Excellent service and care. I will be back to have the right hand operated on later in the year.

Dr. Mitchell removed the hardware from my right ankle, which healed perfectly. I regained my full walking capability and can do more than five miles at the age of 84 in the forest. I am giving a big, heartfelt thank you to Dr. Mitchell.

Had my second hip replaced in October, 2016. My first hip was replaced in December, 2015. The quality of my life is most certainly improved and my expectations were all met or exceeded. My sincere thanks to the Doctors and Staff at Orthopedics Associates.
