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.
