Meet Adam
Adam is a certified physician assistant with more than 12 years of experience in orthopedics, focusing specifically on joint replacement and sports medicine. He works closely with Drs. Johnson and Dr. Erickson Adams and may be a point of contact during office visits and for follow-up care.

“My goal is to make sure that patients get continuity of care – from their initial office visit through their treatment and recovery,” Adam said. “Over the last 12-plus years, I have had the opportunity to work with patients with just about every orthopedic-related issue there is. Through this experience, I’ve gained a keen understanding and appreciation of what patients need to get back to a better quality of life.”

Before joining The Bone & Joint Center, Adam most recently served as the clinical program coordinator for the renowned Steadman Clinic in Vail, CO, where he managed a diverse and challenging professional athlete-based clinical program.

“My time at the Steadman Clinic taught me about the need to respond to the unique demands and expectations of active people,” Adam said. “When you’re used to going, going, going and then all of a sudden you can’t, that can be really tough. As a physician assistant, I have learned to be ready to answer questions and offer support to help active people through this rough time.”
