I have Seen Dr Mithoefer for several years. He has always been available for me and my family. He is a very busy surgeon and at times the wait time was more than 20 minutes. But I expect that when I see someone that is excellent at what he does and in high demand. He has operated on me twice and each recovery was amazing. He has truly earned my trust and admiration and I would recommend him to anyone.

I saw Dr. Mithoefer in 2009, and he diagnosed me with Shoulder Impingement Syndrome. He was abrupt and spent little time explaining my condition to me. He impatiently said that I could continue the hobby that caused it (dancing). One year later I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis in that shoulder, which is now causing me great pain and will worsen. I had to google it and teach myself. Had I understood any of these details of my condition, I would have made different choices.

My family and I would like to tell the words of gratitude to Dr. Kai Mithoefer. Thank you, Dr. Kai Mithoefer for the very attentive and highly professional attitude.
I came to DR. M with a very difficult injury and he took care of me with such skill and great support during my 6 months recovery. I am back to work and doing all my regular sports. I was worried I could never play again but Dr M and his team worked their magic! I am so grateful!!!
