Experience Matters

Like anything else in life, practice makes perfect, and those physicians who specialize in a specific niche —will tend to become more proficient than another surgeon who treats everything. Simply put, a hip and knee joint replacement specialist will likely do over a hundred more joint replacement surgeries in a given year than another generalist orthopedic surgeon. In addition to being Board Certified in orthopedic surgery, Dr. Latteier is fellowship-trained in joint replacement. Fellowship training is the highest level of medical education possible in the United States.

What Patients are saying...
Dr. Latteier was professional, compassionate, and informative. He is obviously a very skilled surgeon. I had hip replacement using the anterior approach, and my recovery time has been shorter than I had anticipated. When it comes time to have my other hip done, Dr. Latteier will be my first choice. I recommend him highly!!
