Meet Nikki!!!

One of the most exciting events which has occurred at The Los Angeles Orthopaedic Institute is our incorporation of physician assistants in our practice.  Physician assistants (PA) are trained to evaluate patients, perform procedures in the office and the emergency room, assist in surgery and make the hospital rounds to treat our surgical patients.  They are a vital link between the surgeons at LAOI and our patients and they are an indispensible part of our team.

Coury Clemens was one of our first PA’s and he has been with LAOI for nearly three years.  We have recently recruited Nikki Sisto to join our group a few months ago. She graduated from Boston University and completed a 2 1/2 year Physician Assistance program at Pace University in New York City.   She grew up in the San Fernando Valley and we were able to convince her to return home. She has been an amazing asset to our office and she has exceeded all of our expectations!!  She is an excellent assistant in the operating room but her true strengths are her breadth of medical knowledge and her compassion for the patients.  She listens to them and makes every attempt to smooth their recovery following a fracture or major recontructive surgery.

The best part is that her prescence has engergized me and has given me more enthusiasm than ever to teach and continue to deliver the best care to all our patients. Nikki, as you may have guessed, is my daughter and I could not be prouder of her or more excited to come to work each day with her. Her joining our team has been a “dream come true” for me and all of our patients will benefit from working with her as well.

All of our patients are MORE THAN EVER in the best hands at The Los Angeles Orthopaedic Institute!

Keep Moving!

Dr. Sisto

Happy New Year

Wishing all of our patients a happy & healthy New Year!
