Osvaldo Burgos-Iturrino, MSHS, PA-C

After watching his brother go through surgery and rehabilitation for a joint injury as a teen, Osvaldo Burgos-Iturrino was drawn to orthopedic medicine. He served as a medical assistant and orthopedic technician in the United States Navy for more than a decade before earning his certification as a physician assistant in 2017. His areas of special interest and focus include the care of upper and lower-extremity injuries, administration of joint injections, complex casting/splinting/bracing, incorporating orthotics into orthopedic care, and fracture and wound management.

Osvaldo earned his bachelor’s degree in biological sciences at the University of Maryland in
Shady Grove. He holds a Master of Health Studies degree from the University of Maryland-
Baltimore, and his physician assistant certification from Anne Arundel Community College in
Arnold, MD. Being part of the recovery process when a patient is injured and helping them
return to their activities of daily living are what motivate Osvaldo in his work. When not with his
patients, his enjoys continuing his military duties in the Naval Reserve, working out, traveling,
hiking and serving the community as a volunteer.
