About Us

Our mission is the restoration of motion—to continually develop and maintain comprehensive programs in all areas of orthopedics, addressing each aspect of patient care from initial consultation, diagnosis, and treatment through recovery.

Located in San Diego’s North County, Orthopaedic Specialists of North County (OSNC) is committed to helping people lead active lives, whether it’s through treating an accident, sport, work-related injury,  total joint replacement, or relieving chronic or acute pain.

Our teams place their focus on quality of care—investing in the best technology and staff training necessary to deliver services efficiently to achieve the desired results for each patient. Our physicians have staff privileges at several hospitals and surgery centers, and we see more than 2,500 patients annually.

By integrating diagnostic, medical, rehabilitation, surgical and non-surgical techniques, we provide the highest quality of orthopaedic medicine in a hands-on, high-tech environment.

Yet with all our state-of-the-art training and technology, we never lose sight of the fact that one of the most powerful healing forces in medicine is personal patient care.

We appreciate that you have selected us for your orthopaedic health care needs.
