Dr. Sastry performed a total knee for me almost 6 years ago and replaced my left hip(anterior) this summer. Both procedures are a complete success. I will need another knee and hip in the future, and he will definitely be my surgeon of choice. Thanks, Dr. "S"

Dr. Sastry: Simply the best. Knowledge, Professionalism, Approachability, Meticulous Surgeon, Sense of humor, Stability of temperament, Answers Questions, A++ staff, accomplished 4 surgeries on me. Two anterior hip replacements, one meniscus scraping, one half-knee replacement. I am I very good physical condition, exercise and followed his post-surgery directions to a ‘T’ . I am riding my horse again, walking with my dogs and getting my stride back. Even the scars have melded in well! Absolutely meticulous in all regards! 5+ stars. Surgery performed at York Hospital. One of the finest hospitals all the way around with excellent patient after care...

I've had an anterior hip replacement as well as a partial knee replacement. Dr. Sastry did both operations. I'm very happy with the outcome.

Dr Sastry performed hip replacement surgery for me. His obvious knowledge and skill as a surgeon, combined with his extremely pleasant and light-hearted, but not cavalier attitude made an otherwise traumatic experience very comfortable and easy to deal with. Top Doc!

Dr. Sastry has been amazing from start to finish on my total knee replacement surgery. He follows up on any questions I have and anticipated my concerns at my 6 weeks post op check up. He reviewed my x-rays with my husband and myself and explained everything. Highly recommend him for knee replacement surgery and will go to him for my other knee in the future.

My husband had 2 total hip replacements done by an anterior hip replacement. He had the surgery in the morning and both times he was up and walking around the same afternoon. You follow a strict protocol that Dr. Sastry uses and the hospital staff follows it to a T. He is pleasant, professional and extremely competent and skilled and we are Boston Hospital snobs and this was the first time went outside of a Boston Hospital for any surgery.
