Patient Testimonials

Steve B.

Dr. Mittelsteadt and his staff were amazing. I tell everybody about him and TCO. I could not imagine having a better experience. If I ever have to have surgery again I’m going back to TCO! I stayed at the EXCEL Care Suites for a night. Recovering was really nice and the nurses were amazing there too. Thank you so much to TCO for a great experience on something I was regretting. It was not bad at all.

I can’t even begin to say how great Dr. Mittelsteadt has been throughout my surgery and recovery. He is a great surgeon and I would definitely recommend him. His knowledge and patient side manner is above and beyond. Thanks to him, I can walk again!

I am 64 years old and I had a trimalleolar fracture of my left ankle 3 years ago. After a long recovery, I thought the worst was behind me. About 18 months after the accident, I developed post traumatic osteoarthritis of my left ankle. I tried medication, steroid injections and ended up using a cam boot for almost 6 months since I was unable to put weight on my foot due to the pain. I was referred to Dr. Mittelsteadt to see if I was a candidate for ankle replacement. I had the surgery in March 2023. I am now 7 months post-surgery, have completed physical therapy, am walking up to 4 miles every day (which is something I have not been able to come close to for 3 years). Dr. Mittelsteadt is professional, accessible, and kind. The staff at TCO are great! They are very friendly and accommodating. I am very grateful that I was able to have this replacement done and get my mobility back!

David B.

I had both knees replaced in November and December 2022. In August of 2023, I am walking pain free. For both of my surgeries, Dr. Marcus Mittelsteadt receives a perfect 10. I could not be happier with my results. From the clinics, to the hospital and therapy staff, everyone is knowledgeable and friendly.

Joe G.

I was greatly impressed with the ankle joint replacement I received from Dr. Mittelsteadt. I had very little pain through the whole procedure and recovery. I was back to doing most of my normal activities in 4 months. My ankle feels great. I was extremely pleased with the way I was treated at TCO, and particularly by Dr. Mittelsteadt.

Rebecca D.

Dr. Mittelsteadt and his team were amazing! He helped me get through the pain in my ankle until I was ready for surgery. The surgery went even better than expected and only four months later, I am virtually pain free. I would definitely recommend both TCO and Dr. Mittelsteadt.

Debi O.

Dr. Mittelsteadt is the greatest. He was the first of many foot doctors that I’ve seen that actually talked to me. He showed me why I was in pain and told me what he could and offers his help. He talks to me and answers any questions I have. When I have my appointments, he shows up and goes over surgery expectations in detail. He explains what I should be doing to keep my foot healthy. He talks TO me and not AT me. The members of his care team have been a wonderful addition to my care as well. I don’t like doctors, so I know when I find a good one!
