Matthew Rudoloph, DO, is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon who helps patients return to the activities and lifestyle they enjoy. His decision to become a physician was influenced by the many surgeries his mother had during his youth, and by serving as an emergency medical technician during his college years.

"I'm very patient-focused," Dr. Rudoloph said. "In today's world, there has to be a partnership between the doctor and patient. I provide the information, and together we make decisions based on what the patient wants."

In Athens, he practices sports medicine for local schools and helps people of all ages stay active through arthroscopy, fracture management and joint replacement.

Dr. Rudolph was Wonderful-from my first appointment to my follow up appointments.! Takes his time with you and explains things in a way can understand. I would go to Rudolph again if need be, (hoping for no more injuries though,??). Would trust Dr. Rudolph with any of my family members too. Excellent doc, Wonderful, kind, compassionate and professional staff!

Dr. Rudolph did my knee replacement surgery on December 3rd. I had a very low pain after the surgery, great follow-up and now back to normal walking 2 months later.

Dr. Rudolph has replaced both of my hips. After each procedure, I returned to work in 10 days. He is a fine, caring Physician with a Staff that calls you back and was genuinely interested in my recovery both times. It's been 8 weeks now and I've made a 90% recovery. If I could download a Pic to this review, It would show how I'm back on the stage in Deep Ellum singing at Louie Louie's, and back to my life. Thank You Dr. Rudolph, all of your office Staff and also the people at UT Health in Athens, Tx, for taking such great care of me.

Dr Rudolph is most efficient and knowledgeable as well as caring and his follow-up is excellent...He wasted no time on diagnosing my completely worn-out knee. He allayed all my fears with his courteous professionalism before, during and after total knee replacement! Highly recommend 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
