Had been dealing with multiple problems in one foot for many years, which had gotten to the point of pain with every step and severely limiting my physical and outdoor activities. Dr. Haytmanek and his team offered a range of treatment options that have made a huge difference and I'm now walking, hiking, and skiing with no pain, much sooner than I thought possible. Surgery and recovery went perfectly with zero issues or problems. I have complete confidence in the care provided by Haytmanek and his team.

Dr. Haytmanek is an exceptional doctor. My foot surgery was a great success with almost no pain. I was able to get around in my heel weight bearing boot from day one. He and his staff are compassionate, professional, efficient and extremely friendly. I highly recommend Dr. Haytmanek for foot and ankle surgeries.

I was lucky to have Dr. Haytmanek working the ER the day I broke both legs skiing. He put me back together so well, I am now walking after 10 weeks. In fact I've been told my legs are a work of metal art sculpture.

I was diagnosed with a ruptured Achilles Tendon. Dr. Craig Haytmanek has proven his understanding and method of AT repair and he and his team performed the surgey; it is 6 weeks post surgery the outcome to date has been just what he had said it would be, furthermore my recover has been very quick and has been without any adverse effect. He is very straightforward, and has taken time to diligently answer all my questions and concerns. Dr. Haytmanek and his team have proven to be among the very best.

Dr. Haytmanek is a knowledgeable surgeon with exceptional bedside manner. Cares very much about his patients. He did a bone graft on my ankle in 2016. Miss him practicing in Idaho.

Dr. Haytmanek, the Steadman Clinic team and the hospital in-patient staff were all EXCEPTIONALLY GREAT during pre- and post-op care for my ankle replacement surgery. Every single person was professional, knowledgeable and caring. The ONLY place in the US to have ankle replacement surgery!!!

After a fusion on my foot, Dr. Haytmanek and his team realized one of my dreams and goals to be back to skiing and biking.

I recently underwent ankle surgery with Dr. Haytmanek. I am a high level recreational athlete. I am now approaching 12 weeks post surgery and returning to my sport of running. I could not be more impressed with Dr. Haytmanek and his entire team! He and his team are invested in your recovery each step of the way from consult thru full recovery back to sport. With his help, I am returning even stronger to the sport I love. I will be forever grateful to have been under Dr. Haytmanek's care.
