John Hinchey, M.D., founded The San Antonio Orthopaedic Group in 1947. Dr. Hinchey was the first orthopaedic surgeon in South Texas. During his early years, he traveled to hospitals as far west as Midland and as far south as Brownsville, carrying his own instruments with him, so he could perform surgeries.
Over the years, Dr. Hinchey grew his practice by partnering with a number of well-respected surgeons who all shared his vision of providing the highest quality orthopaedic, medical and surgical care to the South Texas community.
Today, The San Antonio Orthopaedic Group continues Dr. Hinchey’s vision with more than 25 board-certified surgeons that are experienced, skilled and subspecialty trained to treat and care for the full range of musculoskeletal disorders throughout the South Texas region.
