Crovetti Orthopaedics Welcomes Board Certified Jennifer D'Andrea, APRN to Medical Team
Jennifer D'Andrea's extensive experience began after earning her Bachelors of Science in Nursing from the University of the Virgin Islands, and her Masters of Science at Ball State University, Indiana. Starting out in emergency room and urgent care settings in Las Vegas and Seattle, she focused her talents early on towards Regenerative and Functional Medicine. Her intensive training in this area continued with Advanced Injection Techniques and the use of ultrasound in pain management to address joint, nerve, tendon, ligament, muscle, and orthopaedic conditions - treatments that include the use of hyaluronic acid, steroids, PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy), Iovera, and other non-surgical regenerative therapies.
Ms. D'Andrea prefers to avoid the use of painkilling drugs when possible, and is an avid proponent of intentional listening - an approach that allows her to fully understand and acknowledge the pain issues and concerns of her patients, as well as the overall affect these conditions have on the patient's life and family. Prepared with this in-depth knowledge, D'Andrea then creates a highly personalized program to address their specific health needs, provide the tools they need to get started down the right recovery path, and help them stay on it to achieve their ultimate health goals.
As Ms. D'Andrea explains, "I've found that when patients take an active role in defining the changes they'd like to see in their health, they are far more likely and willing to adhere to their program. My role is to provide the knowledge, tools, and understanding of how best to reach those goals – and when coupled with their own personal motivation – the results are not only a better healthcare outcome for them physically, but an enhanced satisfaction with the journey they've taken to achieve it."
Dr. Crovetti agrees with her philosophy, adding, "Jennifer D'Andrea's role with Crovetti Orthopaedics allows us to even better serve our patients, who are always our first priority. Not only will she be working with our doctors utilizing her experience with injections and pain management treatments, she will also handle our Pre-Operative Clearances in-house – saving patients the need to for additional outside appointments and testing. She will be involved throughout the entire process, providing yet another knowledgeable and helpful continuity of care for our patients."
