Baldwin Bone & Joint Welcomes New General Orthopaedist, Matthew Goldman, MD
Daphne native eager to provide care for his hometown community
Daphne, Alabama (July 21, 2011) - Baldwin Bone & Joint (BB&J) is pleased to welcome Matthew “Matt” Goldman, MD, as general orthopaedist to its practice. A graduate of The University of Alabama Medical School, Dr. Goldman completed his residency at UAB in July and begins seeing new patients at BB&J's Daphne clinic beginning Monday, August 1.
Dr. Goldman's experience at UAB, a referral center for the most extreme orthopaedic cases, has uniquely prepared him for his BB&J responsibilities, where he will diagnose and treat all orthopaedic conditions with the goal of returning patients as quickly as possible to activities. An athlete at both Christ the King and Daphne High School, Goldman appreciates how active people are in this area.
“I'm committed to educating patients about their treatment options and want them to be proactive in their care. By educating patients and identifying our expectations together, we can develop a strategy to accomplish our treatment goals,” notes Goldman. To that end, he will host community education talks on relevant sports and orthopaedic topics. (Photo: Matthew “Matt” Goldman, MD)
“Dr. Goldman is the perfect fit for our growing practice. As a general orthopaedist trained to care for all orthopaedic conditions, he complements our fellowship-trained specialists. His personality is warm and approachable, and his care philosophy matches our own,” notes BB&J practice senior partner, Dr. John Todd.
Returning to Daphne to serve his hometown was Dr. Goldman's goal 13 years ago when he matriculated to Birmingham for medical school. Prior to medical school, Dr. Goldman worked in the physical therapy department at Thomas Hospital in Fairhope where he witnessed Baldwin Bone & Joint orthopaedists in action. “I was so impressed by their care protocols and attentiveness to patients. They inspired my decision to become an orthopaedist. It's been my goal since then to work with them, so I couldn't be happier,” explains Dr. Goldman. Along with wife Katherine, an occupational therapist, the Goldmans will make their home in Daphne.

The range of orthopaedic specialties here is outstanding.”
Both Dr. Todd and Dr. Corbett are fellowship-trained in sports medicine, which means they have been specially trained to tackle issues related to sports conditioning, injury prevention, diagnosis, physical therapy and surgery.

Dr. Bettencourt said the sports medicine doctors and orthopaedic surgeons at BB&J are impressive mentors on many levels. “The doctors here offer a rare mix of technical skill, teaching ability, obvious interpersonal skills and compassion,” he said.
