Robert J. Zehr, MD is a board certified, fellowship trained orthopaedic surgeon and the founder of The Zehr Center for Orthopaedics, a private orthopaedic surgery practice located in Naples, FL. Specifically he specializes in hip and knee replacement surgery, complex revision joint surgery, knee arthroscopy and skeletal tumor and trauma reconstruction. Dr. Zehr has over 25 years of orthopaedic experience in complex skeletal and joint reconstruction and rehabilitation. Prior to being sent to southwest Florida in 1998 to help develop the Cleveland Clinic Naples, Dr. Zehr was the Head of Orthopaedic Oncology for The Cleveland Clinic Foundation where he came on staff after a prestigious fellowship in orthopaedic oncology at the University of Florida and his residency training at The Cleveland Clinic Foundation. Further career success was achieved while an attending physician at the Cleveland Clinic Naples, where Dr. Zehr distinguished himself as its Executive Director, Chief of Staff and Head of Orthopaedic Surgery while maintaining a full and thriving surgical practice. Dr. Zehr began his new venture into solo orthopaedic practice in late 2007. Although it is extremely important to know where your surgeon trained and his years of experience, it is perhaps more important to know what his peers and patients think of him. By virtue of the many awards and honors of recognition that have been bestowed upon Dr. Zehr consistently through the years, you can be confident that the many patients who have gone before you are extremely satisfied with their care. In addition, most of these accolades are achieved through peer nomination where the many physicians who have selected Dr. Zehr for these awards were asked "to whom would they send their own family?" In the tradition of superior care, Robert J. Zehr, MD was recognized by one of the most distinguished physician rating services in the country, "Best Doctors, Inc." to be included in the Best Doctors in America 2014-2015 database. This annual list is compiled from surveys of physicians asking them who they would go to for treatment in their specialty. Only those who earn the consensus support of their peers are included. For this reason, inclusion in the Best Doctors in America database is a remarkable honor. Dr. Zehr has been recognized nationally by Castle-Connolly Medical, Ltd-- publishers of "America's Top Doctors" as one of the top treating orthopaedic surgeons in Southwest Florida for 17 consecutive years. He has also been rated nationally as one of "America's Top Orthopedists" for the years 2002-2015 by Consumer's Research Council of America, a Washington, D.C. based research organization. Locally, in the Southwest Florida community Dr. Zehr has been honored as one of only a select few orthopaedic surgeons to be awarded the Gulf Shore Life Magazine's "Top Doctors" distinction for the years 2004-2015. Gulfshore Life magazine partners with Castle Connolly Medical in New York to develop a list of only the top-tier doctors in each specialty, that is, those physicians most highly recommended in Collier, Lee and Charlotte counties each year. His extensive experience as leader, researcher and surgeon keeps Dr. Zehr in high demand as a speaker locally, nationally and internationally. He has spoken, operated or taught in Germany, Italy, Canada and Great Britain. He has written extensively on skeletal reconstruction, but enjoys educating individual patients on their specific orthopaedic problems. He is a Fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgeons, a member in good standing in the Florida Orthopaedic Society, the Musculoskeletal Tumor Society, the Florida Medical Society and the Collier County Medical Society.
