Dr. Richard Martin, MD
Dr. Richard Martin is a board certified orthopedic surgeon who specializes in arthroscopic surgery and sports medicine. After breaking his back at a young age and falling under the care of a local orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Martin developed an interest in sports medicine and post injury rehabilitation. As such, he eventually pursued a career in orthopedic surgery. After earning his medical degree at the University of Illinois, he went on to complete his orthopedic surgical residency at the prestigious Henry Ford Hospital. Dr. Martin has had the honor of working with many respected physicians throughout his career. He completed his fellowship training under Dr. J.R. Steadman of the world-renowned Steadman Clinic in Vail, Colorado. During his time at the clinic, Dr. Martin honed his skills in arthroscopic and reconstructive surgery and developed a strong, patient-centric treatment approach. From premier, multi-million dollar athletes to normal, hardworking citizens, Dr. Steadman cared for each patient based on their needs, not their means. This is a principle Dr. Martin applies to his own practice today. Dr. Martin has served as a team physician for multiple local high schools and professional sports teams, including the Paradise Valley School District, Arizona Diamondbacks, Detroit Lions, Detroit Tigers, and Detroit Redwings. He is dedicated to the advancement of orthopedic surgery and sports medicine and is published in several medical journals for topics pertaining to his specialty. Currently, Dr. Martin is researching the evaluation, treatment, and prevention of golf injuries. Part of his research includes looking at the physiological demands of an efficient golf swing and golf injuries as they relate to muscular imbalance and poor technique. Dr. Martin has been a recurrent recipient of the prestigious "Top Doc" title in the Phoenix Magazine publication of the same name. He feels very fortunate to have been involved with Arizona Bone and Joint Specialists since its early beginnings, and he is dedicated to serving the population of Arizona with the best orthopedic care available. Dr. Martin and his wife are the proud parents of 18-year-old triplets and a 16-year-old singleton. He and his family are involved in various charities throughout the Valley, such as Board of Visitors, National Charity League, and Mother's Grace. In his spare time, Dr. Martin likes to golf, mountain bike, ski, and hike.

My experience with Dr. Martin is always profoundly excellent. I respect & trust him. He operated on my full rotator cuff right shoulder and he did an astonishing remarkable job surgically. My shoulder/arm pain was excruciatingly out of control and now I do not have that pain anymore because of his mastery as an excellent surgeon. He is very involved in my recovery process and is very accomadating in my progression. He is a wonderful gentlemen & makes things easy in regards to my comprehension

Dr. Martin dismissed my shoulder pain and referred me to a spine surgeon. Rather than looking into my pain further via MRI, he would have seen the extent of the internal damage as an "extensive SLAP tear from the 1:00 position to the 9:00 position" along with other problems. I have surgery in a few days. Thank God I got a second opinion.

Just had surgery with Dr Martin on my left knee. He also did surgery 2 years ago on my right knee. I completely trust him and have had no pain and am back to close to normal 3 weeks post surgery. I would send friends to him. He's really good.

Stay away!!! Dr. Martin and his staff almost killed me in 2015 with their lack of attention to obvious symptoms of a major femoral blood clot, a piece of which had broken off and hit my lung. His staff is not qualified or sensitive to patients concerns, ignoring several calls and emails regarding these problems. After 2 weeks I eventually wound up in the hospital in intensive care, needing 3 surgeries to correct his neglect. I am lucky to be alive. He is arrogant with God complex.

Dr. Martin repaired a severely torn rotator cuff & my recovery was nothing short of miraculous. Playing tennis & golf in 6 months with full range of motion. Thanks Doc for giving me my life back.
