Matthew William Hyzy, DO

Dr. Matthew William HyzyDr. Hyzy is a Chicago native but moved to Florida in his youth and started his pursuit of medical training. He is a graduate of LECOM Bradenton where he started to develop his interest in Neuromuscular medicine. Dr. Hyzy completed residency training at The University of Texas at Austin Dell Medical School in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation ( P.M.R./Physiatry). There, he garnered numerous clinical experiences in Physiatry, Orthopedics, Neurosurgery, Interventional Physiatry, Pain Management and Regenerative Medicine, which fueled his desire to pursue more training in Interventional Orthopedics and Regenerative Medicine. He was subsequently honored to be chosen as a fellow in Interventional Orthopedics at the Centeno Schultz clinic.

Dr. Hyzy’s previous role as a personal fitness instructor, an Osteopathic Physician, and a Physiatrist have all aligned in a Holistic approach to the treatment of patients with pain, impairments, and dysfunction. He uses these experiences to optimize function and decrease pain with biomechanical evaluation, procedural interventions including diagnostic and interventional ultrasound and fluoroscopically guided procedures. He seeks to pursue additional training in Interventional Orthopedics and regenerative medicine to promote the field in patient outcomes and research. Dr Hyzy has served on numerous organized medicine associations, provided medical coverage for the annual Austin Marathon and provided pre participation athletic physicals as a resident physician.

Dr. Hyzy is excited to join the Centeno-Schultz clinic as a fellow in Interventional Orthopedics. His research interests include the use of Orthobiologics in musculoskeletal medicine and participating in new treatment strategies to assist patients. Outside of Medicine, his interests include exploring the Rocky Mountain active lifestyle, paddle boarding, Mtn. Biking, Yoga, international cuisine and spending time with his family and friends.
