Dr. Zehnder did an awesome job on my shoulder! Tied it back together & it's almost good as new!
in St Louis, MO |
I started with Dr. Zehnder in August 2014. He showed excellent care and empathy through a broken leg, two broken shoulders, and a knee replacement. He is excellent at explaining what and why he is doing what he is doing and my surgery was a complete success. I could not be happier with him or the results of his care. I would not only recommend him to friends, family, I would urge them to see him.

Dr Zehnder performed my ACL surgery back in April. From the initial consultation to the procedure itself to all the follow-ups, he has been fabulous at explaining what needed to be done, reviewing all the steps, addressing my concerns, and being careful not to push me too hard but at the same time pushing me to make sure I healed quickly and properly. I highly recommend him for any procedure like this.

Great job with my knee. Replacement Thanks Judy tarrant
in St. Louis |
Everyone in this office is friendly and efficient, including the doctor himself. I was in and out of there on both of my appointments. They set up my MRI appointment for me and dealt with my insurance company for me as well. I would highly recommend Dr. Zehnder and his staff.

I found the staff to very friendly and encouraging. As always, the culture starts at the top. Dr. Scott Zehender was very engaging. Extremely professional but personal as well. All were very respectful of my time and made me feel as though I was their only patient.
in Ballwin MO |
Dr. Zehnder is an excellent surgeon. I had a torn rotator cuff and had quite a bit of pain and after a thorough examination his recommendation was to have surgery. He very clearly explained the good and the potetialy the bad and my discomfort was well worth the "gamble." The surgery couldn't have gone any better. I had a rapid PT recovery - 3 months - was just about perfect. It's now 5 months later and I just played 36 holes of golf over the weekend. He did a wonderful job and I did my part - PT

Dr. Scott Zehnder is an excellent orthopedic surgeon. I have confidence in his knowledge, skills, and trust him. Since my left hip replacement surgery in January 2017 I feel my quality of life getting better. He is sincere and caring and I am happy that he is my doctor. Connie Nagle

The visit with Dr. Zehnder was refreshing, especially when compared to the other doctor offices we visited. He is kind, caring, knowledgeable, respectful and helpful. He treated us as human beings and his humble nature was calming and reassuring. He asked questions to gather information and listened well. He explained everything in a manner that we didn't need a M.D. to interpret. We left with options to consider and a plan for healing until we have made a decision regarding next steps.
in Eureka, Mo |
I had been struggling with shoulder and bicep issues for about 8 months. Another doctor had performed surgery but issues persisted. I could not lift my arm above my head. I scheduled an appt with Dr. Zehnder and he recommended a second operation to scope the shoulder. Within 3 weeks after surgery I had full range of motion. I would recommend Dr. Zehnder to anyone who has shoulder or bicep tendon issues. He did a great job resolving my issues and I'm now back in the gym working out.
in Hermann, MO |
Dr. Scott W. Zehnder is a wonderful doctor. Besides being extremely nice, he is generous with his time and expertise. He is easy to talk to and is able to explain things so you can understand them. It's not all medical jargon that is hard to understand, unlike other doctors. I have all the confidence in the world in him.
in St Louis, MO |
Dr. Zehnder is a highly professional, skilled surgeon. He was friendly, approachable and very encouraging with my surgery and recovery. His staff was wonderful as well!
in St Louis, MO |
He was great and very helpful! He really takes his time and cares about his patients!
in Wildwood, MO |
I fractured my right ankle and Dr. Zehnder repaired it surgically with a plate and seven screws. Being advanced in years, he was very thorough in explaining the entire procedure and answered all of my questions. I found Dr. Zehnder to be knowledgeable, caring and the ultimate professional.
in Saint Louis, MO |
Dr. Zehnder was thorough in his diagnosis and treatment. I would recommend him.
in Saint Louis, MO |
I needed two surgeries on one of my knees. One to repair a bucket handle tear and a follow up to have a cadaver tendon replace a torn ACL. Dr. Zehnder took the time to explain the process in a way that was very easy to understand. He provided me with options that were available and the pros and cons of those options. Then, he offered his medical opinion. Punctuality is a pet-peeve of mine. When an appointment is set, be there and he did just that. He was on time, courteous, and knowledgeable.
St Louis, MO |
I saw Dr. Scott Zehnder months ago after a seizure when my shoulder popped out. I have had many seizures since our first appointment and each time my shoulder popped out and slipped back in on its own. He did not order a new MRI after the latest shoulder incidents and he told me his best guess was instability and lack of strength. He shot me with cortisone and I was in terrible pain for days and it did nothing to help. I had back pain and researched it was from that shot. FIND A DIFFERENT DR.
in Eureka, mo |
The entire experience was great. Dr. Zehnder, his nurse, and the x-ray tech were all compassionate, knowledgable and friendly. They all appeared happy doing their jobs!
New York, NY |
He was rude and late. He had zero compassion for caring for my needs.
in St Louis, MO |
He was prompt, kind, caring, and an excellent doctor. High praise from me who has had many bad experiences in the medical profession.
