Care Philosophy

My name is Patrick Zietz and I am a partner in West Michigan Orthopaedics in Grand Rapids, MI. I completed my Orthopaedic Surgical Residency in Grand Rapids, MI, where I gained extensive experience in all types of Orthopaedic Surgery. Upon completing my residency I pursued a post-residency fellowship in Sports Medicine in Miami, FL. During this year I had the privilege of assisting in the orthopaedic care of the NBA's Miami Heat basketball team. In addition I learned advanced techniques for treatment of all types of sports-related injuries. Currently I see a mix of patients with both general orthopaedic and sports medicine related problems. My top priority is to reduce your pain and improve your function in order to return you to an active lifestyle. I strongly believe it is important to educate patients so that they can be involved in the treatment process. I will take as much time as is necessary at each appointment in order to meet these goals. I do not work with a PA which means you will see your doctor at every appointment. In addition, I have only one partner in my practice and this allows us to provide quality personalized care in a smaller office setting. I have had the pleasure of treating patients of all activity levels including professional athletes, weekend warriors, and those who are less active. I emphasize non-operative treatment when indicated and reserve surgery as a last resort. Most importantly, I will always put the patient's best interest above anything else. I look forward to working with you to treat your orthopaedic problems.

I have raved about Dr. Zietz to everyone. My knee surgery went very well and I've gained back my quality of life. The pre/post appointments were informative; he and his staff made everything very easy and comfortable.
in Lake Odessa, MI |
Dr. Zietz was strongly recommended by my former orthopedic surgeon who retired. I am very pleased with Dr. Zietz's professionalism, concern for my problem, and the ensuing care he has given me. I feel that he is giving me his utmost attention, and I totally trust his diagnosis and treatment.
in Greenville , MI |
Dr. Zietz and the entire office staff was very professional and courteous with any question or need that I had.
in Grand Rapids, MI |
I have to edit my original survey as Dr. Zietz did not do my wife's carpal tunnel surgery. He did do an excellent job on her knees.
in Niles, MI |
Dr. Zietz is not only talented, educated & experienced: he is a nice Dr. Nice does matter! Dr. Zietz takes the time to explain what he sees on your images -- he fixes it and thoroughly explains what he did to correct the problem!! He' s kind and caring and that goes a long way when you're in pain!
in Howard City, MI |
Dr. Zietz is a very experienced Orthopedic Dr. He took care of my husband a few years ago and even helped him to give up cigarettes. We just saw him once again for an ankle injury on myself and he was still as fabulous as ever. Very competent and caring.
in Lowell, MI |
Dr. Zietz is compassionate and looks out for the patients best interest. I highly recommend him for surgery and trust his decisions. The office staff is amazing and always friendly.
in Kentwood |
I was a first time patient referred by a friend. My friend had not had surgery since 2008. I told him I was referred by him. He knew and remember he and his wife and surgery was done in 2008 and thanked me for letting him know. The resident and Dr. Zietz were outstanding. I canceled another appt recommend by my primary physician to go to him via a friend. I am blessed. He is a kind and very humble man. His staff is outstanding. I wish I could have given more than 5.
in Otsego, MI |
I would highly recommend Dr Patrick Zietz. Very caring - did an awesome job fixing my mess in my shoulder. Takes time to explain so I could understand, at the beginning I am the type just fix it spare the details.... Afterwards, okay now tell me all about... Then he had to tell me again... I took a list of questions to my appointment and he answers them. Great bedside manner and very talented!!! I am so glad we chose him....
in Caledonia, MI |
He has excellent technical skills, but terrible inter personal skills. I would recommend you find a doctor, somewhere else.
