Orthopedic Surgery & Sports Medicine

Dr. Martin is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon with expertise in arthroscopic ACL primary and revision surgery, arthroscopic rotator cuff and revision surgery, arthroscopic shoulder instability surgery, and patella stabilization surgery. He was initially drawn to the field of orthopedic sports medicine after experiencing a sports injury at 13-years-old. It was later during medical school that Dr. Martin realized that he derived tremendous satisfaction from helping active people return to their active lifestyles via the field of orthopedics.  Dr. Martin received both his undergraduate and medical degree from the University of Illinois. He later completed his orthopedic surgical residency at the prestigious Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, Michigan. Shortly thereafter, Dr. Martin was honored with a sports medicine fellowship with Dr. J.R. Steadman of the world-renowned Steadman Clinic in Vail, Colorado, where he further honed his skills in shoulder, elbow and knee arthroscopic and reconstructive surgery. Dr. Martin is proud to have served as a team physician for the Arizona Diamondbacks in addition to being an integral member of the medical team for the Detroit Lions, Detroit Tigers, and Detroit Redwings. He has also served as a team physician for multiple local high schools, and is the former medical director for the Paradise Valley School District Athletic Program. Dedicated to the advancement of medicine, Dr. Martin is a published author and frequent lecturer on a variety of topics pertaining to orthopedic surgery and sports medicine. His current research projects include evaluation, treatment and prevention of golf injuries. Dr. Martin currently serves on the Executive Committee, Quality Assurance Committee and Workers’ Compensation Committee for OrthoArizona and he has been a recurrent recipient of the prestigious “Top Doc” title bestowed annually by PHOENIX Magazine.
