I had seven surgeries already including a total knee replacement from athletic injuries. I was having a lot of problems and every orthopedic surgeon in my area wouldn’t touch me. They all recommended Dr Lyons hands down. They were correct! He did another TKA and I am doing great. Bianca thanks for all your help!! Recommend him 100%

Needed full right knee replacement. Dr Lyons took the time to explained every detail about the surgery. Surgery went well at Advent Carollwood Hospital, really liked it there. Very pleased with the office staff.

I had a knee replacement with Dr Lyons last year and now I just had a hip replacement and both surgeries have been great. He is the kind of doctor that you can trust and knowing he is such a good doctor makes you feel very peaceful and secure. His office staff is great. Bianca and Jeanette are very helpful and kind. Surgeries are very easy to set up. As soon as you are in the pre op room, you feel a great sense of peace and tranquility. He is amazing!!

I have been a patient of Dr. Lyons since 2008. He was one of only two surgeons in Florida, that my former surgeon at Scripps in CA, found to take my difficult case. He is an excellent surgeon. Knowledgeable beyond his years, and always on the cutting edge of new surgical procedures. After five joint surgeries with him and his amazing staff, I can honestly say, they know their stuff. Even able to handle difficult patients like myself. I would not willingly allow anyone else to operate on me.

My case is tough and unique. Dr Lyons took my case one piece at a time. He got to the bottom of my bilateral knee pain and what operation I would need for each knee. He is a highly skilled Dr. He takes time to explain all of your questions.

Lyons was rude and unsympathetic. His staff management/office protocol is like a surgery mill. After telling my mother she had an infection (we all knew this) and saying she had no options left other than amputation, which my mother said she did not want to do, his office called a month after this horrible interaction to schedule a surgery! They insisted they were correctly scheduling the surgery only to later say it was a mistake. I couldn't imagine going through with a surgery with him!

This is a great Dr. when it comes to orthopedic surgery. He did a pelvis reconstruction and hip replacement for my dad (78 year old). He guided us through the whole process, explain the procedure, with honesty. He was able to give back to my dad quality of life by being able to walk without pain. We still going through the recovery time (6-8 month). We are in great hands with Dr. Lyons and his staff and following all his recommendations

One year after TKR, there are still a few lingering issues, but nothing I was not make aware several times before and since surgery. There is still a little numbness on the right side of the knee. Some “clicking” in the knee sometimes. Finally, the knee still feels like there is a rubber band inside my knee. Overall all of these small issues are going away little by little. It is annoying, but I knew of these things all along. Dr. Lyons and his team are always available for consultation. Thanks

I had both knees replaced in 2/2015 & the other in 7/2015 with such wonderful results! I have received outstanding medical care under Dr. Lyons & his staff, especially Jeanette & Bianca. His team does everything possible to ensure the best possible outcome. Today, I am moving very well, totally pain free & the only evidence that I even have replacements is my scars. Thank You Dr, Lyons & staff! I always recommend you to my friends & family due to your excellence!

Horrible staff and Dr. Steven Lyons was even worse. How is it possible to come into a room without saying a hello and not even look at your face??!! Then we called to schedule due to my fathers pain and I get the run around. Do not go to this office.

I had total left knee replacement surgery February 2016. Prior to surgery we discussed post surgery expectations, to play golf and ride a bicycle, he said that should be okay. I was better off prior to surgery than after surgery. On 7/28/16 during my last office visit, we reviewed expectations post surgery which, were to be able to return to playing golf and riding a bicycle, neither of which is possible today. I declined another surgery with him based on the poor results of his first effort.

He did a total knee replacement for me but couldn't recall my case at the end of the day. He apparently does a lot of these but it's a shame to feel as though you are just one of many. I have had a difficult recovery and he's really only been interested in the post-op x-ray as proof that he did his job. The best explanation he's had for my lingering pain and physical limitations one-year post-op (worse than pre-op) is that it's my problem. I think he probably knows a lot about artificial joints
