Kaylie Cronin, PA-C
Certified Physician Assistant
Kaylie Cronin is a board-certified Physician Assistant who works primarily with Dr. Banos in both the office and operating room. Kaylie graduated from the Tufts University School of Medicine Physician Assistant Program with a Master of Medical Science degree. While in PA school, she was trained in orthopedics and sports medicine at the VA Boston Healthcare System and St. Elizabeth's Medical Center. Prior to PA school, she received her bachelor’s degree in Nutritional Sciences from Cornell University, where she was captain of the Division I gymnastics team.
Growing up as a competitive athlete, Kaylie had her fair share of injuries, which ignited her passion for orthopedics and sports medicine. Understanding from personal experience the pain and frustration caused by an injury, she finds it extremely rewarding to help patients return to an active lifestyle. She enjoys working with all ages, from young athletes eager to return to play, to older adults looking to enjoy a life with increased mobility and decreased pain.
In the office, Kaylie sees new and follow up patients, treating both acute injuries as well managing chronic conditions. She performs joint injections and aspirations with ultrasound guidance as indicated. For patients pursuing surgical treatment with Dr. Banos, Kaylie serves as a physician-extender throughout the surgical process. She is the first assistant in the operating room for Dr. Banos' surgeries, and has first-hand experience of each patient's unique case. She conducts both preoperative and postoperative office visits for surgical patients. Kaylie is happy to answer any clinical questions regarding pre-operative clearance and testing, details about surgery, and the post-operative recovery and rehabilitation process. Along with Dr. Banos and the rest of the team, she aims to make every patient’s experience as comfortable and stress-free as possible.
