Dr. Gelbke came highly recommended by numerous colleagues. Getting an appointment was the most difficult part, which confirms to me he is good because everyone wants to see him! Dr. Gelbke is very chill. He listened to and answered all my questions, considered all my concerns about surgery and let me make the hard decisions. Surgery was scheduled quickly, hip replacement went well, recovery has been quick and painless. Pain is almost non-existent now. Dr. Gelbke is easy to work with, sympathetic to my pain, and a funny guy. He visited me twice in the hospital after surgery, and made sure things were going well. I would recommend him to anyone looking for competent, compassionate and skilled care for orthopedic conditions.

Dr. Gelbke performed a partial replacement of my left knee. The pre-surgical care, the surgery and aftercare were superb. My recovery was very rapid and I experienced little pain. Because of previous knee surgery my case was not simple and Dr. Gelbke took great pains to confirm that partial knee replacement was appropriate in my case.

Chose Dr. Gelbke because of good personal recommendations and online reviews. Reasonable wait to get an appointment and then surgery. Hip replacement went well. Feeling MUCH better than before surgery. Healing well. Felt he was friendly and easy to talk to. He visited me twice in the hospital after surgery to make sure things were going well.
