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.

Dr. Westrich says...

I treat hip and knee arthritis and injuries, and other disabling conditions affecting these joints. I also specialize in revision surgery, which may be needed if the original knee or hip replacement had a complication or a poor outcome. I have additional expertise in treating infections.
