I saw Dr. Lyle near the end of April. He had x-rays done of my hip. Saw that I had AVN in final stages and in less than 2 weeks I got a new left hip. I had been unable to walk for 5 months. Using a wheelchair and hurting every day. The day of surgery when I woke up the pain was gone. I had surgical pain but no hip pain. It has been so wonderful. Dr. Lyle took the time to talk with me and answer all my questions.

Dr.Lyle has been a very positive experience.He was on call in the ER when I arrived after having a fall and diagnosed with a fractured femur.His bedside manner was very pleasant and his attitude very positive.He was very attentive and took his time addressing my concerns and has continued to do so with every appointment thereafter.My surgery,done the following morning,I feel was skillfully done..very clean,precise with no resulting inflammation or infection.I healed very quickly.

I have already recommended Dr. Lyle to my brother and he agrees with me that Dr. Lyle is a fantastic surgeon. I had fallen from a ladder back in October and broke my ankle and crushed my heel in 10 pieces. To say the least I won the "Bone Yard" award for the most broken bones in my foot/heel. Dr. Lyle performed surgery on my foot and had to put the 10 pieces back together to repair my heel and I have a plate with 7 screws for the rest of my foot. Thankful to him I am walking again 2-20-17.

I broke my left wrist on March 21, 2016. Dr. Lyle was the Orthopedist on call in the emergency room at East Alabama Medical Center. Thus began a great relationship between Doctor and patient. He was always courteous, engaging, competent and friendly: so was his staff. When I asked him to, he provided an explanation of what he was about to do. I had a great deal of trust in his opinions/decisions and so did my husband. His office was always inviting with great positive statements on his wall.

Dr. Lyle is absolutely the best left work at noon on 6/24/16 due to my left knee swelling up Dr. Lyle's office got me in immediately, we did xrays and Mri and found out I needed another surgery for as in April of this year Dr. Lyle performed surgery on my right knee. He has the patients problems and concerns at heart and listens and then does what is necessary to get the patient up and going again. Wonderful Bed side manners. Love This Man along with Gods guidance. Keep up the great work.

My husband had knee replacement surgery in January and Dr. Lyle did a GREAT job. His recovery was very successful and Dr. Lyle was very encouraging and most supportive during his rehab. We are very pleased with the success and ease of the operation. I had to have a cyst removed from my thumb in March and the scar and recovery was FANTASTIC. We are very pleased with concern and compassionate way Dr. Lyle has given us with both our surgeries. We are Blessed to have him in our community.

I had a Monteggia fracture, an ulna break and radius dislocation. This is a difficult surgery, but Dr. Lyle did not get it quite right. The surgery requires plating of the ulna fracture. The ulna feels too long and now my wrist pops and aches. After three years, the arm still aches a lot. During our last office visit, x-rays showed a non-union in the fracture. Dr. Lyle shrugged and said that it would probably heal over time. I can use my arm, but it is weaker even though it is my dominant arm.
in Dadeville, AL |
After moving from Huntsville Al to Dadeville, Al. I was is dire need for an orthopedic doctor to assess my knee situation. Dr. Lyle was most helpful and courteous. After trying different options Dr. Lyle said a knee replacement was the next step. So a year ago I had the surgery and now I have zero pain. I am able to assume my normal activities and continue to walk and exercise everyday. The only regret is I waited way too long to have it done!

Absolutely recommend Dr Lyle. Patience kind knowledgeable. The Best. I told him to never lose that bedside manner he has with patients.i found him through Internet search and I say I just got lucky by finding him.
in Auburn, AL |
Dr. Lyle has been very attentive to my ongoing orthopedic problems. My family and I have trusted his decisions and I have continued to follow his advise. I research all I can about the issues that continue to bother me and Dr. Lyle's treatment plans have been right in line with medical research involving the numerous problems I have encountered and are continuing to encounter. His surgery had been praised by other Doctors I have encountered since this all began - Doctors throughout the SEast.
