I had been having some ortho-issues with my 13 yr old hip replacement, while up north. When arriving in Florida I wanted to schedule a get-acquainted visit at Coastal Ortho.( which was recommended to me), in the event of a real ortho emergency, landing me in ER at the mercy of some yahoo from the ortho pool. Just as I had been told up north, it was time for a revision. Every staff member that I encountered at the hosp told me how fortunate I was to “get” Dr. Cashen! The truth indeed! Kind, knowledgeable, but, one heck of a great surgeon! I am only 14 days post op, but, am certain that my years-long pain has been eradicated through the revision, by Dr. Cashen. Kudos to him!! If YOU are as lucky as I was, you may get in to see him too. Now I’m the one making the recommendation.
Being a snowbird I had a choice to have my knee replaced either up north or in Florida. I chose Florida and I am so glad I did. Dr. Cashen did the surgery and I couldn’t be happier with the results. Dr. Cashen and anyone working with him have been so professional and pleasant. I could recommend them 100%.

Every aspect of surgery explained. No surprises. Dr. Cashen was a master for both of my (TWO) total knee replacements. Due to osteoarthritis, both knees needed replacement; the 1st in August and the 2nd in December. I completed PT and followed directions. I can happily say it is ‘good to walk again’! Camille, the PA was excellent in her follow-through and Eddie, one of the techs did an excellent job in removing staples, and my incision scars are hardly noticeable. GREAT EXPERIENCE!

I had my left hip replaced by Dr. Cashen. I highly recommend him and am completely satisfied with Dr.Cashen, the procedure, and the care I have received from him and his staff.
Dr. Cashen has both the personality and technical skills to take care of you. He replaced both my hips. I have nothing but praise for him and his team.

Was very impressed with Dr. Cashen and his team. He did two hip replacements on me and each went very, very well. I would highly recommend this doctor.

Dr. Cashen replaced both of my hips about 1 year ago and I am a new person. I went to him almost unable to walk with my hip pain and after both procedures, I was pain-free. Dr. Cashen and his staff are the best. They are not only knowledgeable but very kind and caring. Dr. Cashen always has a smile and is very easy to talk to.

I told Dr. Cashen that he was an artist and I am in possession of one of his most inspired masterpieces. I love my knee! I am 3 1/2 weeks post surgery and I still find myself gazing at my legs in admiration of the wrokmanship. I never expected that he could straighten my crooked leg, too. I will be forever grateful for Dr. Cashen’s extraordinary talent and expertise. The transformation is life changing and so much more than I expected.

Dr. Cashen made it possible for me to resume my life – work and play – without pain just four weeks after hip replacement! After two weeks, I was able to move freely and after three weeks, I was able to walk over a mile and go up and down steps with ease. After three weeks, I had no pain period. Now, at four weeks, I am able to drive and do every activity I was not able to do before the surgery due to pain. I feel like I’m a walking miracle, thanks to Dr. Cashen. I am so grateful for the care and expertise he brings to his work. I appreciate him and give thanks to him for a life without pain. Thank you, Dr. Cashen, miracle worker!

Dr. Cashen was recommended by Dr. Valadie because of the extreme difficulty of my knee surgery. (Already had a plate). Dr. Cashen took a great deal of time studying the x-rays, over and over again then went over several different options for surgery. We couldn’t have been more pleased with the ENTIRE experience!! From the doctor to the staff and surgical center. EXCELLENT CARE!! I was back to work and umpiring in 5 weeks!! Amazing.

Excellent surgeon..he has a special set of skilled surgeons hands…I was bedridden for a year, unable to do daily things…he took a chance with me doing bilateral hip surgery 3 months ago…that’s right, both hips same day! I woke up from surgery with no hip pain, and was free or surgery pain within days. Today, I’m working at rehab to be the best 72 yr old I can be…God gave Dr. Cashen the gift of surgical skills…..Dr.Cashen gave me the gift of life!! The best!!

I could barely walk when I first saw Dr. Cashen about my hip; I had extreme pain. He recommended hip replacement surgery, the anterior approach. He confidently explained that the procedure would be minimally invasive and that I would recover all my mobility. I was walking the afternoon after surgery. Within 2 weeks I had resumed almost all of my activities and within 8 weeks, I felt no limitations, have been very active, and have no pain. Dr. Cashen gave me my life back!!
Thank you for my new hip Dr. Cashen, which I received February 15th, 2016! Took off in my RV for Alaska in April and am having the time of my life and feel amazing!
I am very pleased with Coastal Orthopedics. They were very helpful in my recovery from hip surgery. I had two hip replacements by Dr. David Cashen. Thanks for all your work in making me pain free.

Dr. Cashen was very cordial, and fully explained options for my arthritic knee. He answered my questions patiently and completely. I could not have asked for a more satisfactory consultation.
I was recommended to Dr. Cashen by a co-worker who had gone through knee replacement. From the moment Dr. Cashen walked into the examination room, I felt totally at ease with him. He had a big smile on his face when he came in and immediately shook my hand. He explained how I would be a candidate for bilateral replacements because my knees were in such bad shape. He really took away any fears I had about the surgery and I looked forward in anticipation for my surgery day.
Dr. Cashen is the best! I could hardly walk and had to use a cane before knee replacements. I now walk without a cane. Yeah!!!!!
Dr. Cashen was a true blessing for me. After two unsuccessful hip surgeries, he was able to diagnose the problem and find a way to help me. He is the most caring doctor I have ever met. He takes care of his patients and doesn’t shuffle them off to assistants, never to be seen again. I cannot thank him enough for all he has done and give him the highest marks available.
Dr. Cashen is everything a Doctor should be, caring, bright and a wonderful listener. I’d strongly recommend him and his staff.
I found him to be thorough and attentive, two things I admire most in doctors and after searching the area, I chose to drive to this doctor further away for experience. Thank you.
