He explained the process very well as it pertained to my TKR. The staff at OrthoIndy were wonderful including my physical therapist. I love that Dr Monesmith did the DNA testing to ensure they gave me the best pain meds. And it works. Def would recommend Dr Monesmith and OrthoIndy.

I was in PAIN for over 10 years. My chiropractor got me a MRI and after seeing the Mri he got me an app.at Dr. Monesmith. I went there and talk to him , he looked at all the xrays, MRI and said I needed surgery .He said it was bad enough for a total hip replacement. So I did got a app. did the surgery on September 12 at 4:00 pm and went home September 13 by 12:00 pm the next day! And the only pain was the surgery pain all hip, knee, legg pain was GONE!! Why did I ever wait? Great hospital staff

Dr. Monesmith has replaced both of my knees.He has turned knees I could not trust into knees that allow me to walk with confidence. His knowledge and professionalism made this journey a complete sucess. His surgical talent and pain management program makes the process worth all the work. If you allow him to work his magic and follow his post surgery program you will be pleased with the outcome. Thank you Dr. Monesmith
Thank you for the review, Penny.

Dr. Monesmith listens very well, explains what is going on and how he will treat the problem. His work is outstanding! He has replaced two hips for me and I am definitely a new man since being treated by Dr. Monesmith. The entire OrthoIndy system is efficient, friendly and very good at what they do.

Dr. Monesmith explained the x-ray and condition of my hip. He was kind and attentive to my questions and answered them. He explained my choices for care now and possibilities for care in the future. I was anxious going to the appointment, but his manner put me at ease.

He knows what he is doing, and he is so nice and calming. When I do the second knee, he will be the Doctor doing it.
