About the Surgeons
Dr. Thomas Eickmann began performing hip and knee replacements at The Surgery Center at Lutheran as a 23-hour stay in February 2012, and a year later began sending his patient’s home the same day as surgery. “It doesn’t matter how old you are, just how healthy you are,” Dr. Eickmann said.
Dr. Ian Weber was the Director of the Rapid Knee and Hip Recovery Program at the Kearney Regional Medical Center in Nebraska and was performing about 500 joint replacements per year. “I love returning patients back to the active lifestyle they desire, and will consider all options with patients,” Dr. Weber said.
