It is with deep gratitude that I write about my experience. Words alone cannot express my thanks for Dr. Bright's compassionate and expert care of my injury. I truly do not know what I would have done if it were not for his prompt attention and surgery that allowed me to return to an active lifestyle. You will always be in my thoughts and prayers.
Dr Bright was the light at the end of a dark hole. When I met him for the first time, I felt safe in his care. I was very afraid, but he convinced me to proceed. He gave me step by step information about my surgery. He was so nice. I thank God for Dr. Adam Bright. He gave me my life back. I can shop, attend functions, go to football games,and go out to dinner (things I hadn't done in years). When I think about it and even as I type this review, I tear up. I had my surgery on Jan.15,2009. When I woke up, I noticed a dozen peach roses on a table. And guess what? They were from Dr.Bright. I love him for being a great surgeon and a great person. I know there are many great surgeons, but thank you God once again for Dr.Bright.
It has been 6 months since I had my hip replacement (August of 2010). Not only did Dr. Bright cure my hip pain, but he also restored the length of my leg. From day one, it healed and felt very good. What a job! Thank you very much, Dr. Bright!
Thank you for all you have done for me. Your efforts made me so much better. I am doing so well now after my hip replacement, and am free of pain. You have shown yourself to be a great listener and excellent explainer. You are a caring person. There is more to you than your excellent professional skills and talent, since I know that you really care about me. I have felt comfort from you, which (amazingly) relieves my normal anxiety. You are the best of the medical profession. God bless. 3/15/2010.
Submission: 5/26/2011. For over a year I have wanted to say Thank You to the best surgeon ever!! I suffered with bad hips for so many years and the pain aged me so. Doctor Bright replaced one hip and the other got so painful that I begged to have it replaced asap...and it was done. What an experience!! Dr Bright is so amazing, the experience at both Doctors' Hospital and rehab at SBC successfully allowed me to function on my own, pain and cane free, in a few short weeks..Dr Bright is a genius and I am sad that it has taken so long to say "Thank you, dear Dr. Bright for a job well done...and I still love your ties"...ps...I really feel 10 years younger now...Blessings...
6/3/2011: Dr. Bright, When you replaced my hip two years ago I remember you telling me that the average patient instead of losing weight actually gains 10 lbs within a year! I was determined not to let that happen to me, and once I got serious I did start losing. I am now down almost 35 lbs! But the really good news for me is I walked in a 5K on the 22nd and again on the 29th, and my hip did great. To a man, like you, who can run 100 miles at a time, that's nothing. But for me it is an accomplishment that I wouldn't have achieved without the surgery you provided through the clinic. I'm truly grateful for your care.

To show my appreciation for the wonderful care I received from Dr Bright, his staff, and the gang at SMH where I had my knee replaced, I confronted my camera shyness to post a video note. Copy and paste the web url. http://youtu.be/0YqkyjIZoBk
Total Hip 3/8/2013: My husband and I had visited four other orthopedic surgeons regarding my necessary hip replacement. Upon meeting Dr. Bright, we decided that he was the doctor of choice, and how right we were. Immediately, he made us feel comfortable regarding the many questions I had, and later more questions that my husband had meeting the doctor alone. My hip operation went very smoothly, the incision being on the side. Pain was never a problem with me. I never felt any pain. From day one, Dr. Bright was thoughtful, and did everything to put me at ease. I cannot speak highly enough of Dr. Bright and his office staff. The pines rehabilitation center that Dr. Bright recommended was again the best choice. We had looked at four other rehabilitation centers, and chose the one recommended by Dr. Bright. I wanted treatment to concentrate on me getting better; the best therapy, not so much the food or the room decor. 27 days of being cared for, and the staff could not have been more patient with me or taken the job more diligently. I guess that is what I needed! All in all, I never heard one bad word about Dr. Bright, and I went around and around. The other hip? Dr. Bright would be my one and only choice.

Went to full tennis and racquetball this week, just 2 months and 3 weeks after a full knee replacement. It was a remarkable experience: no holding back on going after the ball, no pain or twinges, no soreness or swelling afterwards. My knee is 100% and so is my satisfaction. My thanks for helping to make this possible.
Dr. Bright: Thank you for a second perfect knee! Although meds were not right (without Celebrex) the first week, ever since then the recovery has been way beyond my hopes. I would compare the new knee after two weeks with the other one at two or even three months. It looks like tennis may be realistic in only two months. Thanks again.
11/27/2013: It's hard to put into words how much you have helped our family. You replaced both of of Brian's knees, and fixed both of his hands (carpal tunnel). Our family took a bicycle ride today, and it was great! The milestones Brian is making with his new knees is amazing. He smiles everyday now.
Dr. Bright: I just wanted to express my gratitude for everything that was done for the recovery of my knee (anterior cruciate ligament/ACL reconstruction surgery). It has been seven months since my surgery, and I surprise myself with the recovery. I am so very happy and grateful! Thank you ALL very much.
2/1/2015: It is about 4 months since Dr. Bright replaced my knee. Only 2 months after surgery, I very gingerly got back into tennis. One month later, I started playing matches in team tennis. My knee works GREAT! After I overcame my fear, I realized that I can run without pain. Now I play tennis 4 times a week, and sometimes for 2-3 hours a time. Also, I do Pilates and weight training both twice a week and take a spin class once a week. All this work has helped me recover to be healthier and stronger than I have been for years. The surgery and rehab work caused me to lose 20 lbs, and I continue to work hard to keep it off. None of this would have been possible without your amazing work. Thank You!
4/28/2015: Dr. Bright was the joint replacement Dr. for several of my friends and I couldn't be happier to have chosen him as my Dr. too. I was a candidate to have my total hip replacement done by Dr. Bright as an outpatient at Advanced Surgical Center (and not stay in the hospital!). I know...a little scary, but Dr. Bright carefully calmed any fears by reviewing the pros and cons. I decided, for many reasons,it was the best approach for me. In my case I had the surgery in the morning and was headed home just after noon the same day. BayCare home care helped me recover during the next 2 weeks from the comfort of my own home. I couldn't have been more pleased with my results! I think my speedy recovery was specifically due to Dr. Bright's excellent surgical talents, the Advanced Surgery Center, BayCare, my pre-hab/re-hab and the patient education I received prior to my surgery. Fortunately I didn't wait too long for the surgery and I strongly believe that this improved my outcome. I'm pain free now and look forward to resuming all the activities I had to temporarily give up. Thank you Dr. Bright!
I have been a patient of Dr Bright for many years..back pain, progressive osteoarthritis, broken arms,. After trying alternative treatments for my knee , Dr bright said the only solution would be a total knee replacement I followed his orders for preop PT and am now n my 2nd week of recovery. With a history of blood clots and pulmonary embolisms I was quite frightened, but Dr Bright and his wonderful patient care partner, Dr Rose Bright( who s also a pulmonologist) I felt confident and safe. Dr Rose arranged my home care and PT . The surgery and care for 2 days at SMH was outstanding. I had my 2 week check up yesterday and when I looked at the X-ray of my new knee, compared to the mushy preop picture I was amazed.Dr Bright does not use stitches or staples , but â€œglues â€œ the incision. Along with the follow up from Sarasota Home Care and PT Michael Via I am on the road to recovery.. There are no words to express my gratitude and appreciation for the concern that Dr Bright and his team provided. He is a BRILLIANT doctor always on top of the latest developments. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM
