Professional, college, and amateur athletes, as well as people suffering from undiagnosed pain, travel from across the world to Vincera for treatment.
Dr. Meyers and the staff at Vincera were exceptional and exceeded all my expectations. I really appreciated the personal support Dr. Meyers showed by communicating with me post-op to address my concerns. Vincera gave me my pain free life back and an opportunity to pursue my goal of playing collegiate basketball.Read Full Story
It’s been six long years of pain, cocktails of NSAIDs, wrong diagnosis and referrals to many specialists. I have to say I am so profoundly grateful to have found Vincera and Dr. Meyers. I have traveled near and far to many Drs. in the country, none of whom, compare even slightly to Dr. Meyers and his team of professionals.Read Full Story
On Monday I ran for 40 minutes on the trails at Ritter Springs, here in Springfield. On Tuesday I road my bike to work, mowed the lawn, and did a yoga class with my wife. On Wednesday I did a 30 minute run on the streets in the neighborhood where I grew up. Thursday I worked out at the gym. On Friday I road my bike to work and also went for a 30 minute swim. This morning I ran from home for 40 minutes.Read Full Story
Three months to the day you operated on me. Today I won the 2015 USTA National Championship in Indian Wells, California.
Thanks for your expertise and steady hand. I wouldn’t have been able to play without you.Read Full Story
My son Michael Pirolli had surgery in May of 2013.
I just wanted to let the Vincera Institute know that Michael has been offered a full athletic scholarship to Bucknell University. This could not have been possible without all of you. He is doing very well and enjoying his senior year pain free! Thank you for all you have done.

Dear Dr. Meyers:
When I saw you about a year ago I had been out of work for four and a half months because of pain. Prior to that, I had worked as an emergency physician for 33 years without ever missing a day. I had been president of my county medical society, president of my state medical associations and had received many awards for my professional activities. But because of pain I had no reasonable expectation of continuing to work in the ER. I thought my career was finished. After your surgery, I was able to return to work in one month and I continue to work full time in a very busy emergency room with a census of about 300 patients a day. Thanks for your help.
I can safely say that your surgery has saved two big parts of my life. Obviously my passion for running was squashed with my injury. However, my pain became so bad from the two prior botched surgeries that I could not even play with my children without getting extremely sore the next day. I began telling my wife, I can live without running but I cannot live like this if I cannot play with my children. I also told her I would be happy if I could just run for recreational and not get sore. You have given both of those things back to me which had left a void in my life for almost three years. So I thank you for that! I am so grateful and cannot thank you enough not only for the surgery but the support after surgery. I know you work with many of the top athletes from all professional sports, but never once did I ever feel less important than any of them.
Just a quick note to thank you for acting so promptly and effectively in getting Henry the help he needed.
He played his first game on Sunday (6 weeks after surgery) and survived 90 minutes of cold wet work, so he is well on his way.
When I asked him how he felt after the game, he said that it was the first time in a year that he had played without pain. So again, thank you very much.
I would like to thank Vincera Institute and Dr. Meyers for helping me finally find a way to resolve the pain that I experienced for two and a half years after childbirth. I was starting to lose hope after seeing specialist after specialist who could not help me. I am back to being active again and only experience mild hip pain every now and then, a HUGE improvement to my quality of life! Thank you so very much for restoring my physical and emotional health. You are an answer to my prayers and the prayers of many people who love me. Thank you!
