Dr. Nuelle was straightforward and to the point. Didnt have the “holier than thou” ego that seems far too common with younger orthos. Would recommend.

I read a news article about robotic full knee replacement surgery performed by Dr Clayton Nuelle. It sounded wonderful so I contacted his office and arranged for him to do my right knee. Almost 3 weeks out, am doing fine even though pain meds are severely restricted and someone forgot to get physical therapy started until day 9 of my recovery. I am so confident that this is the best situation that we have set a date for my other knee for the same surgery. Thank-you Dr Nuelle.

Dr. Nuelle was very thorough in the examination of my shoulder pain. After x-rays and physical tests, he determined that I suffer from bursitis and osteoarthritis. Without over diagnosing my condition, he offered conservative treatments and concluded that no surgical intervention was required. I received a steroid shot and was set up with physical therapy. He was very polite, professional and caring. He explained my condition to me and took time to read an MRI report of my shoulder that I provided him from 2 years ago. My condition had improved in the past but was aggravated after I was assaulted on July 18, 2020. I appreciate his concern for my pain and the shot provided me much relief. He is intelligent and experienced as demonstrated by his interpretation of my injury from x-rays and tests. I felt relieved when I left his office. Dr. Nuelle and his staff are personable, friendly, helpful and respectful. All safety precautions are in place for Covid-19. My wait time was 5 minutes.

Dr. Nuelle performed my knee replacement. He explained everything thoroughly, was extremely patient (I had LOTS of questions) and was down-to-earth. He has a great reputation (and now I understand why), is on point, caring, knowledgeable, and has a great bedside manner. My surgery went extremely well! I highly recommend Dr. Nuelle ??

I had a torn my ACL, 1 meniscus from the bone, the 2nd meniscus was torn and some torn tendons. Dr. Nuelle did the surgery to repair my right knee. He put a new ACL in reattached one meniscus and repaired the other. He did a great job and was very concerned about my recovery. I would highly recommend him and his office. They all did an excellent job through the whole process. They all were very professional and caring.

I've seen Dr. Nuelle for well over 3 years. He tried everything short of knee surgery. When it came time he told me let's try this and see if we can put off a total knee replacement for a few years. So far so good.

Dr. Nuelle was recommended to me as a second opinion about knee surgery. Although he concurred that knee surgery was definitely needed, he suggested I was a candidate for partial knee replacement, rather than one total knee replacement at a time. He took his time, explaining the procedure’s pros and cons, answered all my questions, and encouraged more questions. I chose him and am 2 months out having 2 (bilateral) partial knee replacements. At this point extremely satisfied with my surgeon, his staff, on-going recovery and progress!
