in Jackson, MI |
Extremely professional and at the cutting edge of orthopedic medicine. I would never hesitate to recommend Dr. Mesko. He is, in my humble opinion, the best! I have interviewed Doctors, to find one I trusted with my surgeries. You could not find a finer physician. He changed my life!

He has done two knees for me! Very compassionate, very realistic tells it like it is....it's up to you after surgery! I am going to be 73 soon and wished I had seen him sooner! I would recommend him above all others....he is the best!
Lansing, MI |
Initially seemed very interested, after surgery didn't bother reading file before hand & seemed clueless to circumstances. VERY LONG WAITS (1-2 hours).
in Portland, MI |
I would recommend Dr. Mesko without hesitation to anyone. He is professional and thoroughly explained the procedure for total knee replacement. He addressed all of my concerns and answered all of my questions. At my request, he prayed with me prior to surgery. My experience with Dr. Mesko and his entire staff has been so positive, I wish I had done the replacement four years ago. I wouldn't see anyone else. I was provided with pages of information, all of which was useful.
in Lansing, MI |
After my first appointment, I find him friendly and helpful. He was recommended by both my parents and 6 other friends that have had surgery by Dr. Mesko. 100% of these people rate him the best.
in Sheridan, MI |
He is a very good doctor and certainly knows what he is doing. However, I've never been to a doctor appointment that you spend at least two and a half to three hours there. It is very frustrating to say the least. I have had four surgeries with him.
in Holt, MI |
After years of dealing with back and hip pain, not knowing why I was in so much pain, I had seen other specialists and family doctors and by accident another doctor noticed my problem after reviewing an x-ray for a different procedure, I went to Dr. Mesko's office and was told that I needed a hip replacement (needed one for quite some time). The surgery by Dr. Mesko went great and I am healing very well, I was walking around and back to work in less than 4 weeks. The results are amazing
Lansing, MI |
Dr. Mesko initially seemed interested and eager to help me when it involved surgery. After surgery when I had problems he seemed too busy to listen. He minimized my complaints of pain and when basic xrays did not show problem he dismissed my complaints without further investigation. I finally sought second opinion on my own who discovered that my hip replacement had been placed at the wrong angle and that my leg length had been made too long. As soon as it was fixed my pain was relieved.
