Brittany Bellows, PA-C
PHYSICIAN ASSISTANT ORTHOPEDICS
Brittany Bellows is a Certified Physician Assistant (PA-C) at Coastal Ortho Advanced Orthopedics. As a PA-C, she works under the supervision of the orthopedic doctors in the practice to treat patients for a wide variety of orthopedic conditions. She creates non-surgical treatment plans for most patients and assists during surgeries whenever necessary.
Brittany has been practicing as a PA-C since 2007, when she received her Physician Assistant Certification. She has earned two Master's degrees, one in physician assistant studies and the other in public health. Her Bachelor of Science degree is in cognitive neuroscience. Throughout her studies, Brittany was drawn to the medical field because, she's passionate about solving problems. Being able to help people overcome health challenges has been a rewarding career path for her, and she enjoys taking the time to answer patients' questions and put their minds at ease.
When she's not treating patients, Brittany stays very active. She loves running, hiking, volleyball, and yoga. Although she grew up in the South Bay and still lives here, her family is now in Napa Valley. She visits them frequently and enjoys the beauty and diversity of the wine country, but the South Bay is home.
My goal is to always be an integral part of the health care team here. I provide a level of care that the practice built its reputation on—leading-edge knowledge, deep compassion, and commitment to improving lives.
