“I had both my knees replaced on April 9, 2012. Today is August 8th, and they feel wonderful. No more holding the railing going upstairs. No pain when getting on and off the train. I returned to work June 25. This was one of the best descisions of my life! My physical therapy was hard work, but the best! Thank you.”

  • Left hip replacement

“Dr. Lyon (& Jeremy) did an amazing job on my left hip replacement during February, 2013. Now, a year later, I am going back to these experts so they can work their magic on my right hip! I know they have both the knowledge and the experience to make my days pain free once again!”

  • Bi-Lateral Total Knee Replacement

“I first saw Dr. Lyon in February, 2013. After his examination, Dr. Lyon informed me that I had virtually no cartilage remaining in either knee. He suggested several courses of treatment, but recommended that I begin with injections first. After several months, it was clear that injections werenât helping and we discussed bi-lateral total knee replacement. We decided that the surgery would take place in November. Dr. Lyon replaced both knees on Monday, November 17, 2013, and I began PT on day 2 and returned home on November 22nd. For the next two weeks, I had PT at home and then began PT as an outpatient at the hospital where I had the surgery. PT went extremely well and I was able to return to work after six weeks. Five months later I am able to walk, climb stairs, and more virtually pain free, Last week I began golfing again, an activity I love that had been quite painful prior to my surgery. Thanks to Dr. Lyon, I am able to resume activities that I was unable to do prior to my bi-lateral knee replacement.”

  • Rotator cuff and Knee replacements

“Four years ago I called Mercy and said I needed to see an Orthopaedic surgeon and the lady said I'll connect you with Dr. Lyon. I asked is he any good and she said, "He's the best we have." Today I can definitely say that you are truly the best Dr. Lyon. Dr. Lyon replaced both my husband Jim's knees 2 years ago and he's doing great. In 2010 I had a torn rotator cuff in my left shoulder which Dr. Lyon fixed and now four years later I had a torn rotator cuff in my right shoulder that he also fixed in April 2014. I'm happy to say that each day is getting better thanks to you and also a big thank you to your assistant Jeremy Houtakker, PA-C for seeing me on my follow up appointments. You and Dr. Lyon are definitely a good team. ”

  • Total Right Hip Replacement

“I was in so much pain for so long that I couldn't tell exactly where it was coming from any more! My back, my knee or my hip! I went to a pain clinic...I had physical therapy....yada yada yada! I started a little pharmacy of my own at home with the crazy amount of pain meds I managed to accumulate over the years. I had a total hip replacement on June 2, 2014. The very next week I had zero (0) pain...anywhere! A BIG shout out to Dr. Lyon and Jeremy and everyone who made this 'pain free woman....pain free! Thank you so very much! I actually have a life without pain! I truly did not think it possible! Carol”


  • knee replacements

“I had my 1st knee replacement on August 24, 2015. and my second on October 24, 2015. I can't believe how good it feels to walk again without pain. With physical therapy at home and outpatient, I'm going to be able to return to work the first week of January. I am so anxious to start living a pain free life. Dr. Lyon and Jeremy are a blessing to their patients. Thank you for your patience, kindness and availability at all times. I will forever be thankful!”

  • Both knees replaced

“Dr. Lyon replaced both of my knees;the right on 11/10/14 and the left on 10/5/15. I feel like a new man. I can't overstate how happy I am with the results. I guess I didn't realize how much pain I had been tolerating for the last few years until now that I am pain free. Dr. Lyon, Jeremy, and the whole medical team exhibited the utmost in professionalism, and the proof is in the results. I am now more active than I have been for years. I walk, swim, ride bicycle and work out regularly, and I just keep feeling better. I have just recently retired and thanks to Dr. Lyon and Jeremy, I'm looking to have a long and active retirement. ”

  • Left hip relacement

“I am 80. Dr Lyon replaced my left hip on Dec 11, 2017. The whole process amazing. From Dr. Lyon's skill to his support staff, to the clinic and hospital, as perfect as it can be for surgery and recovery. I am indebted to them all and by mid January was walking with no cane, no walker, back to normal. Would never consider anywhere else. Thank you all. ”
