The Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Institute
Jennifer G. Groves, PA-C, MPAS – Biography
With twenty-two years of extensive and diverse medical experience, I am Jennifer Groves, a dedicated Physician Assistant based in the Mansfield office of OSMI. My professional journey has taken me through various fields within the medical realm, allowing me to hone my skills and expertise to deliver compassionate and superior healthcare. Outside of the workplace, I am a proud military spouse and mother to three fantastic teenagers and one rescue dog. Our family has lived in six states and moved to Fort Worth in 2022. When I am not on the sidelines cheering for my kids, I love to travel, fly-fish, water/snow ski, cook, work in my garden, and spend time with friends and family.
Currently, I am providing walk-in orthopedic services at Orthopedic Sports Medicine Institute in Mansfield, Texas. I am supported by several orthopedic surgeons specializing in sports medicine, general orthopedics, and joint replacement. Our clinic is capable of providing on-site x-rays, in addition to splinting/casting, and durable medical equipment. We strive to make every patient experience a positive one!
Previously, I have most extensively worked as a surgical first assist alongside orthopedic surgeons, specializing in joint replacements, trauma surgery, and sports medicine. My responsibilities outside of the operating room included inpatient care, such as hospital consults, ER consults, hospital rounds, and inpatient care, as well as outpatient clinic duties, which encompassed patient evaluation, treatment for various orthopedic complaints, prescription of pharmaceutical and therapeutic modalities, and performing musculoskeletal/intra-articular injections, splinting, and casting. I also served remotely providing telemedicine consultations for patients in need of medication and interventional management, supporting an interventional pain management specialist and spine surgeon. My experience extends to other roles in occupational medicine, urgent care, family practice, and more, where I’ve consistently aimed to provide comprehensive and cost-effective healthcare.
I’ve also dedicated my time to teaching and curriculum development. As an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Physician Assistant Studies at George Washington University, I was responsible for the Orthopedic and Rheumatology Section, where I developed curriculum, lecture materials, and coordinated guest lecturers. Additionally, I have served as a guest lecturer at the same institution, providing valuable instruction on musculoskeletal anatomy, pathophysiology, and physical examination techniques to graduate-level Physician Assistant students. Further, I have been a guest speaker at physician assistant conferences across the nation.
