Our Practice

With so many choices in the region, what sets our practice apart? We strive to treat our patients with compassion, care and concern, using the most up-to-date Orthopedic knowledge and surgical techniques. Our goal is to make you feel as good as (or better!) than you felt prior to your injury or orthopedic issue. We want to ensure that your treatment works with your lifestyle, so we will create a recovery or rehabilitation plan for YOU, not just your condition.


In 2010 Dr. Mihelic was the orthopedic surgeon on call after I suffered a severe compound fracture of my right forearm from a freak accident at home late at night. Being that it was a compound fracture I needed emergency surgery due to the high potential of infection.

Meeting Dr. Mihelic for the first time in the wee hours of the morning, I was impressed by his gentle low key demeanor which immediately allayed my fear and apprehension. Dr. Mihelic demonstrated his mettle as a skilled surgeon repairing the jigsaw puzzle that was my arm. He even commented later that the force and impact of the injury was more like what is seen in the military than a typical home accident.

The whole ordeal went very smoothly. His office staff was very supportive and always upbeat and friendly. All in all a great team. I never suffered an infection or any complications and returned to my work as a Dental Hygienist, with full function and minimal deficits.

If I should encounter another orthopedic incident, Dr. Mihelic will be my go to guy. I trust him implicitly and I know I will receive Cadillac care.

Thank you Nick! Following years of sports and bodily abuse to the extent my left leg would bear no weight, you gave me a Vanguard Biomet full knee replacement July 2, 2013 as I turned 69.

Two weeks later, I was driving myself to rehab; at four weeks I was riding my road bike several miles each morning; and at 7 1/2 weeks, I played 18 holes of golf with no knee pain. Further, today, as I write this at not quite eight weeks, I rode my bike 10 miles and pain free!

Look forward to replacing the right knee for my 70th. birthday.

The best to you and your great group.

Dr. Mihelic operated on me 8 years ago performing a ‘total knee’. His excellence as an Orthopedic Surgeon provided me with total success in my knee replacement and I now am anticipating my other knee to be replaced.

His experience offered me the opportunity to select the replacement best suited for my active lifestyle. I recommend him as he also performed my successful bunionectomy and knee arthroscopy.

I received recommendations from many people on the island to have Dr. Mihelic perform my arthroscopy. The results were outstanding and I highly recommend him too.
