Division Spotlight: Prince William Orthopaedics, Hand Surgery, & Sports Medicine Center
In 1999, with an entrepreneurial spirit as the driving force, The Centers Treasurer, Dr. Subir Jossan, founded his own private practice in Manassas, Virginia. Dr Jossan is a Hand and Upper Extremity Specialist. Since day one, he has valued the flexibility, strong work-life balance and intimate patient relationships that come with private practice employment, and turned down several appealing academic and hospital positions to grow the practice. After initial space sharing arrangements, and bringing on associates, Dr. Jossan designed and built the current office location.
A Sports Medicine Specialist, Dr. Bradford Knight then brought expertise in arthroscopic surgery and shoulder and knee surgery to the practice. He previously served as the assistant team physician for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the University of Miami and Florida International University. Shortly thereafter, Dr. Brion Gardner, a veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom joined the practice. He cared for wounded Marines and Navy Sailors injured in Iraq and Afghanistan, and brought to the practice expertise in arthroscopic surgery of the ankle, knee, shoulder and hip, as well as major joint replacement surgery. Just last year, Dr. Zachary Weidner joined the practice after receiving a fellowship in adult reconstructive surgery at the Anderson Orthopaedic Clinic in Alexandria. His focus is on primary and revision knee and hip replacements. The practice also brought on a PA five years ago to meet patient demand.
After joining the Centers for Advanced Orthopaedics, the practice made the decision to expand into a second location in Mclean, Virginia in conjunction with the Woodbridge division. The current medical facility in Manassas is equipped with full service physical and occupational therapy, with plans to add these services to the new office location as well.
The physicians at Prince William Orthopaedics pride themselves in keeping up with medical innovations to offer their patients the best care possible. In addition to minimally invasive surgeries, anterior approaches and robotic-assisted joint replacements, the group continues to implement new technologies to improve their care.
Prince William Orthopaedics prioritizes more than high quality clinical care, realizing the totality of the patient experience is just as important. Through Binary Fountain, The Centers for Advanced Orthopaedics’ patient survey provider, Prince William Orthopaedics works each and every day to evaluate and improve the patient experience. Equally important, the physicians are deeply involved in the community, working with local sports teams and offering lectures within the community. Even before joining The Centers, the practice worked hard to accept as many insurance providers as possible, including military insurance and Medicare.
As a member of The Centers’ Leadership Team, Dr. Jossan is, of course, a huge supporter of the large group business model. In the past the practice explored merging with another small local orthopaedic group. Realizing the value of collaboration on a much larger scale, the practice knew The Centers would provide incredible opportunities to collaborate with colleagues, to work with payers, invest in research/data analysis, and to save on overhead costs. Most important however, the value of staying in a private practice model, with physicians making decisions that are best for their patients was the reason that the division decided to join the Centers for Advanced Orthopaedics. Each of the physicians at Prince William Orthopaedics continue to maintain a healthy work life balance , and look forward to the opportunities that lie ahead in the organization.
