  1. I have 5 years of Ortho surgery experience. I first assist mainly in Spine surgery but can easily cover other cases, ie total joints, ACL, trauma, etc. I'm due for a review of my contract and pay raise. This is a summary of what I currently have: base pay: $115,000 on-call pay: 1 week every 5 weeks, base pay is $750. If I assist in surgery then I get an additional $100 per case, $200 per case if Spine. PTO: 3 weeks, includes 1 week for CME CME: $1000/year Additional benefits like 401K, sick leave, etc My main concern is the base pay. What should an Ortho surgery PA be making after 5 years of experience? I live and work near Los Angeles. Thanks in advance.
