Dr. Carreira, Having been threw many orthopedic injuries and many surgeries from college until now,Dr carriera has not only the extensive knowledge and publications that most all look to for advice, but he is incredibly approachable, kind and a bed side manner like I haven’t seen before ! He truly cared....He called my home personally to see how I was after the surgery. 6 months later I feel like new and pain free I will fly to see him again it was well worth it ! Thank you doc ! JW

Dr. Carreira repaired a torn labrum in my left hip. He was fantastic to work with! Showed me all my choices to fixing the situation. Laid out exactly how the surgery would go. No issues at all with the surgery, everything went smoothly and exactly as planned. The recovery has also been right on track. He clear and concise instructions for the physical therapist helped to make the recovery smooth and effective. I could not have asked for a better surgeon!
in Ft. Lauderdale, FL |
Without Dr. Carreira's expertise and skill, I was facing a life with limited mobility because of recurring ankle injuries and a misalignment of my heel. Thanks to Dr. Carreira and his staff's care with the extensive ankle surgery, removal of a shredded tendon, and repair of my Achilles, I am not only walking without a limp, but I am dancing again in four months! Another big asset was Tom Green, the PA, who responded to my texts even on the weekends. He kept my concerns at bay.
in Pompano Beach, FL |
The doctor took great care of my son, which I knew he would as I work with Dr. Carriera at BHIP. I have had the opportunity to see him work and to see him interact with his surgical patients. Dr. Carriera is as compassionate as he is knowledgeable in his field.
in Ft Lauderdale, FL |
I experienced a tibia break. My wife found Dr Carreira. We both found the experience professional, experienced and very personal. I would have to say that out of all the professional medical procedures i have incured, this group handeled me the best. Highly recommend anyone to this group.
in Stuart, FL |
I did not do my homework initially and my Achilles ruptured as a result of an inadequate surgery by a doctor in Stuart. The second surgery needed to be done by the best so I went to all the top foot docs in the area as well as the Miami Heat, Orlando Magic, and the J ville Jags foot docs. I chose Dr Carreira because of his honesty and professionalism. He did a great job and did a repair others said could not be done or refused to do because of the condition my foot was left in after surgery1.
in Ft Lauderdale, FL |
Dr.Carreira is the best physician I have ever encountered across all branches of medicine. Very knowledgeable and willing to explain and answer all questions with pleasure. I had sustained an ankle fracture 3 years ago in which he operated on with perfect success. Last year I needed some bone spurs removed and I asked him to remove all the hardware on that same ankle. Long story short he was able to guide me through recovery currently leaving my ankle stronger than before the original fracture.
in Coral Springs, FL |
I felt Dr. Carreira was very down to earth and easy to talk to. He examined me and explained all of my options so that I fully understood him. I really liked him and that is so important to me. I would gladly recommend him to my friends.
Stuart, FL |
We personally want to thank Dr. Carreira and his staff members for getting us through our daughter's hip surgery with ease and success. We are not only pleased with the excellent medical service but also for the courteous and friendly manner in which we were treated. We highly recommend Dr. Carreira and his staff for any orthopedic needs.
in Ft Lauderdale, FL |
After shattering my ankle, I was very worried if I would walk normally again and because I am diabetic, I was concerned about healing. Dr. Carreira spent time with me explaining the necessary procedures he needed to do during surgery. Not only did he have me walking very quickly but he monitiored my healing due to the diabetes. I have no problems now and heartily recommend Dr. Carreira to anyone that has broken their ankle. Excellent orthopedic surgeon!!!
in Ft Lauderdale, FL |
He is very knowledgeable and an excellent surgeon. I have a rare condition which made my surgery more difficult than anticipated. Dr. Carreira still managed to align the bones and repair the surrounding soft tissue to correct the defect. His staff is also very pleasant and helpful.
