Incredible surgeon, Dr. Githens saved my husbands foot when another hospital wouldn't. Great bedside manner, we always felt we could ask as many questions as we wanted whether after surgery or during follow-up visits. Amazing post care: with 6 total surgeries, a pulmonary embolism, and bone infection, Dr. Githens was involved in all parts of the rehabilitation and healing
