Peninsula Orthopaedic Associates continues to strategically expand its services into the rapidly growing communities within Sussex County.

Dr. Wilson Choy, founder of Premier Orthopaedic Bone & Joint Care, an orthopaedic practice in Lewes, has committed to the Peninsula Orthopaedic Associates team, beginning Monday, April 1. Dr. Paul Harriott, a sports medicine fellowship-trained orthopaedic surgeon, and three physician assistants (Jennifer Hazzard, Amanda Moore and Henry Mensack) and the entire PBNJ team will also be joining POA.

With the inclusion of Choy and his team that hold the same high-quality standards and approach to providing excellent patient care, POA will expand its service footprint in Lewes and Milford. Through these new office locations, POA will also offer additional sub-specialty care, encompassing hand and wrist, total joint sports medicine, and spine orthopedic care. Choy and Harriott will continue to provide surgical services within Beebe Healthcare facilities.

Dr. Pasquale Petrera, POA president, said, “The union of POA and Premier Orthopaedic Bone & Joint will advance our mission of delivering specialized, compassionate and outstanding orthopaedic care to the communities across the Delmarva Peninsula. Dr. Choy, Dr. Harriott and their team possess a long-standing tradition of providing top-tier orthopaedic care in the Sussex community, and we are privileged to incorporate their expertise, dedication and skill set into POA. We are enthusiastic about this opportunity to welcome PBNJ as part of the POA team. Together, we will evolve to support the expanding musculoskeletal care our growing communities have come to expect and deserve.”

Choy said, “The merger with Peninsula Orthopaedic Associates brings resources, technology, services and surgical advances in delivering quality patient care into this ever-growing community. We are excited about the opportunities this relationship brings to southern Delaware. We will be better positioned to meet the demands and expectations that confront the changing future of healthcare.”
