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 MAKOplasty® RIO® Robotic Arm at CORE where he performs most of his surgeries. He has quickly established himself as an innovator and advocate of advanced orthopaedic care with skills in computer navigation, MAKOplasty®, mobile-bearing knee replacements and alternate bearing hip replacements. Dr. Mittal is different from other CAS & MAKOplasty® users in his ability to use the navigation software and RIO® robotic arm to truly customize the hip or knee prosthesis to fit the patient, in terms of sizing, alignment and ligament balancing.

His interest in regenerative medicine and the dire need for effective non-surgical treatment options led him to create the Institute for Regenerative Medicine & Joint Preservation in 2013. Quickly becoming a leader in this field, Dr. Mittal lectured at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons recently to further promote advancement. He has now started working with Riordan Medical Institute in Dallas to treat a variety of medical and orthopaedic conditions using techniques in regenerative medicine. Dr. Mittal is also currently conducting stem cell research and development and has been named to the RMI board overseeing future projects in regenerative medicine.

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.
