Dr. Meade gave me my life back. My knee pain kept me from enjoying the activities I loved, but I was afraid of getting surgery. After watching Dr. Meade's videos on the internet, I felt like I knew him, even before my initial appointment. His way of doing things gave me the confidence to proceed with surgery, and looking back, the procedure was no big deal. I'm so happy with Dr. Meade and Coordinated Health!

My knee failed within 10 months due to doctor error. Finally now at almost exactly 3 years another surgeon is going to give me a knee revision. Take out all Meades faulty work and put in a new functioning knee. Stay clear seems to be operating a knee factory...he prides himself with the quickness he can get them done and how many he does a year....I thought he truly cared about my quality of life...found out the hard way ...it was all about my money.

5 years ago Dr. Meade performed knee replacement to my right knee. My recovery went well. I live over 1 hour away from his office and chose to travel there for my surgery and follow up care in Hazelton. Both Dr. Meade and his associates have been thorough in answering questions and concerns, adjusting appointments as needed. I recommend his practice to all who ask.

Every step of my patient/doctor relationship with Dr. Meade was of great benefit to me. His ability to allay my concerns prior to surgery, the comprehensively healthful pre-surgical protocol, and the ease of my recovery following his capable, innovative procedure have assured a quality of life I very much am enjoying. Kudos to Dr. Meade and the doctors, physical therapists, and staff of Coordinated Health.

I am already recommending Dr. Meade to several people that I know who will need a knee replacement in the short future. His expertise and knowledge of replacement knee is far ahead of the normal Orto Drs. His follow up after surgery is excellent. His entire team that works closely with him are wonderful. I had a great recovery and it is only 5 months in. I highly recommend anyone needing knee replacement to contact Dr. Meads Office

had both knees done about 10 yrs apart. Dr. Meade did both and both experiences went exceptionally well. No issues, very little pain and great care, not just from Dr. Meade, but from his whole support staff as well.

Love Dr Meade! This is my second time having a knee replacement with Dr Meade. His team made the whole experience really easy and less stressful. He had a class and went over the process and gave you a booklet with all the information.

I wanted only the best when I decided to take the plunge and get knee replacements. I made an initial decision and then decided to ask a friend, an RN with 40 years of OR surgical experience, what she knew. Her young son had a football injury and they chose Dr. Thomas Meade. After talking with her for a short time, my decision was made. Never a doubt in my mind from the get-go with Dr. Meade. Warm, caring Surgeon. Brilliant, kind, MAGIC HANDS MEADE!! LOVE my new knees and all of his TEAM!!

I was referred to Dr. Meade by a Physical Therapist who told me, knees are what he does every day he's the best ! He sure was right, I met with Dr Meade who made me feel comfortable and explained everything completely. Being as nervous as I was, I now felt at ease. Since then I had two knee replacements, I was out of the hospital the next day with both surgerys, and did not need to take pain meds. I strongly recommend Dr. Meade, and his staff. to any one with a knee problem. He is the best !
