An Orthopedic Doctor in Naples: Among the Bests of the East Coast

Naples, Florida is a place where great orthopedic doctors exercise their practice. I don’t want to sound like an infomercial from Billy Mays (R.I.P.) but numbers back our statement.

However, I don’t want to talk about numbers, because numbers can be cold when thrown out for a doctor. I want tell a little story about the man behind our practice. And don’t get me wrong, I have seen and worked with good orthopedic doctors in Naples and other locations among the country and overseas…

But before I tell the story, I want to ask you a question:

What do you search for when you look for a doctor?

You can say:

  • Experience (Years in practice)
  • Knowledge
  • Good references from other patients

The list may go on an on. Now, these virtues are among a figure we could call “The good doctor”… Now, Lets go back to my


When I started working for doctor Mead I felt right away he was a good person. I already have heard that he was the best or at least second best orthopedic doctor in Naples and one of the top surgeons in the country. Nurses, PA’s (Practitioners Assistants) among other medical professionals would always say so. However, I didn’t have a testimony for myself to share.

I read it and while I was still processing the message, the doctor said: “That’s it, that’s what all of this is about”. I got it right away. With time I realized Dr. Mead is so focused on his patients that he can literally forget about the world around him. In his endless quality search, he has created one of the best practices in the country.

Sounds like hype but is not. The “cold statistics”: Currently ranked in the top 1% of all orthopedic doctors nationally for patient satisfaction by Press-Ganey, and has been so for the last 2 years.”America’s Top Surgens” for the last 15 years. 2009 Physician of the Year Honoree by the NCH Healthcare Systems. His patients enjoy one of the lowest revision rates and his infection rate is less than 0.1%.

But beyond that, is the compromise, hard work, desire to excel and give every patient the best treatment possible, what makes doctor Mead a great


Of “The Good Doctor” you will find some and like I said before, there are very good physicians in Naples. But if you want the best orthopedic doctor in Naples, you just need to make a poll and we will surely be there waiting for your call.
