enables surgical PAs to offer excellent continuity of patient care.
