    Dr. Robbins was born and raised in Miami, FL. He attended the University of Texas at Austin (BA, English), then ultimately returned home to graduate from the University of Miami School of Medicine in 1999.  He completed his surgical internship and orthopedic residency at Tulane University in New Orleans in 2004. Robbins then completed his pediatric orthopedic fellowship in Memphis, TN, at the Campbell Clinic in 2005. 

    Following this, he completed a mini-fellowship in limb deformity correction at the International Center for Limb Lengthening in Baltimore. After training, Robbins and his family moved to Jackson.

    Prior to joing our department, Robbins and John Purvis, MD, were in private practice at Pediatric Orthopedic Specialists of Mississippi (POSM).  Early in 2009,  Robbins was named “Doctor of the Year” by DrScore.com for having the highest patient-satisfaction rating of all physicians in their database. He joined our department in October 2009.

    Robbins enjoys all aspects of pediatric orthopedics, but his specialty is treating children with congenital and acquired limb anomalies. These include femoral deficiency, tibial and fibular. hemimelia, congenital pseudarthrosis, post-traumatic growth arrest, malunions, nonunions, and various angular and axial deformities such as genu varum, genu valgus, limb length discrepancy and Blount’s disease. Robbins has lectured around the country and regularly serves as an expert faculty member teaching techniques of external fixation and deformity correction to orthopedic surgeons.
