Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Wilmink "A Message from Michael Wilmink, M.D. At six years old, I decided I wanted to be a "Brain Surgeon". I obviously didn't know what that meant at that age. I played water polo from a very young age and at age 15 started playing on the national team. I played on that team through my third year in medical school. We traveled around the world to play and always had our team physicians with us. The exposure to that profession peaked my interest. The sports side of the profession and the daily problem-solving confirmed my decision to go into orthopedic surgery. Nothing ever presents the same in orthopedics. I like getting people back to doing what they love. I have a commitment to my patients to get them back to where they want to be. The best day for me is when I see a patient walk into my office that was in ICU for 3 months and we didn't know if that person would live or die. You become emotionally involved with those patients. I treat my patients like family. First and foremost, I'm interested in you as a person. My first question when you come into my office is about what you do, what you enjoy doing, not about your injury. But paying attention to the personal side doesn't mean that I am not in touch with the latest orthopedic techniques."

In a five-year timeframe I needed both hips replaced. I cannot say enough about Dr. Wilmink and P.A. Adrienne Kelley. They are an amazing duo! Their reassurance in pre and post op put me at ease, particularly at the first surgery which made going back for the second surgery a "no brainer" for me. I...more
