    Prior to my surgical procedure, Dr. Welker was great. Afterwards, just terrible. Spends very little time with aftercare service. It almost seemed like since the surgery was not a success, his ego was hurt. When I suggested further evaluation to determine my orignal problem (which was not resolved), he refused. His answer was "I don't think that is what is wrong." I have not returned to office. I wish I would have researched him more prior to my surgery.

    Dr. Welker is the best. He always takes time to talk to you about your family and how you are doing. My wife is getting ready for her second knee replacement, and we went back to him because her first one went great, and she had very little pain. We would recommend to anyone.

    Professional, Experienced surgeon, thorough, kind, friendly, personable, caring, and funny... Only a few words of many I could use to describe Dr. Michael Welker. He's right up there with Dr Alan Thurman!
    in Springboro, OH |
    Dr. Welker came to me very highly recommended by several friends and additional medical professionals. With out a doubt one of the best doctors I have ever had any dealings with. Thorough diagnosis and explanations. Very complete discussions about the advised solution to the problem. Very personable and understanding. Would highly recommend to anyone considering joint replacement.

    It was awful. Dr. Welker performed 2 surgeries on me which neither one was successful. I had a total knee replacement which did not go well. I tried to follow up with him he wouldn't take my calls. I went to a different Orthopedic Surgeon who told me the replacement was the wrong size, the ligaments around the knee cap where not stable around the knee causing it to bow inward. Which resulted in me having to have another knee replacement by a different Doctor. Dr. Welker was the worst ever.

    Very informative in interaction with me Eliminated other options for improving the function of my knee, before resorting to TKR. The whole process of hospitalization, surgery & recovery, post surgery knee exercise and recommendation for OP rehab being SO successful convinced me Mike has true understanding of his craft. He knows what works. Other folks who've had same knee problem & surgery with other Docs not fared so well. I think the secret is the CPM ACTIVITY & OP rehab. DOS: April 2008.
