    I have known Mr Weitzel for many years since our training days. He is highly regarded in his field and offers his patients many unique procedures including ankle replacements. He has extensive experience in lower limb surgery but also takes a very measured approach to exhausting conservative options before considering surgery. I highly recommend Stefan as an excellent surgeon and as a doctor who very much takes care of his patients.
