Dr. Austin performed a hip revision in 2009 on a 22 year old hip replacement. My situation involved the need for stem cells and bone to replace bone loss. Totolly amazing results from a most caring and talented Dr. Austin. I am grateful for his exceptional skill, knowledge, most advanced methods and his caring manner that gave me my life back. I am enjoying a very active life with my family and grand children thanks to Dr. Matthew Austin!

Dr Austin took the time to answer all my questions, and I did not feel rushed. I had my hip replaced and went home the same day ( my preference). His team was on top of everything from admission to follow up at home. Through a prescribed schedule of muscle relaxers, inflammation reducers, and pain relievers, I was able to manage pain without regular use of narcotics. I work in healthcare and would not hesitate to recommend Dr Austin and his team.

Dr Austin is a very caring doctor, he listens to your concerns. I just wished I saw him after my knee replacement sooner then 6 months. I saw his assistant 2 weeks after surgery.

Dr. Austin is a great doctor, he explained everything about my health issue in detail and displayed what the surgery entailed. I feel very comfortable and confident with him and his entire staff. Everyone is knowledgeable, professional, helpful, caring and informative. Mouy, Dr Austin’s assistant and Brittney in scheduling are assets to the Rothman Institute as well. Very pleased with my overall experience.

My first experience with Dr. Austin was outstanding, he is the epitome of what a doctor stands for in this world of medicine that seems more about money and business. After years suffering my left knee needed to be replaced and I was sure he was no longer part of Rothman Orthopaedics but he was and I am so grateful. He's honest and caring and makes sure all your questions and concerns are addressed. To be honest I'm impressed that this Dr. has the same excellent staff he had twelve years ago. His same nurse! Mrs. Mouy displays the same patience and compassion I experienced many years back, which continues to be a part of this practice. Dr. Austin seemed surprised that I remembered Mrs. Mouy, I feel its a testament to the quality of care you will receive from the initial consult thru the entire rehabilitation process, when you leave this office your direction is clear. And the movie star good looks don't hurt either!!!! Suffice it to say a better doctor/ surgeon you will not find!!!!
