Dr Althausen reassembled me after a very traumatic head on collision. In what I thought would be impossible he not only saved my life, but saved my leg as well. I'm almost fully healed know and I owe him my life. You would be lucky to have him as a doctor. Truly the best. If you read this Pete, my bone grew back finally!

Dr. Althausen presents with a calm and compassionate manner, which was quite comforting during an unexpected, traumatic lower extremity fracture. He explained everything thoroughly and answered all of my questions with the utmost patience. I have already recommended Dr. Althausen to others, and will continue to do so with the utmost confidence.

I consider myself very lucky to have Dr. Althausen perform the surgery when breaking my femur. The procedure went flawlessly and was not invasive. He instills confidence with his positive and uplifting energy which is greatly needed when you are going through a traumatic situation. I would highly recommend Dr. Althausen.
