Dr. Jeffrey Watson is an orthopedic surgeon at Orthopaedic Medical Group of Tampa Bay (OMG) who attended the United States Air Force Academy. During his time at the US Air Force Academy he received several honors that led him to earning a scholarship to attend Georgetown University for medical school. He continued his orthopedic training at University of Maryland where he was awarded the top teaching resident by the Journal of Orthopaedic Trauma and served as Academic Chief Resident.
After his surgical training, Dr. Watson was assigned to MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, FL where he was the top ranking military officer in his department and served as Chief of Orthopaedics. He went on to become Board Certified in Orthopaedic Surgery and is now a Diplomate of the Board.
In 2014, Dr. Watson separated from the US Air Force. He currently practices at OMG's Tampa and St. Petersburg offices. His focus is on sports medicine and athletic related injuries in both youth and adult patients. He is a strong advocate of using PRP and Stem Cell Therapy in treating his patients.
Dr. Watson's goal is to serve the Tampa community and military by helping patients return to activity. He co-founded Tampa Sports Academy (TSA), a training facility attached to OMG's Tampa location, to integrate all the services necessary for elite performance and recovery.
