      I would definitely recommend Doctor Niemann for all your foot and ankle needs! Doctor Niemann is a straight shooter that puts complicated medical tterminology into layman's terms so anyone can understand him. He has a great bedside manner and explains your choices and the pro's and con's of every procedure. Thank you doctor and kudos for all you do and for having such nice and helpful staff as well.

      Just over one year I had surgery performed on my left foot. Dr Niemann's surgery corrected a problem I had suffered with for over 50 years!! The surgery has significantly improved my confidence going on long hikes on uneven terrain. Last month (Jan) I went hiking at Canyon-lands National Park. Two visits for a total of 18 miles. In the past I would be limping getting out of bed on the second day! Dr Niemann and his staff are very professional and courteous .

      Excellent. Appropriately confident & aggressive with treatment. Sometimes I needed him to slow down and explain things more clearky, which he did.

      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.

      Dr. Niemann says...

      Dr. Niemann is Board Certified in Rear-foot and Ankle Reconstruction. He treats all foot and ankle diseases, including fractures of the foot and ankle, flatfeet for pediatric and adults, bunions, and simple in-office procedures: in-grown toenails, warts etc. We specialize in the complex reconstruction of the foot and ankle. Dr. Niemann is one of the few Podiatrists trained to perform Total Ankle Replacement, and is trained on all current implants, Wright Medical In-Bone, Stryker STAR, Salto-Talaris, and Zimmer Trabecular Metal Implant. We treat patients of all ages and all foot types. Dr. Niemann has performed 500 surgical cases a year, with over 750 procedures on average the past 5 years. 

      I will help you understand the benefits of surgery vs non surgical options and review you foot pathology on a personal basis. 

      I have full surgical priveleges at most area hospitals, and the only Podiatrist on staff and Phoenix Children's.
