  • Well after 8 Back surgeries by another clinic in the Waukesha area I met with Doctor Johnson. First of all, his bedside manner is fantastic. The research and consulting he did with other Doctors about my back issues were fabulous. Doctor explained to my wife Pam & I what would take place and exactly what he was going to do to elevate my pain. He did the operation which including cleaning up what another Doctor had done again from Waukesha. So, Doctor Johnson did stem Cell on me. What a difference in my life able to walk, cut grass ride a bike even lost 55 LBS pounds. I have told many people about Doctor Johnson he is one of the Best. The Whole team at Ortho Associates are all good. Doctor Johnson is one of the BEST. God Bless

  • I am a physician and have discovered that it is more "fun" being a doctor than a patient! However, Dr. Johnson has taken care of my back and neck issues for several years. He is a great listener and my care has been complex, involving multiple procedures, including non-surgical as well as surgical treatments. With each, he has patiently explained risks, benefits, expected outcomes and potential complications; his confidence in his skill is well justified. I awakened from my lumbar laminectomy and fusion - pain free, where before I had experienced almost disabling discomfort. I have recommended a friend to him, with similar result. I hold Dr. Johnson in high regard.

  • My neck surgery went better than expected. The surgery has helped different areas in my entire back not just my neck. Dr Johnson was informative both before and after my surgery and he has a wonderful bedside manor.

  • 26 years ago I tore my ACL while participating in very intense recreational softball leagues traveling all over the USA but now was benched. I was 30 years old and this was a major part of my life. I went to an orthopedic and he told me time to hang it up. I was devastated and my husband said let's get a second opinion. So I went to Dr. Timothy Schultz and he told me that we were going to rehab for now and that he would have me playing by the next season. I rehabbed and after 5 months began playing with a DonJoy brace on my knee. I didn't miss a game or tournament. However the last national tournament we tattended I hit a hole in the outfield and popped my knee causing more damage. I went to Dr. Schultz and the next week he did surgery replacing my ACL with part of my hamstring and fixed the other injuries. In 6 months I was playing again with a brace but after two years didn't even have to wear my brace. I played for 21 more years and as women's softball started to decline, ...

  • My son who was 15 at the time and who is a three sport athlete in High School had to have surgery on his elbow due to having OCD of the elbow. Dr. Rick Papandrea was one of two Dr.'s we were referred to for my son and we chose to see him. I cannot tell you enough how wonderful Dr. Papandrea was in helping my son's elbow get fixed and getting him back to playing his sports he loves. Dr. Papandrea truly cares about his patients and giving them the best care he can. Him and his team are absolutely wonderful. I would highly recommend OAW and Dr. Papandrea to anyone who is in need of any kind of arm/shoulder/elbow/hand treatment or surgery. He is a top notch Surgeon!!!! Thanks Dr. Papandrea for all you did for my son.

  • After carefully researching online for an orthopedic specialist, I chose Dr. Al-Shihabi at OAW for a broken wrist. I have complete confidence and trust in him as his credentials are stellar. He suggested surgery after trying physical therapy and cortisone shots first. He explained the possible scenarios with surgery, and I have an MRI scheduled so he can assess exactly what will need to be done. He explained everything clearly and never had me alarmed by mentioning surgery at any time previously. He just took the necessary steps until it was inevitable to mention it and I respect that. Dr. Al-Shihabi has a great bedside manner and is very compassionate. He listens and does not hurry through the visits. Also, I need to mention the staff at both the Brookfield and Pewaukee offices. Everyone is very pleasant and happy. When I first called for an appointment, they fit me in as soon as they possibly could which was greatly appreciated.

  • Dr. Timothy Schultz replaced both my knees in June of 2012 (nine years ago). He was outstanding in every way. I was walking in public places at two weeks (with a walker yet). I have never had a problem in the years since. When I retired 8 years ago, I started walking 4 miles on most mornings. My knees have held up great! Now I'm wearing my hips out and need to come back to Orthopaedic Associates, but knees are are painless.

  • Dr. Viehe and his assistant Lisa provided an exceptional level of professionalism at my recent visit to this facility. I was so encouraged by their keen listening skills as I went into (probably too much) detail about my injury. I had endured nine months of disabling pain before finally hearing the words "we can help you." Their patience and positive feedback was amazing, and subsequently left me with a high level of confidence and optimism - people don't usually say they're happy to have surgery, but after this office visit, I'm looking forward to it!

    ~ Marsha Jacobs ~

  • We are super appreciative for Orthopedic Associates! Everyone from the walk in clinic in Brookfield to the referral to see a specialist in Pewaukee and everyone in-between have been phenomenal! Couldn’t be happier with everything! Thank you!

