Dr. Carter right away made me feel comfortable talking to him. I felt he had an intense interest in helping me find out the cause of my pain. I definitely would recommend him to my friends in need of an honest opinion of their problem and how to treat it. What a nice doctor!

Dr Carter is the best. The entire staff is personable, informative, and caring. Five years out from surgery and my hip is perfect! Will not go to any other orthopedic dr. Worth the almost 2 hour drive.

I had My left hip replaced on January 27, 2020. Dr. Carter did an excellent job of preparing me for the surgery, outcome and recovery. I maintained a rigid schedule of doing what I was told to do and 14 weeks later was basically on my normal routine of working out on my Elliptical and weight lifting. I was back up to 260 pound squats heading to my normal 320. I can't say enough good about the outcome. I am pain free in my left hip which has been over 2 years. I am blessed and excited to continue the process of healing and getting back to an active life without pain. My right hip will need attention in the next couple of years and I will not hesitate to see Dr. Carter this time instead of suffering through the pain as I did before. I couldn't even walk the beach in Aruba on vacation in January of 2020. I will now be able to enjoy my blessed life without the unbearable pain. I am so thankful and grateful for meeting Dr. Carter. I would recommend Dr. Carter without hesitation.

Dr. Carter and his team are outstanding! The surgery and outcome were better than I ever expected. Arrived at 7, surgery at 9 and eating Rally's burger at 1. Best of all pain was gone.

Dr. Carter changed my life, both physically and mentally. Before my hip replacement I had low energy, was discouraged and scared. My only regret with the procedure was waiting so long. Dr. Cater, and his staff, made me feel confident that this was the best choice and I would feel better afterwards; they were so very right! I know everyone is different, but I followed post-surgery instructions and after 6 weeks I forgot I had a replacement; back to living life (pain free). Thank you Dr. Carter and his knowledgeable and friendly staff at Midwest Joint Replacement!!

Dr. Carter eliminated my hip pain with an anterior total hip replacement. Not only is he a great surgeon, his patient rapport is excellent -- professional, personable and caring, with a pleasant, positive confidence. I'd definitely return if I ever needed joint surgery, and highly recommend him to your consideration.

Dr. Carter performed my total hip replacement and after a month was almost completely back. I know everybody is different but the procedure was different than my 1st hip replacement and I was able to play golf after a month. I will not go anywhere else. This Center has all the best staff. Outstanding customer service for me.

Dr. Carter is very caring and does not make you feel like a number. He wants to listen and is interested to what the patient has to say. This can be a very scary procedure when doing the research on the surgery. Dr. Carter puts you at ease and makes you feel relaxed before going into the surgery. He and his staff make you feel like you are his only patient and this helps you in your recovery.

I have had the best experience with Dr. Carter and the Midwest Center for Joint Replacement! I truly never imagined that I could regain my mobility and get my life back. I have missed so much with my family over the past five years dealing with pain. Just walking was a major struggle, and forget getting down on the floor to play with my grandchildren! Now I can once again participate in my life, and share moments with my babies. My experience was life changing and I am so grateful!

I couldn't be happier with the care I received from Dr. Carter and his office staff. Dr. Carter was informative and he takes the time to address any questions you might have. He even called the night before my surgery to see if I had any questions or concerns. That was a first. He does the anterior approach for hip replacements from which a faster recovery is possible. I have had 5 joint replacements and previously I had never had a surgeon like Dr. Carter. I would highly recommend him.

Dr Carter did a wonderful job with my hip surgery. Also very personable. In a month I was driving again. I have no limp at all. When it's time, he will definitely do my other hip. I even got a xray picture of my new hip! Amazing what can be done today.

My experience with Dr.Carter was amazing. He was the seventh ortho I had seen for my hip. I am young and have a high BMI. But, Dr.Carter took on my case anyway. Everyone in the office is very friendly, knowledgeable and wonderful to work with. I have told everyone I can to come to MCJR and see Dr Carter, Adam, Katie and the rest of the team. Truly, the treatment that my family and I have received there is certainly appreciated. I couldn’t say enough good things about them. God Bless

Dr. Carter replaced my left hip on May 26, 2017 and I have had no problems with the procedure. If I were to have another hip replaced, Dr. Carter would be my surgeon. I highly recommend this physician.
