Your hips and knees are so crucial to your quality of life that even the slightest stiffness can affect your movements and therefore your ability to enjoy life. That’s why Robert J. Zehr, M.D. founded the Zehr Center for Orthopaedics, specializing in hips and knees.
Board-certified and fellowship-trained, Dr. Zehr is Southwest Florida’s most experienced surgeon in the direct anterior approach to total hip replacement. He has performed more than 1,800 surgeries using this technique, including Southwest Florida’s first same-day outpatient total hip replacement. He performed this history-making operation at Seaside Surgery Center, Southwest Florida’s only facility designed and built for outpatient total joint replacements, which he co-founded.
For patients with knee osteoarthritis, the answer to your pain may be in the revolutionary alpha-2-macroglobulin therapy. The first truly biologic treatment for osteoarthritis of the knee, A2M therapy is available in Southwest Florida only at the Zehr Center for Orthopaedics.
For partial knee replacement, Dr. Zehr uses the surgeoncontrolled Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery System, which employs highly sophisticated technology available for providing the most precise placement of knee implants.
After completing his residency at The Cleveland Clinic Foundation in Ohio, Dr. Zehr joined the staff of that prestigious facility in 1992. In 1998, he was tapped to serve as the medical director and head of orthopedic surgery at Cleveland Clinic’s Naples location and eventually became its executive director. When the Clinic departed Naples, Dr. Zehr remained and opened his private practice.
A consistent award-winner with over 30 years’ experience, Dr. Zehr ranks among the top doctors in Southwest Florida. The Zehr Center for Orthopaedics was established to provide the world-class medical care.
