Dr. Teitge is a profound and rare doctor. I recommend him without hesitation to anyone with knee pain! I have lived with pain since I can remember! He is leader & pioneer in this field. Where countless doctors misdiagnosed me or told me "nothing is wrong" he knew otherwise. He is not overly arrogant and does not guarantee 100% relief but he gave me hope and he did give me relief when no one else could!!! I have had 4 rotational osteotomies on each of my femurs and on my tibias/ fibulas. I'm on my way to a 'normal' life. I wish I could have found him when I was 5 (or 15) ... I could go on & on! -Don't hesitate if you're considering to see him.
Dr. Teitge, is probably the best orthopedic surgeon in the country, when it comes to patellofemoral disorders or lower limb malignments. I'm a patient of Dr. Teitge, and I must say he spends all the time you need and answers all your questions. He is the premiere orthoepdic/ sports medicine specialist in the state of michigan and does alot of high profile cases. He is worth the wait, yes his surgical waiting list is almost a year long, but again , he is worth the wait. He has great bedside manners. He has patients from all over the country to come see him. I'm proud to say, that Dr. Teitge is my surgeon.
Dr. Teitge is the most wonderful, skilled, and compassionate doctor I have ever encountered. I came to him feeling hopeless after another doctor had destroyed my knees with inappropriate surgery. Dr. Teitge is the only surgeon I would ever trust to operate on me. He's seriously brilliant and no other orthopedic surgeon compares! <3
