If you are curious about or seriously considering either a hip or knee replacement surgery Dr. Fadi Saied is a consummate professional who is extremely knowledgeable in his field of practice. Dr. Saied demonstrates a sincere concern for his patients both before and after a procedure and it is obvious that the complete recovery of his patients is his ultimate goal. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is suffering with degenerative knee or hip problems.
My knee surgery was very effective and recovery is smooth and going quickly.
I feel Dr Saied really cares, he is very detailed in explaining what I need, what choices for treatment are needed and benefits for each treatment. After less invasive treatment, I had a partial knee replacement. Dr Saied and his staff were very helpful on what to expect regarding preparing for surgery, and after surgery. I have to say I am so impressed, I had minimal swelling, and two weeks later going back to work partial days. Pretty amazing.
Dr. Saied is awesome at what he does. His bedside manner is combination doctor and coach with his encouragement and protocols. My experience is exactly how he described it would be. I would recommend him to anyone needing this surgery.
An extremely busy man, but pleasant to work with, and his on-line communication program after surgery makes getting any answers you need or questions asked responded to in a fairly quick way.
Dr. Saied is quick, to the point, highly efficient, and extremely knowledgeable. It was pointed out by several staff members at the hospital where I had my surgery that Dr. Saied's methods are so current (relatively new in some instances) that older doctors are now copying his methods because his patients recover so well. I had a full hip replacement, was up and walking within hours of surgery, and out of the hospital by the next day. Recovery has been exactly as he described it would be, although, it should be noted that I followed all of his instructions to the letter. I really won't trust any other orthopedic surgeon after being treated by Dr. Saied unless that surgeon meets with Dr. Saied's approval.
Dr. Saied is truly amazing. He wants to see me return to my previous activities as soon as I'm ready. I had a slow start and he was very caring about my problem and helped me understand what I needed to do to get me knee moving.
If you are needing a hip replaced, there is no one better than Dr Saied to perform that procedure. He and his staff are very client focused and offer only the very best care. The Best surgeons are no longer just available in LA!!
He was very good at diagnosing the problem. Dr Saied gave me option to try before we decided a total hip replacement was my best option, and he explained what type of hip replacement procedure was best for me. The operation was a total success, and I have full range of motion. SCOI's "Health Loop app" was very beneficial in my recovery.
Dr. Saied and his team are GREAT! The level of care and concern Dr. Saied gives his patients is outstanding. He is a no nonsense Dr. Very upfront and honest! He does not mess around. He will do what is needed with out hesitation. Very direct, he is very funny and personable. I would highly recommend him to anyone that needs a GREAT Orthopedist!
I like the thorough consultation. Explaining the primary causes of the discomfort and pain and why surgery was probably inevitable. I liked the doctors prompt and energetic manner, a positive attitude of what to do and how he was going to do it.
The doctors bedside manner is wonderful, he makes you feel like he truly cares and is concerned about your issues. He is very thorough.
I started out with left hip pain before my surgery. I went home from Memorial the next day feeling great. It's been almost two weeks since the hip replacement and my life is so much better. Dr. Saied is great!
Dr. Saied explained the procedure and post operative expectations.in a manner I could understand. My questions were answered assuring me of the success and safety of the surgery. I appreciate his directness and personable bedside manner.
Dr Said from the first visit never made me feel rushed. Looked at all the test went through the options and as last resort said surgery was going to be needed. It was totally my decision and when. As soon as I realized it was not getting better everything was put into action and the staff authorized everything needed. If something isn't right Dr. Said does what needs to be done. The part that I think is most important is I see him every time NOT an assistant who doesn't know me or what went on before.
Bakersfield has many great features and Southern California Orthopedic Institute and Dr. Fadi Saied rank at the top. The thoroughness of pre-op exam, surgical preparation, communication with a daily email for six weeks & personal attention is very impressive. PLUS, SCOI has top of the line equipment, personnel and expertise. I highly recommend Dr. Saied!
