Cody Martin, MD is a board certified orthopedic surgeon. He completed medical school at the University of Utah, finished his residency at the University of Florida Jacksonville, with clinical rotations at the Mayo Clinic in Florida, and earned his fellowship while focusing on hip and knee joint reconstruction at the University of Virginia.
He is honored that patients allow him to be part of their lives through the doctor-patient relationship. "When that relationship is based on trust, honest communication, hard work and quality care, patients are able to overcome their ailments and enjoy a better quality of life,” Martin said.
Cody’s mother, a nurse, introduced him to the field of medicine at a young age. He has always enjoyed helping people and problem solving; both fundamental requirements of a skilled physician. His interest in medicine continued while serving a mission is West Africa, where he was fortunate to be able to assist in prenatal clinics.
Prior to his pursuit of medicine, Cody received a degree in Chemical Engineering from Brigham Young University. Having a foundational education in engineering has strengthened Cody’s ability to problem solve and think conceptually while in the operating room. The son of a general contractor, Cody grew up working on construction sites, working with his hands, and using power tools. He feels right at home working with delicate power tools on the human body while repairing joints.
“One of the sweetest joys in this life is helping relieve someone else’s pain and suffering," said Martin. "I love being an orthopaedic surgeon, because I am able to see patients overcome their injuries and musculoskeletal problems, and improve their quality of life. I may not have all the answers, but I have the resources to ensure that I can provide the very best care an orthopaedic surgeon has to offer.”
Cody is looking forward to practicing medicine while being closer to his family, and in a region with plenty of outdoor activities. When not practicing medicine, Cody enjoys spending time with his children, playing sports, running and hunting. Cody is open to most hobbies – he even took a Latin dance class with his wife during college.
