What People Say About Dr. Eric Heinrich, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. Heinrich and Orthopedic Specialists of Austin have performed joint replacements for; - Both knees - Rt. Shoulder - Lt. Hip - Carpal tunnel retreat on both wrists And recommended a most qualified Spinal surgeon to fuse L5 &L6. I come from a lifetime of American Football that concluded with 12 years in The National Football League. Of all of my teammates that have had total joint replacements, I have had 100 % satisfaction. I am so very Blessed to have chosen these fine surgeons to increase my quality of physical health way beyond all of my peers. With absolute confidence I am recommending Dr. Heinrich and his most capable and compassionate staff as anyone's first consultation any skeletal concern. Blessings of Strength, Jerry Sisemore

Dr. Heinrich and his staff provided excellent care for my recent visits and knee surgery. They were ALL very professional, caring and informative. They seemed to pay attention to every last detail, most especially to me as a patient showing great concern and care every step of the way.The Muve facility and its staff where the procedure was done is top notch.

Dr Heinrich has been my ortho since 2006. He replaced my hip in early 2007. He also replace my knee in 2015. I recommend him to all my friends. I would not go to another Dr. Dr Heinrich has always been great. All my surgeries have had excellent results.

Dr Heinrich initially did my hip scope repair surgery of my labrum. The surgery was a success as I did not have pain for about six years. Unfortunately I ended up re-tearing my labrum and needed a full hip replacement. Dr Heinrich- also performed a full hip replacement for me and I am doing well. I am eight weeks out and much better. I would definitely add to Kate Dr Heinrich. He and his staff are very helpful and are there to meet all of your needs. I would recommend using MUVE hospital if at all for hip replacement.

Dr. Heinrich has now replaced both of my hips and I will definitely keep him as my Ortho doctor for the rest of my life or however long he chooses to practice. I have known Dr. Heinrich for 6 years now and every time someone asks me who is my Ortho Doctor and I tell them, they all respond in the same manner, "Oh, you have a great doctor and he always does exceptional work". Yes, indeed, I have found that to be true, but in addition to that, he is very personable, listens to your concerns, and makes sure you know you will be well taken care of. I feel very fortunate to have him as my ortho doctor!

Dr. Heinrich replaced both of my knees. I had originally seen a local rockstar orthopedist in June 2018. His first available surgery was in January 2019. I couldn’t wait. A friend recommended Dr. Heinrich. He scheduled me for August 6. Surgery went great. Dr. H has great bedside manner. He listens to concerns and takes time to answer them. He cares about you. His team is stellar. Both Frank and Kim set the bar high. Together, they meet your every need. I highly recommend Dr. H!!

Dr. Heinrich is an amazing surgeon! His team at the Muve in Lakeway is helpful, thorough and with you every step of the way through your recovery. They are available 24/7 and if you have a question they respond to your text message or phone call within minutes. I highly recommend Dr. Heinrich and his team. I had a complete hip replacement and I feel better and have better mobility than I have had in a quite awhile. Their level of care goes above and beyond!

Dr. Heinrich is an excellent surgeon and has an incredibly kind manner with his patients. I would highly recommend him for replacement surgery. I had both knees replaced this year, one in June and one in October. I am doing well and enjoying freedom from chronic pain. His staff is very knowledgable and will teach you how to care for yourself after surgery and will be available literally 24 hours a day to answer your questions or concerns. You can trust this surgeon.

Very exact and to the point, with his assessment of my knee problem. I had a total knee replacement just 3 months ago. Like I was told, it's a long recovery period , but I can see improvement every day.

Dr Heinrich replaced both of my hips. I haven't walked this well in over 20 years, and no more back pain. He is interesting and friendly. He seems to care about his work and how it can help me. Everyone I've had contact with is pleasant and professional. I believe you could not find a better orthopedic surgeon!

I had a total hip replacement with Dr. Heinrich in May. The care I received from him and his team before, during and after the procedure has been nothing short of excellent! I have been amazed at my recovery and have been recommending him to everyone who comments on how well I'm doing! I am very, very grateful!
