Richard Martin, MD


I first became interested in Orthopedics when I was 13 years old. I was playing football and broke my back. My Orthopedic Surgeon impressed me with his knowledge and compassion for what I was going through. My interest in the specialty continued to grow over the years with various athletic injuries that I sustained. A rotation in Orthopedics during medical school confirmed my desire to be an Orthopedist. A young athlete came into the Emergency Room with a dislocated shoulder. He was in incredible pain. The Orthopedic residents expertly reduced the shoulder in no time. The patient was so thankful! That is what I love about Orthopedic Sports Medicine. Active people are given the chance to return to their active lifestyles.
