    At four weeks post surgery the most appropriate answer would have to relate to the outcome which is excellent, and maybe two weeks ahead of the norm which for me is great because I spend a lot of time outdoors, for work and pleasure.

    Dr Austin's calm gentle manner puts the patient at easy. His background is impressive. I felt totally confident that the surgery would have excellent results. I am so very pleased with Dr Austin and the entire Rothman staff and experience

    Dr Austin did a great time with my total knee replacement. He spends time explaining the procedure and does not walk out of the office as you are still talking to him. -like too many other physicians! I would recommend him highly to anyone considering this procedure

    Matt was the 3rd specialist I met and at last I could have a proper conversation about my hip. He was very clear about what was going on plus the different options available - including not doing anything immediately and surgery methods which he himself would not perform. After an excellent and frank chat we decided to operate. The day of surgery he operated at 7am, I was walking at 1pm with just a cane, and I walked unaided after 3 weeks. Only tylenol and tramadol. No oxycodene. Awesome.
