Hip, Joint Replacement, Knee, Shoulder, Sports Medicine
The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Lilly.
“Excellent bedside manner, competent, right on with diagnosis. Dr. Lilly is patient, kind, and explains things very well. He gave options and recommended surgery only after we had discussed everything. I have sent him 2 other patients who have both loved him and appreciate his knowledge and expertise. I had carpal tunnel syndrome and had grown weary of the problems I was having with this diagnosis. Dr. Lilly fixed it perfectly and I received fantastic care at Pardee Hospital. I was not worried in any way and recovered quickly. I would repeat the surgery if I had to without hesitation and would request Dr Lilly. He is just stellar.”

“Dr. Lilly is the 1st Orthopedic doctor that I've seen since I've been in Asheville that I completely trusted. He had a way of putting me at ease and showing compassion. Sadly, due to my other issues with nearing dialysis, Dr. Lilly is unable to help me at Pardee. Circumstances entirely out of his control.”
– Daniela S.
“Dr. Lilly is a skilled surgeon who did a wonderful job repairing my broken wrist. He is also kind and approachable.”

“As Dr. Lilly once told me, "Sara, I'm a surgeon, not a magician"! But I know for a fact, that he is magician! Having had ankle surgery, rotator cuff surgery, and latest fractured femur surgery, he is indeed a magician! When I was in the emergency room and X-rays showed the break, I told the attending that no one but Dr. Lilly was going to operated on my fractured femur. As luck would have it, Dr. Lilly was on call and I was so relieved! I have always been in total awe of Dr. Lilly's skill and beside manner. Dr. Lilly takes the time to explain everything to me and for one who is terrified of surgery, his explanation is more than welcomed to me. The aim of my letter to Dr. Lilly is to pay tribute to an outstanding Orthopedic Surgeon whose workload appears to be above the norm. I can't imagine how he manages his home life and his practice, often being called out in the middle of the night to see a patient needed immediate surgery. They just don't make them like Dr. Lilly anymore and I so appreciate his sense of humor, his professionalism, and that bright smile of his. I am always comfortable when I know I'm in the hands of Dr. Lilly. There aren't words enough to express how grateful I am to Dr. Lilly. I am sure that your days are filled with patients asking more questions than you have time for and anxious to hear their test results. I feel confident that you chose this career path because you wanted to help people in their time of need. I am so glad that I was able to experience not one, but three of those surgeries. On one of those surgeries you even sent me to Duke to the Chief of Plastic Surgery and Chief of Orthopedics who literally saved my badly burned ankle, For that, I am extremely grateful! My recovery was long and required 3 daily dressing changes but in time, it healed - not a pretty sight but at lease I Have an ankle! So thank you for sending me to the best. The office staff, hospital staff were amazing. One nurse in particular, Nina, was an angel. The night after my surgery I had the worst migraine of my life and was throwing up and in severe pain. Nina stayed with me until the headache lighted up and she was wonderful. All of the misses were just awesome and I couldn't have had better care. Thank you, Dr. Lilly, for everything too did and always do for me, Again, this was supposed to be a letter of praise for all that you have done for me. I appreciate you so much and it is my opinion that you are the best of the best of the best of the orthopedist surgeons at Emerge Ortho. Please don't ever leave for another practice. Ever!”

“I saw Dr. Lilly with a painful knee. Turns out it wasn't my knee after all, but was my hip, and I needed a total hip replacement. I had the surgery last summer and have done Great! Dr. Lilly had operated on me several times, my husband and my son-in-law. We wouldn't go anywhere else. He is a terrific, caring professional who truly takes good care of the patient and the family. I would recommend him without any reservation.”
