I had knee surgery in April by another physician. Was not done correctly and so I called Dr. Gittens and he said he could see why I was having all of this pain. I used to work with Dr Gittens many years ago. I will go nowhere else in the future.

Review for Dr. Todd

Dr. Mark Gittens is an excellent surgeon and along with his staff at OrthoNeuro, provides great care. I am very pleased with the outcome of my robotic assisted, total knee replacement.

Review for Dr. Todd

Dr. Todd has a pleasant "bedside manner”. He made me feel comfortable and able to trust in his skill and abilities. After just one visit we schedule surgery for my back. We will see how it goes. I am optimistic.
