It has been my pleasure to treat the patients of Michiana for 25 years. My goal is to provide the highest level of orthopaedic care. I have a special interest in treating knees, shoulders, hips and sports medicine. As the president of South Bend Orthopaedics, I assure you that we have the best and brightest orthopaedic doctors in the area who will treat you with the care and compassion you deserve.

Easy to talk to and is very friendly
The Dr. was seemingly anxious to get to his next patient, but always remained for the next question, if I spoke up fast enough.
I have recommended Dr. Kelbel several times. I have had two rotor cuff surgeries and a knee replacement by him.

Dr. Kelbel and Dr. Stillwagon are excellent physicians and I trust them completely.
Already had the pleasure of meeting Dr. before he took care of my mother very good personality.
Dr. Kelbel is very nice and I have full confidence in his skills but I and my daughter are not doctors. Explanation of her condition was far too technical. I have some medical experience but she, the patient, does not! She only knew what was being said after I explained it to her.
Dr Kelbel was fast, friendly and efficient. I've talked with someone else about him and they said same thing.
This was the first time I had met Dr. Kelbel. I liked him right away, and felt he explained everything and answered all my questions completely.
Have recommended Dr. Kelbel to many others.
He just seemed to be in a hurry!
