Lemak Sports Medicine and Orthopedics, a center of excellence in orthopedic surgery with expertise in all areas of orthopedics and sports medicine with an office in Alabaster, opened its newest facility Feb. 6 in Hoover.

Dr. Amanda Martin will take the reins as the leading orthopedic physician in a new Hoover facility, providing unsurpassed care to athletes, active professionals and youth.

Lemak Sports Hoover is located at 2949 John Hawkins Parkway next to the Patton Creek shopping center – a great location that allows the Hoover community convenient access to some of the best orthopedic care in the country. Martin will provide patient care for a variety of orthopedic needs whether it is a strain, sprain, or an acute injury. She is also fully committed to being heavily involved in community events.

“Local participation in civic organizations, senior independent living facilities and the community as a whole is the cornerstone for success in our practice,” said Martin. “We appreciate all of the opportunities the Hoover and surrounding communities have offered and hope we continue to have the opportunity to be involved.”

Martin is fellowship trained in Orthopedic Sports Medicine by the American Sports Medicine Institute under the leadership of world-renowned Dr. Lawrence Lemak. She is a graduate of The University of Arizona and completed her Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine at Oklahoma State University. Martin is currently the medical director for NCAA Soccer Cup, a consultant for Major League Soccer and serves as the team physician for Hueytown High School and Jacksonville State University.

To date, Hoover will be the 10th clinic Lemak Sports Medicine has opened.

Martin will continue performing surgeries at Trinity Medical Center on Montclair Road in Birmingham. To schedule an appointment with Martin, please call the Hoover location at 444-2025 or the Birmingham location at 397-5200.
