Areas of Interest

After 30 years of doing trauma, my practice involves all aspects of fractures; however, it is dominated by patients with problems related to their hips, knees, and shoulders as well as arthritis-related joint problems. I perform hip and knee replacement surgery, knee and shoulder arthroscopy, and all types of trauma and fracture care.

Philosophy of Care

“My care philosophy is to listen to the patients’ problem, examine their total health history, and try to tailor a treatment plan to solve or lessen the problem, starting with the most conservative approach. I thrive on helping my patients reduce or eliminate their pain, and become active again. It is very rewarding to watch someone come in to see me with a significant problem, work with them over a period of time, and see them return to their prior level of activity.”

Patient Testimonials

"Dr. Matthews is a wonderful caring man. After having bilateral knee replacements himself, he got me in for knee arthroscopy to repair a torn meniscus. Due to a family situation, it was important for me to get this done sooner rather than later. I am indebted to Dr. Matthews for making my surgery happen on December 23 (2015)." – Julia Lawrence
