Dr Ehmke is a fellowship trained joint replacement surgeon specializing in minimally invasive robotic hip and knee replacement. He did his fellowship at the world renowned Rubin Institute of Advanced Orthopedics in Baltimore, MD.
Direct anterior hip replacement is a minimally invasive hip surgery to replace the hip joint without cutting through any muscles or tendons as against traditional hip replacement that involves cutting major muscles to access the hip joint.
Outpatient Hip & Knee Replacement is now a viable option for qualified patients. With the introduction of minimally invasive techniques, modern pain protocols, improved anesthetic techniques, and rapid rehabilitation protocols, Dr. Ehmke can perform joint replacement procedures on an outpatient basis.
Robotic-assisted hip & knee replacement surgery is performed using robotic-arm technology that allows your surgeon to precisely perform the surgery through a smaller incision as compared to traditional surgery. Benefits include precise placement of the implant, reduced injury to adjacent tissues, faster recovery, and increased longevity of the implant.
