    My mom had her knee and hip done by Dr Myers w no problems. I had my broken wrist and full knee replacement done by Dr Myers. He is experienced, knowledgeable, kind, interested, thorough and everything you want your surgeon to be. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Myers.

    Friends: Dr. Myers performed two total hip replacements for me..... Everything went better than I hoped. I am now hiking every day in the remote Sangre de Cristo mountain range of Colorado. Google my name to Learn more.... Arthur von Boennighausen

    Dr. Myers is excellent. He performed a total hip replacement (anterior approach). Only one night in the Hospital. I was up and walking in the evening after surgery. Only used the pain meds for a few days because there was very little pain. I had more pain in the morning before surgery than I had that evening after surgery. My limp is almost gone and with more exercise I have no doubt it will be completely gone very soon. My experience was completely positive. I highly recommend Dr. Steven Myers

    Recently had anterior approach hip replacement surgery by Dr. Myers. He had also done meniscus arthroscopy on both knees previously. Outcomes of all surgeries were outstanding. Very approachable and informative in manner. Highest recommendation!
