What Makes Dr. Haskell Different?

I provide complex ankle reconstruction and replacement beyond what most providers offer with a focus on personalized care and compassion.


“I recently had shoulder surgery performed by Dr. Andrew Haskell and am incredibly grateful for the exceptional care I received. From the initial consultation to post-operative care, Dr. Haskell demonstrated expertise, professionalism, and compassion. His clear explanations and attentive demeanor were genuinely comforting. Thanks to Dr. Haskell’s skillful work, the surgery was a success, and I’m on my way to recovery. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Haskell for orthopedic care because of his expertise and empathy.”-Raul R.

“Dr. Haskell was a godsend when I shattered my left ankle joint (trimalleolar fracture + tibia dislocation) in 2016. I had never broken a bone before in my life, and he was first and foremost a very kind, compassionate doctor who helped put me at ease while he gave me the facts. As described by his equally wonderful PA, he is “the” doctor who will go in and fix an ugly, complex fracture that no other surgeon will touch. During surgery, I had 12 screws and two plates inserted to piece together my shattered ankle–yes, it was that bad. (In 2017, he removed it all during an elective second surgery.) He also called me once I was home to check on me. Fast forward five years later, and not only does my ankle feel great, considering the trauma it went through, but I also don’t have any signs of arthritis in the joint (I’m in my 40s). I actively play tennis and rarely think about it anymore. My scars are minimal and hardly noticeable, if you care about that sort of thing. I highly recommend Dr. Haskell for anyone who requires orthopedic surgery!” -Christina G.

“I recently broke my ankle (fibula) while hiking and Doctor Haskell did a fantastic job diagnosing the problem, determining that I would need an operation, and doing the surgery. He was very friendly and easy to talk to. He took the time to answer any and all of my questions. The operation went well, and he did an excellent job on all the follow ups. I had an extremely positive experience with Dr Haskell and highly recommend him.” -Juan L.
