The worst experience of my life

I had an accident walking my dog in May 2018 and severely fractured my hip. It has now been established by 2 other reputable ortho docs that I should have had a hip replacement, but Dr Moussa decided to just do a repair on a severely fractured hip with osteo porosis. In the emergency room, I was not given {and admittedly, did not ask for) any options or a doctor for a hip repair, BIG MISTAKE and I ended up with a failed painful surgery, one leg an inch and a half shorter and nothing said to me by the doctor about any of the side effects of HIS surgery choice, before or after the surgery. in fact this man barely said 2 words to me before or after the surgery. I eventually asked him to apologize for not telling me he had left me with one leg shorter than the other. I have since found an exceptional surgeon who not only replaced my hip in one hour , but painfully for him and me removed Dr Moussa's failure., and thankfully was able to restore my inch and a half diffence. After 5 months and 2 surgeries, I am on the mend, my legs match and I should be walking without a hitch at the end of my second round round of PT. If you are looking for a surgeon to repair your hip or knee, run, no matter how much it hurts away from Dr Frank Moussa,. He is the worst I have encountered in my entire life and the surgeon that had to repair Dr Moussa's failure would tell you the same.

One Star

Did not feel Dr M took my care seriously. Since I have MS, he made no attempt at helping me heal since I don't walk on my foot. Disregarded any pain. The orthodist he recommended said the scrip made no sense for my hand injury.

3 down, one to go!

Dr Moussa has replaced both of my wife's knees and one of mine. The office staff and surgical team were stellar! I had my surgery in the early morning and Dr. Moussa appeared in my hospital room @ 8:30PM to see how I was. When I had 'challenges' with insurance and disability paperwork, Diane and Luz coud NOT have been more helpful. I agree with another reviewer-if this is not your doctor, you are not getting the BEST care!

As an ASSISTANT........Nothing like a little power !

Would recommend Dr Moussa to every one I know. However dealing with one of his assistant has been a major problem, Attitude on the phone is not acceptable in a health environment. Messages left for Dr Moussa have been unanswered and I had to make an office visit for something that could have been resolved on the phone....... Not appropriate for a physician office. Assistant needs re-training !!!!!

More about Dr. Frank W Moussa

Dr. Frank Moussa was born in Kansas City, Kansas to a father who was Ph.D. and a mother who was a nurse. Given this background, it was no surprise that he grew up to become a physician. During high school, Dr. Moussa applied to the six year honors medical program at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. This program allowed him to complete both undergraduate and medical school in an accelerated six years instead of the rational eight years. During medical school, Dr. Moussa found his passion in orthopedics. Originally, Dr. Moussa wanted to become a cardiac surgeon, but found orthopedics, with its emphasis on the mechanics of the human body, to be much more enticing. He went on to do a residency at the University of Missouri-Columbia. During his residency, he was first exposed to the care of the athlete through the Division I Missouri Tiger Football team, which was part of his orthopedic training. Dr. Moussa received multiple honors as an orthopedic resident including being given the award for Best Resident Research. Additionally, he was given the honor of being awarded Best Teaching Resident during his Chief Resident year. This award was given to the resident who best taught other residents and medical students the art and science of orthopedics. Dr. Moussa furthered his orthopedic training by doing a sports medicine fellowship. This additional one year of training focused on advanced care of the athlete. During this year, he was a Sports Medicine Fellow to the NFLs Kansas City Chiefs. During his fellowship year, he was Clinical Instructor of Orthopedic Surgery at the University of Missouri-Kansas City teaching residents the latest techniques in sports medicine. Dr. Moussa moved to the Phoenix/Scottsdale area in 2000 to join Phoenix Orthopaedic Group. Dr. Moussa was an assistant team physician for the NFLs Arizona Cardinals from 2000 to 2006. During this time, he was involved in game day coverage of NFL games as well as the evaluation of the athlete at the NFL Combine. Besides Sports Medicine, Dr. Moussa has extensive experience in fracture care. Dr. Moussa took eight years of Level I calls at Scottsdale Osborn trauma center. There, he operated on some of the most difficult fractures that are often associated with high energy trauma. Joint replacement is another keen interest of Dr. Moussa. He does the most advanced total knee replacements using Biomet Signature technology that allows each total knee arthroplasty to be individually customized to each patient, even before the patient goes to surgery.