  • Changed My Life for the Better
    I have been treated for my back pain so a few years it got so bad I couldn't walk more then 10 mins. without severe pain shooting down my left side. After trying everything I sat down with Dr. Johnson and we both finally come to the conclusion to go ahead with a back fusion. It has been almost 4 months now after my surgery and I feel great I'm back to work after almost a year off and playing with my Kids again. I know I have a lot of healing to do yet and it is slow going at work but to Dr. Johnson and all the staff that have helped me over the years a huge THANKS I wouldn't be here without you. Every surgery is scary and the back is no different and there was pain and hurdles along the way but being able to get my life back even if it doesn't get back to 100% I'm ok with that. So to everyone at Orthopedic Associates and Dr. Johnson Thanks Again

  • Dr. Mitchell Klement is a knee replacement "specialist's specialist." for those who have had multiple scopes, repairs, and reconstructions over the years but find themselves still struggling with pain from wear and tear or injury. Once I had given him a full view of the many unique challenges he was facing by helping me, I was a little concerned with his optimism. As of today (six weeks post-op.), I am incredibly pleased to say his confidence was grounded in competence in this challenging area of medicine. I am very pleased.

  • Dr. Rick Papandrea has been my physician since 2004. He has replaced both of my shoulders, one with a traditional replacement and one using the reverse shoulder technique. He also did carpel tunnel surgery on my right hand. My surgeries went extremely well and I have had no issues since the operations. Dr. Papandrea is extremely knowledgeable, he keeps abreast of the latest innovations in his field, and he has a great deal of experience executing complex surgeries. He is also very caring, kind, and down-to-earth. He always takes the time to answer my questions, and he explains intricate and difficult procedures in a way that I can understand. I enjoy my visits with Dr. Papandrea because he treats me with respect and he is genuinely concerned about my well-being. Before my surgeries, when the nurses saw on my chart who the attending surgeon was, they all referred to Dr. Papandrea as “the best” and the “most meticulous.” I feel very fortunate to have him as my surgeon.

  • If it wasn't for Dr. Zoeller and Sara my life would be quite unbearable. I have severe back problems and surgery is not an option for me. So Dr. Zoeller and Sara have been so incredibly understanding and helpful in helping me finding a way to be comfortable and live my life, whether that means pain management or back injections. Basically anything they can do to make me more comfortable and as like my regular self as humanly possible.
    My life wouldn't be the same without them and I recommend them to anyone who needs someone in this area of expertise.
    I thank them from the bottom of my heart for all their help, understanding, and care! They are THE best!

  • Dr. Klement is the best. I had a total knee replacement in January and in one week I was back in my office. Him and his staff are so caring and explained everything that was going on. He is also going to be doing a hip replacement for me in a couple of months

    ~ Kibbye Fenwick ~

  • Dr Bong replaced my left hip approximately 6 years ago and it’s been great!!! No problems!

    ~ Juan G Hardin ~

  • Dr. Bong replaced both my hips, excellent surgeon and his whole team
    currently getting injections in both knees
    every 7 to 9 months
    if anyone is looking for a doctor for hip for knee replacement he is the one

  • In the last few years I've had 3 procedures done. Hip, hernia and elbow. I have never had a bad experience yet. Everyone has always treated me in the best and most professional manner. My primary is out of the system due to my confidence in him but whenever I need something done this is the only place I will ever come

    ~ RIck ANDERSON ~

  • My recent hip replacement (anterior) by Dr Davies was an excellent experience! He did my other hip 3 years ago and it was also excellent. Dr Davies is warm, friendly, very professional and comforting. And a great surgeon! My surgery was in the day surgery of the Oconomomoc hospital because I am over 70, but I was out by 5pm the same day after walking up and down a flight of stairs. They also arranged for physical therapy, through ProHealth Home Care, for the next 2+ weeks in my home to show me rehab exercises and they were terrific! I would very highly recommend the team at OAW, the ProHealth Home Care service and the hospital day surgery to anyone!

  • Dr Zoeller is a great doctor he is very caring and never forgets you. He has helped me for years I highly recommend him..

  • Dr. Coppage and his staff gave me the most positive medical experience I've had in 72 years. He took the time to actually listen to my complaint. His diagnosis was quick and explained very well. His treatment plan was for surgery which was scheduled within two weeks. The surgery went well, painless and super quick. His O.R. staff was outstanding. I was a bit nervous and one of the tech's. calmed me, held my hand and reassured me all would be fine. I think her name was Larrie Jo. My follow-up visit went well and the Dr. explained everything in a manner that was positive and reassuring. God bless him and his staff.
