As a fellowship-trained, board-certified orthopedic sports medicine and shoulder surgeon, Dr. Boykin specializes in disorders of the shoulder, knee, and hip in addition to all sports-related injuries. He has a focus on using rehabilitation, prevention, biologic treatments, and both arthroscopic and open surgery to restore joint function and keep patients involved in an active lifestyle. Dr. Boykin performs cutting-edge surgery of the shoulder including rotator cuff repair, labral repair, biceps tendon repair, and shoulder replacement. In addition, he performs joint preservation surgery for the knee and hip including the treatment of anterior cruciate ligament tears, meniscal tears, cartilage injury, labral tears of the hip, and femoroacetabular impingement.

He has published numerous scientific articles in peer reviewed journals, authored book chapters, and presented sports medicine research at national and international meetings. Dr. Boykin is a frequent lecturer and teaches the latest and most advanced surgical techniques to surgeons around the country, including hosting visiting surgeons in Asheville. He has served as a team physician for the US men’s and women’s alpine ski team and as a consultant to the Royal Spanish Tennis Federation for hip research in tennis players. He and his team currently serve as the medical providers for Warren Wilson College, North Buncombe High School, and Madison High School.

Originally from South Carolina, Dr. Boykin graduated as a Morehead Scholar with highest distinction from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where he was a member of Phi Beta Kappa. He then received his medical degree from Vanderbilt University, where he was elected president of the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society and vice-president of his class. Dr. Boykin completed internship and residency training in the Harvard Combined Orthopaedic Surgery Residency Program in Boston, MA. He served as administrative chief resident for the Massachusetts General Hospital while also working at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, and Children’s Hospital Boston. While in Boston, he assisted with care of the New England Patriots, Boston Red Sox, and Boston Bruins.

Dr. Boykin then received subspecialty training in sports medicine, knee, shoulder, and hip arthroscopy at the renowned Steadman Clinic in Vail, CO. During his time in Vail, he traveled with the US Alpine Ski Team and worked with numerous professional athletes. After fellowship, he traveled to Annecy, France, where he completed additional subspecialty training in advanced shoulder surgery at the Alps Surgery Institute.
