More about Megan

Megan was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois. While attending Marquette University, she also worked as a teacher’s aide in the human gross anatomy course. Her interest in healthcare was enhanced by two medical mission trips to Honduras where she was part of a group of students and physicians who provided medical care to the impoverished Honduran population.

Upon graduating and becoming a certified physician assistant, her first job was at Midwest Orthopedics at Rush where she worked with a physician who specialized in minimally invasive spinal surgery.

Megan and her husband Steve moved from Chicago to Colorado Springs in the spring of 2012. They both love the outdoors and have been taking full advantage of all Colorado has to offer including fishing, hiking, and mountain biking.

Philosophy of Care

“I want to give my patients an informed and honest clinical experience. This involves educating them regarding the diagnosis (which may not always be immediately clear) and presenting them with a ‘menu’ of treatment options based on the best and most current information we have from clinical and science research. That is the only way to allow patients to make an informed decision.

While most maladies can improve with non-operative management, some issues are simply surgical problems. For example, in scenarios such as tendon lacerations, I believe it is a disservice to pursue a prolonged course of non-surgical treatment. As surgeons, it's our responsibility to educate patients and offer our insight to arrive at the best option.”

Patient Testimonials

“I saw Dr. Watson for a wrist injury. He was able to diagnose me very quickly and went through all the treatment options with me. He was very informative and let me know exactly what to expect.  During my first follow up post-surgery I was placed in a hard cast. During that time, the cast tech was very caring and did a great job! The office staff worked very well together and provided great patient care.” – Bret Richter
