Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Enker "My philosophy of care is to to achieve the best possible result with the least risk to my patient. In treating arthritis of the hip and knee, conservative treatment such as medication, injections and physical therapy are offered first. If the patient does not improve, total knee or total hip replacement can dramatically improve a patient's quality of life. In order to provide superior outcomes, I introduced anterior total hip replacement to Long Island"
