DR. MATTHEW GOODWIN
RECONSTRUCTIVE AND PLASTIC SURGEON
CELL THERAPY AND REGENERATIVE MEDICINE SPECIALIST

Dr. Matthew Goodwin, MD, serves as a Plastic Surgery and Reconstruction Specialist at Okyanos Center for Regenerative Medicine. Dr. Goodwin performs liposuction to safely harvest a patient’s stem cells, the first critical step in the repair and regeneration of damaged areas of the body.

Dr. Goodwin is certified with the American Board of Plastic Surgery. He is a graduate of Princeton University and Yale University Medical School. He finalized his general surgery and plastic surgery training at the University of Minnesota; Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri; and Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore, Maryland. Subsequently, Dr. Goodwin was awarded an international fellowship at Chang Gung Memorial Hospital, in Taiwan, a center on the leading edge of advancing reconstructive techniques.

After years of surgical training, Dr. Goodwin has dedicated his life to helping people improve their lives through plastic surgery and reconstruction. Dr. Goodwin is on staff at an advanced cosmetic surgery and medical spa facility, as well as four medical centers in Palm Beach County.

For more than a decade a major component of his practice has included liposuction to gather high-quality donor tissue for approved cosmetic and reconstructive breast and body contouring through fat and stem cell injection treatments. Dr. Goodwin is also a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Surgery at Florida International University, Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine.

While passionate about first-rate surgical treatment, Dr. Goodwin is also focused on the need for excellence in patient care. For six consecutive years, he was awarded the Patients’ Choice Award for service and compassion. As tabulated by Vitals.com, millions of patient experiences are annually reviewed to honor the very top tier of physicians. Among Dr. Goodwin’s reviews, “He never rushes you… He would take the time to answer each and every question… Every patient is important to him.”

As part of his desire to help all patients, Dr. Goodwin signed on as a volunteer plastic surgeon in Haiti to treat earthquake and disaster victims. This strong doctor-patient relationship is honored at Okyanos, where the focus is always on the patient.
