Excellent in every way! My surgery was 6 weeks ago and I am walking without a limp or a cane -- and I was told several years ago that I was too old for a knee replacement. Dr. Schutte and his entire staff are incredibly supportive, efficient, and friendly. They even managed to complete my x-ray and exam when I showed up on the wrong day for my appointment -- and no one (from the receptionist to the X-ray tech to Dr. Schutte) ever indicated that my mistake inconvenienced them in the least.

Dr. Schutte corrected a knee that had been poorly replaced last year. The results have been excellent. He consulted with me prior to surgery, and then his assistants stayed with me as long as I needed to fully understand the medical process. They are knowledgeable and very dedicated women, and I totally trusted all would go well. A few of the office staff were not pleasant or courteous. There were many pages of forms with repetitive questions to be filled in. It took well over 1/2 hour.

I had my left hip replaced by Dr. Schutte and his team. The Comprehensive Joint Program at East Cooper Medical Center is the best program in the country. The staff at Charleston Institute for Advanced Orthopedics is the best. I felt safe and well cared for throughout the entire process, even through the follow up visits. I highly recommend Dr. Schutte! And yes, I have sent several of my neighbors to him!

Dr Schutte replaced my right knee back on January 19th, The Surgery went smooth. Rehab was tough but I heard thats how it is. 3 months out feeling great with awesome range of motion. I would strongly recommend Dr. Schutte for Knee Replacement Surgery.

First visit and did not see doctor hence my poor reviews about time spent etc. Only met with his PA who well competent it seemed recommended a knee replacement surgery. That should have been confirmed by the physician at minimum! Gave me the impression of a chop shop where doc too busy in surgery to bother with first time patients. Maybe my age at 60+ was factor? Not saying diagnosis was wrong but experience made me feel ignored and wondering if first time I would see the Dr was in surgery.

Just want to thank Dr. Schutti for the amazing operation he performed on my shoulder. I have not had the pain that I once had and him and his entire staff were wonderful in every way. Special thanks go to Amy Tammy, Robin and Lorrie of the diabtic nurse dept. They were wonderful and were very supportive of my fears and concerns. I can not recommend Dr. Schutti enough . He has an awesome personality and bedside manor and I certainly will recommend him to my friends in the future.

I went to see Dr Schutte because I'd had pain for more than a year and MRI's and other doctors had not been able to help or explain what was wrong. I thought my active days were over. His team was able to show me on x-rays and explain what was causing the pain. As a group, they helped arrange a surgery and hospital date within two weeks. They took the time to explain what was going to happen and what I needed to do to make a full recovery. Now I sleep all night and do what I want. Thanks!

Dr Schutte not only does excellent surgery, but has a wonderful bedside manner.
in Andrews, SC |
Dr. Schutte has replaced both of my knees, first one in 2012 while he was still at MUSC, and the second in January of this year. I cannot say enough about how pleased I am with both procedures. I did a lot of research, especially talking to nurses, therapists, etc. that knew of his work. Comments like, When my mom needs a replacement, he's the one we're using. His team is also excellent and they all work together seamlessly, I would not use anyone else, we're so blessed to have him near!

I can't say enough good things about my hip replacement surgery with Dr Schulte and East Cooper Medical Center. I had the other side done around three years ago by a different surgeon an a downtown Charleston hospital and this time I think it was a much easier experience for me.
in Columbia, SC |
My. experience with Dr. Schutte and his team was amazing. In all of my years navigating through the maze of medical care, particularly orthopedic practices, I have never encountered a more professionally organized and efficiently run practice. My initial appt., preop. appt, and surgery date were all scheduled quickly and I was totally satisfied with every aspect. The most important outcome, however, is the surgical one. And mine is just short of a miracle! Skilled Dr. and fabulous team! Kudos
in North Charleston, SC |
Dr Schutte is outstanding! He was very informative, personable, & caring in the office visit prior to my husband's hip replacement yesterday. That same approach was evident both before and after surgery while my husband stayed in East Cooper Hospital overnight. The pre and post surgery training classes were extremely informative too! He even prayed over my husband before surgery. ?? Highly recommend Dr Schutte!
in Myrtle Beach, SC |
I have had two total knee replacements, Jan. 4th and Feb. 9th. I am very pleased with the results. Dr. Schutte made me feel confident that he could help me.
in Isle of Palms, SC |
Highly knowledgeable and experienced. I consider him an expert in hip replacement.
in Isle of palms, SC |
It is nice to feel completely confident with your doctor's abilities. He did a great job on my surgery and has always been so attentive and thorough.
in Kershaw, SC |
Wonderful! So knowledgeable and self-assuring. Took time to discuss condition and what could be done!! I've already told friends they should make the lengthy trip to Mt. Pleasant to see him!,
in Manning, SC |
very good doctor. appointment times are not on schedule. doctor seems to be too busy to spend adequate time with patient. I was told to be at hospital @ 6:30 am for 8:00am surgery. Surgery did not happen until around 11:00am, If I had known that, I would not have wasted money on renting motel. I still think Dr. Schutte is a very good & qualified doctor.
