Kevin Wright has over 15 years of experience as an orthopedic PA has been working with Dr. Paul since 2013. He has a keen interest in minimally invasive techniques and has helped proctor other mid levels and surgeons on new approaches. His practice emphasizes patient education and mutual agreement and understanding of the treatment plan. Although Kevin uses your images as a guide towards understanding the diagnosis, the emphasis is on meeting individual needs, minimizing pain while maximizing quality of life. As we say he “treats people, not images”. Kevin is very patient and makes very attempt to answer all your questions at each visit. His team feels spending that extra time in the office, and teaching, goes a long way in the patient’s care. He continually works on building relationships with patients. He especially enjoys the final post surgical visit, when people get to look back and see how much progress people have made. After meeting Kevin you will realize he loves his job, and loves working on Dr. Paul’s team. Kevin is part of Edward Hospital Spine Steering committee with an emphasis on educating floor and OR staff. Kevin constantly collaborates with nurses and OR staff in an effort to improve patient outcomes and experiences.
