How likely are you to recommend Dr. Vittetoe?

I've had hip replacement on both hips and I wouldn't go to anyone else to have surgery! Dr. Vittetoe sits down and talks to you as if you are his only patient! His kind personality is wonderful but his expertise in orthopedics is beyond the norm! My husband had his knee replaced by a different orthopedist and after 4 months of PT he still had no extension. He made an appointment with that doctor and was told there was nothing more he could do! I suggested he make an appointment with Dr. Vittetoe; after X-rays Dr. Vittetoe said he could make it better, but not 100%. The results were amazing! The 3rd day after being released he was almost back to normal and he only had 2 PT sessions and they released him! It's no wonder Dr. Vittetoe is known as 'the revisionist!'
