Biography

Michael T. Cain, M.D. is a fellowship-trained, orthopedic surgeon specializing in sports medicine. Originally from Atlanta, Dr. Cain is a graduate of the Georgia Institute of Technology where he earned a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering with highest honors with a minor in Aerospace Engineering. He earned his medical degree from the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta, GA, followed by a residency in orthopedic surgery. Dr. Cain completed an orthopedic sports medicine fellowship at Houston Methodist Hospital in Houston, TX under Dr. David Lintner, working with the Houston Astros, Houston Rockets, Houston Texans, and Houston Dynamo. He also worked extensively with Rice University during his time in Houston.

He specializes in arthroscopy of the knee and shoulder, but also treats general orthopaedic conditions, including fracture care and joint replacement. In 2015, Dr. Cain was honored with first place in the Richmond County Medical Society Resident Research Competition. He has published on topics ranging from revision total shoulder arthroplasty to repair techniques for hamstring avulsions.

In his free time, he enjoys wakeboarding, playing golf, and playing the piano.