Miami, FL |
Disappointed in his overall demeanor. Thought highly of him in 2012 but seams to have lost his compassion since he left Broward Health. Lack of communication overall
in Pompano Beach, FL |

ANY BOBY THAT NEEDS HELP WITH THERE FOOT OR ANKLE THIS IS THE DOCTOR TO GO TOO BY FAR.
in Tavernier, FL |
Dr. Carreria is a very skilled surgeon, and maintains the highest standards of medical practice. His staff are well-trained and efficient. He and his staff were responsive to all of my questions and concerns. I had excellent outcomes with two surgeries, and would recommend Dr. Carreira and his staff.
in Weston, FL |
After researching a number of Orthopedic surgeons in S. FL, I was very fortunate to have found Dr. Carreira. Ordinarily, I would expect a specialist of his caliber to have a snooty attitude. But this is not at all the case with Dr. Carreira. He is kind, courteous, and has an easygoing demeanor. This comes across loud and clear as evidence of his concern for his patients. I am now 3 months out of a hip labrum repair arthroscopy, which was previously botched by another surgeon. Thank you Doctor.
in Davie, FL |
Dr. Carreira is not only brilliant, he has the bedside manner of a small town family doctor. He's thoughtful, precise, and I truly felt like he considered my case individually as opposed to being lumped in with every other similar case. His attention to detail, respectful manners, and detailed explanations were all that you hope to find in an amazing doctor. His staff is knowledgable, kind, and they prepare you mentally and physically for what would be an otherwise high stress situation.
in Miami, FL |
This is a great office. I enjoyed my visit from beginning to end. I spoke with Trini to make an appointment sns she called me back as promised. The employees are friendly and very helpful. Dr Carriera arrived ON TIME to my appointment and sat with me and discussed my options. HIs assistant Tom is a gem. I wish Dr Carriera was a general practitioner so I could recommend his as my family doctor.
Palm Harbor, FL |
Dr. Carreira performed hip surgery on our son and the entire experience from start to finish was excellent. Dr. C is extremely busy but we never felt rushed and we asked a LOT of questions. He was patient and thorough in his explanations to us. His staff was incredibly helpful, responsive and efficient even a month after surgery as we work through insurance resolutions. I can't recommend Dr. C enough.
in Hollywood, FL |
My son was recommended to Dr. Carreira a few years ago for a heel injury. The moment we met him, we felt at ease and trusted him. He is extremely calm, caring, and thorough. My son had a fracture, followed the doctors instructions and he was better in the time frame the doctor thought We came back about 3 years later with another injury on the ankle with the same great results. I went back for my foot/ankle and again very happy. The STAFF, Tom, Olga, Donna, Daniele,& others at desk are Great
in Hialeah, FL |
I waited 11 months before even going in for a consult b/c i was so scared. Staff took me in for an appt quickly, got MRI's and other tests done fast and got me in for surgery in less then a month. I was up and walking after my labrum repair in less then 2 weeks. No pain. 1 year later all is wonderful.
in Ft Lauderdale, FL |
I broke my ankle 4 years ago in Colorado. After the orthopedist in Colorado had misdiagnosed me , 4 months later I saw dr carrera. His initial words after seeing the MRI and CT SCAN were " this is going to be hard" To make a long story short , today I'm functioning fine with no pain. Others I know that had a similar surgery by someone else still have pain
in Ft Lauderdale, FL |
Great experience on for a proximal hamstring repair
in Fort Lauderdale, FL |
All aspects of Dr. Carreira's practice were fantastic. The office was clean, the staff was quick and attentive, and most importantly, the surgery that Dr. Carreira performed went so much better than I would have ever expected.
New York, NY |
This is the second place I wrote on and I never have done this . Run don't walk... He has to be the most self centered doctors with the worst bed side manner I have ever come across. He is treating my son and dealing with him and his staff has been nothing short of a nightmare. He has what I call a true god complex. He performed surgery on my son and just made this situation so much worse. Thought I would let me people know .
