Very pleasant visit as he observed my walk and asked questions about my hip which he had replaced eight years ago. He also emailed me the xray picture of my hip. Present age 89.

Dr. Lackey answered all our questions, patiently and clearly. I had my anterior hip replacement (outpatient procedure) two weeks ago, and I felt better than before the surgery almost immediately. I expect my recovery to continue for a while, but it's already been worth it.

Hands down the best orthopedic doctor EVER!! I am 66 years old and have been active my whole life. For the past 1 1/2 years I have been limited in doing the things I love because of my knee (walked with a limp 1 1/2 yrs!)...Went to another practice without any relief. I went to Dr.Lackey and he knew right away what needed to be done. I had a partial knee replacement Dec 31 2019 and 5 months later I am walking without a limp and back to doing things I love! I just wish I had gone to him sooner!! The staff is excellent, He is THE BEST and I could not be happier! Thanks to Dr.Lackey for giving me back what has always been such a big part of my life...PAIN FREE MOVEMENT!

I had a partial knee replacement in December 2019 and had a wonderful experience from beginning to end. A partial knee replacement was a total success. Dr. Lackey was very attentive to all of my questions and needs. Thank you Dr. Lackey for giving me back my life without pain!

As a veteran I receive all my medical needs at the Indianapolis VA Hospital. When my knee replacement had to be replaced however and no longer had a qualified surgeon on staff they referred me to Dr. Wesley Lackey and I thank God they did! My surgery was yesterday.?? Just before things got going we ran into a problem. I have a spinal cord stimulator in my back and had forgotten to bring the device needed to turn it off which could have caused very serious side effects. After much research and discussion it was decided to proceed with surgery. The surgery went flawlessly! Dr. Lackey went far above and beyond not only researching the problem but explaining it to me and my husband. His discussion with us was very detailed and empathetic. More than ANY doctor had ever been with me. I would highly recommend him as the best surgeon am have ever been to!

Dr. Lackey gave me my life back!! At age 52 I couldn’t walk very far without stopping my pain was horrible. I had been bone on bone with both knees for way to long. Other Drs said I was to young for replacement and continued to give me shots. Dr. Lackey took one look at my X-rays, patted my shoulder , and got the surgery appointment book! This IS THE BEST THING I EVER DID FOR MYSELF! It’s been a year, I can walk , run , go up and down stairs, even sit cross cross! Best part is I can play with my Grand babies! I will forever hold a special place in my heart for Dr Lackey and his team. God bless you all!

I have never had a doctor who was more focused on me as a person. The level of care I received from his whole team was beyond any experience I’ve had to date. His expertise, knowledge, and ability shows clearly, and while it’s unfortunate that I needed the surgery, I had a positive experience and outcome. He really prepares you for the entire process-which you won’t appreciate until it’s over. He is an outstanding doctor, I highly recommend him.

I am very satisfied with my right hip replacement by Dr. Lackey. I had my surgery 7 weeks before going on a Mediterranean cruise, which entailed a lot of walking up steps at inclines on tours. My hip was great-I did do physical therapy, but so glad I had the surgery done. He did a great job. Was able to have it done anteriorly, which did not cut muscles. Highly recommend him & St. Francis--Moorsville Hospital.

Dr. Lackey is so awesome! He really listens to your concerns & provides great solutions. His bedside manner is so great - you don't learn that in med school. He did my partial knee replacement last year - he explained to me exactly what the proceudre &recovery would be like. I broke my ankle this summer & was told I needed surgery. The first call I made was to him to see if he would repair it - and again, he was so accomodating and fixed ir perfectly! Highly recommend to everyone I know!

Very considerate to all my concerns before and after surgery. Staff and or Dr himself returning calls when I had/have questions. Very professional staff during surgery prep that kept things light while talking with me and getting things staged. And the doctor's friendly hand shake and greeting right before the procedure was very much appreciated. Can not think of anything that I would like to have been different except never busting my knee in the first place.
