in Florence AZ |
I had a great experience with my knee replacement, I would highly recommend Dr. Thomas and his staff for knee replacements.
in Gilbert, AZ |
I had my left hip replacement with Dr. Thomas, who used the anterior approach, just about a month ago. My recovery was night & day from my right hip (done at another practice, posterior/lateral approach) a year ago. After this surgery, it was so much easier to strengthen & regain my flexibility. My "feeling back to normal" took about 3 weeks, compared to 2 1/2 months. Dr. Thomas and his team are the best!!
in Casa Grandr, AZ |
I am very happy I was under Dr. Thomas' care. He replaced a total right shoulder for me that was giving me many problems. His bedside manners are unmatchable. He is willing to spend time with you pre-and post-op with very clear explanations. Thank you Dr. Max and staff!
in Mesa, AZ |
This Doctor is the one you should go with. I have gotten a ton of compliments on the scar and I have a big knee. Things went off without a hitch and I couldn't be happier. I barely needed medication for the pain afterwards. You can stop looking, NOW. .
Gilbert, AZ |
The surgery from Dr. Thomas turned out to be a success. My recovery was fast, ditching my walker 6 days after surgery. My range of motion is great and I can feel the entire top of my leg including the incision.
in Mesa az |
Dr Thomas Takes time to listen and is caring. The staff as well works very well with questions and billing issues. His assistant Laura also takes time for her patience. I would highly recommend Dr Thomas and the facility.

in Gilbert, AZ |
Dr Thomas was good at explaining my surgery and recovery. We spoke about updating the web page with more up to date procedures for hip replacement. I never felt rushed to get out of his office. And dr Thomas always made sure we had all our questions answered.

From beginning to end honesty, integrity, and my well being was always number 1. He has taken care of my family all the way back to my wife's Grandmother. He's the best and the Bomb digdity that's per my wife.

I HAVE BEEN A PATIENT OF DR THOMAS SINCE 2015. I HAD MY RIGHT HIP REPLACED IN 2015 AND I RETURNED TO WORK AFTER 7 WEEKS ! I AM A NURSE,SO YOU CAN IMAGINE WHAT A THRILL IT WAS TO BE ABLE TO PROVIDE CARE AGAIN WITHOUT PAIN. HE USED A NEWER APPROACH,ANTERIOR TOTAL HIP FOR MY JOINT REPLACEMENT. I AM STILL DOING VERY WELL. I WILL NEED A TOTAL KNEE REPLACEMENT IN THE FUTURE AND WILL WITHOUT HESITATION HAVE DR THOMAS PERFORM MY SURGERY. HIS TEAM ARE WONDERFUL,CARING AND KIND.

Dr Thomas treated my AC separation and completely cured my pain! He is attentive, professional and very knowledgeable. Also, when my daughter fell out of a tree and broke her elbow, he fixed her up too. He is our family orthopedics surgeon!

Dr. Thomas did an excellent job on my hip replacement. His office staff is first class. A well run organization that cares about the patients. Love Dr. Thomas' sense of humor. Will recommend him to anyone that needs orthopedic surgery.
in Chandler, AZ |
Professional, caring, factual. Set expectations for the hip replacement both pre and post op The attention and communication were the best. I felt confident after meeting Dr Thomas that he and his team could give me my active life back. I was not disappointed. After 11 weeks I have resumed to full activities, golf, walking, biking, swimming, and it even lowered my golf handicap by two strokes Im a big fan of Dr Thomas, his team at Ortho Arizona and Arizona Spine and Joint Hospital
in Gilbert, AZ |
Dr. Thomas was very good at explaining the procedure and listening to my concerns. It has been 5 weeks and I am pain free.
in Phoenix, AZ |
Dr. Thomas performed my right hip replacement in Summer 2016 using the advanced anterior incision method. Everything went even better than I could have expected. Five weeks later my incision is still healing but my new hip is great! Dr. Thomas spent considerable time answering all my questions before and after the surgery. I was also very impressed with his staff. I have no hesitation recommending Dr. Maxwell Thomas; I encourage everyone needing orthopedic surgery to check him out first.
in Gilbert, AZ |
I had total hip replacement on June 22nd 2016. Second week I was walking without a cane or walker. After 3 weeks the incision looks great and I feel like I could do so much more than before surgery. Because I feel so good I have to make sure not to over due it. I had three consultations with different doctors and Dr. Thomas by far was the most personable, knowledgeable, and thorough. He took time to answer all my questions. He also has a great staff. I would highly recommend him.
in Mesa, AZ |
I had a hip replacement on may 3rd 2016. Today is May 19 2016 and I am up moving around, walking and have no pain that i had so bad before from the arthritis in my hip. Dr Thomas is my hero!!! They are caring, polite and helpful from the front desk to check out. He takes the time you need with him at every visit. His staff are amazing! I have and will continue to tell everyone about Mendoza Ortho! I cannot thank them enough! If you are looking for a Ortho Dr. Look no further than Dr. Thomas!
in Gilbert, AZ |
Dr Thomas took the time to examine my knee thoroughly and performed an arthroscopy knee scope and discovered some serious cartilage lesions on my femur. He then performed an OATS procedure and my knee is healing well. Dr Thomas kept looking where other physicians stopped short and resigned my barely 30 year old knee as a total loss. Thank you Dr Thomas!
in Queen Creek, AZ |
