I am from NY and was visiting Disney when I fell and broke and dislocated my right upper arm in 3 places. Luckily for me I wound up in Florida Hospital South in Orlando and Dr. Meuret did my emergency surgery , a plate and 9 screws. When I returned home my Orthopedic Surgeon was amazed at what a fantastic job Dr. Meuret did. I would definitely recommend Dr Meuret.Patient, Doctor Robert Meuret
Excellent, caring surgeon. In my case, inserted a plate to repair a broken ulna sustained in a sports accident. Repair was to my dominant arm and it had good functionality after 2 weeks, healed in 6-8 weeks, and returned to fully normal function within about 6 months. His background in PT really helped accelerate my ROM recovery in follow-up appointments.Patient, Doctor Robert Meuret
Great Dr., helped me with a knee replacement. Walked me thru every process, was helpful in every way.Patient, Doctor Robert Meuret
I fell and broke my shoulder in five places. Dr. Meuret put it back together, I have screws in the ball and a rod in the upper shoulder. I can put my arm up over my head, a positive thing about him is that he was a physical therapist before becoming a doctor. Made him twice as good!Patient, Doctor Robert Meuret
Dr. Meuret repaired my broken elbow, which included hardware installation. Afterward, the Occupational Therapists admired his handywork. They told me that it was a difficult procedure done well. I have full range of motion and little post-surgery pain. Thank you, Dr. Meuret.Patient, Doctor Robert Meuret
Fortunate Dr. Meuret was in ER Nov. 2016. Compassionate, expertise immediately apparant. He diagnosed shoulder break and how repair would be made. Operation success however his concern of screw becoming disengaged happened a couple of months later. It was removed by him as outpatient surgery and therapy resumed. Later the ball in that shoulder joint died due to the trauma and Dr. Meuret performed reverse shoulder replacement successfully alleviating the pain. Yes great confidence in him.Patient, Doctor Robert Meuret
My recovery has been a success. No side effects, no bleeding. Listen and answer the questions patiently. Blessed by God for having him as a surgeon.Patient, Doctor Robert Meuret
Had hip replacement surgery, Dr. Meuret did a wonderful job no screws cement etc. I do have a good looking scar. I'm hoping my new insurance covers him to do the other side. I would definitly recommend him!Patient, Doctor Robert Meuret
Absolutely the best. Kind and understanding and took his time with me. Highly recommend Dr. Meuret!!Patient, Doctor Robert Meuret
I ended up in the E/R in great pain after a fall when my dog knocked me off my feet, landing on my shoulder. Dr. Meuret, surgically repaired my 4 part proximal humerus comminuted fracture. He thoroughly explained everything to me, including what to expect with the healing process in my particular situation. Dr. Meuret's precision surgical expertise was evident immediately. After surgery, the throbbing pain from the break was gone - for good! I have minimal and clean surgical scarring. My shoulder is perfectly aligned. Dr. Meuret was thorough in his communications with me, and I’ve had no surprises during my follow-ups and therapy progress. I think Dr. Meuret’s pre-surgical experience in physical therapy also helps him to relate with patients. Yes, I would highly recommend Dr. Meuret and am thankful he was my orthopedic trauma surgeon.Patient, Doctor Robert Meuret