100% satisfied. Would submit a recommendation.
Dr.Saied is an amazing surgeon with a caring disposition. He came to talk to me before I went into surgery and post operatively. Each time he spoke to me he addressed me by my name, asked about my pain and encouraged me to ask questions.
Dr. Saied has a great bedside manner and explains what is going on so that it is easy to understand. The staff is wonderful. They are very helpful throughout the process. They are quick to return calls and get the answers that are needed.
I'm impressed with Dr Saied's energy and enthusiasm!!! I felt like I was the most important patient and most of my questions were answered before I had to ask them!!! I feel like a new person with my new knee and I know I know my quality of life will continue to get better, thank you Dr Saied!!!
From the first visit with the doc he was able to pinpoint the problem, gave me alternatives and after trying revolve the issue without surgery, made it an easy decision. Between having the right doctor and the right facility the experience was extremely successful. I would recommend Dr. Saied to anyone who is need of a skilled and personable Orthopedic, although he is a busy guy.
Always able to keep in touch through Health Loop. Even got an answer to a question on a Saturday. I felt like Dr. Saied was always on top of my condition.
From the first day I met Dr. Saiaed I felt very comfortable and confident he was the real thing. I'm happy with the surgery and how well I am progressing.
Doctor and his staff have been awesome with helping me to understand and to obtain all that I needed for this surgery. I would and have referred Dr. Saied and his staff to others. I knew right up front just what to expect and have not been disappointed by any aspect of this procedure.
The surgery went well and so is the healing process. When I went to therapy up here at the Kern Valley Hospital, they asked who my doctor was and when I told them Dr Saied, they said he's the best! He is a very busy doctor and is hard to get a hold of by phone. But he is the best!
He did a great job before and after the surgery. His staff was also great they answered all the questions during and after hours. I would recommend this Dr. And his staff to anyone.
Dr Saied was vey pleasant and gave me all the imformation I needed to understand what would be happening the day of surgery . The care after surgery has been exceptional by him and staff and the fact tthey check up with you daily is great . So l'm very satisfied with the care i have had .
The staff was very helpful with the entire process. I felt very comfortable with Dr Saied and trusted him completely to do my hip surgery.
Dr. Saied is very easy to talk to and very Courteous, and Prompt. He showed me my Xrays of my Knee and explained what he did in surgery and told me that he doesn't want me to have a knee replacement . His staff is very Courteous especially Melissa Waters :) . I would and will tell my family and friends. Keep up the Great Work and Thank You Very Much, Dr. Saied and Staff.
Dr. Saied's bedside manner is wonderful. He always has time for questions. Tells you what he is going to do any why. Entire staff wonderful and helpful! Had hip replacement and able to get around without walker or cane after only 7 days. Amazing experience. I would certainly recommend Dr. Saied to family/friends and will, without hesitation, return if I need another procedure.
Dr. Saied is a young energetic doctor with new ideas in knee health. I have shared his name around my circle of influence in the medicine community and all reviews have been positive. He has a great bedside manner and explains exactly what to expect in the procedure and treatment. I would most definitely recommend Dr Saied for knee work. Access to him is limited due to his busy schedule so making friends with Melissa Waters is a big benefit. Even though he is busy he always is patient and takes his time with you while you do have him.
Dr. Saied always explained things very clearly and answered all my questions. He has a great personality, and I would gladly recommend him.
I think Dr.Fadi Saied was wonderful... My experience on the whole has been great. My surgery has been 2 weeks ago today.My pain level is good.I am walking without the assiatance of a cane or walker.
Dr Saied is very professional and kind. He went out of his way to make me comfortable and make sure I understand everything that would happen and how to handle it,,I would refer him to anyone seeking a surgeon to have their knee replaced..
He is straight forward with what he expects. Good bed side manner. I like how he explained the surgery and what I should expect from it.
