Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Maurer "The medical field provides a unique opportunity to directly apply clinical principles and innovations while maintaining important personal relationships with patients. I enjoy providing education to my patients and assisting in the process of making the best decision regarding their care. My patients always come first and I believe they know when the timing is right for joint replacement surgery. A properly chosen knee or hip replacement surgery can restore the quality of life that may have been missing for decades in a patient. Outside of work, I enjoy time with my wife and two young children and look forward to the day I am told I have spare time."

Patient Comments (6)

Possibly the worst experience I have ever had in a medical office! Dr. was obviously way behind in his appointment schedule. He came into the exam room an hour and half after my appointment time! Very short and curt. His very quick assessment was that he wasn't going to be able to help me. ...more

Dr Mauer does a good job of explaining the procedure and made me feel confident of the results being excellent. He took his time to answer all of my questions and then gave me some additional time to think of anything I might have forgotten to ask him about.

My appointment seemed rushed, I spent more time with his Physician Assist. He was more worried about how long a knee replacement would last me than the actual pain and discomfort level I was going through presently.

Dr Maurer is a great orthopedic surgeon. I had a left knee replacement in 2014. He did an awesome job of taking care of my knee. I credit him with restoring my ability to improve the quality of my life!
