Dr Westrich exudes competence, and his work on my hip attests to it. Now months after my surgery my total hip replacement is so solid that I forget that it once was troublesome at all. As a reflection of the high level of professionalism of his practice, I found his staff to be congenial, knowledgeable and exceptionally efficient, affording me superior assistance with the least fuss, including extending extra benefits when available. My thanks to all for a very positive experience.

I had a total knee replacement with Dr. Westrich at HSS on Feb 25, 2016. I was extremely pleased with the entire experience from the hospital staff to the room that I was given. I saw the sunrise from my window every morning which was good for my mind. The Dr was very patient and informative and welcomed questions. 9 weeks after my knee replacement I went to Italy and enjoyed having no pain. I know that my other knee will need to be replaced yet I have no reservations about doing it.

My arthritic hips not only caused hip pain, but bad back pain as well, for many years. I was referred to Dr. Westrich, and although it took a few weeks to get an appointment, it was worth the wait. He made the correct diagnosis, patiently explained my options and what to expect, and inspired total confidence. After hip replacement surgery, all of my pain vanished. Thanks to Dr. Westrich and the Hospital for Special Surgery, life is good.
I waited 2 months for an appointment and drove 3 hours one way. The place suggested online to stay the NEw York Presbyterian Guest house was hard to find and not particularly clean. It was also very expensive for one night. Date given for surgery was 2 months later. So having been diagnosed in November of 2016, I contacted HSS immediately and surgery was March. No thanks.

Dr. Westrich is an excellent surgeon. 6 weeks after my surgery, there is no pain in my right knee and it is healing strong. I am already walking with authority. Dr. Westrich has excellent bedside manners and answered all my questions concerning this surgery. His support staff handled all my scheduling and paperwork promptly and professionally. I recommend him without hesitation for total knee replacement surgery.

He has rigid rules and will not see a patient if not all requirements are met. I had a painful torn meniscus, had my MRI, even the disc but because my rheumatologist's did not give me my X-ray even though I asked, twice, saying the doctor will not need it since I have an MRI, Dr Westrich refused to examine me. Also, husband office staff is rude, unhelpful and unprofessional.

Dr. Westrich is a caring physician and an outstanding surgeon. He explained exactly what to expect when I was scheduled for knee replacement surgery. Dr. Westrich did an excellent job, my pain is gone and my recovery was great. I also received excellent care from the staff at the Hospital for Special Surgery, where Dr. Westrich is based. I highly recommend Dr. Westrich and the hospital.