Dr. Saied was very informative. Took the time to explain everything and answered all my questions. He also was very straight forward with the information and didn't sugar coat anything.
Dr. Sied told me I had big problems and I would be a delicate and dificult case from my first visit. I appreciated his skilled truthful honest opion! Turns out I was his worse case in 8 years. He did a complete revision on my knee. He cleaned up a 14 year old messy replacement put in by another doctor. Yes, parts were probably worn out, but metal post do not rotate themselves! The whole knee did not fit together, EVER! I'm only 2 weeks post op, and still feel pretty lousy, but my knee does not wobble about anymore. My confident, gifted Dr. Saied has skillfully put me back together. So thankful for this man!
I was dealing with this problem for a while, then I wen to Dr. Saied office, and he went through all options I had to get better. First, he gave a cortisone shot to help with the swelling, and told about the arthroscopic procedure to fix the problem. Surgical procedure was as expected and recovery has been fast. Now I'm ready to start physical therapies to strength my muscles, and get back to normal life with no pain at all in my knee. After surgery his staff contacted me to check how I was doing, or if I had any question or concern. Very courteous staff. I would recommend Dr. Saied to anyone with knee problems.

Dr Saied has been the most amazing doctor I have ever seen. He tells you what he sees with no sugar coating. He had a seminar which was very informative, and I felt I got to know him so much better by his presentation. I went into my knee surgery with all the confidence in Dr Saied and the results show that he knows what he is talking about! I have recommended him to my friends and they are happy to find such an outstanding professional in this field. Thank you Dr Saied!
Good morning, Linda. We are so happy to hear about your positive experience. We appreciate your kind words! Thank you for taking the time to write a review for Southern California Orthopedic Institute.
Dr Saied took the time to explain what will be happening with the surgery. He explained what area I would have most pain after surgery in my knee and why there is pain. An important point and his concern to control pain with medication to speed the recovery process. With that in mind he stressed to me to be sure to do the exercises to get the muscles working again after surgery and to get flexibility back in the knee joint.

Dr Saied is one of the best doctors I've encountered he is straightforward, honest, & tells you like it is. I was in so much pain before my hip surgery and unable to walk without pain. Today after my hip surgery, it's been two and half weeks, I can walk with no pain. I would recommend him to anyone who asks about my hips.
Good morning, Tyna. We are so happy to hear about your positive experience. We appreciate your kind words! Thank you for taking the time to write a review for Southern California Orthopedic Institute.
Dr. Saied is a passionate, caring surgeon, wanting the best functioning for the patient. He is very thorough in his explanations and encourages questions. I have recommended Dr. Saied to friends and healthcare workers. What I appreciated the most was his honesty with my condition and prognosis; and supporting me in my decision for surgery, not his. The Healthloop communication is an exemplary addition to the pre and post surgical event.
Good morning, Doris. Thank you for your kind words! We're so glad to hear you feel this way. Thank you for choosing Southern California Orthopedic Institute for your care.
Dr. Saied treats us like close family and understands the life issues that go on outside of the Dr. Office. On the first visit he explained the pros and cons of the surgery explaining what would happen if I did not get the surgery and both the pros and cons of the surgery which helped us make our decision.
Dr. Saied instills confidence. He has a great ability to ease tension and explain what he is going to do and why. He is an excellent listener and speaks in layman terms. He is caring and very proactive. After surgery he communicates on almost a daily basis.
Really attentive Doctor, kind of cute he is really short.
Dr. Saied has great concern for his patients. He is very thorough when it comes to determining and establishing the necessity for treatment, which insures less trouble from insurance companies for authorization. I'm very great full for this doctor and all the resources at SCOI.
I've been extremely happy with my total knee replacement so far. Dr. Saied is precise and extraordinarily competent. He totally prepared me for my surgery answering all my questions. I have really appreciated the daily online check-in allowing me to ask any questions or express any concerns while recovering and the reply has been very timely.
