Premier Orthopaedic Associates is proud to announce a new partnership with American Orthopedic Partners. AOP is a physician-owned, physician-led national orthopedic practice achieving transformational change by offering surgeons an exclusive opportunity to maintain the best of private practice while leveraging the benefits of scale. Partner physicians continue local governance while collaborating on national initiatives and accessing resources to grow their practices. This physician-owned partnership model fuels value creation, clinical innovation, and orthopedic excellence. Jay Bronner, M.D., is CEO and founder of AOP. “With the right structure and with the right culture, physicians with an aligned vision of excellence deliver outstanding clinical value to the patients they serve,” said Bronner. “Premier Orthopaedic Associates is joining forces with orthopedic surgeons from across the country dedicated to clinical excellence and sustainable growth.” With deep roots in NJ and beyond, Premier will serve as the platform for AOP’s growing presence in the tri-state region.

Premier Orthopaedic Associates of Southern New Jersey was founded in 1998 by President and CEO Thomas A. Dwyer, M.D., servicing patients across ten locations spanning five counties in South Jersey. Premier is a full-service orthopedic practice and its 33 providers, including physicians, PAs, physical and occupational therapists, care for patients of all ages and activity levels. “Premier Orthopaedic Associates is driven by two fundamental goals. The first is to deliver academic quality specialized orthopedic care. The second is to provide all orthopedic care in a convenient one-stop-shop model,” said Dwyer. “AOP offers the right partnership model for Premier Orthopaedic Associates and the physician leadership, with its focus on local autonomy, is a clear differentiator. With AOP’s partnership and support, Premier will continue to work untiringly to serve the communities in which we live, work and play. We look forward to continuing to nurture our valued local relationships, including our long-standing partnership with Inspira Health.”
