Dr. Driscoll's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Driscoll "Dr. Matthew D. Driscoll is a fellowship-trained Orthopedic Surgeon in Austin, TX specializing in sports medicine, arthroscopy, and comprehensive shoulder and knee surgery. Also fully trained in general orthopedics and fracture management, Dr. Driscoll treats a variety of musculoskeletal conditions and prefers to attempt non-surgical treatments before considering surgery whenever possible. Following his general orthopedic training, Dr. Driscoll was fortunate to spend an additional year developing expertise in sports medicine and arthroscopic surgery before returning to Central Texas. Dr. Driscoll, a native Texan, attended The University of Texas at Austin and graduated summa cum laude. He received his medical degree from Baylor College of Medicine, where he was awarded the Presidential Scholarship and graduated with honors (Alpha Omega Alpha). He completed his orthopedic residency training at Scott and White Memorial Hospital, then was selected to spend an additional year of training in Sports Medicine and Arthroscopy at the world renowned Southern California Orthopedic Institute (SCOI). While at SCOI, he had the opportunity to work directly with some of the pioneers of arthroscopic and minimally invasive surgery of the shoulder, knee, hip, and ankle. Throughout his career, Dr. Driscoll has been actively involved in research and education, authoring numerous scientific articles and textbook chapters and presenting research nationally and internationally. Dr. Driscoll has received several awards for his work including the Arthroscopy Association of North America J. Whit Ewing Research Award. His research interests include optimizing knee stability in ACL reconstruction, biologic augmentation of meniscus healing, surgical treatment of shoulder instability and associated bone injury, and functional outcomes following total knee replacement. Dr. Driscoll has experience treating athletes at all levels of competition, and also enjoys helping patients from all walks of life. From the competitive athlete to the weekend warrior with nagging shoulder pain or the baby boomer who likes to maintain an active lifestyle, his mission is to provide you with the same level of excellent service and compassionate care that he would offer a member of his own family. Dr. Driscoll and his wife, Morgan, live in Austin with their two children. In his free time, Dr. Driscoll enjoys running, watersports, UT athletics, and spending time with friends and family."
