Comments: I would definitely recommend Dr. Merkow to not only my family but anyone who is suffering from a joint issue and hasn't decided if he/she requires surgery. Dr. Merkow will make the proper assessment and provide the right advice. He is a Dr. who really cares and enjoys helping others. I recently went through hip replacement surgery at Orthopaedic Associates of Wisconsin and can't thank Dr. Merkow and his staff enough. The receptionist, nurses, anesthesiologist, and others were great!!!
