The pre surgical information provided is outstanding. Totally prepares you for a scary sounding surgery. I was out of the hospital the day after surgery, and climbing stairs in my 2 story condo. The method Dr. Zehr used left me in better shape than I have been for years. I took a trip only 4 months after hip replacement and I didn't have even a hint of a limp. Range of motion is better than I can remember! I would recommend Dr. Zehr to anyone that I care about.

From day 1 I felt at ease with the Dr. Everyone associated with him are angels.

If you are considering a hip replacement, it should be the Anterior approach. Dr Zehr Is highly experienced in this precise hip replacement. His team from the office staff to the OR team all work together & you are well aware that you are in good hands. Your Guide Book given to you prior to surgery prepares you for pre-op, post-op, physical therapy and answers many questions you may have. I am grateful for my new hip! Thank you Dr Zehr & team!

I would recommend Dr Zehr but I would let them know he is the Phantom of the Opera. you see him when you are booking the surgery. He answers all questions clearly and patiently. Gives you detailed books to read about what to expect and basically that is the last time you will see him except when he comes by to ink mark your surgery spot . After surgery you will not see him nor will your husband/wife see nor talk to him. He is great at what he does. Precision Personified

The expertise exhibited and friendliness of Dr. Zehr and his entire staff bolstered my confidence through out the preparation and recovery period. The BOOK provided to us is written in terms that spelled out everything required before and after surgery. Bases on my positive experience, have recommended 2 people in which both had surgeries with excellent results.

Procedures Performed

Dr. Zehr says..

Total Hip Replacement can be done through several different approaches to the hip joint.  The direct anterior approach allows to surgeons to enter the hip joint without cutting through any muscle which results in far less pain post operatively. In addition this approach uses fluoroscopic technology to allow a far more accurate placement of the components of the hip replacement. Less pain, more accurate, quicker recovery and no post operative restrictions of motion are why patients are demanding this approach for their hip replacement surgery

Dr. Zehr has performed hip replacement surgery using the direct anterior approach more than 1200 times and currently does more hip replacement surgeries in the Naples, FL area than any other surgeon.
