Self-verified patient of Dr. Steven B Brotzman - Posted on February 19th, 2020
If you need lower extremities worked on this is the only surgeon I would go to! Extremely well educated, and excellent bedside mannered. His office staff and assistant in surgeon are top notch not only is he awesome but he surrounds himself with excellence to get the best optimal outcomes! I give him 10 stars if I could!
Great experiences all the time!

I've seen Dr.Brotzman for 15 years. He has taken care of three knee surgeries and my plantar fasciitis. An ACL replacement, two meniscus repairs and PRP on my heal and knees. Will recommend him to anyone who wants great results. I've followed his Rx and suggestions and they have all worked.
Not a FootbSurgeon

I went to Brotzman on a recommendation. I am sorry! Dr Brotzman performed bunion surgery. When the bandages came off I told him it was as twisted as it had been. I was told to wait for swelling to go down. At following visit he agreed it did not look like it should. He said he would have to do it again. He actually told me when I asked who was going to pay for the second, that I had Medicare so I shouldn’t worry. After the second surgery, my foot into which he put several pins, looked as it did after the first surgery. He admitted it didn’t turn out the way he wanted and handed me a paper with a name written on it and said “ this is the man we send our feet to”. I’ve endured a painful foot and can’t wear many shoes because of discomfort. Now, one of the many pins Dr Brotzman put in my toe is starting to stick out of my toe. The second toe is unmovable and there is a large bump on the ball of my foot under it. It is very painful and it has forced me to arrange another surgery. I had bunion surgery in El Paso many years ago. That foot is pretty and painless—only ONE surgery—-easy peasy. Dr Brotzman proudly stated that when he had lectured in Europe he was asked if Podiatrist actually do surgery in the US. I should have gone to one.—— If this man refers feet to the person whose name was on that paper, why did he attempt mine?????? I was stupid to allow this Dr. to PRACTICE on me the second time. I saw another review about a botched bunion surgery on this site—-someone needs to stop Dr Brotzman from working on feet.
Not in my case

Unfortunately I went on recommendation to Dr. Brotzman and he mangled my foot forever. In his office and in the surgery report he said he performed bunion surgery but he did not. I had to have another surgeon do it about 8 months afterwards and my foot had never healed from his surgery. The toe next to it is so deformed from his lack of knowledge of this type of surgery, that another very good surgeon could barely fix what he had performed so badly. I don't believe Dr. Brotzman is an honest or capable surgeon.

I don't know what happened in my case but I felt like I had to write this review. I had a great deal of pain from a condition called Mortons Toe and I also have a bunion and arthritis on my big toe and both are on the same foot. I went to Dr. Brotzman because he was highly rated and I felt very confident going into surgery. My recovery went well and I stayed off my foot as prescribed and then went into his rehab clinic for several weeks. I had several appointments with Dr. Brotzman after that because I wasn't getting better and the pain was really unbearable. Now 9 months after surgery the pain is so much worse than it was before I had surgery. I seeked out a foot specialist who only performs surgery on feet because I had no where else to turn. Dr. Brotzman's physical therapist couldn't figure out why my second and longer toe was so immobile and asked if he put a plate of some sort in there because it wouldn't bend forward or backward and the pain continued to get worse, especially as I continued to do the exercises from my physical therapy. One thing I could never do was rise up on my toes, which was one of the exercises they did in physical therapy, it made me physically sick to do so. The surgery for Mortons Toe or neuroma is to, in Layman's Terms, shorten the toe. I found out from my now foot specialist, that it wasn't just trimmed a little too far back but was way far back which affected that joint and is why my toe is so stiff. In doing so my toe also rotated in towards my 3rd toe to the point that the bone underneath that toe was protruding so that I walk on it which explains why I'm having so much pain. Now that toe overlaps my third toe, which is also painful, and it never did that before Dr. Brotzman performed surgery. Dr. Brotzman did surgery on my big toe bunion to remove the bunion and clean out the arthritis. I continued to tell Dr. Brotzman that it felt like I still had arthritis and asked him if he removed the bunion, because it looked the same as it did before surgery. My recent new surgeon now told me that when he goes back in for my corrective surgery, that he has to remove the bunion and clean out the arthritis. So, apparently it either wasn't done or wasn't done correctly. We also have to remove a really large screw that Dr. Brotzman put in my big toe that has moved so much that I'm now walking on that and the nerve pain is pretty unbearable. I don't know what happened in these surgeries with Dr. Brotzman, but I would think twice before having foot surgery here. He does have a great staff and a beautiful facility. His specialties must be in other areas because he's gotten such great reviews from other patients but as for toe surgery, I wouldn't go.

Dr. Brotzman is amazing. After having one of the worst experiences of my life with another orthopedic doctor, I made an appt with Dr. Brotzman and realized I had put up with the other doctor for way too long. Dr. B takes his time with his patients in order to answer questions and explain things, which I appreciate greatly, even if it does mean he's typically running behind schedule. So, if punctuality is super important to you, this may not be the place for you, but if you want extraordinary care and are willing to wait, I can't recommend him enough.
