I strongly believe it is my job to give patients all the information they need to make the best decision for themselves. I emphasize patient education in all aspects of care and work with each patient individually. My goal is to quickly get patients started on the best treatment plan that will return them to their previous level of function.

I cannot express how grateful I am to Dr. Vetter and her team. Dr. Vetter is kind, compassionate, and caring. She is invested in your care, truly listens, and really wants to see your life improve, not just fix what is broken. I couldn't ask for more. She went out of her way to refer me on when she did not see satisfactory results. MCW is very fortunate to have this very gifted surgeon on their team. Yours truly, a very happy patient.
Very informative on the how and why this service is needed
Very friendly, efficient, and accommodating!
Dr Vetter provided a detailed diagnosis and discussed treatment options with me. She clearly is a top notch doc and I feel fortunate to have been her patient. I trust her knowledge & judgement. The very very best!
Wouldn't want to have to see anyone else for my orthopedic needs.
Very good experience.
I have been a patient of Dr Vetter for the past 9 months. Every time I have had an appointment, it has been the most pleasant I've ever had. Communication with her, and her team, was top notch. If it weren't for the time off work, and pain, I'd consider tearing my other ACL to continue working with her.
Dr. Vetter is the Best! I was was so fortunate to have one of the Best surgeons care for me. I had a very serious knee injury and she always was professional and provided up to date information and care. She and her team are amazing, I have and will continue to recommend her and her team for care.
It's been a long time since I met with a Doctor who was as caring as Dr. Vetter! She is truly amazing!!
Excellent visit.
