Josie Hyams is an avid athlete who participates in marathons and triathlons, Josie’s passion for sports led to her interest in sports medicine. She actively participates in local running groups, which normally shy away from orthopedists, and shows them that we are able to heal with minimally invasive procedures.
“I always wanted to work with athletes. Having suffered a sports-related injury, I understand how important it is to get the appropriate care,” Ms. Hyams says.
As an athlete and medical professional, she embraces the Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Center’s multi-disciplinary approach that mandates exploring non-invasive treatments before progressing to more invasive measures.
“Working with our surgeons has been a highlight of my career. They are not only researchers but they are also leaders in healing the foot and ankle. We are able to improve the mobility of our athletic and nonathletic patients, allowing them to have an active lifestyle that they once may have thought was impossible,” Ms. Hyams says.
She holds a B.S. in Human Nutrition, Food, and Exercise from Virginia Polytechnic Institute (“Virginia Tech”) in Blacksburg, Virginia and a M.S. in Physician Assistant Studies from Shenandoah University in Winchester, Virginia.
