I would like to share how extremely pleased I am with Dr. Steinlauf's surgery. I had been struggling with a nasty bunion for over ten years and he corrected the condition this past summer. With his expertise, the surgery was successful, the recovery manageable (I couldn't drive for seven weeks) and now my foot is pain-free. Like him, the staff was always professional and friendly. Scheduling appointments was a breeze. I hope this referral encourages other people to have painful foot conditions.

After obtaining several other opinions, I went to see Dr Steinlauf, who was highly recommended by several friends. He gave me several surgical options for my Hallux Rigidus. I ultimately decided on the "gold standard" surgery for my age (49), which was fusing the large joint of my left big toe by inserting 2 screws. While the recovery was a bit painful, I was back on an eliptical at 9 weeks and, now over 2 years later, I am 97% pain free and completely satisfied with my results. He's awesome!

I'm very happy with my end results of my treatment, I just got discharge!!! He started treating me back in February 2017, I was in need of "ankle surgery" and with his recommendation, I went on with treatment and the final result surgery was no longer "required" Thanks Dr. Steinlauf, you are a "true professional" I will recommend you very highly!

Let me start by saying two years and 4 surgeons later came Dr. Steinlauf...I can't emphasize it enough...he must be one of the best surgeons specializing in foot & ankle, in the world. His expertise, professionalism are immediately recognized. After all, he gave me my life back. I can't recommend him enough. Thank you very much...Dr. Steinlauf and your team. I would like to also thank everyone in the medical field..

Dr. Steinlauf was a Godsend. I had suffered in pain for 2 years when a co-worker who had a similar issue recommended Dr. Steinlauf. I had been to 2 other Orthopedic Surgeons but never felt completely comfortable with allowing them to perform surgery on me. From my very first visit with Dr. Steinlauf I knew he was the one. He is also a teaching doctor and usually has another doctor with him, to whom he explains everything and why. I am 6 months post surgery and would choose him again if needed.

Dr. Steven Steinlauf did foot surgery on my left foot to repair and old injury that was preventing me from walking on the foot.He knew exactly what to do and I am extremely grateful for such an excellent result. I can walk perfectly now without pain. The surgery went extremely well and my healing was very successful thanks to Dr. Steinlauf's skilled surgery. He is meticulous about the details and his office medical staff are highly trained and knowledgable. Dr. Steinlauf truly improved my life!

Dr. Steinlauf is the BEST orthopedic surgeon out there. I have suffered with both of my feet for almost twenty years. Five different podiatrists perform surgery over the years, and each time, my pain got worse. Three years ago a physical therapist highly recommended Dr. Steinlauf. She told me how great he was. When I met Dr. Steinlauf, he was really nice and knowledgeable. He performed the correct surgery, and I have been pain free! I wish I knew of him before I had my other surgeries

I can’t thank Dr. Steinlauf enough for the amazing experience and care I received under him. I had ankle ligament instability issues where the ankle would just ‘give out’ all the time. After discussing the options, Dr. Steinlauf decided to perform surgery and use a relatively new technique that dramatically improved my recovery process. There is no other doctor I would ever trust for ankle or foot problems. He is truly an expert in the field and thoroughly managed the whole process.
in Pompano Beach, FL |
I had my open compound fracture of my leg in 2010, but I STILL think of Dr. Steinlauf every day I get out of bed and stand up. He treated my very difficult injury with amazing talent, and I cant ever forget it.
in Hollywood, FL |
It was a very pleasant experience. I had a previous surgery which was horrible and then I met him and he corrected my problem. He was very professional, friendly and did not discharged me until my foot was completely heeled.
