Confidence matters. Dr. Belthur knows what is best, makes sound recommendations, and is genuinely concerned with how he can help my child. He did a fantastic job on my daughters recent Reconstructive Surgery, and she is walking pain free for the first time in her life.

Very pleased with the results . My son had a terrible tibial fracture . Dr. was reassuring and told us what to expect and did what needed to be done . He certainly knows what he is doing .

Worst Dr I have ever been to and worst bed side manners! He looked at my son for a few steps and said he was fine. I told him he was the first dr to ever say that and I live with him every day and I know he is not "fine". He said I didn't have a degree and he is the specialist and the other drs were not. He kept putting his degree above everyone else. He wouldnt pull up any past medical reports or xrays, he said the emergency room didnt know what they were talking about. Rudest Dr I have ever met and a huge waste of time! I will be getting a 2nd opinion. He made us feel like we were a big waste of his time! I couldnt even finish a sentence without him interupting me. He definitely needs to come back down from his high horse and stop acting like he is better than everyone out their and stop working with children. This dr is not a good representation of PCH and I am completely surprised he is working there and especially with children.

Absolutely fantastic! Doctor Belthur treated our son following an unfortunate quad accident. He repaired a compound fracture in his right leg and broken left ankle. He repaired the right leg without needing further care. The left ankle developed a bone infection from the screws and he operated and made sure that no infection returned. Doctor Belthur is the best.

Our 9 year old daughter, Lexi, has left side hemiplegia which resulted in severe posturing of her left foot ankle. This combined with extremely tight tendons made walking and even bracing her almost impossible. She was primarily a wheelchair user by the time she was 8. We met with 2 different orthopedic surgeons and felt most comfortable with Dr. Belthur. Nervously, we proceeded with his recommended procedures and we are so happy that we did. Her mobility was restored! He is a gifted doctor!!

Dr Belthur has been great treating our sons bilateral clubfoot. He’s a very smart physician and knows the right protocols for treatment. We have felt like our child has been in very good hands under the direction of his care.

My son had two extensive surgeries with Dr. Belthur in February and March of 2018, We chose him for his depth of knowledge in our son’s case and his ability to offer us the confidence we needed in making difficult decisions. It’s the expertise that matters and not so much the bedside manner. This is a surgeon that easily takes calls from pediatricians to offer post operative care when something unexpected occurs. He stays involved through it all.

I'm giving a one star because I can't leave a review without choosing a star. I wish it was possible to give anything less I would've done so when I consider the type of horrible service we received from Dr Belthur. He is totaling lacking in empathy and communication skills. If you want a Dr who would treat you with respect and empathy please choose another doctor. He is severely lacking in bedside manners.

Dr. Belthur is obviously well versed on his topic and his expertise is apparent. Where we have struggled is with his patient approach. He talks very quickly and if you don't understand he acts annoyed. He jumps to saying that surgery should be done but we struggled with understanding why and what the options were. At Phoenix Children's he was alone but in Flagstaff he was accompanied by a case worker who helped enormously with facilitating conversation and slowing down the drs pace and attitude

We were in Phoenix for spring break and our 9 year old daughter severely broke her arm. Dr Belthur reassured us, our daughter and did an amazing job in completing the procedure.
