Dr Grindel did an excellent job with my surgery (much better than expected outcome). He was compassionate, thorough and honest. Really appreciate his skill and candor. I would highly recommend him and the Ortho clinic.

I have seen Dr. Grindel for many years for situations concerning upper body needs. He is the only upper body surgeon I will see in the state on Wisconsin because of his expertise. He and his staff have skills that I feel can not be equaled in the state. I have always been treated with great respect by all members of his team. His skills go beyond question. Years ago he replaced both my shoulders. The result has been beyond what was expected. I have range of motion that is greater than anyone expected, including Dr. Grindel. I am grateful that he is an instructor so medical students are able to learn from him.

Since Dr Grindel performed successful surgery on me in 2011 for two separate serious injuries, I was very happy he was available to treat me & my current injury. I feel very fortunate for the excellent physicians & care I have received at Froedtert & MCW.

Dr. Grindel has an amazing team. They work wonderful together and got me through rotator cuff surgeries on both shoulders the last two years. I would, and have, recommend Dr. Grindel and his team to anyone who needs shoulder surgery.

Seemed in a rush and not as concerned as he has been in the past.

I just think the doctor is extremely knowledgeable and will be able to fix my injury without a doubt. His staff seemed to all be on board and worked extremely well as a team. My wife and I were impressed. That's why we come to froedtert , to be treated by the best. We both have been patients there and have always have had a positive experience. We haven't always received the answers we were hoping for, but it was not for the lack of trying! We're comfortable with froedtert
