I am new to So. Hills Orthopaedic. I am having some knee issues and asked my dad's surgeon, Dr. Malay who is affiliated w/St. Clair Hospital if he knew of a good doctor. Never had surgeries of any kind, so I wanted someone reputable in case surgery would be needed. I chose Dr. Fluhme after he was recommended by my dad's surgeon, Dr. Malay. Well after reading his bio online, I was not disappointed w/my choice. Dr. Fluhme is professional, yet so down to earth, friendly, nice and fun! I could tell he was smiling behind his mask! He made me feel comfortable and spoke in language I could easily follow about what was going on w/my knee. I'm scheduled for my 1st surgery ever (albeit outpatient, but surgery none the less!). I am not nervous whatsoever as Dr. Fluhme was very thorough in what I should expect, and for the first time having surgery I'm comfortable and glad it's going to be Dr. Fluhme! I HIGHLY recommend So. Hills Orthopaedic and Dr. Fluhme. :)

I visited Dr. Fluhme to pain in my right knee. Dr. Fluhme was extremely professional and took the time to review my x-rays with me explain what was going on with my knee. He thoroughly explained the options and what steps he would recommend to help me maintain my active lifestyle. After draining significant fluid and providing a cortisone shot, my knee felt significantly better. I had been to other orthopedic surgeons who did not take the time to review my x-rays with me, or understand my objectives. I would highly recommend Dr. Fluhme to anyone experiencing chronic knee pain.
