Dr. Thomas is known for pioneering arthroscopic surgery in San Diego, according to a July 30 news release. Pascual Dutton, MD, and Scot Youngblood, MD, who are borth orthopedic surgeons also joined Synergy.
Dr. Dutton is a sports medicine surgeon. Dr. Youngblood will lead Synergy Orthopedic Specialists' foot and ankle program.
