I went in to Florida Orthopaedic for knee pain. Dr. Maxson quickly determined it was a torn meniscus. A short surgery and a couple of weeks later I am good as new! The surgery was quick and painless. Recovery was a few weeks with very manageable discomfort. Dr. Maxson and the entire team at Florida Orthopaedic are awesome! I can’t thank them enough!

A++ doctor, great bedside manner, and explains everything for you to understand. He did a knee scope and a week later I felt great.  So glad you treated me, thank you! Highly recommended!

In July 2016 I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Westerfield to examine my right knee. After x-rays he indicated that my knee was not the problem; it was my right hip. After vetting surgeons, I made contact with Dr. Benjamin Maxson to discuss hip replacement. He thoroughly explained the process which needed to be followed in order to meet Medicare requirements. Ultimately, surgery was complete on December 14, 2016. Throughout the entire process, I was supported by Dr. Maxson and PT staff. My pain level was minimal. I was able to progress rapidly from a walker to a cane to no assistive devices – five weeks! During my second post-surgery visit with Dr. Maxson on February 2, 2017, he released me to go back to full activities. It took only 50 days to go from severe hip pain to total recovery. I would recommend that anyone in need of hip replacement consider Dr. Maxson and the Florida Orthopaedic Institute! Thanks to Dr. Maxson and all staff. Life is so much better now.

Dr. Maxson is very caring. He was very patience explaining options and the process about my shoulder injury. His assistant Marie has great customer service skill. I feel she genuinely cares about the patients. The physical therapists Shannon and Stephen in the Brandon are wonderful. They really want you to get better.
