Dr Coetzee is a fantastic surgeon. I had an ankle replacement 3 years ago and it changed my life! Pain free in my right ankle. Regained my ability to walk, excercise and lead a normal life without pain and loss of motion.

Dr. C is amazing. He listens to your issue(s) then explains the plan of attack to get you back healthy. He is very passionate and direct which is what I want from a doctor.

I have been meaning to write a testimonial regarding Dr. Coetzee ever since he did surgery on my ankle. He is absolutely the best doctor I have ever had in my life. By the time I saw him, 75% of the bone was dead in my ankle from a fracture.. With other doctors my prognosis was grim. I may even lose my foot. Dr. Coetzee fixed me up and I am walking, enjoying life and no pain. As far as I am concerned he saved my life. There is nobody like him. I'd give him 10 stars if I could!!

I received an ankle fusion from Dr. Coetzee. I initially was not thrilled by his recommendation to have an angle fusion because I have heard so many terrible things about them, but after discussing the treatment plan with him, I had complete trust in him. This was my 5th surgery (4 from previous surgeons) and I am now 12 weeks post-op and am amazed by the result so far! I no longer have the shooting pain that I used have when walking! He is AMAZING and I am so grateful he did my surgery!!

I exploded my heel into more that 7 pieces and pushed the pieces an inch and a half up into my ankle in a horrible rock climbing accident. Before i found Dr. Coatzee i was told by three separate Doctors the id never walk another day in my life without a cane. I wish i had pages to explain the level of professionalism n carei received from this man and how much he helped put my mind at ease! All i can say is this man is my hero and saved my life!!!! Because of him i have every bit of my life back
