I broke my ankle ice skating & it was one of the worst experiences of my life. I hate needles let alone surgeries but Dr. Sittler with an infectioues confidence explained my only option, surgery, that I was convinced to do it. He did an awesome work as he described to me he would do and his work is truly a piece of art. You cannot even notice the stitches as he has done a very clean job. You should be lucky to have Dr. Sittler do your surgery. I can walk, run & swim again just like before.

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!

Hurt my knee being clumsy, waited forever for a referral to Dr.Sitler. Hmo hot mess!Once I was able to get in, He was able to schedule the surgery to repair my ACL within days of seeing me. He did a great job! I got married and was able to walk down the isle without a walker! He is a sweet man, who takes care of business! 2more months of rehab will be good as new! Thank goodness I found him!

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.
