Karen Davidson, NP-C
Karen became a Nurse Practitioner 12 years ago and has been working with the team at Mississippi Sports Medicine for 2 1/2 years. Her decision to join Mississippi Sports Medicine came from recommendations that it is a great place to work for many reasons and she thought orthopaedics and joint replacement surgery would be a fun and rewarding next step as a nurse practitioner. She enjoys helping patients through the surgical process as they go from being miserable with pain to pain free.
"I mainly assist with all the elements of surgery-including pre-op planning, prescriptions, admission to discharge orders and documentation, first assisting in the OR, surgery billing, hospital rounds and care. I also do coordination of care with others such as physical therapy, nursing care, case management, rehab facilities, pharmacies, and consulting physicians," states Karen Davidson.
When she's not at work, you can find Karen at home doing the usual mom household activities or spending time with her husband, 2 sons, 3 dogs, and ducks.
