Dean Showalter, PA
Dean is a Physician Assistant to Dr. Michael Archibeck, who specializes in total knee and hip replacements and adult reconstruction at NMOA’s Center for Joint Replacement Surgery. Dean has been practicing with Dr Archibeck since 2001. He describes his role as a “physician extender”, and believes the term underscores how he works with Dr Archibeck. The two work together in every aspect of the practice including clinical evaluations, surgery, hospital care and postoperative follow up.
Dean finds great professional rewards in seeing patients who were once in pain, now happy as a result of their successful surgery. Outside of the clinic, Dean enjoys traveling and sharing his experiences with patients.
