Additional Information

Dr. Zehms served in the U.S. Navy for 12 years.

He was the Trauma Consultant for the Green Bay Packers and also provided coverage for the US Olympics Women’s Ski Team (2008, 2009).

 

Comprehensive Orthopedic Care (Shoulders, Elbows, Hips & Knees)
  • Arthroscopy of the hip with advanced techniques in labral repair and reconstruction (Note: Dr. Zehms is one of only two surgeons between Atlanta, Savannah and Jacksonville who perform hip arthroscopy)
  • Arthroscopic ACL reconstruction, meniscus repair and transplantation
  • Arthroscopic rotator cuff repair
  • Sports arthroscopy of the hip, shoulder, knee, elbow and ankle
  • Cartilage restoration and replacement
  • Advanced trauma/fracture repair

During my high school athletic career in cross-country and track and field at Notre Dame Academy in Green Bay, WI, I suffered several injuries that may have prevented me from continuing my goal of competing at the collegiate level. The care I received helped me return to running and is what inspired me to choose Orthopedic Sports Medicine as my speciality.  My goal is to not only help other athletes return to their sport, but also achieve and surpass the goals they’ve set for themselves. While training under one of the pioneers in hip arthroscopy, Dr. Marc Philippon at the Steadman Pilippon Sports Medicine Clinic, I learned the most advanced techniques in labral repair and reconstruction and treated members of the U.S. Ski Team, the Colorado Rockies and the Denver Broncos.

My military orthopedic experiences serving our active duty marines and sailors, both at home and in Afghanistan, have given me a very unique understanding and perspective treating complex fractures and sports related injuries in our elite special forces. After a life changing accident or injury, I hope that this experience will bring comfort to patients and their families during a very difficult time in their lives.
