26/01/14 5 5 5 5 Dr. Myerson is a fantastic doctor! I have been suffering with Plantar Fasiciitis for over 3 and a half years. I went to 7 top doctors in NY and still no relief. Dr. Myerson knew the issue and performed a gastrocnemius recession, that cured my pain. He is a wonderful doctor, very caring and does only what's best for his patients. Going to him from NY was the best thing I ever did.  Respond

23/10/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Myerson is a special surgeon with a gift. I was on a waiting list for a complete ankle allograft with a different surgeon locally, with my only other option being fusion. At 37 yo and very active I was leery of both paths so I sent my films to Dr. Myerson. He called me THE SAME DAY he got my info. He described to me all the problems in my joint and how he was going to fix it. Two months later I flew to Baltimore. The level of care, his ability to explain the very complicated surgery and his compassion are different than any previous medical experience. He performed a plafond plasty, calcaneal osteotomy, metatarsal osteotomy and repaired several ligaments/tendons. I am now 6 months post op. I have no pain during everyday activities, I am getting stronger and more stable on my joint. My physical therapist said if everyone looked like I did after major surgery, there would be a lot less physical therapists. I am very glad I did the research and flew to Baltimore.

06/07/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Myerson along with his staff are superior. Dr. Myerson is a miracle worker. I had pain since my initial orthopaedic surgery back in 2008 by someone in Bethesda, MD. I always complained about the pain, but the surgeon did nothing. I was given Dr. Myerson's name - it took 3 months before I saw him, but after the initial appt. he told me exactly what was wrong - my heel is not aligned with my foot. Within a week I had surgery and 12 weeks later, I am pain free and started enjoying life. Dr. Myerson is truly a surgeon with a calling. I am so grateful to him. I would recommend Dr. Myerson to anyone who wants a normal life after any type of problem with foot or ankle surgery. He is the only doctor for me.

He was reassuring & made me feel so at ease. Even the Physical Therapist were impressed at how prompt his staff was in responding to their comunication about my progress. I am so grateful that Dr.Myerson was my surgeon. Truly this is a gifted surgeon.

He is very caring, knowledgeable, and a true perfectionist with his surgery. I will be forever grateful for his superb work that will keep me moving! His staff, also, is woderful and it is most unusual to find an entire department that has such a friendly and caring attitude.

26/02/11 2 1 1 1 Several years ago, Dr. Myerson performed reconstructive foot bunionectomy surgery on my wife. A staf infection resulted. The doctor went on vacation and for four days would not authorize his assistant to perform the surgery necessary to remove the infected tissue. By the time it was done, it was too late. The infection had gone into the bones. The next time we saw Dr. Myerson, he ignored us and talked about the foot to the medical students trailing him as if it was a specimen. Several more operations by a different foot doctor were necessary after that, including rebuilding the big toe with cadaver bone. My wife has had difficulty walking, as well as much pain, ever since. Dr. Myerson destroyed the quality of much of her physical well being through his actions. He may get a good ratings, but anyone using him for foot surgery is taking a huge risk.

14/12/10 5 5 5 5 I came to Dr. Myerson because of a faulty implant that I received 10 years ago. Dr. Myerson was extremely professional and showed concern about my situation. He is personable and extremely knowledgeable. He was able to correct my implant along with improving my walk. The overall procedure was a great success which I have been able to walk almost normal. He left minimal scaring and no infection compared to my previous surgery. He and his team of doctors were very accommodating and extremely professional. I strongly recommend Dr. Myerson to all those I come in contact with. He is a great example of doctors who are in the profession because they still care about their patients and improving healthcare.  Respond

01/08/10 5 5 5 5 it's been one year since my surgery.before i contemplated amputation.My life was so consumed by the injury that I didn’t have the time for anything else in my life:I had my first mammogram, got a diagnosis of carpel tunnel,problem in my neck, as time is going by my arms & hands are not tingling as much so I wonder if it wasn’t b/c couldn't walk correctly causing my neck to go out of alignment;going to the mall w/my daughter i couldn't keep up b/c of the pain and the way i walked; 2 weeks ago she told ME to slow down. My physical size is smaller,without exercise, got diagnosed with ADHD, which has also improved my life,my overall personality is better b/c I don't have to deal with the pain &depression. It goes far beyond a foot surgery.It is a complete quality of life change.Hershey Med Ctr told me I could never have an ankle replacement. Dr. Myerson has done the impossible. I can not begin to express how grateful to Dr Myerson for giving me my life back. only 1000 char allowed

26/04/10 5 5 5 5 I have had end-stage osteoarthritis in my ankle for years (former triathlete). Dr. Myerson’s success in salvaging my ankle (over fusion) is by now legendary, at least within his office. In September 2009 he spent hours longer than anticipated in the operating room successfully replacing my ankle. One of the other attending surgeons told me afterward that Dr. Myerson was likely the only doctor in the world who could have successfully pulled off the replacement, overcoming the complications encountered during surgery. This same doctor looked me straight in the eye and said he would never forget this operation for the rest of his life. I am walking today on a fully functioning ankle (instead of a fused ankle) because Dr. Myerson had the skill and determination to do everything possible for me. Obviously everyone’s situation is unique, but for me this surgeon has my unwavering gratitude and respect for his efforts, which went above and beyond where others could go.

09/11/09 5 5 5 5 I had 3 previous surgeries with another doctor on the same foot for the same problem and went to Dr. Myerson for repair work. He was well read and knew immediately what was wrong with me. After an unremarkable surgery, I am happy to say that I'm healing well and hope to be 100% very soon. He was considerate and appropriately sympathetic to my pain and discomfort and never made me feel like I was making things sound worse than it truly was. I would refer anyone to this wonderful and caring doctor.

20/08/09 5 5 5 5 Doctor is the best and a world-renowned pioneer in foot and ankle reconstruction. Gave me an arch for the first time in my life. Most people who have PTTD reconstructive surgery are still flat footed after the surgery. I, on the other hand, have an impressive arch. Doctor also is conservative and resorts to surgery after all else has failed.

06/06/09 5 5 5 5 This man is an extraordinary doctor and has changed my life for the better. In February 09, I had a chevron osteotomy on the first metatarsal bone in my right foot and a bunionectomy. I was very nervous about this operation as many women I know have had their bunions removed with an extremely painful and unsatisfactory recovery period. I had hardly any pain, zero complications and my foot looks and feels terrific. I would refer any of my friends to Dr Myerson and have recently done so to much praise. I think it's easy for others to be extra critical of a doctor as most people are never satisfied and just like to complain - so please take my advice and trust this excellent surgeon as being overly qualified and extremely well versed in his field and his diagnosis. There is a reason he is world reknowned and athletes continually seek him out. He IS the best.

27/05/08 5 5 5 5 Everything was topnotch. The physicians assisting Dr.Myerson are learning from the best. He didn't recommend surgery first although he said the surgery would have a relatively easy recovery. Instead he suggested trying orthotics.The person preparing the orthotics used computer technology to study my gait and plantar pressure points to make sure my weight is transferred properly while walking. I was impressed with staff friendliness, preparation, and professionalism. Thanks.
