Matthew J. Griffin, M.D. is an orthopaedic surgeon with additional subspecialty
training in surgery of the foot and ankle. He completed a prestigious
fellowship in Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Surgery with internationally
recognized field leader and innovator Michael J. Coughlin, M.D. at the
Coughlin Clinic in Boise, Idaho. His Orthopaedic Surgery residency was
completed at the University of Southern California/LAC+USC where he received
an extensive orthopaedic trauma experience in one of the busiest Level
1 Trauma Centers in the country. This extensive 5-year training covered
all aspects of orthopaedic surgery including pediatrics, trauma, spine,
hand, foot and ankle, infection, tumor, total joint replacement and sports
medicine. Originally from Orange County, Dr. Griffin attended the University
of California, Irvine for undergraduate studies graduating in the top
of his class (summa cum laude). He stayed at the University of California,
Irvine for medical school graduating in the top of his class (alpha omega alpha).
Dr. Griffin's foot and ankle practice focuses on all aspects of foot
and ankle care including total ankle replacement, arthroscopy, sports
related injuries, hallux valgus (bunions), hallux rigidus, rheumatoid
arthritis foot pathology, lateral ligament reconstructions, plantar fasciitis/tarsal
tunnel syndrome, hammertoes/mallet toes, plantar plate deficiency, trauma
and complex hindfoot deformity reconstruction. He also responds to general
orthopaedics emergency room calls at Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital.
Dr. Griffin is committed to continuing to provide the highest quality care
for his patients. After a comprehensive evaluation, he provides individualized
treatment, using leading-edge techniques when needed. It’s important
to note that not all foot and ankle conditions need surgery. A careful
risk and benefit approach is used which is unique to each patient and
their associated condition. We are pleased to have Dr. Matthew Griffin
join our team as we continue to provide the highest quality of orthopaedic
care in Monterey County.
In his free time, Dr. Griffin enjoys cycling, hiking, surfing, classic
cars and spending time with his young family.
