      I broke my wrist in two places...a very nasty break that required a permanent titanium plate. I could not have asked for a better qualified surgeon. Dr Eichten's expertise, pre and post operative care allowed me to regain full control of my wrist without any complications. He is a valuable asset to the community.
      in Bonita Springs, FL |
      Under Dr. Eichten's care I was able to regain full use of my right arm after I broke it in three places. It's so refreshing to find a Dr. that is both skillful and personable. He forced me to revise my thinking--I was beginning to believe that all the really good doctors had retired!!

      in Fort Myers, FL |
      Getting my two knees replaced back to back it has been the hardest thing I've ever done. Dr.Eicthen and assistant Amy were just wonderful, always available to listen, answer questions and concerns, both before and after surgery. I felt during the whole process that I couldn't had been in better hands, I'm so very grateful!
      in Fort Myers Beach, FL |
      He made us feel very comfortable and confident. He visited me after surgery and assured me everything was OK.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Eichten says...

      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.
