    Knee surgery was very successful 5 years ago. Developing pain and now he is too busy and I'll have to wait 8 weeks to see him.
    Oh no Bob! We'd like to contact you regarding this but we need your full name. Could you private message us on our Facebook page

    Dr. Gustke is an amazing surgeon. I have had multiple surgeries on the left hip, not any fault but my own, and Dr. Gustke is one of the only doctors who would touch my hip. From the moment I woke up from my surgery, there has not been any pain what so ever. He is my doctor and my doctor of choice.

    Beware BUNDLING - Do not get in the bundling program with Gustke. My 88 year old mother was released from rehab after knee surgery before she was able to safely transfer from her chair to bed to restroom as she had been able to do in her apartment prior to surgery. I tried to explain that to the office person, Penny, and requested to speak with Gustke but no one would listen. I am very disappointed in my mother's care. I doubt anyone would want their mother or grandmother treated this way.

    He is amazing, but be prepared he has no bedside manner.
