Had right hip replacement by Dr. Mast in June 2017. 3 weeks later I was walking all over the UK on vacation with zero pain or restrictions. I coach High School basketball and not a inkling of pain or restriction. Going in today for consult on doing left hip. Dr. Mast is professional and an expert and I only expect great results. I highly recommend him.

Dr Mast replaced my hip almost 5 years ago and it is terrific to date. I exercise 7 days a week and the hip never bothers me! I highly recommend him! Thanks so much Dr. Mast! Steve Rosenblatt

Every aspect of my anterior hip replacement with Dr Mast went better than expected. The office staff was terrific, the PAs answered any questions I had, Dr Mast's pre-op instructions were clear, the operation went perfectly, the hospital was tops, recovery was a snap. Looking forward to having him do my other hip!

I had an anterior total hip replacement with Dr Mast about three months ago and cannot say enough about the success of my surgery. I have had numerous surgeries (heart, back) over the years and I was amazed at the results and the entire experience. My recovery couldn't have been any easier and my treatment both by Dr Mast and the unbelievably efficient, kind and caring team that he has put together in the hospital was beyond excellent. A move has me contemplating flying back in the future
