Dr. Robert C. Martin

As an experienced, compassionate orthopedic surgeon, my goal is to provide care through a patient centered approach focusing on quality of life. I am genuinely interested in my patients, their families and improving their quality of health. As a surgeon, I have made it a priority to maintain my skills at the highest level to provide my patients with the most progressive care possible. I enjoy treating a wide range of orthopedic problems but have a special interest in advanced arthroscopic surgery, sports medicine, knee and shoulder problems.
