Knee Replacement by Naples’ Leading Orthopaedic Surgeon
Don’t be afraid to take the next step toward relieving your knee pain. Knee replacement surgery is really quite common. It is estimated that more than 700,000 Americans underwent this highly successful operation last year to relieve the pain of an arthritic knee joint. Over the past 25 years, Dr. Robert Zehr has performed thousands of joint replacement surgeries. He specializes in hip and knee replacement in his Naples practice. Dr. Zehr uses highly sophisticated computer-assisted technology to assure proper alignment and balance. He performs knee replacement in Naples using a minimally invasive, quadriceps-sparing approach, which results in less pain and faster healing for his patients. It is estimated that only 20% of orthopaedic surgeons use this approach, as it requires additional training and exceptional skills. Dr. Zehr’s fit and healthy patients are usually able to return to normal activities such as golf, biking, swimming, doubles tennis, and long distance walking in just 4-6 weeks after knee replacement in Naples.
