My name is Tony H. I had a partial knee replacement done by Dr. Wassef on 9/29/20. I was that person who was AFRAID of having any surgery, let alone knee surgery. BUT!! After meeting with Dr. Wassef I was very comfortable with him and his process. I went with the robot assisted partial knee surgery. Dr. Wassef and his team are THE BEST. from my prep nurse to my recovery coach. I didn't have a need for my pain meds. THANK YOU Dr. Wassef!!

Need a new hip?? STOP! GO DIRECTLY TO DR. WASSEF! I was not an easy case. Lots of prior surgeries and scar tissue. He was so excited to fix me... and he did an AMAZING job. SUPER easy surgery, he has a great staff around him and I felt loved even during this pandemic! His nurse texted me daily for support, he reached out to make sure I was good. He gave me my life back and made the entire experience WELL WORTH IT! Please see him before you consider anyone else. He is simply the best there is.

Janice Turner in COSTA MESA – May 15, 2018
Dr. Andrew Wassef is a talented orthopedic revisionist surgeon. He has the skills, knowledge and training to handle complex orthopedic revision surgeries. He is a leader who works collaboratively with his surgical team including his P.A., anesthesiologist and others. He is willing to take on the difficult surgeries. He helps the patient prior to surgery to assist them in making the necessary lifestyle modifications to ensure a positive outcome. This may be getting diabetes in control, etc.

Rancho Palos Verdes – Jan 27, 2018
Dr. Wassef is an amazing surgeon and I could not be more pleased with him and the outcome of this surgery. No question went unanswered and Dr. Wassef and his medical staff were amazing throughout the process and remain so. I have finished my physical therapy and the question I am asked the most is if I had it to do over again would I still have the total right knee replacement surgery? My answer is that as long it was performed by Dr. Wassef I would do it again.

As my Father's Surgeon, Dr. Wassef was very professional, has excellent bed side manner, and always infomative before and after surgery. He not only performed his surgery, but gave him a better quality of life. I would definitely recomment him to anyone.

Dr. Wassef performed a difficult re-do on a failed hip re-surface. I had met with other orthopedic surgeons who either had no experience with this or were unwilling to touch it. Dr. Wassef was confident and caring and did an excellent job. It has been two years and my hip is excellent, I never even think about it . I hike and ride a mountain bike regularly. I would choose him again for any joint replacements!

Compassionite is a good word to describe Dr. Wassef. He is caring and personable. His knowledge and explanation of what was to be done were clear and put me at ease. Dr. Wassef;s follow up care was excellent. He is a very talented surgeon who healed me with precision and alacrity. His manner is affable and uncondecending. I felt heard, understood, and confident. I have been in the medical system as a patient for many years and Dr. Wassef is one the finest surgeons i have had the luck to meet.

I have had two appointments with him, and the office has called the day of the appointments and cancelled my appointments. They ask for 24 hr notice if you need to cancel your appointment, but they don't give the patients the same respect!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I waited in the office for more than two hours the first time, then was cancelled on. The most disrespectful office ever.
