About Dr. Mittal
Dr. Mittal is a native Texan who grew up in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. After attending Baylor University on a full academic scholarship, he attended one of the best medical schools in the United States, University of Texas Southwestern in Dallas. In medical school he cultivated his growing interest in Orthopaedic surgery, and subsequently accepted a much sought-after Orthopaedic residency position at John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth. His desire to perform total joint replacement surgery led him to the highly acclaimed fellowship program at Charlotte Orthopaedic Specialists (now OrthoCarolina) in Charlotte, North Carolina where thousands of joint replacements are performed each year.
Dr. Mittal returned to the South to practice at The Orthopaedic Center. The Orthopaedic Center provides a full array of Orthopaedic care to people with a broad variety of Orthopaedic problems. Dr. Mittal was instrumental in the adoption of computer navigation and the Mako Robotic System with the Center for Orthopaedic Reconstruction & Excellence (CORE) where he performs most surgeries. He has quickly established himself as an innovator and advocate of advanced orthopaedic care with skills in computer navigation, Mako, mobile-bearing knee replacements and alternate bearing hip replacements. Dr. Mittal is different from other CAS & Mako users in his ability to use the navigation software and the Mako Robotic System to truly customize the hip or knee prosthesis to fit the patient, in terms of sizing, alignment and ligament balancing.
Dr. Mittal has an avid interest in fitness training and sports. In his free time, he enjoys traveling and spending time with his family and friends.
