Dr Wixted is the best orthopedic surgeon around. I had a ankle open fracture and thank God, dr. Wixted was working at MGH on that horrific night of my accident. He did a fabulous job on my foot/ankle. 16 years passed and I am doing absolutely great.

My visits with Dr. Piemonte always leave me at ease. He’s cautious but optimistic. I always leave my visit with hope and contentment. I have complete faith in his abilities, and I appreciate that he listens!!! Whatever my outcome is, I trust him and have confidence in him!
