Paul Enker, M.D. Board-Certified Orthopaedic Surgeon

The hallmark of Dr. Enker’s practice is individualized and compassionate care that incorporates the latest scientific methods that are proven and consensus-based approaches for the treatment of hip and knee arthritis.

“Each person who comes to my office is unique, and my goal is to restore my patients’ quality of life with the least amount of risk,” said Dr. Enker.  

Driven to improve patient outcomes, Dr. Enker pioneered the minimally invasive hip replacement procedure, the direct anterior approach, and introduced it to Long Island more than eleven years ago. He's performed more than 1000 anterior approach surgeries. Learn more about this procedure.
