      Dr. Wirt is very direct and does not beat around the bush. He is not a touchy feeling doctor but his surgical skills are excellent and I have improved drastically over how I was before the surgery. I would highly recommend him.

      Dr Wirt is awesome! I had a large herniated disc with horrible sciatic pain. After my surgery I was immediately better and I was pain free within just a few days. Thank you so much for the great care!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
