      Dr. Martin saved my life in more ways than one. After renal failure, blood loss, and eight screws in my back...he had "my back" all the time. I will always be grateful for what he has done for me. Prior to surgery, during surgery, and after surgery. My back feels better than it has in many years.
      in Gig Harbor, WA |
      Dr. Martin has taken care of me and my back through 22 years and 5 lumbar surgeries. There is no one I would want operating on my back other than Dr. Martin and his wonderful P.A. Nick Harrison. Many medical career people have told me that if they ever needed back surgery, Dr. Martin is whto they would want.
      in Tacoma, WA |
      Dr. Martin, his PA - Nick Harrison, and the rest of his staff are phenomenal! My husband are constantly referring people we know and meet to him. When other surgeons failed, Dr. Martin handled our back surgeries and neck surgery in stride. Wouldn't go anywhere else!!!

      Has been good to associate with.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
