Dr. Martin is not only a skilled surgeon, he is a good person. He is thorough and explains each step of what he is recommending. Although he is very busy he never seems rushed when he is seeing you. He spends whatever time is needed regarding your problem. He answers all questions and prior to your surgical procedure he stops by the prep room to talk with you. I'm a retired Surgical PA-C anhave experience working with surgeons. I'm confident you'll be very happy with Dr. Martin.

Had my knee scoped in 2015 and severely regret it. Worse off than I was from the beginning. I cannot walk on my knee and every time I go in all I'm offered is ibuprofen. Im not looking for pain meds of any sort I was just praying that I could be somewhat mobile. Also I only had the chance to see Dr.Martin once. No help at all. My knee is constantly swollen and warm and it's been 3years. Only getting worse.

Dr. Martin performed a full knee replacement for me in 2008. Since then I have walked at least a hundred rounds of golf. I 2010 I walked 36 holes of golf in one day on 7 different occasions that year. The amazing part is I was 60 years old with a knee that had damaged at 16 years of age and replaced only 2 years prior. The recovery was work but the results were nothing short of miraculous. I have had several surgeries and numerous hospital stays but none were as professional and yet so personal

Dr. Martin is, without a doubt, the most skillful surgeon I have ever met. He is caring, professional, respectful and yet, humble. He worked so very hard to inform me of what to expect and to follow up with me after the surgery. You are not just another number with this incredible man, you are human and he treats you as such. I am truly blessed that my sister referred me to Dr. Martin and I will forever be grateful. I am walking without pain on a knee that has hurt so badly for 15 years!

5 years ago, Dr. Martin did my left total knee. The minute I knew surgery was imminent , the team verified my appointment, pre-op information, and stayed in contact with me. A total knee was so scary to me. My husband died of a knee infection 8 years before my first total knee. I researched and listened to others and found Dr. Martin, who had a 20 x better infection rate than the national average. So, when my right knee was ready to be done, I used the team that had proven themselves before.

Dr. Martin has done both of my knees. I think God has blessed him with his gift. I would highly recommend him and his staff to anyone having any orthopedic problems. They are very experienced and treat you with respect. I've had no problems with either knee since my surgeries. Glad to be able to walk normal again without pain. God bless you Dr. Martin.

Did a full knee replacement in April, 2015. Couldn't be more pleased with the whole process and how much better I feel.
