Jeffrey Goldberg MD, is a board certified, fellowship-trained surgeon specializing in foot and ankle surgery for musculoskeletal injuries at Optim Orthopedics. 

As the son of two parents who both practiced medicine in Savannah, it was almost a foregone conclusion that one day Dr. Jeffrey Goldberg would carry on the family legacy of care. 

“My parents may or may not have pushed me toward this,” the surgeon said with a smile. “I’ve been around medicine my whole life and I’ve always wanted to help people.”

He went to Colby College in Maine and later attended the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta, where Goldberg was drawn to orthopedics. In addition to the way his work in the orthopedic field can have a direct and measurable impact on the lives of his patients, it was the proactive stance of orthopedics that drew him in.

“I like working with my hands and seeing immediate results,” he said. “So, when I was doing rotations, I gravitated toward orthopedics. It was fun and again you could see results quickly.”

Goldberg did his fellowship in orthopedic foot and ankle surgery in Michigan after spending five years in residency in Lexington, KY at the University of Kentucky. After spending more than 15 years up north, he returned to his home state. Since that time, he joined Optim Orthopedics where he specializes in foot and ankle related issues as well as general orthopedics.

“Working for Optim Orthopedics, I do a lot of foot and ankle: hind-foot, mid-foot, fore-foot and ankle reconstruction for arthritis and deformity,” he said.

 

While he dedicates his days to helping patients, his free time is filled with family.  “I have a wife and two young children; an 11-month-old boy and a three-year-old girl. I love spending time with them,” he said.

“And I love being on the water fishing, so that’s my biggest hobby.”
