Dr. Gregory J Schmeling has the following 2 specialties

  • Trauma Surgery

    Trauma surgeons treat patients who come to emergency rooms and require surgery after any kind of accident. They know how to act quickly, assess the patient’s condition, and decide on a course of action. They work fast to coordinate with other physicians and specialists in the hospital if needed, such as neurosurgeons and radiologists, so they can properly diagnose the injury and stabilize patients.
    Common trauma injuries include bleeding, burns, brain or other internal injuries, shock and loss of limbs. Because they treat patients in traumatic situations, they’re also typically skilled in offering some level of emotional support to help the patient cope with confusion and grief that may result from their accident.

Calcaneal Fracture

I suffered a fractured calcaneal bone. Dr. Schmeling was very matter of fact about the injury and prognosis. I asked if I would be able to run again and he told me the odds were very slim if I had corrective surgery and zero if I did not. All I can say is he is a very gifted surgeon because less than 4 months after surgery I am running on a treadmill and will compete in a 5k before the end of the month. I followed his instructions to a tee and can say the results have exceeded my wildest expectations.

Lower leg amputation

Full of himself, obnoxious, acts like he doesn't care. lack of in depth visual examination, denied nerve pain medication and would rather have patient suffer, needs aggressive communication to rehab dept.for prompt therapy to receive prosthetic , does not listen and tells patient how they feel after traumatic experience, refused MRI of injured remaining leg, does not finish the job. Impossible to contact regarding serious concerns/questions. More interested in having students trip over him. Froedtert in general is a nightmare.

Five Stars

My daughter broke her leg and was treated by Dr Schmeling. He was very detailed in the procedure information and very caring. He tried his best to get her up and walking for her graduation a few weeks later. His staff was also wonderful. If you have to have something like this happen, Dr Schmeling and his team are the right choice to "fix" the problem.
