Derek N. Morrow, PA-C
Certified Physician Assistant
Derek joined Advanced Bone & Joint in 2018 as a physician assistant. He primarily works for Advanced Bone & Joint’s Ortho Urgent Care clinic, which provides immediate attention for acute orthopedic injuries.
Derek's first exposure to the world of orthopedics occurred when he suffered a knee injury during a high school football game that required surgical intervention. Following a successful surgery and rehabilitation, he was amazed at the process that allowed his return to sports. Like many of the medical providers who helped him through that rough time, he chose to pursue a career in orthopedics.
Derek began his post-graduate training at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale and completed his clinical training in St. Louis, Missouri. Derek graduated with a master of science in physician assistant studies. Following graduation, he began practicing in the field of orthopedic spine surgery in Peoria, Illinois. He then returned to St. Louis in 2016, continuing a career in the art of neurosurgery in which he still practices.
Derek loves to stay active and encourages his patients to do the same. His passion for medicine and orthopedics is reflected in all his patient encounters. He enjoys working with patients and seeing them come full circle from their initial injuries.
