Dr. Meadows did a great job on my ACL and meniscus procedure. He spent a lot of time going over the different options before surgery. I found his website to be super helpful to see what to expect week to week during my recovery.

Dr. Meadows performed a R. Shoulder label repair surgery on me and the experience was great! He answered any questions I had and I recovered within 3 months! Best orthopedist I've been to

I have been so impressed with Dr. Meadows! He repaired my torn meniscus last week and I couldn't be happier. His bedside manner is wonderful. He is personable, compassionate and kind. His surgical skills are excellent! I have very little pain from the operation and healing has gone very well. I highly recommend him as a qualified surgeon that does good work and goes the extra mile!

Dr. Meadows is very approachable and was open to my concerns. His approach to treatment seemed very conservative, not wanting to open up the hood unless he feels it absolutely necessary. Very genuine!

I waited only about 3 minutes. Dr Meadows has replaced both my knees in the last year. I could not be more happy with the results. I will recommend Dr Meadows to anyone looking for a good 'bone Dr'.

My visit as always was an enjoyable experience. I was there a little before my appointment time and was quickly taken back. Then was seen shortly after. It is always nice to know that Dr. Meadows knows that our time is valuable as well as hiss. He is always very thorough and professional but personable.

I have been to see Dr. Meadows multiple times. Klutzy me! I absolutely love the fact that Dr Meadows always looks for non-surgical appoaches to ailments. Surgery is a last result. He is very conscientious about the costs involved and works to keep them to a minimum.

I was grateful for Dr Meadows. He is professional but friendly as well. He wants to get to the bottom of what is going on. The one thing that really impressed me is he’s attempting everything before surgery. I was really relieved.

I knew I had done some cumulative damage to my shoulder over the years.It all came home when I heard my shoulder tear at the gym Dr. Meadows was referred to me by a doctor friend of mine.Right from the first visit I knew I was in good hands. He explained the damage and the proposed repair.Post op we discussed the extent of the damage being greater than expected.I did not push the shoulder and followed all PT instructions. 1 year later my shoulder is terrific. Good work Dr. Meadows!!

Dr. Meadows is an excellent surgeon with great perspective. I first went to Dr. Meadows after breaking my clavicle for the 4th time, and I wanted a second opinion. He was able to show with my x-rays the issues that I was having and how the previous doctor did things differently than he would have. In my experience he generally took a conservative approach because he is interested in your long-term health and wants to make sure you can get back to doing what you want, also avoiding future issues.

Dr. Meadows is an excellent physician /surgeon! He preformed a total knee replacement of my right knee a year ago and it has been a great result!! I just had him do a second knee replacement on my left knee!! I am so pleased with my results and the excellent service and care from Dr. Meadows!! I would very highly recommend him for any of your orthopedic needs!! A most exceptional physician! My experience with him both in the hospital and his office are nothing but positive!!!!

Dr. Meadows did an outstanding job with my diagnosis, surgery and follow-up. The outcome from hip replacement surgery was as good as it gets. In just four weeks I am almost pain free with excellent movement. The care, including the hospital stay at Lone Peak was smooth, caring and professional. I recommend Dr. Meadows, his staff and the fine treatment at Lone Peak with out reservation.

I had a severe staph infection in my right shoulder that required multiple surgeries to correct. Dr. Meadows is not only a great surgeon but listens to my concerns and worries. He explained everything in great detail so that I understood what would happen. He followed my post op care until we both were satisfied with the recovery. I highly recommend Dr. Meadows.

Dr. Meadow's did a wonderful job on my new hip. I stayed in Lone Peak Hospital overnight and when I got home I never needed a walker or crutches, they just got in the way. I can't say enough good things about him or the hospital. Lone Peak is very clean and the staff is great. The food is so good that I felt like I was in a 5 * restaurant. I had a very good experience and Dr. Meadows was a wonderful find for me.

Dr Meadows is very personable and professional. He isn’t knowledgeable and helped me get my ACL repaired along with my Meniscus. He cares about his patients and knows how to help them.
