Meghan Hamilton, PA-C, is a certified physician assistant with The Christ Hospital Physicians – Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine who provides care to patients at the The Christ Hospital Joint & Spine Center, including patients of the After-Hours Orthopedic Clinic at that location.
She brings significant experience as a physician assistant specializing in orthopedic care. She was inspired to take her career in that direction after falling and breaking her arm as a child, and having her arm fully heal after being in a cast for several weeks. “I had such a great experience with the orthopedic physician and medical staff caring for me in my time of need,” she says. “This is one of the reasons I became interested in medicine and certainly sparked my interest in orthopedics as a young person.”
The foundation of Meghan’s care philosophy is taking the time to sit with her patients and listen to them. “When I stop and listen, and in turn provide my patients with a thorough explanation of treatment, that makes for a positive interaction and lets them know they are well-heard and cared for,” she says. She advocates for her patients to take care of their bodies so that it will take care of them. “My biggest piece of advice is to stay active in order to keep your muscles, bones, and joints healthy and strong,” she says.
Meghan holds a Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences from the University of Cincinnati, and a Master of Physician Assistant Studies from Kettering College. She received her certification from the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants.
In her free time, Meghan loves to spend time with her husband and children. She enjoys being outdoors, running, and volunteering at her children’s school.
