About Adriane Bagley, PA-C
Adriane Bagley is a certified physician assistant (PA-C) on the hand and upper extremity orthopedic team. Through clinical examination, along with imaging studies such as x-rays, she formulates treatment plans that best suits each patient's needs. She uses a multi-modal approach to treat patients' pain including therapy, medications, and injections. She has operative experience as well and can discuss surgical options when appropriate.
Adriane treats upper extremity pathology including trigger fingers, carpal tunnel syndrome, hand arthritis, elbow tendonitis, rotator cuff injuries, labral tears of the shoulder, biceps tendonitis, shoulder arthritis, and fractures of the hand, wrist, forearm, and humerus.
She was drawn to orthopedics after suffering two anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears herself from volleyball and hip-hop dance injuries. She has first-hand experience rehabilitating from an injury, allowing her not only to empathize with patients, but also to celebrate their gains as they recover.
Prior to joining UC San Diego Health, Adriane spent five years with the orthopedic team at Stanford Health Care, working in general orthopedics, treating injuries head to toe, and assisting in the operating room. Before that she was part of the hand and plastic surgery team at Bellevue Hospital, New York University School of Medicine.
Adriane completed her master's degree at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York and her undergraduate studies at University of Pennsylvania.
In her free time, she enjoys dancing, even if just in her kitchen with her family, exploring the restaurant scene of San Diego, and going for hikes with her husband and daughter.
