"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.

“From my initial evaluation & diagnosis by Dr. Shapiro to my final follow up post surgery, I was/am impressed with his direct communication approach. Others I have spoken with thought he was too dry or even condescending but I am not left with this impression. His confident demeanor and direct questions to me made both of our expectations and goals unified. My surgery was not at all what was expected based on range of motion and MRI analysis, and Dr. Shapiro had to react and change plans based on findings. My surgery ended up much more involved than was first thought, and thus my recovery was much longer and more involved than first thought. I am 9 months post surgery and am very much pleased with my outcome to date. At the 1 year mark (our goal) I should be 100% and have no doubts I will be there. Dr. Shapiro literally changed my life, and I am forever thankful! I would also like to compliment Leslie in physical therapy who was a huge enabler for me in my long process of recovery!”
