      Dr. Pytiak performed two surgeries on my daughter, one for knee cap reconstruction and the other for MPFL repair. We felt comfortable immediately with him. He explained everything to her and treated her FIRST and then made sure we understood everything that was happening. He was thorough in all his follow ups. I hope we never need to use him again, but if we do, I wouldn't hesitate to have him treat any of my kids. I highly recommend Dr. Pytiak! He made a very scary incident for my twelve year old (and her parents) manageable.

      Our teenage daughter injured her knee and needed extensive knee surgery a year ago. She is on the autism spectrum, so it was particularly traumatic for her, and worrisome for us. Dr. Pytiak and Zacc Ivy were fantastic...they explained the surgery in a way she would understand, patiently answered all of her questions, and made sure she was okay with every detail. Her follow-up care has been just as first-rate. We had the list of recommended physical therapists in advance, so we were able to set up her appointments, and the staff made sure we had all of our follow-up visits scheduled. Dr. Pytiak has never been in a rush and always takes the time to explain everything. He is a highly skilled surgeon, but also a kind and compassionate doctor...just what you want for your child. We highly recommend Dr. Pytiak!

      We switched doctors to find Dr. Pytiak. He is a great surgeon and did a fabulous job during surgery. I would give him a 5. However, the communication, or lack thereof, after my son's surgery has not been good at all. His office didn't even call to check on his afterward, even tho he unexpectedly had to stay overnight because of a bad reaction to anesthesia. They didn't tell me about lining up pt appts way in advance. When I tried to get in with their recommended list of therapists, they were all about 3 weeks out. I literally met the doctor right before surgery and have yet to see him again, have only seen and talked to the pa. Is this normal?? I know that the doctor, and his staff, goes thru NUMEROUS kids a week. I get it. But I have one child and I want them to take it a little more seriously. Just highly disappointed after a great surgery that was a little uncommon.

      Dr. Pytiak was caring, patient and incredibly skilled when he reset and rebuilt my daughter’s elbow. Her recovery time was quick and she healed beautifully.

      Very good surgeon. He was thorough with his assessment of our situation and non judgmental with our many questions and concerns. So far the recovery has been exactly as Dr. Pytiak determined.

      We came to Dr. Pytiak for a second opinion for my son's shoulder. Originally, he was told it was bursitis and he could control it with exercise. After seeing Dr. Pytiak, he definitely confirmed he had a torn labrum and was willing to do the surgery! This was the best move for Craig after not being able to fully use his arm for over a year. Thank you Dr. Pytiak for doing such an amazing job in repairing Craig back to his original state to go and become active again! Dr. Pytiak used down to earth terms in explaining his procedures and made us feel totally secure! Thanks again!

      My 3 year old broke his left arm during the summer. Dr. Pytiak and his staff took care of him and did a great job. At first my son was a little scared to have xrays or even the doctor touching his arm. Dr Pytiak and staff were very patient and caring of my little boy and during the follow up appointments my son was looking forward to see Dr Pytiak and having “photos” taken of his arm. I also want to mentioned that my son had surgery and the before and after care from Dr Pytiak was outstanding!

      Dr Pytiak made what was a difficult situation as stress free as possible. From our initial interaction, we were put at ease as he was friendly, clearly explained what was going on, and how he reached his diagnosis. He then took time to describe his recommended course of treatment, going through all pros and cons and potential outcomes. What impressed me most, he took time to speak to my young son directly, telling him what was happening, and what the plan of action was. Highly recommended!

      Dr. Pytiak and the staff were wonderful. I feel as though our time was respected and the doctor's knowledge was spot on. After reviewing symptoms and an exam the doctor had xrays taken at the facility. They were reviewed and discussed all at the initial appointment. The prognosis was clearly articulated and we left within an hour of our arrival. I feel as though I got three doctor appointments done at one time!!!!!

      De Pytiak was a lifesavor when my son had a severe break on his left elbow. Dr. Pytiak was kind, thoughtful and well trained. Dr. Pytiak looks very young but is as competent as a seasoned orthopedic surgeon. The break my son suffered was a nine month ordeal but Dr. Pytiak was a comfort and support during the process. I would recommend Dr Pytiak and his staff to anyone who needs orthopedic surgery. I am very happy to say my young athlete is back on the basketball court!

      An amazing doctor. I have had 7 knee surgeries all together. 3 on my left knee and 4 on my right knee and doctor Pytiak has done 3 of them. Doctor Pytiak has done so much for me and has helped so much with all my knee problems. I am blessed to have found such an amazing doctor.
