Foot & Ankle
The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Chilvers.
“Dr. Chilvers listened to what I had to say about my situation, and where the pain was. She discussed options with me and told me how the process worked. My ankle is much better now and I am very happy after several years of pain to have found some relief.”

“Dr. Chilvers did surgery on both of my feet to resolve degenerative arthritis pain. She is the most compassionate, down-to-earth, humorous physician I have ever had (and I have had many!) I have experienced joint replacement in both shoulders, both hips, both knees, both hands and three lower back surgeries. Although I am now in better condition that I have been in 40 years in terms of pain management and mobility, my feet suffered the weight of my body's gait for many years. When I met Dr. Chilvers, I believe I was her first patient when she joined the staff of BHOSC and I knew the moment she walked into the examining room that this was going to be my final victory! She immediately went to diagnosing, VERY comprehensively explaining and outlining treatment for me. She did my first surgery for me so that I was able to walk down the aisle unassisted for my 55th wedding anniversary renewal ceremony without pain or cane! What a surprise for my family, grandchildren especially, who saw Grandma moving under my own power with a big smile on my face! I had the second foot operated on and, again with great success, which now has me swimming, walking, shopping, playing with my great-grandchildren and loving life again!. Kudos to your staff - without them I would not be living the blessed life I now enjoy!”

“From the first visit to my last followup I have been impressed. Love Dr.Chilvers ! Always answered my questions and tendered kindness with a since of humor. Experience really shows. Dr. Chivers knew about the pain in my ankle, symptoms I had not mentioned to anyone. I am not a patient soul and has always been a good sport when I tend to rush things. This whole experience has been a learning one. Advise to others like me. Take the time you need to heal. Work can wait.”
– Dianna M.
“Dr. Chilvers is great. She is direct and honest with her patients and that is what I want with my doctors. She lays out all the options there are but will also tell you if she is unsure of something. She also makes sure to involve you in your care instead of dictating your care to you. I would recommend her to anyone.”
– Kelsey H.
“I have been receiving outpatient care from BHO&SC for 5 years. Most recently, over the past year, Dr. Chilvers been managing the arthritis in my feet. Through a progression of therapies for the problem, she and I agreed on a surgical procedure that will very likely put me back on my feet without the pain I've been tolerating for years. After we agreement on the plan of surgery, the progression of events went quickly and smoothly. And now I'm 3 weeks post surgery and the arthritic pain and discomfort have significantly subsided. The bones and incisions are knitting nicely just like Dr. Chilvers said they would! I'm extremely pleased with the care I've received from Dr. Chilvers and all the medical, imaging, and administrative staff members I've encountered at BHO&SC.”
– Steve M.
“Although recovery was severe post-surgery, she was very supportive and reassuring as was her PA. Just one time, she seemed in a rush, and I didn’t get some questions asked. But overall a very positive experience. I have osteoarthritis. I know I will need more care down the road, and Black Hills Orthopedic & Spine Center will be my go-to place.”
– Pearl B.
“I was very pleased with Dr. Chilvers and her attention to the medical issues I have been experiencing.”

“I am moving back to Wyoming after working out of state in North Carolina for the last five years to be closer to my family. I am getting older now, and I find my health needs are increasing. I have been seeing a Doctor back in NC for some serious foot issues. I knew I would soon need surgery, and I would have a lengthy recovery since I will be a full-time resident in Wyoming again. My family researched for me and found me a highly respected Orthopedic Surgeon, Dr. Peg Chilvers, at your Black Hills Orthopedic & Spine Clinic. I had my first appointment with her last week at your satellite clinic in Gillette, WY to discuss my foot issues. I am happy with her knowledge, kindness, caring, and thoughtfulness. Dr. Chilvers has put any apprehension I may have had towards foot surgery at rest, and she has gained my trust and respect in the process. I am now confident that she will be very successful in correcting my foot problems. I was also pleasantly surprised that she took the time to personally phone me back with answers to a few questions that I thought of after my appointment. Dr. Peg Chilvers sets a pretty high standard for all the other physicians. She is a Blessing to her patients and has terrific people skills. We are lucky to have her practicing in South Dakota and Wyoming and working for a highly respected clinic such as Black Hills Orthopedic & Spine. "Dr. Chilvers...you are exceptional!"”

On my first visit, she added cork to my VA provided plantar fasciitis inserts, to correct the distal bends in my ankles. She assured me that I didn't have to live with weak ankles for the rest of my life. It was welcoming news. She's no-nonsense and professional, just the specialist I needed.”

“I have been very impressed and pleased with Dr. Chilvers. She explained why I was having my problems with my foot and gave me a couple of choices to contemplate. Dr. Chilvers also asked about my general health, referred me to Mayo for issues I was having and through that process I was able to get help and am feeling much better. She knew that feeling better would help me recover from the procedure I had. Surgery with Dr. Chilvers was last year and I am mid recovery or close to it. The care I have received from her is stellar and I would highly recommend Dr. Chilvers.”
