Care Philosophy

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 IslandRead more

I had my hip replaced on October 27th and about 10 weeks later I feel incredible. The anterior approach for hip replacements is awesome, very little pain and a very quick recovery. Dr. Enker is an excellent doctor who spends the time to educate you on the process and truly has a passion to help the patient. He was recommended to me from a prior patient and now I absolutely will recommend Dr. Enker to anyone with a hip issue.

I was in pain all the time.It is now 17 days since my surgery and I am doing so far better than I ever imagined thanks to Dr Enker's brilliant anterior approach to total hip replacement . Since the day after the operation my hip no longer felt the pain it did before. My physical therapist says I am ahead of schedule too! I am forever indebted to Dr Enker for giving me back my quality of life again. You won't find a better Dr or a better procedure than his anterior hip replacement.

I had both hips replaced by Dr Enker, I could not be happier. Dr Enker did both hips with anterior surgery. I came home right after surgery no rehab. I never needed any pain meds and I recovered pretty quickly. Its been 3yrs since my last surgery and I walk without any pain or problems.
