I had horrible pain from my hip, to my knees, to my toes that was truly affecting my life. After seeing many other doctors, I was referred to Dr. Miranda who immediately identified that I needed a hip replacement. Being fourty eight years old, it seemed like I was too young for this procedure and I was, of course, very hesitant. It turned out to be one of the best experiences of my life. I elected the anterior approach. With a strong determination and being faithful with physical therapy, I was back to normal, pain free living in two to three weeks. It is wonderful to be myself again and to have that pain to be GONE! I am back to my active lifestyle! I credit the expertise of Dr. Miranda and his staff for being professional and very knowledgeable from start to finish. If you were ever considering this procedure, I highly recommend you trust Dr. Miranda and his staff. There is no better and you will thank me later.
For two years I was avoiding surgery on my hip. I went to the best place in town Florida Orthopaedic Institute, and they told me I needed surgery. When I inquired about the doctors available I selected Dr. Miranda. I am glad I did! I explained to him the pain not only on my hip but in my knee and back. He assured me the pain on my knee will go away after surgery and it did. The same day of surgery I walked to the bathroom, the next day I began therapy, two days later I went home, and three weeks later I could walk without a walker or cane. Thank you to God and Dr. Miranda, it has been a year without pain! I am sorry I didn’t do it sooner.
In 2016, I received 2 knee replacements. One in September, another in December. In 5 days I was walking outside with the help of a walker. In 5 weeks I was back volunteering at Brandon Hospital. Dr. Miranda and his team were excellent! Thank you Dr. Miranda!
Dr. Miranda saved my mother’s life. She fell and broke her hip in Puerto Rico. She had three hip reconstruction surgeries in Puerto Rico. My mom is a diabetic and immediately following surgery caught an infection and had pneumonia. Within 7 months she was withering away completely bed ridden. She had lost most of her muscle mass in her leg and had lost more than 50 pounds. I finally got her strong enough to travel to Florida where in less than a month Dr. Miranda assessed the problem and performed surgery. He immediately put in a port to dispense antibiotics to fight the infection that still lingered in her body. He then made sure that she was placed in an appropriate rehabilitation facility to help her walk again. Today, 7 months post-surgery she is walking and back at home living independently. Thank you Dr. Miranda and Amanda for all your help!
I just wanted to personally thank Dr. Miranda and express my deepest appreciation for the truly OUTSTANDING job you did with my full knee replacement on February 11, 2014! As a direct result, I was able to complete my 54th Marathon (24th Marine Marathon) on October 26, 2014. I owe it all to you and FOI!
THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
I could not be happier or more relieved with my choice to visit FOI. After years of hip and leg pain, and knowing I would need a total hip replacement as some point due to a childhood injury, I’m so grateful to have learned of FOI and the highly skilled staff there. Dr. Miranda performed my THR on a Tuesday morning and I was up walking and back home the very next night. While this is probably not typical, I’m very thrilled that this was the case for me. Six weeks later and I’m headed back to work, getting stronger and better each and every day. Thank you Dr. Miranda and Florida Orthopaedic Institute!
I normally do not provide feedback. In fact, I was not the patient–it was my 77 (going on 40) year old mother. But it was because of my parents’ experience that I felt compelled to provide feedback. My mother needed a knee replacement after having been scoped at another institution. Given my personal past success with a few surgeons from Florida Orthopedic Institute, I selected a name from the list of knee surgeons, passed it along to my mother, and the rest is history. Dr. Miranda not only did a phenomenal job with the surgery (I would have been disappointed with anything other than a stellar performance from a Florida Ortho surgeon), he was a standout for another reason . . . he didn’t treat my parents (my father is 83-going-on-40 and attended all the appointments) like they were “old people”. My parents were given adequate time to communicate and Dr. Miranda “listened”. In doing so, he not only gained their genuine trust and respect, he was able to quickly and proficiently address my mother’s exact needs and get her on the path to almost a full recovery only three weeks after surgery. Kudos to Dr. Miranda in doing his job in a stellar manner while never forgetting that the simple act of listening is such a precious commodity.
Dr. Miranda performed my knee replacement on May 21, 2013. With lots of hard work on my part in rehab, I was walking without any kind of assistance in 16 days, and my scar was hardly noticeable, thanks to Dr. Miranda’s excellent surgical skills! I must comment on his delightful staff, always so friendly and helpful, particularly Amanda who was available when I needed to have an answer to a troubling question or problem. Dr. Miranda is so easy to talk to and so understanding and listens to you —- treats you like a person, not a chart, wonderful bedside manner. Wonderful experience, and if my other knee should need replacing or a hip, I’d be right back in Dr. Miranda’s office!
I would like to thank FOI and dr. Miranda for the best medical experience of my life. Being 62 yrs old and no major problems with my health, I was a little scared. Dr Miranda did a total hip replacement , and in 6 weeks I was released to return to work. What a great job. Thank you again
