On June 1, Samaritan North Lincoln Hospital launched an orthopedic surgery program in partnership with Synergy Surgicalists, a nationwide 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 out of Samaritan Coastal Clinic and the hospital, ensuring care for patients 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

“We are so pleased to once again offer complete orthopedic care at Samaritan North Lincoln Hospital,” SNLH Chief Executive Officer Lesley Ogden said. “The advantage 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, into our community.”

Daniel Robertson

Daniel Robertson, MD, began June 1, providing care to general orthopedic patients of all ages.

Robertson earned a medical degree from University of Texas Medical School, Texas Medical Center. He completed residency training in orthopedic surgery at University of Texas – Houston Medical School, and a knee and sports medicine research fellowship at University of California, Kaiser Permanente.


Robert Blake

Robertson will be joined later this month by Robert Blake, MD, who earned a medical degree from Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons. He completed residency training in orthopedic surgery at University of Texas Health Science Center, and a fellowship in hand and microsurgery at Christine M. Kleinert Institute for Hand and Microsurgery.


Darren Herzog

Later this summer, Darren Herzog, MD, will complete the three-surgeon team. He earned a medical degree from University of Hawaii John A. Burns School of Medicine, completed residency training in orthopedic surgery at Detroit Medical Center/Wayne State University and completed an adult reconstruction fellowship at University of California.
