Tulsa Bone & Joint Associates is pleased to welcome Ian Goodman, MD. Dr. Goodman is a sports medicine fellowship trained surgeon who will be seeing patients at our Owasso clinic. His interests include hip, shoulder and knee arthroscopy, complex knee and shoulder reconstructive surgeries, ankle arthroscopy and ligamentous stabilization, and fracture care.
Dr. Goodman is a native of Russellville, Ark. After completing his undergraduate degree at the University of Central Arkansas, where he played collegiate soccer, he then completed his medical training at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. Dr. Goodman then spent five years in Orthopaedic Surgery Residency at San Antonio Military Medical Center (Brooke Army Medical Center and Wilford Hall Medical Center) in San Antonio, Texas. During this time, he trained at Level 1 trauma centers as well as the Air Force Academy and Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego, Calif.
Dr. Goodman was active duty in the U.S. Air Force during his residency and was promoted to major while serving at Eglin Air Force Base outside of Destin, Fla. During this time, he cared for airmen, seaman, and army soldiers and spent time as lead team orthopaedic surgeon for the Army 7th Special Forces Group Green Berets and Air Force Special Operations Squadron. While serving as a staff surgeon, Dr. Goodman was deployed to Afghanistan for six months, where he served as Medical Director at Craig Joint Theatre Hospital at Bagram Airfield from June to Nov. 2020. At the conclusion of his active service, he was awarded a Meritorious Service Medal for the care he provided for his fellow service members, and the specific medical needs for the local Special Forces community.
After his tenure in the Air Force, Dr. Goodman went to fellowship training at the University of Kansas Medical Center in Orthopaedic Surgery Sports Medicine. While there, he learned the skills required to take care of complex shoulder, knee, hip and ankle injuries, including ligamentous injuries, cartilage injuries, instability, tendon ruptures, and restoration of complex joint biomechanics.

During this time, he served as a team physician for the University of Kansas Jayhawks football and national championship men’s basketball team, the Kansas City Chiefs, and the Kansas City Royals.
Tulsa Bone & Joint is thrilled to keep more residents of Owasso and surrounding areas close to home by offering a clinic in Owasso and orthopedic surgery at Ascension St. John Owasso. The hospital has implemented new equipment to accommodate Dr. Goodman’s surgeries, including a postless hip arthroscopy table, a computerized imaging system that is patient-specific to allow the physician to plan in advance for their hip surgery.

He will perform surgeries primarily at Ascension St. John Owasso.

Tennis elbow or lateral epicondylitis is a painful condition that occurs when there is inflammation or irritation of the tendons that attach to the outside of your elbow. This is typically caused by overloading or repetitive motion of your wrist and arm resulting in tiny tears of the tendons of the forearm muscles.
Despite its name, tennis players are not the only people who develop tennis elbow. Other athletes can develop this as well as folks who have jobs that require them to perform repetitive motions with their wrist and elbow (e.g., painters, desk/office workers, plumbers, electricians).
This condition can be really painful and limiting especially with normal daily activities that require twisting, turning or gripping. Fortunately, this condition can be treated conservatively. Stretching your wrist flexors and wrist extensors and performing eccentric exercises, where you are lowering your wrist slowly after raising it, are quite helpful with reducing and relieving your pain.
A visit to Tulsa Bone & Joint Physical Therapy is also a very good option, as we are equipped with the knowledge to educate you about your condition as well as guide you through an exercise program specific to you and the activities that you would like to return to.
Try the Wrist Flexor stretches below to help improve the mobility of your wrist and stretch the forearm muscles.
