Atlantic Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine Welcomes New Physician Assistant

April 10, 2018 – Portsmouth, NH – Atlantic Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine is pleased to announce the addition of a new Physician Assistant to their team of Board-Certified physicians, Ryan LaBelle, PA-C.

LaBelle will specialize in sports medicine and the non-surgical treatment and prevention of sports injuries at Atlantic Orthopaedics, including: broken bones, sprains, tendonitis, torn ligaments and tendons, overuse injuries, exercise modification and patient education. An NCCPA Board-Certified Physician and member of the American Academy of Physician Assistants, LaBelle received training from Endicott College, where he earned a BS in Athletic Training, and the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences. The NCCPA, or National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants, is the only certifying organization for physician assistants in the United States.

“I believe the optimum patient care is when the information we have to offer as clinicians meets the autonomy of the patient,” LaBelle said. “I enjoy providing my education and knowledge as a professional, while being able to make collaborative decisions with patients in working towards positive results.”

In his spare time, LaBelle enjoys all sports and outdoor activities, especially golf, soccer and traveling.
