Phoenix Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Shelden Martin Announces October Saturday Clinic Hours at East Valley Location
Phoenix, AZ, October 10, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Dr. Shelden Martin, an orthopedic surgeon with one of the Valley’s leading orthopedic practices, OrthoArizona - Arizona Orthopaedic Associates, has announced his Saturday clinic hours for October, with his next Saturday clinic scheduled for Oct. 12.
Dr. Martin, who is fellowship trained in sports medicine and shoulder/elbow surgery, will perform physician duties on those who find themselves in an orthopedic emergency on specific Saturdays.
His office is conveniently located on the southeast corner of Loop 101 and Warner Road at 2905 W. Warner Road, Suite 23 in Chandler, AZ 85224. To schedule an appointment, please call (480) 685-2850.
“We want to help keep people from paying the high cost of weekend ER bills, and give them the specialized care they need and deserve,” Dr. Martin said. “One in six visits to the ER is for a sports or exercise related injury.”
Dr. Martin said weekend warriors, or people who aren’t very active during the week but become more dangerously active during the weekend, and teen athletes are the main contributors to this statistic. His Saturday clinic hours are designed for just such emergencies.
Dr. Martin’s new Saturday clinics are designed to provide a spectrum of cutting-edge services generally not available on the weekend. Dr. Martin specializes in complex arthroscopic surgery, including ligament reconstruction, cartilage transplants, shoulder and elbow joint replacements, and reverse shoulder replacements.
Currently, Dr. Martin is the head team physician for the Arizona Rattlers and team physician for Desert Vista High School. Previously, he served as part of the team medical staffs for the Carolina Panthers, Charlotte Knights, Joe Gibbs Racing Team and the University of North Carolina.
A board certified orthopedic surgeon who received his bachelor’s degree in chemistry and biology from LaSalle University in Philadelphia, Dr. Martin performed research at the University of Pennsylvania that led to the discovery of the gene responsible for a rare genetic bone disease.
Dr. Martin graduated from medical school at Georgetown University and completed his residency training at Loyola University Medical Center in Chicago. He then completed a shoulder/elbow and sports medicine fellowship at OrthoCarolina in Charlotte, North Carolina.
