About Me

I encourage non-operative treatment of hip and knee arthritis as first-line therapy. The decision to proceed with surgery should only be made once modalities such as medical management, injection therapy, physical therapy, and bracing have been exhausted.

What People Say About Dr. Robert Cercek Jr, MD
RecentMost Helpful

This doctor refused to take out my husband 's knee replacement which had a staph infection in it. He simply opened up knee washed it out and replaced the plastic. Then he sent him to an infectious disease doctor who put him on 6 weeks of antibiotics. Naturally the staph came back since replacement hadn't been removed. We found a good doctor who took out whole replacement and my husband is on another 6 weeks of antibiotics. My husband has a compromised immune system because of rheumatoid arthritis....a good doctor would not have done a procedure on him that is only 50 % successful in a healthy person. We just hope our Medicare holds out. Only 100 days a year is covered and it only covers intravenous antibiotics in a rehabilitation facility. 175.00 a day. Go to an orthopedist who will do the job right the first time.
