Matthew S. Shapiro, MD
"I believe in patient-centered care and strive to provide my patients and their families as much relevant and understandable information as possible. This includes the nature of a patient's diagnosis and its normal progression, the surgical and nonsurgical treatment options, and the recovery process for each of the various options. By providing this information, my patients are in the best possible position to make informed choices regarding their care.
As a fellowship-trained and board-certified sports medicine doctor, my practice focuses on the nonsurgical and state-of-the-art arthroscopic surgical treatment of sports-related injuries and conditions affecting the shoulder, elbow, and knee. I understand my patients' desires to continue participating in their favorite sports and activities, and I am dedicated to helping them recover from their injuries or conditions quickly and safely."
"Up until a year ago I was a daily golfer and pickle ball player. After November I, cut back to simply pickle ball since I tore my rotator cuff and in March this year Dr. Shapiro operated and I am back already to a level of play equal to or a little better than ten to twelve months ago. However just ten days ago, your equally wonderful Dr. Routhier treated me for a sprained meniscus with an injection. I forgot my age and started running on the pickle ball court like a 50 year old, I am 69. Anyway, I now have two knee braces and I am again becoming a much-feared competitor. Many thanks!" -- Patrick M.
