Dr. Martin is certified by the American Board of Surgery and the American Board of Plastic Surgery. He grew up in Dothan and graduated from Houston Academy. He then spent the next sixteen years studying at some of the South’s most prestigious institutions, becoming a well-trained plastic surgeon in the process. After completing his training, he returned to Dothan so that he could apply his knowledge and skills to help the people of the Wiregrass area.
He attended college at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, where he graduated with honors, with a major in Chemistry and a minor in Art History. While at Vanderbilt, he was also a devoted student of the French language, and spent time studying at the Vanderbilt Center in Aix-en-Provence, France. After Vanderbilt, he began his medical education at the University of Alabama School of Medicine in Birmingham, where he found his passion and life’s calling – to be a surgeon. He was selected to continue his training at UAB in the Department of Surgery, where he completed a rigorous, comprehensive residency in General Surgery. It was during this time that he was exposed to the broad and dynamic field of Plastic Surgery. He was particularly attracted to the creative aspects of the specialty, and the opportunity to take care of patients of all ages and with a wide variety of problems. He was then selected to do his Plastic Surgery residency in the Department of Plastic and Maxillofacial Surgery at the University of Virginia, where he received broad training in all aspects of the specialty.
While he was away completing his training, Dr. Martin married the former Kate Denney, who also grew up in Dothan. They have two children, Parish and Helen. Dr. Martin and his family are very excited to be back at home in the Wiregrass area, and to have the opportunity to serve the wonderful people who call it home.
