Assisting Our Specialty Providers with Top-Notch Care

At Fox Valley Surgical Specialists (FVSS), we have a team of Advance Practice Clinicians (APCs) who assist our providers throughout the care process and during surgery. All of our APCs have received master’s degrees in nursing or physician assistant studies.
