      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!!!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      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.
