I would absolutely recommend Dr. Ehmke. The surgery resulted in a much higher quality of life, with much less post-op pain than I expected. The follow up emails were extremely helpful and motivating and the office staff could not have been more helpful, competent and knowledgeable. Special shout out to Dave Mathern, PA for thoroughly preparing me and for great follow up.

Ater a visit to Hinsdale Orthpaedics in April, I was planning to have a hip replacement sometime this year as outpatient surgery. It was done a lot sooner when I slipped, fell and broke my femur on a Sunday in early March. I had never been in the hospital or had major surgery so I it was scary and very painful. I am very fortunate and grateful that Dr. Ehmke was the surgeon available to perform the unplanned hip replacement the next day. He is very experienced, highly skilled and answered my questions in a way that instilled confidence. I had no pain after the surgery and thanks to an excellent at-home physical therapist and other therapists, I was walking without a cane after three weeks. I am very thankful for Dr. Ehmke, his staff and everyone who tended to me at the hospital. I will be back to riding horses and training dogs very soon.

Can’t begin to express how happy I am with my results of my knee revision I had done 6 weeks ago. My physical therapist told me that he hasn’t seen anyone with this procedure done that has healed so quickly along with great mobility. Exceptional work done by Dr. Ehmke and like to mention how good Dave is too with information on post op visits.
