Dr. Martin's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Martin "I am a board certified orthopedic surgeon specializing in sports medicine, shoulder, elbow, and knee surgery. Are you currently limited by injury or pain? Do you want the best care but not have to wait weeks or months to be seen? Do you want a doctor to spend the time with you to sincerely listen to your story, concerns and expectations and then thoroughly explain the reason for your symptoms and the treatment options in a clearly understandable way? Do you want to share in the decision making regarding the best treatment for you, as opposed to being told what surgery you need? Do you want to always be seen by your doctor, as opposed to a physician's assistant or nurse practitioner? Then call my office today and experience the way elite orthopedic care should be. With my unique scheduling system, I provide same and next day appointments. I respect your time with prompt and thorough evaluations. I devote the necessary time to each of my patients to thoroughly listen and then together decide on the optimal, personalized and customized treatment for your needs and expectations. It is no wonder that the Arizona Rattlers, Arizona Diamondbacks, and Chicago White Sox trust me to take care of their players. Experience the way elite orthopedic care can and should be delivered.

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Martin "I understand that whether you are a professional athlete, a weekend warrior or a minimally active sedentary individual, you have unique circumstances, goals and expectations when faced with injury or pain.  These factors can only be thoroughly understood with careful attention and listening to you.  I always try to respect your time with prompt but thorough evaluations, and then discuss plainly all of your options in a way that is understandable.  I believe that the best outcomes result from shared decision making regarding the most personalized, customized treatment plan to return you to an active lifestyle."
