Dr. Brotherton did for me what a podiatrist told me was impossible. A podiatrist had amputated a hammertoe and effectively disabled me for life. Every step was like I was stepping on a nail. In just one visit, Br. Brotherton had assessed the damage done and had me being fitted for orthotics before I left. And, he arranged physical therapy. About a week later, I received my custom made orthotics and have walked with no pain whatsoever, since that morning. I recommend Dr. Stephen Brotherton!!!!

If I could go back and change my decision to come to this doctor, I would. Wait 1 hr to see him and then he spends less than 5 minutes with you and hardly explains anything. When I had to have my ACL replaced, I had no idea that there were different types of grafts (he just picked one) or that I should have been going to physical therapy preop. He never stressed the importance of extension and even said it wasnt necessary to get back to my "normal" ROM. Now I have to get a second surgery.

My 80+ year old mother had knee & hip surgery by Brotherton. A few years later the knee became infected. Fortunately another doctor came to her rescue & replaced the infected knee device. Since Brotherton's hip surgery years ago she has walked with a very, very painful limp as a result of recently diagnosis by another ddoctor that legs length varied. Dr. Brotherton dismissed her claims of inconsistent leg lengths. He angrily contended she has scoliosis. Another doctor found no scoliosis.

Dr. Brotherton has seen me, my mother, my daughter and my mother-in-law. Every surgery he has performed on our family has had great success. He may not have the best bedside manners, but when the time counts, he delivers. No surgery problems pre or post-op care. After my last knee surgery, he stood-up for me. He let the CRNA and Anesthesiologist know that they screwed-up. They were told to intubate me with Fibreoptic assistance. They didn't and a code blue was called. They had a hard time intuba
