About Matthew Baker


Orthopedic surgeon Matthew Baker, MD, enjoys practicing orthopedic surgery because he appreciates active people. He also enjoys helping patients accomplish their goals. For Dr. Baker, each orthopedic surgery case is unique and challenging. When Dr. Baker has free time, he enjoys being active, traveling, scuba diving and tinkering on cars. He chose to live in southeast Missouri because of the opportunity to engage in outdoor activities almost year round.
