Dr. Betzle attributes his grandmother as one of the biggest influences in his life. She was not only strong in her Catholic faith, but in her desire to serve others. At a young age, Dr. Betzle would accompany his grandmother as she worked as a hospice volunteer and took communion to those who could not come to Mass. She, along with her Catholic faith, taught Dr. Betzle the value and importance of selfless service to others. That, combined with an intellectual interest for science, led Dr. Betzle to a career in medicine. He was drawn to orthopedics because of the ability to make a significant impact on a patient's quality of life through both surgical and non-surgical treatments to restore form and function of the musculoskeletal system.Dr. Betzle’s ability to use his knowledge and expertise to help make a difference in someone’s life is why he looks forward to coming to work each and every day.In his free time, Dr. Betzle enjoys spending time with his wife and children as …well as running and swimming. Dr. Betzle looks forward to becoming more active in his church, St. Augustine Cathedral.Dr. Betzle specializes in knee and hip joint replacement, including a special interest in anterior hip replacement.What I enjoy most about adult reconstruction (joint replacement surgery) is my ability to help improve the quality of life of the patients I treat. I don't think of it as a job, but as a way to make a difference in someone's life. You get the chance to learn a lot about a person's interests and hobbies - things they are passionate about and how they are currently limited from participating in and enjoying those things. It is an honor and a privilege to be able to help give people relief from pain and get them back to doing things that they enjoy doing.
