Dr. Shindell has been in practice better than 31 years and will be retiring as of September 30th, 2020.

It has been my profound pleasure to serve the children of Phoenix.
I was the first full-time pediatric orthopedic surgeon in town and I think we have done well for the
children in Phoenix. Hopefully we have provided a positive outcome for your child.

I have plenty of mixed feelings about retirement and I hope all of you do well. I am referring the patients
in the Northwest Valley to Dr. Louis Vu, my East Valley patients to Dr. Ryan Miller, and am strongly
recommending Dr. Delwyn Worthington for those with issues as they transition into adulthood.
