I’m Kenneth Gustke MD, and I practice at the Florida Orthopaedic Institute. My specialty is in adult reconstruction of the hip and knee, which primarily is the treatment of patients with severe arthritic deformities of the hip and the knee. Personally, I have been practicing for over 30 years. When I became exposed to arthritis and, and hip replacement and knee replacement surgery back in its infancy, it just struck my interest as an amazing procedure. I’ve always been a person who liked to use my hands and build things and my number one dedication is to be able to provide better care for my patients personally. But I have also had the ability through designing total knee replacement and total hip replacement implants, of which I’ve designed many of them. There’s been over hundreds of thousands of patients in the United States and throughout the world that have the implants in that, I’ve personally helped design for an orthopedic trade magazine called Orthopedics This Week. I was named within the top 21 hip surgeons in the United States. I want to keep being able to sort of push the envelope and make things even better for my patients and other patients throughout the world.
