Highly efficient and knowledgeable surgeon. Procedures for both pre and post surgery were well defined. The surgery was a success and the procedures were followed completely as defined by the surgeon. Well respected and recommended by former patients (three of my neighbors recommended him). I will be referring patients also!

Knee replacement went according to his plan. No surprises or unexpected issue; just like clockwork. Scar is barely noticeable, great job. When the time comes he will do my other knee.

I recently had hip surgery on 7/23/18. I spent 1 day in the hospital and then went to rehab for 20 days. There was no pain and recovery was excellent. I can walk without the use of a cane. I had two post-op office visits and he answered all my questions and made sure I was ok. The surgery was so simple I could not believe it. No stitches or staples. A six inch incision he actually glued back together. He is the best, congenial and good sense of humor. He knows his stuff. Thank you Dr. M.

Dr. Messieh cares about his patients. He takes time with each of his patients. He is thorough and very competent. Sometimes there is a wait for your scheduled appointment because he does take time with each patient. You are not rush in and out.

I went to Dr. Messieh in The Villages office because my hip had been bothering me for years but had been getting worse. Three friends had their hip replaced by him and loved him. After looking at my X-ray which showed bone on bone I had them put me in for surgery. I had the surgery a month ago and am so glad I had it. The recovery was fast and little pain. I can walk without a cane and can do just about anything around the house. I would highly recommend Dr. Messieh.

I am 70 years oId and had my two knees done at the same time 4 years ago this January, I am a tennis player, I am also a tennis teaching professional, play pickle ball and ride a racing bike every day for 5 mi at the lowest gear. Dr Messieh, told me that if I did me therapy .i'd be back on the court playing tennis in 12 weeks, I was actually playing competitive tennis in 11 weeks. I have had NO pain at all since my therapy was completed. Dr Messieh is fantastic,! Thanks Doc !

Before my hip replacement I had significant pain any time I walked any distance. From the moment I woke up after surgery I have had virtually no pain, I walk a mile a few times a week without pain or difficulty, and I take no drugs for pain, not even tylenol.

I found him and his staff to be warm and caring. He replaced my left hip in January of 2016 and my left hip in April. No problems with either hip. I was up walking the same day of surgery and went home the next day. I was playing golf in 6 weeks after each surgery. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Michael Messieh is a brilliant man and a brilliant surgeon. He is humble, kind, caring and honest. He expects the best and is clear and precise of his expectations on what he expects from patient to be in the best possible shape to get the best possible results. He doesn't do surgery to just do it... you prepare and he does his part and we both succeed. He is the best Orthopedic surgeon in Florida. I am so proud to say he is my surgeon. His office staff is above the rest, kind & caring

What a wonderful Doctor!! He truly cares about his patients and takes the time to answer all of your questions. After an awful accident that left me in the ER with my ankle completely broken, Dr. Messieh came to my care. He is very direct and to the point, great bedside manner and truly a wonderful person. My surgery went great. I was scared I would never have the same movement in my ankle ever again, and here I am today playing soccer with my daughters. I highly recommend. Thank you Dr. Messieh

Direct, to the point, high quality, results based Surgeon. Pain protocol for surgery had me walking after full knee replacement w/ walker two hours after I woke up. I spent one night in hospital. Home less than 36 hours after surgery. The hospital stay was exemplary; best ever. I'm trying to be conservative in my comments, but I'm so satisfied that I can't wait for number two! Well at least I'm super confident in my future result, which is a really good feeling!

A little slow from waiting room to patient room but once in the Doctor came in he spent a lot of time examining and then clearly telling me what was going on with my knee. Treatment was done on site. He was a friendly man who showed he cared about my health.
