Experienced Naples Orthopedic Surgeon
Masters Advanced Techniques

Our founder, Robert J. Zehr, MD, has dedicated his professional education and career to the research, understanding and care of some of the most complex orthopaedic problems in the field including primary and revision total joint replacement, as well as skeletal reconstruction associated with tumors. A nationally and internationally recognized author, lecturer and teacher, Dr. Zehr has been privileged to instruct dozens of U.S. and foreign surgeons who visit him in the operating room to observe various surgical techniques and rehabilitation protocols.

With the experience of over 6000 primary, revision and complex joint reconstructions to call upon, Dr. Zehr brings the most up to date surgical techniques, patient safety and knowledge of rehabilitation to each patient's surgical problem. In addition, his mastery of minimally invasive surgical techniques, rapid recovery rehab protocols and shortened hospital stays has resulted in greatly improved surgical outcomes, fewer complications and highly satisfied patients. This depth of experience with the most complicated cases gives you, our patient, the confidence and encouragement you will need when considering orthopaedic surgery. Robert J. Zehr, MD is one of the best hip replacement, knee replacement and orthopedic surgeons in Naples, FL and the United States.

Notably, after spending nearly 20 years with the world renowned Cleveland Clinic Foundation, both in Cleveland and in Naples, FL - Dr. Zehr has come to appreciate the high expectations of patients who sought the intensity, innovation and advanced care provided at this prestigious organization. This institution's departure from Southwest Florida  left a void for those who demand and deserve this level of world class health care. To help fill this void, the Zehr Center for Orthopaedics was founded with the understanding, experience and willingness to reach farther and ascend higher to make a difference in the lives of our patients. This, after all, is the essence of world class medical care.

It remains the passion of our clinical team to focus our professional priority upon the most important purpose for our existence - YOU!
