Dr. Ninomiya takes his time with each patient to the satisfaction of the patient. He is down to earth and explains things in every day language. He and his team pay attention to the details to make sure you are supported and have the best chance of success from pre-op to the operation and post op, as well as through recovery. They are in daily contact with you and very responsive. I had my right hip replaced and are going to need to have my left hip replaced and there is no way I will go to anyone other then Dr. Ninamiya to have it done. I'm very impressed by he and his team's attention to the details and their ability to make you feel like the only patient. Also it's important to me to be treated with honesty and respect, which was just outstanding from the first appointment to the last follow-up appointment.

Dr. Ninomiya was extremely caring and professional both before surgery and after. Having him as my surgeon made a very frightening experience tolerable. Likewise the Ortho team, Nursing staff, and Rehab team at CMH and Froedtert were top notch. Thank you to all.

Friendly atmosphere from the start by all I met who would answer all my questions and concerns. I have all the faith in the world in Dr. N’s talents and his team. Hopefully I will never need his services again but I wouldn’t hesitate to have him work his “magic” on me again.

He’s a excellent doctor and it took 2 week before I could walk again that is excellent timing and to me he’s the best doctor I would use having a joint replacement.

From first meeting with Dr Ninomiya and all the time he took discussing and answering my questions, to surgery and now in recovery from my TKR, my experience has been wonderful. Surgery was done with a spinal which I highly recommend. Hospital staff was caring, always patient and attentiveness. Dr Ninomiya did a great job on my knee. I believe my healing and how good the knee is progressing is evidence of his great work. And the incision over the knee is beautiful. Dr Ninomiya is exemplary.

went to see him Aug 2017 about very bad knee problem. Talked with nurse first, my weight seemed to be a problem. He came to see me and never looked at the knee . Talk was My BMI. heart condition , and lung condition . Never once did he address the problem with my knee. My other Doctors said it wasn't a problem for me to have a replacement. I found a younger Doctor, said NO PROBLEM..Dec 4,2017 new knee. Great! Ninomiya is Rude and Unprofessional. And most likely not that Good of a orthopedic MD.
