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
As a marathoner with a broken foot and hand following a fall whilst running, I naturally was very concerned about healing time and what I could be doing whlst in a fracture boot and hand splint. Dr. Bright, himself an ultra marathoner and cyclist, (I had no idea until I read it in the office- How lucky was that!) took the time to to explain what my injuries were, how long things would take to heal and answered all of my questions. He also made suggestions as to how to avoid this injury in the future. As a new patient, the staff did their best to fit me in for an appointment as soon as they could. Everyone in this pactice, recptionists, x-ray techs, nurses were incredibly kind, cheerful and patient.

Much to my surprise, I got an appointment with Dr. Bright within a week of calling. He asked the right questions and came to a proper diagnosis. I had been treated for the past 4 years for a knee problem, and he discovered it was really my hip. I was very happy that I was on my way to getting my life back. The pre-op testing and classes were done quickly. I then just finished up with physical therapy and dental cleaning. All went well with my surgery.
