Absolute Godsend

I was referred to Dr Gegenheimer by ER Dr. I met Dr. Gegenheimer I have extreme anxiety but I was comfortable with him and did not feel like a rushed number and told him my finger wasn't my only ailment and he checked even my other issues which I would have to be seen for thoroughly at a later time focus was getting surgery for the finger and what beautiful work...you could never even tell there had been a cyst there much less surgery. My chronic issue I am in therapy for and that seems to be going very well feels I am getting stronger and other issues resolving as well.

Amazing Surgeon!

In 2005 Dr Gegenheimer performed emergency surgery on my husband left elbow after falling off a roof. He did an amazing job . When I broke my ankle in 2012 and needed surgery, I knew who to call. Dr Gegenheimer performed the surgery and fixed my ankle and yes he fixed it so good that barely a scar and I can wear heels!

Gifted

It's been my pleasure to be treated by Dr Alan Gegenheimer Since 2002. Previously with Adult & Pediatric Orthopedics in Vernon Hills Illinois, he has recently moved his practice to United Bone And Joint out Gurnee Illinois and Pleasant Prairie Wisc. Thirteen years later, four surgeries and several orthopedic consults / treatments I am healthy and pain free. Dr Alan Gegenheimer is truly a gifted surgeon and doctor. He is innovative and diverse. On a scale of one to ten, Dr G's bedside manner is a ten. I highly recommend this most qualified orthopedic surgeon.
