"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."

Dr. Matthew Shapiro is available to see patients at our Eugene and RiverBend Pavilion locations.

I had rotator cuff/labrum/bicep tenosis surgery performed at a surgical center in Seattle. I started having pain after the surgery that got worse and my surgeon said everything was fine, return to work. When Dr. Shapiro got my records he was incredible, saw an issue, made no promises about the results but believed it was the correct way to go. 3 days after the surgery I was pain free. A year after the surgery I have almost full use of my shoulder. I cannot thank Dr. Shapiro enough for what he has done for me and recommend him highly.
