I enjoy getting to know my patients and taking the time to listen to their needs. Every injury is different, as is every patient, so it takes an individualized approach in orthopedics to help the patient understand their diagnosis and treatment plan. I enjoy being part of the community and getting involved with the local athletes and teams.

About

I became interested in orthopedics after my own knee surgeries. I underwent reconstructive surgery on both of my knees during my freshman year in college while playing basketball. I returned to play for Marquette University after a year of rehab on both knees. I was able to play three more years and was fortunate enough to play on the first Marquette women’s basketball team to make the NCAA tournament. It gave me first-hand experience being a patient rehabilitating from injury. That experience has been priceless in understanding what my patients go through before, during and after surgery. I decided to go into orthopedics during medical school and did a specialized year of arthroscopic knee and shoulder surgery. I have been active in the development of the sports medicine program in West Bend since I began my practice there in 2004.

Dr. Maskala is phenomenal. The respect and compassion she has for her patients is admirable. She has done surgery on both of my parents, myself and a few of my friends. Anytime someone asks my advice regarding an orthopedic surgeon. The only name I will ever give is Dr. Maskala. My family has and will follow Dr. Maskala every where she goes. She is definitely one in a million. Rating her a 10 is an understatement.

Dr. Maskala and her RN were very helpful during my visit. She provides a wealth of knowledge to my particular case. I'm grateful she is available and accessible. I was initially concerned that I wouldn't be able to get in to see Dr. Maskala. On my initial inquiry to schedule the appointment, she didn't share or have the same sense of urgency to get in. I was fortunate to go to her alternate site (Mequon) when a canceled appointment opened up my opportunity. Overall, however, Dr. Maskala and her staff, are the BEST! Froedert should feel especially fortunate to have her on their staff. Thank you.

Dr. Maskala listened to my concerns regarding my knee and my desire to get back to working out and running as soon as possible. She came up with a plan that makes me feel confident in her as a Dr. I've recommended her to friends and family. There's a reason she is so hard to get into- because she is simply the best!
