“Throughout my life my grandmother has been an inspiration. In addition to raising four children, she completed her law degree and dedicated herself to helping the people of Windward Oahu. The example she set led to my choice of a profession that would allow me to make a similar contribution to my community.” -Dr. Thielen
Our orthopedic surgeons, Zachary Thielen, M.D., FAAOS and JJ Eno, M.D. are Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeons and comprise a full service practice here in Wailuku, Hawaii.
Zachary Thielen, M.D., FAAOS
Dr. Thielen moved to Maui with his wife and children in 2018. He worked as an Orthopedic Surgeon with the Hawaii Permanente Medical Group from 2018 to 2021. Dr. Thielen is the first surgeon to perform and offer direct anterior total hip arthroplasty surgery on Maui. He also helped pioneer the same day discharge program for patients undergoing total joint replacement surgery at Maui Memorial Medical Center.
Dr. Eno was raised on Maui and moved back home with his wife in 2022. He started his career as an Orthopedic Surgeon with The Permanente Medical Group in San Francisco, California from 2018 to 2022. He served as a Team Physician for the Golden State Warriors from 2020-2022, Assistant Team Physician for the New York Mets from 2017-2018, and Assistant Team Physician for the Stanford University Varsity athletics during his residency training.
I was suffering from the pain on my shoulder and I couldn't lift up my arm all the way up at all. This was caused from the accident I had previously and was seeing another Orthopedic doctor on Maui. I wasn't very happy with that doctor. I heard about Dr. Eno from my friend. He didn't come up with my previous search when I had accident because his office was new to the island. I called them right away and I was able to schedule my appointment within 2 weeks and when I saw him he offered me Cortisone shot on my shoulder. If it didn't work, he was ready to operate my shoulder. 2 days after I received shot on my shoulder, Voila, I had no problem lifting my arm and no pain. I was so grateful and happy. My physical therapist who were working on my case said Dr. Eno must be really good because if he didn't give me shot at the correct area, it wouldn't have worked. I am very happy to know that there is great orthopedic doctor here on Maui now who I can trust.

I had my hip replaced by Dr. Thielen last June when he was still at Kaiser. Aside from being a highly skilled, rockstar surgeon he is incredibly down-to-earth and humble. My surgery went really well, my recovery with Swift and the quality of my life—especially in the athletic department—has improved dramatically. No more pain when deadlifting, snatching, surfing etc. Huge congratulations to Dt Theilen and his team for opening up the new practice. I highly recommend Dr Thielen and team for any orthopedic issues!

Dr. Thielen is at the top of his profession. I had anterior minimally invasive total hip replacement in my left hip. I am in my 70's. Six days after surgery I walked comfortably with only a cane. A few days later I also ditched the cane.
In addition to surgical skill, Dr. Thielen and his entire team were responsive, efficient, nice people. I never felt like "just another client."

Best Orthopedic Surgeon I have seen! Dr. Theilen has a skill that no other surgeon has. I had a total anterior hip replacement and he explained the entire process. If I had questions or concerns his staff were ready and willing to help. If you have a medical issue that requires an orthopedist, I highly recommend you to see Dr. Theilen. His bedside manner was sincere, honest and kind. If you need surgery on your hip or knee he is the doctor to see. The surgery I had went well and I was out of the hospital 4-5 hours after the surgery. It wasn't necessary to stay the night. His total hospital team is exemplary and before you know it , the surgery will be done. Do not hesitate to schedule an appointment. His office is busy but they will do everything to get you in timely to see Dr. Theilen.
