My PCP referred me to Dr. Schildwatcher for knee problems. He ended up doing orthoscopic surgery on my left knee for a complex meniscus tear on both sides of my knee. Came through fine with no problems. He told me I would eventually need knee replacement for both knees but I would know when it was time. I STRONGLY RECOMMEND him.

Good "hip" guy

Ongoing experience with Dr. S from diagnosis through follow-up of a total hip replacement. He is a straight talker with the right blend of concern, humor and facts that I find comfortable. Good surgeon and good office and hospital team. Highly recommend

Dr. Schildwachter did both my knee surgeries and I have been pleased. He has been very caring and has helped me work through the recovery for surgery #2 since it was not as easy for me as #1 due to other health problems I have. I would recommend him.
