I underwent bilateral knee replacements by Dr. Hurt last year and outcome was excellent. My wife had both knees replaced this year with the same result. We think Dr. Hurt is the best...he's a great surgeon and a very good man. His prayers before the procedures were comforting and reassuring. He is five star all the way!

I can't express how good Dr. Hurt and Molly were for both of my Total Knee Replacements they explained everything in detail. I would recommend anyone needing this type of surgery to seek out these Great people. I had all this done in less than 5 months with very little pain and full motion in both knees. Fantastic!

I had my knee replacement July 15, 2019 by Dr. Joel Hurt. The surgery was done by Dr. Hurt at St. David's Surgical Center in Austin. He was very professional and explained every step of the surgery. I felt very confident in Dr. Hurt and was very pleased that he prayed with me before the surgery. I thought that was top notch on his part. It is August 27, 2019 and I have been release by Dr. Hurt. He is a very caring doctor and very knowledgeable. If you are considering knee replacement, look no further, he's your man. Thank you Dr. Hurt.

Willing to listen to patient... Warm "bedside manner"... not eager to do surgery until truly needed

I had been dealing with a workers comp situation. I had gone to an emergency room and an urgent care center before I received a referral to Dr. Hurt. When I went into his Austin office I waited no more than five minutes and maybe two more in his exam room before he arrived, he took one look at my knee and told me I had a ruptured quad tendon and needed surgery. He clearly explained the surgery and said I would need an MRI to confirm and see the severity of the injury.The office staff took over and they were like a well oiled machine working through the bureaucracy of workers comp. After the MRI and approval from WC I scheduled surgery, the team at the surgery center were incredible from the nurses to the anesthesiologist to P.A . Molly whom did such a good job closing the incision it is hardly visible. The surgery has been very successful I am back to my everyday lifestyle, and I would recommend Dr. Hurt and his staff to anyone.
