Dr. Mark Meier, MD
You might say that orthopedics is in my blood, my Dad was the first orthopedic surgeon in Southwest Georgia. I feel so fortunate to have been able to learn from him. I scrubbed in on one of the first total hips done in my home town approximately 45 years ago. Things have certainly changed since then. Hip replacement then usually involved a large incision and a 10 day hospital stay; whereas today, with minimally invasive techniques, people usually go home the day after surgery. Similar advancements have been made in knee replacement as well. My family and I moved to Boise in 1992 after I finished my trauma fellowship at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. I began my practice in Boise doing complex orthopedic trauma of the hip and knee. I've always had an interest in joint replacement and over the last 10 years have dedicated myself primarily to hip and knee replacement.

DR. Mark Meier is an amazing surgeon and works tirelessly to maintain the highest standards. He has a close knit team that surrounds him, nurses to physical therapists, that run like a finely tuned Olympic team. Dr. Mark performed my second knee surgery, and from operation to recovery the whole experience went so much smoother. I am very grateful.

I meet with Dr. Meier while I was at the Elks Rehab Hospital. He's an excellent surgeon and a great guy.

I can never thank Dr Meier enough! He literally gave me my life back:) The staff is also amazing...Thank you all so much!

A history of blood clots made me leery of knee surgery. My family physician referred me to Dr. Meier. Dr. Meier told me how he would perform the surgery to cut down the risk of blood clots. The surgery was performed and two months after surgery my knee is doing great with no unexpected problems. Dr. Meier is a gifted surgeon and gentleman. His use of deadening agents in the incision resulted in very little pain for several days after the surgery. His assistant Amos Haley and staff are great too.
in Nampa, ID |
Dr Meier is simply the most excellent, caring and understanding surgeon I have ever been to. He cares about you as a person and what you do and gears his practice around what your expectations are following surgery. Totally love this physician and would and have recommended him to family and friends.
