About / My Philosophy
Dr. Gregory M. Martin (founder of Personalized Orthopedics of the Palm Beaches) is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon who specializes in hip and knee arthritis and other painful disorders. He has advanced fellowship training in reconstructive surgery of the hip and knee from Harvard Medical School. His five-year orthopaedic surgery residency was completed at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. He has learned from many of the pioneers in hip and knee replacement and was educated at several of the most prestigious hospitals in the country for joint replacement surgery (Boston: Brigham and Women’s Hospital and New England Baptist Hospital. New York: Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center). He received his medical doctorate summa cum laude from the State University of New York and was inducted into Alpha Omega Alpha, the elite medical honor society. He earned his bachelor of science at the University of Miami, where he developed his love of the Florida lifestyle.
Although Dr. Martin has extensive training and experience with state-of-the-art surgical options, he always recommends this as a last resort. He regularly treats patients with non-operative measures including medications, injections, physical therapy, and bracing. He provides insight on nutritional supplements, as well. When non-operative treatments fail, Dr. Martin discusses all available elective surgical options. He has extensive experience in less invasive hip and knee replacement (total and partial), arthroscopy, osteotomies, cartilage replacement, and joint preserving surgery. He has special expertise in complex revision/failed total hip and knee surgery. His current focus and research interest is in “fast-recovery” hip and knee replacement.
He has presented and taught at national meetings and has authored numerous publications and book chapters on hip and knee replacement. He is a member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery. He is a member of the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons, a selective group of high-volume joint replacement surgeons. He is currently Chief of Orthopedic Surgery at JFK Medical Center and is leading the development of a world-class joint replacement center. His mission is to be a caring, compassionate physician and surgeon and to provide successful outcomes for his patients.
