Paul's story

I had a tremendous experience with Summit Orthopedics. After enduring knee pain for a number of years, I decided to go ahead with total knee replacement with Dr. Jack Drogt as my surgeon. After going through Summit’s knee replacement program, I was able to realize a dream of hiking a 14er in Aspen, Colorado. Additionally, I have been able to resume golfing, bowling, and walking many miles, all pain free. Thank You Summit Orthopedics!

Every experience has been nothing but the best ~ regarding the care and concern from Dr. Drogt and his staff, including his PAC’S.  It’s wonderful to be treated and to be regarded as a “special” patient.  The feeling of having a “personal” relationship with the staff is amazing and very much appreciated.  Makes going to “the Doctor” so much easier and comfortable.  This Summit Orthopedics Clinic has been highly recommended to others by me!

Perfect experience. He is a  #1 doctor – no one could take his place. He has a great concern for his patients.

Lynn's Story

I cannot express my gratitude to Dr. Drogt and his team. The care I have received has been the best overall medical experience in my life. I am just over 2 weeks recovering from a partial knee replacement surgery. I am finally on the road to being pain free and getting my life back. The post-op care suite was amazing and I was up and walking that afternoon. Dr. Drogt is honest, direct and wants the best for his patients. Emily has been wonderful answering my questions and always so pleasant. I will recommend everyone I know to go to Summit orthopedics. They are an extremely fine tuned machine in the orthopedic world. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

The whole experience with working with Dr. Jack Drogt and his team at Summit Orthopedics has been outstanding! I was even dancing at a wedding 3 days after full left hip replacement surgery without assistance.

Comment from Marilyn W.

25 years ago I fell from a platform onto a stage at White Bear High School. I was rushed by ambulance to St. John’s hospital and Dr. Drogt was the doctor on call that day. He helped to save my life and I will be forever grateful! I smashed my left wrist, had a compound fracture, head injury, dislocated elbow and shoulder and broken ribs. Dr. Drogt and his team put this Humpty Dumpty back together in 4 surgeries. I also had 2 years of physical therapy. I am a high school teacher working with students with developmental cognitive disabilities and autism. I also am a private piano and guitar teacher! Thank you, Dr. Drogt, for repairing my broken body and restoring my ability to do the work I am passionate about!!
