I came from my home in Panama to be treated by Dr. Zehr and his wonderful staff. He replaced my left hip this time, again with minimal pain and fast recovery. His successful replacement of my right hip 5 years ago proved to me he knew his stuff. I recommend him and his staff with highest praise.

You enjoyed two of the main benefits of direct anterior approach hip replacement - minimal pain and faster recovery. We're so glad you had a safe journey home!

I had a total hip replacement. Dr. Zehr's "anterior approach" worked well for me, resulting in little post-op discomfort and a fast recovery. Also, the well organized management of the recovery process by his team was excellent. Thanks to Dr. Zehr's expertise and his team I now can walk and exercise pain-free.

I had a Total Hip Replacement performed by Dr. Zehr and his team. I have been lipping around for more than 2 years and Dr. Zehr was able to get me back to a normal life in 6 weeks. My physical therapist says it the back Dr. Zehr Anterior approach and his skill makes their job easier with great success.

Three months ago I had my second anterior hip replacement with Dr. Zehr. It seemed more successful than the first he did two years ago as I only stayed in the hospital overnight, got rid of the cane a day later and the walker was put away within a few more days. His advice (in the well written manual given to all patients their first visit) also works: "walk walk walk, PT and get off the pain medicine as soon a possible": I started walking the first day in the hospital through many corridors and got rid of the meds the following day--had a great therapist (Dr. Micheal Kris). I returned to road biking within a couple weeks but waited to drive the golf ball at least six to seven weeks which probably was not necessary as twisting was not a problem. Thank you, Dr. Zehr: you and your staff are the very best!

You are quite welcome! And thank you for the kind recommendation. We should note that your successful outcome was also due in large part to the hard work you put in with your PT. But we also want readers to know that this kind of success is enjoyed by most of our patients!

This hip replacement, being my second, far exceeds my first . The first hip replacement, NOT, performed by Dr. Zehr, was more painful and took longer to heal. ( posterior ) I would highly reccomend Dr. Zehr and his staff.

This is why we advocate using the anterior approach to total hip replacement - it is so much better for the patient!

Biography

Robert J. Zehr, MD is a board certified, fellowship trained orthopaedic surgeon and the founder of The Zehr Center for Orthopaedics, a private orthopaedic surgery practice located in Naples, FL. Specifically he specializes in hip and knee replacement surgery, complex revision joint surgery, knee arthroscopy and skeletal tumor and trauma reconstruction. Dr. Zehr has over 25 years of orthopaedic experience in complex skeletal and joint reconstruction and rehabilitation. Prior to being sent to southwest Florida in 1998 to help develop the Cleveland Clinic Naples, Dr. Zehr was the Head of Orthopaedic Oncology for The Cleveland Clinic Foundation where he came on staff after a prestigious fellowship in orthopaedic oncology at the University of Florida and his residency training at The Cleveland Clinic Foundation. Further career success was achieved while an attending physician at the Cleveland Clinic Naples, where Dr. Zehr distinguished himself as its Executive Director, Chief of Staff and Head of Orthopaedic Surgery while maintaining a full and thriving surgical practice. Dr. Zehr began his new venture into solo orthopaedic practice in late 2007. Although it is extremely important to know where your surgeon trained and his years of experience, it is perhaps more important to know what his peers and patients think of him. By virtue of the many awards and honors of recognition that have been bestowed upon Dr. Zehr consistently through the years, you can be confident that the many patients who have gone before you are extremely satisfied with their care. In addition, most of these accolades are achieved through peer nomination where the many physicians who have selected Dr. Zehr for these awards were asked "to whom would they send their own family?" In the tradition of superior care, Robert J. Zehr, MD was recognized by one of the most distinguished physician rating services in the country, "Best Doctors, Inc." to be included in the Best Doctors in America 2014-2015 database. This annual list is compiled from surveys of physicians asking them who they would go to for treatment in their specialty. Only those who earn the consensus support of their peers are included. For this reason, inclusion in the Best Doctors in America database is a remarkable honor. Dr. Zehr has been recognized nationally by Castle-Connolly Medical, Ltd-- publishers of "America's Top Doctors" as one of the top treating orthopaedic surgeons in Southwest Florida from 2004-201. He has also been rated nationally as one of "America's Top Orthopedists" for the years 2002-2015 by Consumer's Research Council of America, a Washington, D.C. based research organization. Locally, in the Southwest Florida community Dr. Zehr has been honored as one of only a select few orthopaedic surgeons to be awarded the Gulf Shore Life Magazine's "Top Doctors" distinction for the years 2004-2015. Gulfshore Life magazine partners with Castle Connolly Medical in New York to develop a list of only the top-tier doctors in each specialty, that is, those physicians most highly recommended in Collier, Lee and Charlotte counties each year. His extensive experience as leader, researcher and surgeon keeps Dr. Zehr in high demand as a speaker locally, nationally and internationally. He has spoken, operated or taught in Germany, Italy, Canada and Great Britain. He has written extensively on skeletal reconstruction, but enjoys educating individual patients on their specific orthopaedic problems. He is a Fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgeons, a member in good standing in the Florida Orthopaedic Society, the Musculoskeletal Tumor Society, the Florida Medical Society and the Collier County Medical Society.
