Where does it hurt?

Within Synergy Orthopedic Specialists Medical Group, we have a number of board-certified orthopaedic surgeons/physicians that are fellowship trained subspecialists in care of the foot and ankle.  Our physicians look forward to providing you with the care you need to get you back to your baseline (or much improved) ambulatory ability and activities that you enjoy as soon as possible.

Orthopedic surgeons who specialize in foot and ankle care employ medical, physical and surgical methods to restore function lost as a result of injury and disease to the foot and ankle. They coordinate their treatment methods with a foot care team that includes other physicians, nurses, physical therapists, physician assistants, and pedorthists. The orthopaedist’s areas of expertise include the knowledge and techniques necessary to treat:

  • Injuries such as fractures, dislocations,
    sprains, torn ligaments and amputations
  • Joint destruction requiring joint replacement
  • Sports injuries
  • Arthritis
  • Loss of joint and muscle function caused by disease or injury
  • Bunions, hammertoes and flatfeet
  • Nerve disorders such as neuroma and tarsal tunnel syndrome
  • Congenital deformities such as clubfoot

 

Dear Patients:

As most of you are aware, over the last several days and weeks we have been learning about the coronavirus (COVID-19) and how it is impacting our world.  At Synergy Orthopedic Specialists, we have one goal that we strive for, and that is to keep you, our patients, and our employees safe.  This has been the topic of our planning and conversations and we have implemented several measures to ensure that we do everything possible to reduce the threat of this disease.

Our offices are regularly cleaned and sanitized, but we are now ramping up those procedures to include wiping down counters and other surfaces more frequently.  Additionally, we have hand sanitizer available, and washrooms for thorough hand washing.  We are closely following the Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC) guidelines and recommendations to help prevent the spread of the virus.

Our employees have been instructed to frequently use antiseptic hand cleaner as well as handwashing per the CDC instructions.  We also encourage our patients to do the same. If our employees feel sick or begin running a temperature, they have been instructed to stay home.  Similarly, we request that patients who are not feeling well, reschedule their appointments and not come to our clinics while they are ill. 

If our employees become ill, our offices may be functioning with less that optimal staffing; therefore, we request your patience if there are longer than average wait times or other delays.  Any location that may have any direct exposure, will be quarantined for cleaning.

We will continue to closely monitor the situation and do all that we can to protect you and our employees.  For more information and guidelines on the Covid-19, please visit:  https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html

Thank you
