San Diego Sports Medicine and Orthopedic Center is joining Synergy Orthopedic Specialists in San Diego to form a group with more than 25 physicians.
SDSM's five physicians and physician assistant began practicing under Synergy Orthopedic Specialists on March 1, according to a March 3 news release. Talks of the partnership began in 2020, and the two now make up the largest independent orthopedic group in San Diego.
"We believe this merger will allow physicians to remain independent as they navigate the changes in healthcare," Tal David, MD, Synergy Orthopedic Specialists' president, said in the release. "Patients will have greater access to what we believe is the region's foremost integrated orthopedic private practice with a reputation for quality and patient-centered care."
Synergy Orthopedic Specialists has 15 locations and plans to expand in the future.
