The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Sticha.
“D.r Sticha was very thorough and kind. He answered all my questions and always had time to visit and find out how I was doing. He explained the surgical procedure and what I should expect after it was done, as well as my recovery and how long it may take.”
– Sandy V.

– Tom L.
“Dr. Sticha is the best orthopedic doc I have had...he listens instead of just prescribes. I feel so confident with him in charge of my ankle care”
– Jenelle P.
“Could barely walk when I saw dr sticha. He quickly diagnosed my issue and did surgery. I am very pleased with the outcome. Walking without pain again.”
– Roger P.
“Dr. Sticha has medical manners that made me feel very comfortable and confident with his surgical expertise on total ankle replacement. I had surgery last year. When I first learned that his procedure and implantation was available, I couldn't believe it. Then I had a chance to talk with him at an Ortho presentation and gained much confidence in what he was talking about. My appointments with him began about 18 months before surgery. He took a conservative approach first before actually recommending surgery. That approach was much appreciated. Leading up to the operation and after surgery were appointments that helped me understand what was happening. Upon his advice, I followed directions explicitly. Thus I have an ankle that healed well and provided me with no pain, much agility and stability, and stronger than what I had years back. Thank you for doing this. I owe you, folks, a huge debt of gratitude.”
– Tony F.
“This review encompasses from February's initial appointment the morning after the fracture of my fibula and ankle through the first post-op appointment in February. From receptionists at check-in through X-rays, stabilizing injured ankle and leg, and detailing the scope of injury, treatment, surgery, and recovery timeline, the care, consideration, and professionalism across staff was very reassuring and appreciated. Dr. Sticha and everyone were responsive and efficient and took the time to explain what was happening. It wasn’t just for me when I was waiting after post-op for a taxi home; I saw staff proactively compassionately assisting older patients and actively checking on them.”
– Kevin K.
“Dr. Sticha was friendly, concerned, and had great communication. Dr. Sticha is very personable while maintaining doctor-patient professionalism. My health issues were met, and my concerns were addressed. All of the employees I interacted with during my visit were upbeat, positive, and very friendly.”
– Michael N.

“The nursing staff whom checked me in, was very professional, along with taking the time to listen carefully regarding my foot issue. Taking precise notes as a nurse, when Dr., Sticha came in, he knew what my primary concern was regarding. Dr. Sticha performed a procedure on my foot, along with being very kind and gentle. Told me that if I am not any better in three weeks (following an injection) that I should contact him. Very professional, along with being very knowledgeable of the situation. Highly recommend Heartland Orthopedic Specialists.”
– Deloris O.
“The doctor and the staff were very thorough very pleasant very businesslike and very caring in what they do. And they didn't talk in doctor terms they speak to where I could understand what they were talking about.”

“He listened to my needs and took care of it.”
– Jeannie H.
“Dr. Sticha always listens to my concerns, my desire to wait for an ankle replacement until I was ready. He was always informed and ready to discuss my case prior to my appointment. So the time with him was face to face, not him hovering over a computer to remember who I was and what my needs were. I have been to several ankle specialists throughout the state of Minnesota...he is the absolute best on so many levels.”
