On June 1, Samaritan North Lincoln Hospital launched an orthopedic surgery program in partnership with Synergy Surgicalists, a national company focused on expanding general and orthopedic surgery services in rural communities.
Designed to increase access to quality orthopedic care close to home, a team of three orthopedic surgeons will provide care from the Samaritan Coastal Clinic and the hospital, providing patient care around the clock, 7 days a week.
âWe are delighted to once again offer comprehensive orthopedic care at Samaritan North Lincoln Hospital,â said Leley Ogden, CEO of SNLH. âThe benefit of working with a team of orthopedic surgeons, rather than an individual surgeon, is continuous coverage for orthopedic medical appointments, consultations, planned surgeries and emergency surgeries at our hospital. This partnership allows us to bring three talented surgeons, each with different clinical strengths, to our community. “
Daniel Robertson, MD, began caring for general orthopedic patients of all ages on June 1.
Robertson received a medical degree from the University of Texas School of Medicine, Texas Medical Center. He completed a residency in orthopedic surgery at the University of Texas – Houston Medical School, and a fellowship in knee and sports medicine at the University of California, Kaiser Permanente.
Robertson will be joined later this month by Robert Blake, MD, who received a medical degree from Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons. He completed his residency in Orthopedic Surgery at the University of Texas Health Sciences Center and a Fellowship in Hand Surgery and Microsurgery at the Christine M. Kleinert Institute for Hand and Microsurgery.
Later this summer, Darren Herzog, MD, will complete the team of three surgeons. He received a medical degree from the John A.
