One of the BEST Hip replacement specialist in the World!!! I was walking right after surgery. After a couple of days, I did not use anything like a cain or walker. Two months out from surgery and I walked 4 miles this morning. I feel Great! Amazing surgeon, great bedside manner, just a great all around experience! If I need the other hip done at some point...Dr. Eilerman is my Surgeon!

Dr. Eilerman was referred to me by my family physician and I am forever thankful for this referral. My right hip was in terrible condition and never without pain. The new anterior method of hip replacement is definitely the way to go. I did not have therapy after surgery and am now without pain for the first time in many years (surgery only six weeks ago). Follow-up visits to Dr. Eilerman and his office staff were most helpful in answering any questions. They deserve a round of applause!

After two anterior hip replacements, I have regained motion built stamina and feeling good. No pain. Recovery was easy, staff was exceptional, and surgeon willing to answer questions. When my incision didn't heal correctly, he was stayed on top of things by scheduling extra appointments to insure that there was no infection.

He is one of the few Knoxville surgeons who does the anterior hip replacement surgery and I wouldn't consider any other type of hip replacement. He took time to answer my questions and explain what would happen and after surgery I also had lots of questions which were answered very satisfactorily. And what he said, was indeed what I experienced. I appreciate his open discussion of infections and precautions for them. His office was outstanding in communicating with me as well.

After having my left hip replacement surgery performed by Dr.Micheal Eilerman using the anterior approach. I am able to return to a normal pain free lifestyle after only 6 weeks post operative. Dr.Eilerman did an excellent job explaining the surgery and answering any questions I had before and after my surgery. I can never thank him and his staff enough for the great care they provided.

I needed bilateral hip replacement. Dr. Eilerman does the anterior approach procedure. My left hip was so bad that he put me on the schedule the next week. The day of surgery everything and everyone were ready to get started. the pre-and post-operative care was beyond reproach.. I was visited by every Dr, involved in my care during the surgery. I did my other hip as soon as possible due to the excellent care given by Dr, Eilerman. He is an outstanding, understanding surgeon. A+++

The office staff is very slow to respond and they tend to give you the run around. We recently talked to four different staff members about an issue who finally directed us to do what we have already done. Communication is very lacking within the office. The doctor himself is in a big hurry. He gives the info he has (not in layman's terms), and then leaves the exam room without giving opportunity to ask questions. On one occasion, the wait was over two HOURS!!!

Dr. Eilerman says...

Dr. Eilerman is the premier direct anterior approach surgeon in Knoxville. He was the first surgeon in Knoxville to perform this method of hip replacement over 7 years ago. To date, he has performed over 2,000 hip replacements using the direct anterior approach. 

With this approach, Dr. Eilerman is able to perform the surgery through the front of the hip, avoiding any cutting of the muscles or tendons, making it much less invasive than traditional hip replacement. This approach allows for a lower dislocation rate and quicker recovery.
