About Jason

Physician Assistant Jason Higgs was looking for an orthopedic practice opportunity in a small town setting. He comes to Powder River Orthopedics & Spine (PROS) from the Tri-Cities area in eastern Washington; Kennewick, Pasco and Richland in the Columbia River Basin. Jason completed his Masters of Science in Physician Assistant Studies from Clarkson University in Postdam, NY.

In his prior practice in Washington, Jason worked with hip and knee replacement patients about 80% of the time, and he enjoys the variety of orthopedic patients he sees at PROS. He notes that the patients he sees in Gillette are generally motivated to get back to work and everyday activities faster than those in some of his other practice locations.

Jason and his wife Sarah have four sons, ages 2, 4, 6, and 8, and they all enjoy outdoor activities like hiking and fishing.
