He is a fantiastic doctor and surgeon. He really cares. I have know him for several years now as he had to replace my right knee and both shoulders. He has been so patient and kind to me. I think he is the best in the world. He spends time with you and really listens. You may have to wait because he is so busy but it is worth the wait to get the best.

Dr Schmidt performed Hip Replacement Surgery in December 2008. Since then I have resumed a normal life of working out, Cardio Kick Boxing, water and snow skiing, and walk 3 miles a day. Oh yes, cut my grass with a push mower. That is all the recommendation I can give.

He did my surgery in november, i fell in March, went to see him in April, told me i had just bruised the bone, went to see my family doctor, who sent me to see another ortho doc, who in turn sent me to have a nuclear medicine test, found out there is infection in the bone, after playing phone tag with the surgery scheduler i have to wait till july 5th for my surgery, in PAIN!!!, not acceptable.

Dr. Schmidt is a fantastic surgeon. I underwent a total knee replacement almost 8 months ago. The incision has healed and is very unremarkable...no horrible scar. I followed his instructions to the letter, especially the physical therapy recommendations. Should I require any other orthopedic procedure Dr. Todd Schmidt will be my choice of surgeon. I highly recommend him.
