Andrew Wohler

Orthopedic Surgeon

Dr. Andrew Wohler takes a patient-centered approach to care in which the individual demands of each patient – their job, activities and hobbies – are taken into account when developing a treatment plan for their injury. While he was first introduced to the field of orthopedics after suffering an injury as a college athlete, Dr. Wohler’s desire to become an orthopedic surgeon was cemented during his third year of medical school when he saw the impact orthopedic surgeons could have on the lives on their patients. Today, Dr. Wohler enjoys the variety of cases and levels of complexity he sees as an orthopedic foot and ankle surgeon. One of the best parts of his job is being able to help restore a patient’s quality of life and function.

When he’s not working, Dr. Wohler enjoys spending time with his wife and four children. His activities and hobbies include homebrewing, hiking, skiing and playing golf.

When a patient has foot or ankle pain it bothers them, literally, with every step. Being able to treat this and improve a patient’s function is one of the aspects I enjoy most about foot and ankle surgery.
