Patient Comments (1)
in The Sea Ranch, CA |
I had a very poor experience with Dr. Ehmer. I broke my femur in 2013. The surgery performed by Dr. Ehmer resulted in my left leg more than 1.25 shorter than my right leg. The asymmetric forces on my knees and spine leave me with chronic pain. When I asked Dr. Ehmer if this result was within his expectation, he became defensive and confrontational. He actually suggested that the difference in leg length predated my accident! The proposed solution: remove 1.25 from my right femur!
