Stephen Cyphers, MD, has practiced in El Dorado County since 1987. Originally
from Southern California, he completed his medical degree at Loma Linda
University School of Medicine in 1982. After a general surgery internship,
he completed his orthopedic surgery residency at Loma Linda University
Medical Center in 1987, the year he opened what is now called Marshall
Orthopedics & Sports Medicine.
Dr. Cyphers’ repertoire — foot and ankle surgery, total joint
replacement, arthroscopic surgery, among others – includes a history
of innovation. He introduced anterior approach hip replacement surgery
to the community seven years ago; it is now the preferred method for patients
who elect this procedure. He is particularly interested in total knee
replacement. Dr. Cyphers is the only surgeon in this region who performs
total ankle replacement.
Professional affiliations include the American Medical Association and
the California Medical Association. He is a Fellow of the American Academy
of Orthopedic Surgeons.
Dr. Cyphers takes pride in forging relationships with those who receive
his care. He believes in involving patients in decisions regarding their
treatment. Outside of practice, family stands as the top priority. He
shares an avid interest in cycling, skiing, water skiing and travel with
his wife and children. He and his son are also active in amateur auto racing.
