Dr. Richter was the on call orthopedic surgeon when I came into Trident Hospital after a horrific car accident. He mended my broken legs and pelvis. After 6 months of extensive rehab, I just completed a half marathon! Thank you Dr. Richter. You are not only a great surgeon; but, were so kind and caring throughout the entire ordeal.
