Monday, August 22, 2016 - Campus News -

Rheumatologist Matlock A. Jeffries, M.D., has established his practice with OU Physicians. He has also been named an assistant professor for the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine. Rheumatologists diagnose and treat degenerative and inflammatory disorders of connective tissues (i.e., arthritis).

Jeffries is board certified in internal medicine and board eligible in rheumatology. He has specific interest in diagnosing, treating and researching osteoarthritis. He has specific expertise in osteoarthritis epigenetics (the study of gene/environment interactions) and is a founding member of an international consortium to study osteoarthritis epigenetics.

Jeffries completed a rheumatology fellowship at the OU College of Medicine, where he also completed an internal medicine residency, serving as chief resident. He also earned his medical degree at the OU College of Medicine. He earned his undergraduate degree in biochemistry from Oklahoma State University.

With more than 660 doctors, OU Physicians is the state’s largest physician group. The practice encompasses almost every adult and child specialty. Many OU Physicians have expertise in the management of complex conditions that is unavailable anywhere else in the state, region or sometimes even the nation. Some have pioneered surgical procedures or innovations in patient care that are world firsts.

OU Physicians see patients in their offices at the OU Health Sciences Center in Oklahoma City and at clinics in Edmond, Midwest City and other cities around Oklahoma. When hospitalization is necessary, they often admit patients to OU Medical Center. Many also care for their patients in other hospitals around the metro area. OU Physicians serve as faculty at the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine and train the region’s future physicians.
