I believe that when you are taking care of a child, you are also caring for the entire family.
Ben S. Parr, PA-C



As a physician assistant, I care for children with orthopaedic conditions, with a focus on spinal conditions. I was inspired to pursue my career by the multiple orthopaedic injuries I had during high school. I also had three years of specialized pediatric orthopaedic experience at Shriners Hospitals for Children in Texas.

I believe that when you are taking care of a child, you are also caring for the entire family. At the initial visit, teaching the family about the diagnosis and plan of care for the foreseeable future helps minimize any unexpected surprises.

In my research, I do data entry for MAGnetic Expansion Control (MAGEC) growing rods. This system uses innovative magnetic technology within adjustable growing rods to treat children with severe spinal deformities.

When I’m not at work, I enjoy fishing, hiking and live music.
