Dr Althaus was great in diagnosing and recommending treatment for my torn labrum in my hip. Started conservative, seeing if we could get results with PT. Listened to my goals for what activities I would ideally like to get back to and which I was willing to give up if necessary. When PT wasn't getting the results, he recommended surgery. He clearly explained what to expect and post-surgery went exactly as intended. Nearly six months out now and back to an active lifestyle. Have full confidence in Dr Althaus' diagnostics, recommendations, and surgical abilities.

My hip surgery went as smooth as possible. Recovery time was very fast and almost pain free. I would (and have) recomend Dr. Althaus and the anterior hip replacement.

Everything was explained well from beginning to the present at each step of the way. All questions were answered in a way that was easily understood. Excellent service from all the staff from the xray tech to the nursing staff and office assistants. Very satisfied with my entire experience.

I am so very thankful I found Dr Althaus! My knee replacement surgery went so much better than I had even hoped for! After less than 2 weeks, I am walking independently. I’m going for walks again.... it’s been years since I’ve been able to do that! Dr Althaus is a very talented surgeon, but he is equally kind and compassionate! His nursiIng staff is top notch! I wish I could give them more than 5 stars! I am recommending him to everyone who asks about my recent surgery. Thank you, Dr Althaus!

I live in MN and was visiting when I broke my ankle. Dr Althaus looked at my xray and said "you broke it good!" Being from out of town, I was very nervous but Dr Althaus and his staff but my fears at ease. Surgery was wonderful, out of the hospital that day! If you ever need a foot/ankle doctor/surgeon, I highly recommend this clinic.
