Care Philosophy

I strive to help my patients achieve greater mobility, independence, and relief from pain through treatment of arthritis and other painful conditions affecting the hip and knee joints. Hip and knee replacements can represent a miracle of modern medicine for many patients and I feel fortunate that I am able to provide these operations to my patients and to have performed these procedures over 3,000 times to this point in my practice.

Excellent visit, Dr Matthes is the best, always has taken good care of me. Certainly one of the most caring Dr. I have been to.
in Grinnell, IA |
I've been seeing Dr. Matthes for about 10 years, first for an arthritic knee and now for a painful hip. He doesn't rush to surgery, but first explores other treatments. He did a total knee replacement for me after a couple of years of cortisone shots. I was barely able to walk before the surgery; it's a difficult one to recover from, but I can now walk, swim, bike, and do yoga. He was able to identify several problems causing pain in the hip area. He's a good listener and explains things well.
