in Bradenton, FL |
Dr. Lamar is a personable and skilled surgeon. He takes considerable time on the front end to discuss the situation, present options , and recommends surgery only if conditions warrant. He requires extra attention before surgery to minimize the chance of infection and post operative problems. His follow up process with himself and his excellent PA is excellent.

In the year 2013 I fell down while dancing and was told that I had fractured the round ball on my hip joint. That the longer part of the joint did not need to be replaced. Dr. Lamar was the surgeon that was assigned to do the surgery. It is 2016 and I have had constant pain most of the time. X-rays showed no problem, but the pain was constant. My primary Dr. treated the pain with meds. Now in the year 12-2016 an x-ray has shown that the implant has processed. I need surgery & it will be done

Dr Lamar was very approachable, easy to schedule an appointment and easy to talk to. This was also true for everyone I encountered in his office.

From the initial consult to the post op (total hip replacement) visit, and every contact with hospital staff at every level in between, I was treated with respect, empathy, and the perfect blend of seriousness and humor. The surgical and healing model developed by Dr. Lamar and his professional staff leads to a quicker and healthier recovery than was expected just a couple years ago. I was doing laps around the ortho floor with a cane the afternoon of my surgery and was discharged the next AM.

Dr. Lamar is a good surgeon - Number 1. My experience with him was informative, caring & encouraging when I saw him for the first time to discuss the real possibility of a hip replacement. I was an OR nurse so had some real concerns as I had many times been in the OR, but not as a patient. He was thorough in his explanation of the procedure and comforting to me as I voiced how scared I was to be the patient this time. My recovery was great & I owe a lot of that to the fact that I had a good Dr.

The Doctor came well recommended. I went for my operation with there following items: A positive attitude, a well recommended Doctor, an outstanding Physical Therapy department and a Coach (my Wife). The outcome was as expected, out of the hospital tn two night, a graduation from therapy on time and I was way ahead of others that were operated on about the same time. Driving early, biking in less than three weeks and into the pool when authorized. Now scheduled for the left knee!!!!
in Sarasota, FL |
From the minute I arrived in Dr. Lamar's office I was treated with kindness, professionalism. I was completely satisfied with Dr. Lamar's care of me. I had two knee replacements that were done wonderfully. I was back to work with my first knee surgery in 3 weeks and my second knee surgery I was back to work in 2 and a half weeks. I have told all my friends that are thinking about having knee surgery or need to see an Orthopedic to see Dr. Lamar at Coastal Orthopedics. He is the best! ?
