Christopher Martin, MD is a board certified, fellowship trained orthopedic surgeon specializing in conditions of the shoulder, elbow and hand. He practices in Salt Lake City, Utah. Dr. Martin earned his medical degree from George Washington University. He then completed residency at Emory University School of Medicine before additional specialty training in multiple, renowned locations across the world, including Niigata University in Japan and Cornell University Hospital

Dr. Martin specializes in the entire upper extremities of a patient. This allows him to have a comprehensive perspective regarding the functional needs of each patient and ensure he is able to care for each of his patient's unique needs.

Dr. Martin believes healthcare is best provided when the patient is an active and educated participant in their care. This is especially true in the decision to pursue operative treatment. Dr. Martin will always educate his patient on their treatment options, then work closely with them to ensure they take the right care path together.

Dr. Martin enjoys the outdoors in any fashion. His hobbies include: mountain biking, hiking, golf, skiing and woodworking. Dr. Martin loves pursuing these activities with my wife Angela and their two sons.
