Dr. Austin performed a left hip replacement. He was very thorough in his initial exam and was extremely patient and very good in answering all questions and concerns on the initial exam. The surgery went well. He provided a good program of therapy afterwards through Force Therapy that really helped in my rehabilitation. He has been very personable throughout including on my followup visits. I am virtually pain-free. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Austin did both of my total knee replacements and I was very pleased because he listened to my concerns and my needs. My right replacement is two years old and I am very happy with the results. My left replacement is four weeks old and I am still recovering. This is a very tough surgery and recovery but I am glad I did it. The clinic in Bensalem was also excellent and all the doctors and nurses took great care of me!! Dr Austin is a great surgeon, caring doctor and I highly recommend him!!

Dr. Matt is very good Doctor. His support staff is great. I had both knees done at the same time and cannot be happier. I am at the 4 month mark and pain free. My range of motion and strength is getting real close to normal. Would highly recommend Dr. Austin. I cannot imagine someone better.

Dr. Austin and staff are very professional and friendly. They will gladly answer any and all questions you have. Thanks to Dr. Austin, he has given me back a life style I have been missing for 11 years. I had major deformities in both legs. It was very difficult to walk and forget stairs. I am now walking daily and up to 5 miles daily. Before my double knee replacement, 500 feet was an effort. I know can enjoy playing with my grandkids. Dr. Austin, thankyou! You are an amazing surgeon!

Dr Austin gave me my life back, At 43 I had both my knees replaced, at the same time. I suffered many years. Then just 6/21/17 I had my right hip replaced which I was in severe pain for a year. He is so professional and and an exceptional Physician. Mouy is the best Nurse/Assistant ever! She is patient, caring, organiezd and a wonderful human being! I am so honored to be their patient and everyone should go to Rothman for any of their orthopedic needs!

I want to tell everyone who will listen.. this team (Dr Austin, Muoy, OR staff, inpatient nurses, PT) gave me my life back!!! I remember my first appointment, Dr Austin and Muoy spent two hours with me explaining my problems, reviewing X-rays and my options. I left in tears because someone finally listened! I'm now 11 weeks from bilateral knee replacement and I couldn't have asked for a better recovery!!!

My entire experience was a totally smooth ride. Enjoyed being at Rothman for my surgery and after I joined the PT team at Newtown - I would highly recommend the therapist Christie.

From the moment I met Dr. Austin, I felt completely confident that I was with the best doctor ever! He made me feel very safe and comfortable about my upcoming hip surgery. Within three years, I had two hip replacements with Dr. Austin. To this very day, I trust him with not only my physical well being, but the well being of my family and friends. I have referred many people to him over the years.
