Absolutely competent and compassionate orthopedic surgeon. I did one fusion, then a triple fusion and finally ankle replacement on left foot. He is known to be a specialist on the Infinity System for ankle replacement in San Diego. I can't wait to walk pain-free again. Thanks, Dr. Sitler!

Dr. Sitler is certified for Wright Medical Total Ankle Replacement procedures using both the Infinity product and the In-bone product. Other physicians I have researched have been certified for one or the other. He is easy to talk to and listens well. He also comes across as quietly confident.
