I had both hips replaced over a period of 8 weeks and couldn't be happier with the experience. Virtually no pain, an experienced team in the surgical arena and the office. Would definitely seek this doctor out for any orthopedic work.

Dr. Messieh was highly recommended by my primary doctor and chiropractor, is an excellent surgeon. My hip replacement went very well and the healing process was as described to me at the first consultation. He and his staff are professional and friendly and I am very pleased with the outcome of my surgery.

I had a total left knee replacement. I live over an hour away from his office, but the drive was well worth it. I am an RN and in the past have cared for his ortho patients in the field as a home health nurse. I know he is the best in what he does. My outcome has been textbook perfect utilizing his expertise and my physical therapist from the area I currently live in. I highly recommend Dr. Messieh for your knee and hip issues.

Dr. Messiah was highly recommended for my knee replacement by my primary Dr. As the best around. Well, he was right! Dr. Messier is a highly skilled surgeon. I followed his directions and now can’t thank him enough for changing my life. If you need a knee replacement...pick him.

Dr. Messieh, I chose Dr. Messieh, because he was highly recommended by numerous friends, who bragged about him! From the day we met Dr. Messieh and his very competent staff, we liked him very much. Very friendly, very skilled, and a quality Surgeon! I had my right knee totally replaced. It was bone on bone, and I needed the cortisone shots to somewhat function, and to return a bit of normalcy to my life, as temporary as that may have been. I’ve been home now 21 days since the surgery. I had 125 degrees of flexibility in my knee yesterday, and have been walking without a cane almost a week now. I’m seeing improvements daily! I’ve worked hard at Physical Therapy, and thanks to Dr. Messieh, I see a great life returning to this 70 year old guy! I highly recommend Dr. Messieh to you. Thank you Dr. Messieh! You are da man!

Left knee replacement: Went through the usual starting with injections and after a year decided that the pain just returned and x-rays showed bone on bone, and the decision was made to do a replacement. Dr. Messieh outlined the procedure that he would do, and explained the preparation I must also do before and after the operation to be successful, did not mince any words, no sugar coating. I liked his approach, outlined any risks and their percentages, straight and to the point. Business like, but very professional yet friendly. His office personnel did an exceptional job coordinating both my insurance and the necessary cardiac approval, etc. The the operation went very smooth at Winter Haven Hospital, was up and walking (with help) that afternoon. All the staff at WHH were great, I went home the next day. My at-home physical therapy began right away. I attribute my success to Dr. Messieh's skill, and me doing the physical preparation he asked for. NO COMPLICATIONS AT ALL.

Dr. Messieh and his staff are the Best! I am so glad my primary physician referred me to him. After my initial appointment was quickly arranged, I began researching all about total hip replacements, Dr. Messieh & Winter Haven Hospital. I reached out to friends & family for personal opinions of him. A friend in the medical field, said, He's the Best! Everything I heard from friends & family was positive and what I read on-line was positive as well. Going into that 1st appointment with him, I was very comfortable that he was who I wanted. My diagnosis showed my right hip had collapsed and for once, I understood why I was in so much pain. I had my surgery on 9/1/20 and was off my cane & attended a scheduled camping rally on 9/23/20! All my pain before is gone! That was evident right after my surgery. I was up walking with a walker the same day and left the hospital 9/2. The care I have received and am still receiving is by far, the Best! I highly recommend Dr. Messieh to all!

I live in Tampa, FL and the drive to Winter Haven is rather long. However and this is a big however the drive is worth taking for I have received the best care possible from the Doctor himself and his two Physician Assistants Faith and Britany. The office staff needs to be recognized also for courtesy and patient assistance with schedules and insurance questions. I had my total left knee replacement 09 Sep 2020 and I am currently in rehab. Everything went very well and I get stronger every day. I’m impressed with how natural the knee feels and how fast recovery is progressing. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Messieh and his staff for orthopedic surgery.
