I have already recommended him to people with bad knees. He is a very good surgeon and listens to the patient. And explains things in a way we can understand. My recovery went very well. So did PT. If I ever need the left knee replaced, I know whom to call.

Everyone is very friendly, kind and professional. Wait time was short and I was taken immediately for my X-ray. The only problem I have is that the room I waited in was rather cold.

Dr.Ehmke is very kind and caring. He explains everything. I have had a few steroid injections with him, and followed him to his new practice for a knee and a hip replacement. Both of which were uneventful, carefully planned.

I would recommend Dr. Ehmke with high regards. My hip replacement has been very successful due to Dr. Ehmke, LaGrange Hospital, and Hinsdle Orthopaefic’s therapy. Dr. E has always made an atmosphere of hope and confidence. I am very grateful that he was my physician.

I visited Dr. Ehmke this week. My left knee is hosed. He agreed to replace it. However, he only does the Conformis knee one day out of the month which resulted in serious scheduling conflicts. I am very sold on the Conformis knee. That is how I found Dr. Ehmke - on the Conformis website. Now lets add insult to injury. I have dealt with pain in my right knee for 17 years. He seems unwilling to fix my right knee.

Dr Ehmke has been excellent at informing of details of my condition and his surgical procedures. He has been patient in explaining details and cooperative in answering my questions. I have not felt as rushed with him as I have with other surgeons.
