He thinks outside the box. I had another doctor from somewhere else ready to do surgery again on my foot. Dr Witkowski sent me for another test and came up with another idea. He said if my cortisone shot worked, then surgery would work with my issue. Otherwise, he said there was not surgery that could help. He is honest. So far the shot is doing great!

You can tell Dr. Witkowski is best in class when it comes to an ankle break. He is so knowledgeable and experienced that we trusted him immediately, and we were right to do so. He is very direct in his communication which we appreciate. My son was elated 3 months post op when he heard Å“ Im gonna cut you loose!?. After all of the technical details of managed rehab, and X-rays, and follow up, it was music to our ears.
