Position: Joint Physical Therapist

Describe some of your job duties: I work closely with patients who will be having a total joint replacement. I provide pre-op education and post-op physical therapy — both in the Ambulatory Surgery Center and in the outpatient clinic. These one-on-one interactions provide patients with a very individualized and guided Joint Journey experience.

Favorite thing about working at SPO: The very upbeat and positive work environment where everyone is so friendly and helpful!

What is your greatest accomplishment at work? Having a patient say they had a great experience working with me, are happy with their outcome, and have been able to return to doing the things they love!
