Dr. Alwattargave me a thoughtful preoperative evaluation and then performed an anterior approach total hip replacement. My hip was dysplastic, so it wasn't a standard case, but the result was phenomenal. Dr. Alwattar openly discussed and followed up on the one complication that occurred, and it turned out to be no problem for me.

I had two hip replacements performed within 6 weeks of each other this year. Dr Alwattar was my surgeon. Thanks to his skill and experience, both surgeries went very well. He was patient with me as I was initially ambivalent about the surgery. He is focused and calm, explains everything clearly, is highly skilled and very competent. I trusted his judgment completely and was not disappointed. I would highly recommend him to my family and friends.

Wow! This guy is a skilled sugeon and talented doctor. I destroyed my knee: broken patella and snapped the tendon. He was straight with me about the scar I would have, the amount of time I would need to immobilize and the foolishness of driving with my left foot.
