Dr. Ehmke is a fellowship trained joint replacement surgeon specializing in minimally invasive robotic hip and knee replacement.
Hip replacement surgery is one of the most common orthopedic surgeries performed. It involves the replacement of the damaged hip bone (ball shaped upper end of the femur) with a ceramic ball attached to a metal stem that is fixed into the femur and placing a new cup with a special liner in the pelvis.
Robotic surgery is an advancement to a traditional surgery by using a robotic system to perform the surgery. The robotic system functions as an extension of the surgeon’s hands and eyes.
