Dr. Martin's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Martin "Dr. Stephanie Martin is a board-certified specialist in sports medicine and pediatric orthopedics. Dr. Martin developed her love for athletics at a very early age and has always aspired to work with young athletes. Being the daughter of a head basketball coach and athletic director at a college in northeastern Ohio fostered her development as an athlete and enriched her experience taking care of all athletes. Education Dr. Martin attended college at Wittenberg University in Springfield, Ohio where she played varsity volleyball on her way to graduating as valedictorian and majoring in both biology and chemistry. Continuing her education at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, Dr. Martin received honors and graduated at the top of her class. While at Vanderbilt she cared for athletes in many sports, serving as one of the team physicians for the football team and traveling with the women’s soccer team. Dr. Martin completed her five-year residency in orthopedic surgery at Vanderbilt, after which she pursued dual fellowships in pediatric orthopedics and sports medicine. Elite Qualifications The very first fellowship-trained female orthopedist in the country, Dr. Martin is one of only a few orthopedic surgeons in the world who has been fellowship trained in both pediatric orthopedics and sports medicine, and the only female in this elite class that resides in Georgia. She is the first fellowship-trained pediatric sports medicine orthopedist in Georgia and has a certificate of added qualification (CAQ) in sports medicine. In addition, only 2% of all board-certified orthopedic surgeons are women, making Dr. Martin’s experience even more rare. As one of only a few orthopedic surgeons capable of handling complex pediatric conditions, her skills were featured in a Discovery Channel documentary. Professional Affiliations Dr. Martin is extremely active in the Atlanta medical community. She previously served as chief of orthopedics at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston Hospital and as the co-surgical director of the sports medicine program at Children's.

She also teaches students in other areas of healthcare, including students from Morehouse School of Medicine and physician assistants and nurse practitioners students from around Atlanta. Dr. Martin was elected and served six years on the American Academy of Pediatrics’ Executive Committee for the Council of Sports Medicine and Fitness. She has also served on the Executive Board of The Forum for Women’s Orthopedics for the past 10 years. She recently completed her two-year commitment as president and is now serving as the past president. Other professional affiliations include the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, American College of Sports Medicine, and Atlanta Women's Association. In addition, Dr. Martin has authored articles on a variety of topics, including original research on the physiology and benefits of using cryotherapy or “ice therapy” after surgery. Based on her expertise in an emerging and important field of medicine, she has lectured on pediatric orthopedics and sports medicine in meetings and universities around the United States. Personal In her free time, Dr. Martin enjoys running, weight lifting, snow skiing, water skiing, and scuba diving, and she competed in her first triathlon in the last couple of years.
