    in Overland Park, KS |
    Great experience all around
    in Lenexa, KS |
    Dr. Wingerter answered all my questions directly and thoroughly prior to surgery (he was the 3rd surgeon I interviewed). Nothing glib or evasive. His approach was carefully considered, and the best for fast and full recovery. I walked with a cane into my 2-week follow-up, and began walking w/o cane in another 2 weeks. 3 months and I was back to normal activities including bicycling, long walks, and standing for hours when needed. When I need the left done, I will call him again.

    Very happy with my new hip! It also fixed my knee pain! I would recommend Dr. Wingerter to anyone needing a hip or a knee replacement. He has done a knee and two hips for me. He is efficient and professional.

    Replaced my left knee and my recovery was ahead of schedule from day one. He will be replacing right knee soon.

    Surgery went well. I was confident before surgery after I met with him and he clearly explained what my options were and patiently answered my questions.

    From the initial consultation through the surgery and recovery, Dr Wingerter clearly outlined options for my hip replacement and set accurate expectations on the surgery and recovery.
    in Overland Park, KS |
    Dr. Wingerter is the absolute best!! Fixed my hip and I've need felt better! Plus he is friendly and truly cares about the patient!
    in Kansas City, MO |
    is professional, finally, and take the time to explain of the procedures. I had a hip replacement, left, totally, and everything went exactly as described. I am 3 weeks out from surgery and walking nicely using a cane. Dr. Winger provided me options, explained the options, and made a recommendation based on my conditions. I appreciate his diligence, understanding of The Human Condition, and desire to ensure my quality of life. Dr. Winger seems to be on the Forefront of hip replacement surgery.
    Kansas City, MO |
    Professional and an extremely skilled surgeon.
    in Lenexa, KS |
    Dr. Wingerter performed a minimally invasive hip replacement that no other surgeon in our area performs yet.He was kind, listened carefully to my reservations about having the surgery, when to have it, and did not try to pressure or convince me.He offered statistics as well as experiences of others, and I opted to have the surgery earlier than I otherwise would have, to capitalize on being stronger and in better condition. Seven weeks out now, I am certain I made the best decision.He was great!
    in Leawood, KS |
    spends as little time as possible with me in the office. good surgeon. I had a quick recovery but now have an issue with one leg longer than the other.
