Dr. Eichten's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Eichten "I grew up in Minnesota and graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of St. Thomas in 2001 with a degree in Biology. I then attended Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences where I graduated with a 4.0 GPA and earned the Gold Stethoscope Award for finishing first in my medical school class. I completed my orthopedic surgery residency through Ohio University at Grandview Medical Center in Dayton, OH. After residency I spent an additional year of fellowship training in joint replacement surgery of the hip and knee. Fellowship trained surgeons have been proven to improve patient outcomes and reduce complication rates. During my fellowship, I performed over 500 cases including minimally invasive techniques, anterior total hip arthroplasty, partial knee replacement and complex revision surgeries. "

Dr. Eichten was very professional, knowledgable and personable. He took the appropriate amount of time to provide details of the break and make sure all questions were answered. He was very patient and kind. (Responding on behalf of my 92 year-young Mom who broke her arm/wrist.)
