"I believe in patient-centered care and strive to provide my patients and their families with 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."
In his free time, Dr. Shapiro enjoys spending time with his family, skiing, hiking, and camping.

Dr. Matthew S. Shapiro performs rare kneecap restructuring and realignment procedure

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.
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!
In March 2016, Dr Shapiro performed left shoulder orthoscopic surgery, removing a bone spur and repairing a minor rotator cuff tear, along with various arthritic cleanup. In the 8 months since, I have recovered 100% of my strength and mobility in my left shoulder. I am 74 years old, and I play 18 holes of golf 2-3 times a week, I swim 15-20 laps in the pool at 55-60 second intefvals 3-4 times a week, and I lift weights in the gym 3-4 times a week, now bench pressing up to 200 lbs.
Subsequent to my shoulder surgery, Dr Shapiro also diagnosed both knees to be candidates for replacement due to the lack of cartlige. He recommended and administered visco injections in both knees over a 5 week period of time. Since then I have full use of both knees for cycling, walking and golfing with minimal or no pain.
Overall, I rate my experience with Slocum and Dr Shapiro as outstanding and wouldn't think of going elsewhere for orthopedic care. I plan to continue triathlon training and competition this spring and summer.

I am a PACU nurse. Matt has been our orthopedic surgeon for over a decade. ACL repair on our 15 year old soccer player (who went on to play college and pro), shoulder rotator cuff repair on my husband as well as a later bicep avulsion repair, and my elbow break and ongoing knee issues that require injections of cortisone and hyaluronic acid. Just as his patients did I recovered, we always recover well, without complications, and healed nicely to a better state.
I had a torn tendon in my left elbow which the doctor cut loose and re-attached into the upper arm bone marrow. I was very happy with the job he did and how he explained the procedure and things that may later occur.
