What People Say About Dr. Gautam Siram, MD
RecentMost Helpful

1 1/2 months post op, total hip replacement and feeling good. Biking from the 2nd or 3rd week, and now squatting with light weights, swimming, etc. There was secondary soft tissue pain for a while, but my hip feels strong. Dr. Siram impressed me from the start with his excellent bedside manner and thoroughness. I'm only 50, but have had much experience with orthos, and he's up there with the best. My only complaint is the sometimes inconsistent administrative staff, which is expected from a large practice. I won't diminish his stars because of that. I'll def return for my impending knee surgery. Be your own best advocate!

I went to Dr. Siram to consult with him about minimally invasive knee replacement surgery. I found him to be very personable, knowledgeable, and thorough. In fact, he pointed out that I my be able to get by with a partial knee replacement instead of a total knee replacement, something that my previous ortho doctor did not point out. But just to be certain, he sent me for an MRI to check for any hidden damage, which my other doctor also did not suggest.

I had partial knee replacement and it was very successful. Since then I have recommended several friends and they too have had knee replacements and are also very pleased.

My Physical Therapist says that Dr Siram’s patients are noticeably better after surgery and was not surprised at my fast and excellent progress. Dr Siram also uses an app that gets you an answer to questions/concerns immediately. Twice I had questions and got answers in 8 mins and 12 mins, even on weekend. Beyond comforting! Will go to Dr Siram soon for second knee.

Dr. Siram is probably the best orthopedist in the DC area for knee and hip replacement surgery. His advanced post-residency fellowship training in minimally invasive techniques means his patients heal more quickly with less pain, and reach their recovery goals in less time. On top of that, he is compassionate and highly available to his patients. As a physician myself, I would recommend him enthusiastically.

I needed hip replacement surgery on both hips having issues as a result of Paget’s disease. I had my right hip done in March and my left hip done in September. Thanks to Dr. Siram who did both hips the quality of my life has improved tremendously. Not only is he an expert at his job, he is polite and answers every question clearly and thoroughly. I recommend him highly to anyone considering hip replacement surgery.

Dr. Siram is excellent. Two weeks after a full knee replacement by him I cannot believe how good I feel. Though I'm still healing, I am fully mobile and have been off any kind of prescription pain-killer for over a week. He is a very clear, thoughtful and enjoyable communicator and attentive to his patient's needs, emotional as well as otherwise. He is a relatively new member of a practice that I have gone to for years and in which I have complete faith and trust; The picked the right person!

Dr. Siram's care and attention to my case has been exemplary, both pre- and post surgery. This has been the first and only major surgery that I have ever experienced in my life, and I am thankful that I was fortunate to find Dr. Siram to shepherd me through the process.

Dr Siram is a great doctor and I would strongly recommend him. His skill in the operating room is amazing. My PT told me Dr Siram's patients recover quicker because of the extra care he takes in the Operating Room. His out of OR skills are strong too. Dr Siram is personable, approachable, and genuinely cares about his patients. I traveled from Florida at my own expense to have both knees done by Dr. Siram. I think he's that good!

Dr. Siram replaced my right knee. He is amazing. Pain was much less than expected and totally manageable. Walking the day of the surgery, only one night in hospital. Very fast recovery. Dr. Siram is in touch with his patients everyday with a special app for two weeks before and two weeks after surgery. He tells you every day what to do and what to look for. You can send him photos if you have a question about your recovery. So grateful to Dr. Siram! Highest recommendation possible
