He graduated from the University of Nottingham in the United Kingdom, before completing his initial two post-graduate years working in the NHS. He then moved to Australia to work in Sports Medicine and was initially based in the Gold Coast. 

 Dr Smith has spent time training in Emergency Medicine and Orthopaedics as a Registrar at Gold Coast University Hospital, before enrolling in Sports Medicine training. 

Dr Smith has a particular interest in both codes of rugby, as well as tendon problems and general medical issues, including inherited cardiac disorders.

His sports team experience includes:

Dr Smith enjoys helping anyone to rid themselves of their musculoskeletal problems, from athletes to those who don’t exercise but are prevented from doing what they want by pain or dysfunction. He specializes in the management of acute and chronic musculoskeletal injuries, as well as knee, foot and ankle pain.

Dr Smith is actively involved in research and has conducted research into inherited cardiomyopathies, as well as sports-related hand and ankle injuries. He has presented talks at a local and state level with respect to management of acute shoulder injuries, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and low back pain.

Dr Smith does not need a GP referral to see patients, and has the same ability to access rapid appointments for radiology. He works closely with Orthopaedic surgeons and can, if necessary, refer quickly on for surgical opinions as well.

Martin is looking forward to helping you on your way to recovery soon.
