Riverwood introduces new orthopaedic physician assistant

Erin Mason, PA-C

Riverwood Healthcare Center is pleased to welcome Erin Mason, Physician Assistant to its orthopaedic team in Aitkin.

Erin specializes in orthopaedics and sees patients in Riverwood’s specialty clinic in Aitkin, Tuesday through Friday, along with Nurse Practitioner Josh Jacobson, who works Monday through Thursday. Both providers offer same day orthopaedic care for patients with bone, muscle or joint issues. They also see patients for pre- and post-surgical care.

Both Mason and Jacobson work closely to coordinate patient care with three orthopaedic surgeons–Dr. Erik Severson, Dr. Jeffrey Klassen and Dr. Susan Moen—all with extensive experience and advanced fellowship training in orthopaedic surgery.

Mason brings nine years of experience working in orthopaedics, plus six years in emergency medicine, with the Mayo Clinic. She has specialized in orthopaedic emergencies and orthopaedic infectious diseases.

“Erin is a really nice addition to our growing orthopaedics department. Her well-rounded experience and compassion for helping her patients live their best quality of life possible  is a great fit for Riverwood”, states Cindi Baker, Chief Operating Officer.

Erin Mason and her husband, Rob, have two sons. Away from her job, she enjoys biking, hiking, nature walks and do-it-yourself home improvement projects.
