Meet Your Orthopedic Physician Assistant

Paula J. Lucas, MPAS, PA-C

“I enjoy helping others and I have always been interested in medicine and science. In orthopedics, it’s awesome to see a patient with a worn-out arthritic knee or hip get back their range of motion and their life while eliminating their pain. I am from this area, which helps me relate to our patients and their lives. It brings comfort to my patients knowing that I am a local and that I am a good listener and friendly and understanding. My goal is to relieve my patients’ pain and help them restore their quality of life.”
