As a physician assistant in orthopedic surgery, Raunaque Oshan, PA-C, is thrilled for the chance to work once more alongside Gundersen Tomah Clinic orthopedic surgeon, Aaron Butler, MD.
Oshan has many years of experience, including at Gundersen, as a PA in the field. Now, he will bring that skill and experience to patients at the Tomah Clinic. This will include seeing new patients with general orthopedic concerns, taking care of fractures and managing arthritic conditions with injection therapy and conservative care, says Oshan.
"If a patient is deemed to be surgical candidates then I will assist Dr. Butler in the operating room and be a part of his team that sees all patients through their successful recovery and pain free life," he says.
Caring for Gundersen patients runs in the family. His wife, Amber Oshan, PA-C, sees Family Medicine patients at Gundersen Sparta Clinic. He says the support of the organization for his wife in her career and the chance to work again alongside Dr. Butler, made this opportunity a perfect fit.
"Dr. Butler is an excellent surgeon. He and I worked together seamlessly for seven years previously. I could not be happier than to be a part of his orthopedic team," Oshan says.
When not caring for patients, Oshan, who is originally from Tanzania, enjoys spending time with family, travel, mountain biking, fly fishing, golf, movies, attending his two "intrepid" children's swimming events and more.
"Having experienced orthopedic conditions myself, I can relate to patients with certain conditions and I think that makes me a better practitioner," he says.
