Tricia Gore

Physician Assistant

Tricia is a dedicated spine-specialized Physician Assistant at VSI, and a local native proudly serving her hometown community. Tricia’s journey into orthopedic medicine was ignited by her personal experience as a competitive dancer, overcoming a spine stress fracture at the age of 15.
Having successfully rehabilitated from her injury, Tricia’s fascination with the intricate anatomy of the spine deepened, propelling her into the field she’s passionate about today. Collaborating seamlessly with our team of spine surgeons, Tricia plays a pivotal role in ensuring a comprehensive and patient-centric experience at VSI.

Beyond caring for patients, Tricia leads an active lifestyle, whether it’s lifting weights, practicing yoga, or getting outdoors for a run or walk. With three half marathons and a full marathon under her belt, she understands the importance of spinal health in maintaining an active life.

Tricia’s commitment extends beyond clinical expertise; she is genuinely passionate about partnering with patients to optimize their spine and overall health. Her journey from a competitive dancer to a spine-specialized healthcare professional uniquely positions her to relate to patients and guide them on their path to a healthy, active lifestyle.
