Matthew Lilley, MD is an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in the study, evaluation, and treatment of shoulder, hip and knee injuries and conditions. A native of Central Oregon, he became interested in medicine at a young age after working on a hay farm with a local general surgeon.

Dr. Roth has experience in all facets of pediatric orthopedics, with specialized training in limb and spinal deformity, hip preservation, foot and ankle conditions, sports medicine, and neuromuscular disease management, as well as pediatric and adult trauma.

Dr. Roth’s early education and career was in the field of engineering research and development. After working as an engineer for seven years, he attended graduate school to obtain a biomedical engineering certificate. There he was exposed to medicine and surgery as a career, and found his true calling. He went on to pursue a medical education and was given the opportunity to translate all his life experiences into a meaningful and fulfilling career. His background gives him a unique perspective when treating patients, as well as the ability to integrate his engineering and medical skill-sets for continued clinical research in medical device development, scoliosis, hip preservation, and trauma.
