Jeff Adkins, PA-C

Physician Assistant

Jeff Adkins is a Certified Physician Assistant with an extensive background in orthopaedic surgery, neuro-spine surgery, pain management and emergency medicine.  He has 20 years of experience in the medical field. 

Jeff’s education began with undergraduate work at Vernon Regional Junior College, Western Oklahoma State College and Texas Tech University.  After obtaining his RN degree, he started his career at University Medical Center in Lubbock, Texas.  He worked as a charge nurse in the emergency room at the Level 1 trauma center for 6 years. 

Furthering his education, he attended The University of North Dakota for his PA training.  After finishing his degree there, he returned to Lubbock and began working as a physician assistant with Dr. Bryan Smitherman at The Center for Orthopaedic Surgery, where he learned the finer points of specialization in joint replacement surgery and sports medicine. 

During his time in Lubbock, he also returned to the trauma center at University Medical Center to practice and help integrate mid-level practitioners into the emergency department.  He spent time as an Advanced Cardiac Life Support instructor while at UMC, teaching physicians and nurses how to respond in the event of cardiac arrest and various other emergent situations.

Jeff decided to expand his skills and scope of knowledge by moving to the metroplex to practice at Spine Team Texas.  While there, he assisted in surgery with renowned neurosurgeon, Dr. Juan Bartolomei.  He also treated patients in the clinic with various spine conditions and pain management issues.

In 2012 he returned to his love of orthopaedic surgery and came to Orthopaedic Specialists of Dallas.  Here, he uses his years of well-rounded medical experience and extensive knowledge of joint replacement surgery and sports medicine to help Drs. Burney and Zavala improve the quality of care given to our patients.

Jeff is certified as a Physician Assistant by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants with an advanced certification in Surgery.  He is also a fellow member of the American Association of Physician Assistants.

In his spare time he enjoys golf, exercising, fishing, scuba diving and anything involving the outdoors.
