"Each of our patients has unique needs and expectations. We apply a team approach, incorporating therapists, trainers and other specialists to maximize improvement. I strongly emphasize physical rehabilitation and recommend surgery only for clear diagnoses when other treatments have failed."

Top Doctor


Dr. McCarty works directly with his patients to identify their needs and goals to help them return to full function as soon as possible. He utilizes a team approach during diagnosis, procedure and recovery involving cooperation between physicians, therapists, trainers and especially the patient. Dr. McCarty believes that surgery is a very beneficial option if needed, but he takes care to never operate unless absolutely necessary.

In addition, Milwaukee Magazine and peer physicians recognized Dr. McCarty as a Top Doctor in Southeast Wisconsin in 2018, 2016 and 2015.
