About Synergy Orthopedic Specialists

Synergy Orthopedic Specialists Medical Group was founded to bring individual surgeons together to provide patients the highest standards of excellence in orthopaedic care.

As San Diego’s choice for orthopaedic care, we specialize in all aspects including sports-related injuries and the diagnosis and treatment of shoulder, elbow, knee, hand and foot disorders, orthopaedic trauma, arthritis, spine, congenital disorders and work-related injuries.

In addition to our Board Certified and Fellowship-Trained surgeons, Synergy Orthopedic Specialists Medical Group features its own Physical Therapy and MRI centers.

Our physical therapy specialists understand our surgeries and protocols for rehabilitation through close communication with us. This leads to better patient outcomes

Working with our in-house radiologists on a day-to-day basis allows for more detailed inclusion of valuable information in interpretations, which facilitates more patient specific information and accurate diagnoses.
