Advanced Practice Providers (APPs) deliver care within the Department of Surgery to patients on all levels of the care continuum. All APPs have completed a masters or a doctoral program in addition to hours of additional clinical training, allowing APPs to collaborate with your surgeon to evaluate and diagnose medical issues as well as develop and manage treatment plans including prescribing medications, ordering various studies, and performing procedures. APPs also provide continuity of care to the surgical team by educating patients and families as well as residents and students on the service specific protocols, treatment guidelines and overall disease management. APPs work with the interdisciplinary care team to coordinate smooth transitions in care and work to provide patient and family centered care in all surgical settings.
