Dr. Ast completed partial knee on both my knees. Excellent team. I've been across the country and been to about 5 different knee guys. He's the best.

Shari Feldman N Wales, PA I have suffered with debilitating pain for many years. Dr. Ast being an excellent diagnostician, found I needed complete hip replacements on both sides. I have had my first surgery and have no pain in my leg or knee at all. I am so grateful that he was able to change my quality of life. He is very kind, professional, approachable and explains every nuance of the treatment., leaving you with complete confidence. His staff is equally professional, kind & knowledgeable.
