"I am 75 and walk better know than I have in the past 10 years."

"Every morning when I wake up. I thank God and Dr. Richard Meyer for no knee pain. Eight years ago I moved to New Orleans from Lafayette, La and was fortunate to meet Dr. Meyer, he was speaking at Touro about Total Knee Replacement. I had been living wth knee pain for a couple of years. I made an appointment to see hm in his office. We tried the Orthovisc injections for about five years and they helped a lot. Three years ago ha TKR on my right knee recovery was quick and not much pain. January of 2020 1 had the left knee operated on, another successful surgery. I referred my sister to Dr. Meyer, she lives in Lafayette and she had TKR on both knees, a year apart. Her surgeries were successful also. I praise Dr. Meyer and his staff every opportunity I get, not only is he an excellent surgeon but he has an amazing staff, you feel like you are their only patient. I am 75 and walk better than I have in the past 10 years. If you are thinking about TKR, my advice to you is don't pul it off. call Dr. Meyer’s office today."

"I could not be happier with the outcome.."

" I Live on the Mississippi Gull Coast and I searched East and West (from Pensacola to New Orleans) for the best Orthopedic Surgeon who was able Io perform hip surgery via the anterior method. My search showed that Doctor Meyer is unquestionably the very best in his field I was convinced of that at my first meeting with him He is a very professional physician and he was willing lo spend as much timed as I needed to have all my questions answered. Just as important to me was the fat Ina! Dr. Meyer’s staff is extremely professional. I have had one hip replaced and am waiting at this to nave he other replaced. I could not be happier with the outcome so far."

"I was able to do some things l was not able to do for a long time. Thanks Dr. Meyer"

" I had my replacement right knee surgery in 2016 and for 3 years I complained about the pain and swelling to the surgeon who performed the surgery. His response was that it takes a long time to heal for some people. The advice of my pastor at a church meeting on Tuesday night was to get a second opinion by Dr. Richard Meyer. I went home to view Dr. Richard Meyer's website and was able to request an appointment. Then early next morning I was contacted by Dr. Meyer's office and was given an appointment for the coming Monday. It was the fastest I was able to get an appointment. That Monday at the appointment I was greeted by his courteous staff. My wait to see Dr. Meyer was a very short time. Dr. Meyer put my right leg in different positions and he asked me where the pain was. I told him it was at the top of the knee. Dr. Meyer said that he was certain that my knee cap was too thick but he had to take x rays to confirm his diagnosis. Dr. Meyer was correct. The surgery was scheduled in a couple of weeks and after the physical therapy was completed I was able to do some things l was not able to do for a long time. Thanks to my pastor and Dr. Meyer I am doing very well."

"A very pleasant experience... He definitely gets a thumbs up from me!"

"I have been a patent of Dr Meyer since 2010 He did a total replacement of my left knee. Since then he replaced my right knee that had been replaced by another physician in 2016 (original one had a mechanical flaw in t). We also did a modification on that one several years later. Dr Meyer Is very personable and informative taking time to explain and to listen and answer any questions or concerns you have. You never felt rushed and his staff are friendly and helpful. There was never along wait usually being seen in an acceptable manner. While in the hospital the support staff were he same and Dr Meyer completed the surgery as scheduled. The scheduling of the surgery, set up of the wing the surgery is in and the in hospital rehab and support from both the staff and tho doctor leads to a very pleasant experience if doing a knee replacement can be. I have recommended him to others and will continue to use him as needed. He definitely gets a thumbs up from me!"

"Dr Meyer is an extremely talented surgeon...He's my hero!"

"After selling everything in Northern Ca with plans to travel tor 3 years,my husband and I arrIved in a 5th wheel on the Gulf Coast ofMississippi in Oct 2017 I was experiencing some pain in my left hip which had been replaced in March of 2015 in Southern Oregon. I was very shocked to learn In Nov 2017, the left hip was diagnosed as being loose. and needed to be re-done. We knew nothing of any Orthopedic Drs on the Gulf Coast in MS who did an anterior approach for h[p replacement I had a posterior approach on my right hip in 2007. and the left hip was done anterior in 2015, I knew the anterior approach was the belter way for me. And n was recommended l would rehab belter in a regular house instead of a 5th wheel. After many months of searching through other Otho Drs. I was finally referred to Dr Meyer. After completing several months of PT, it was determined that the left hip would definitely need to be re-done. Dr. Meyer completed the left hip re-do in mid-January 2020, and the physical recovery has been amazingly easy and rapid. Due to Covid-19 restrictions beginning almost immediately following this replacement re-do, and some other. unrelated health issues. I have been unable to do PT specifically for this hip However, the continued ease of recovery with the re-done hip has completely convinced me that Dr. Meyer is one extremely talented surgeon that I would highly recommend for surgeries needing a very experienced physician He’s my hero."

"I could not be happier with the results..."

"I have been a patient of Dr. Meyer's for a number of years. I recently had a total knee replacement Dr Meyer had replaced both of my wife's knees with excellent results. As an avid golfer. I was a little apprehensive about having the surgery. but he fully explained the procedure and made me comfortable with the process. That is the reason I travelled from Florida to have Dr Meyer perform the surgery. I could not be happier with the results and just 5 weeks after surgery I am enjoying the putting greens and driving range and looking forward to resuming regular play."
