“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.”
In the search for the ever elusive pinnacle of excellence in health care, The Zehr Center for Orthopaedics is forever seeking new techniques, new systems, and new clinical pathways to provide our patients with the absolute best orthopaedic care that can be obtained anywhere. Over the years, Dr. Zehr has seen many health care systems, surgical procedures, and hospital programs from which he has synthesized the best practices into what is arguably the finest way to provide modern orthopaedic joint surgery. From the office setting, through pre-op conditioning, through surgery and the hospital stay, to full recovery, the patient remains fully informed, involved, and reassured the entire way through this journey into a relative unknown.
Orthopaedic Center of Excellence
Dr. Zehr designed, refined, and directed the Orthopaedic Center of Excellence at the Cleveland Clinic Florida Naples until the departure of this prestigious institution from the Southwest Florida area. Although this program no longer exists, the fundamental and unique elements of this nationally and internationally visited program are in large part intact at the Zehr Center for Orthopaedics and at The Joint Care Center at Landmark Hospital of Southwest Florida, where Dr. Zehr currently performs joint replacement procedures. Although some aspects of this program are in redevelopment, the quest for excellence is an unending and integral part of our mission and is, indeed, our habit!
Included below is a link to a video of the Orthopaedic Center of Excellence as it existed under the direction of Dr. Robert Zehr. Please understand that this video is offered merely as a testimonial to the dedication of the many members of the professional staff who made this center one in which patient care was unparalleled in its excellence and one to which patients gave constantly superior ratings and thanks.
