Elizabeth (“Beth”) Bardowski is the nurse practitioner at Nashville Hip Institute at TOA. She is board certified with the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) as an acute care nurse practitioner. Beth completed her Bachelor of Science in Nursing at Middle Tennessee State University in 2004 and then earned her Master of Science degree at Vanderbilt University in 2008. Prior to coming to Nashville Hip Institute at TOA in 2010, Beth worked as a nurse on the trauma unit and then as a nurse practitioner for the orthopaedic trauma service at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

Beth implemented the use of ultrasound at Nashville Hip Institute at TOA and has performed over 14,000 ultrasound guided procedures. Beth’s mastery of ultrasonography is chronicled in the scientific paper published in the Arthroscopy Journal (Ultrasound-Guided Hip Injections: A Comparative Study With Fluoroscopy-Guided Injections) that illustrates the merits of the technique she has perfected. She also lectures and demonstrates these techniques around the country. Beth was a co-author of the perioperative care chapter in the third edition of the textbook, Operative Hip Arthroscopy. She has also co-authored numerous other research articles that have been published in peer reviewed journals such as Arthroscopy, Journal of Hip Preservation Surgery, and The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery.
