Wonderful ortho doctor! No one knows I've had hip replacement until I tell them.
in Houston, TX |
I was referred to Dr.Goytia by a trusted family member. I found him personable,knowledgable and the best physician for my procedure,i plan to use him again next year for my other knee. I feel I recovered quicker because he was my surgeon,i had minimal pain and the best medial advice and physical therapy available.I had a total knee replacement. This is the doctor you want if you need knee surgery.

Best decision I could have made! I had suffered horribly with knee pain for over 10 years. Dr. Goytia gave me a new lease on a healthy and mobile life. After surgery, I began walking right away. I took my physical therapy seriously and now walk better than I have in over a decade. No more pain or horrible limping. I would highly recommend everyone to select Dr. Goytia as their orthopedic surgeon. His staff is awesome too. Just a great experience all around.
in Houston, TX |
I was referred to Dr. Goytia after an original knee replacement from another provider was not successful. Dr. Goytia did an amazing job and I've had no problem for three years. I would highly recommend him to anyone knee surgery. He is the best in Houston!

I had a previous femur fracture near my left bone and bone knee due to injury 10 years ago. He looked at the x-rays and took a lot of time to explain the need for a rod into my femur. I had the surgery done. Wonderful and skilled Dr. Thank-you very much for the time and care you have given me.

Dr. Goytia is highly trained an extremely competent. How lucky for those of us who have been treated by him, that he has a degree in medical engineering and has chosen to be an Orthopaedic Surgeon. He is gentle, kind and caring and has a great staff to assist him. He has given my life back to me.

Everything was excellent. The pre-surgery visits, the surgery, after-surgery visits, all were excellent. I highly recommend Dr. Goytia for healthcare. His staff is very efficient, helpful and friendly. I will definitely see him again if needed.
in Kirbyville, TX |
I have had knee replacements on both knees 11 years ago at a different facility. The experience I had with Dr. Goytia and his staff far surpasses my experience 11 years ago. Dr. Goytia and staff was very knowledgeable and courteous. I would definatly recommend them to family and friends.

I had 2 total knee replacements by Dr Goytia in 2015. Before surgery I could not go to the grocery store or walk my dog and I lived with extreme chronic pain everyday. I now have no pain at all. I have completely resumed all activities of daily living, exercise, walk, and enjoy life again. Dr Goytia's surgical expertise gave me my life back.

Dr Goytia performed a much needed hip revision and it has been a wonderful experience dealing with him and his staff. The surgery went well and recovery from surgery was uneventful.

My husband had surgery with Goytia 2 years ago. He was able to correct a horribly botched surgery with great success. I have now referred my father for surgery. I trust him and his staff and they have a wonderful bed side manner and are always willing to help and answer questions. We travel over 2 hours in order to this doctor and his staff.
in Houston, TX |
Dr. Robin Goytia and his staff is the best orthopedic doctor in the United States! Seriously. After 6 weeks out and I am feeling great and no longer limping. Use this doctor for any knee or hip replacement and your quality of life will improve! Don't put it off.

This is my second knee replacement. My first was done years back by someone else and I had issues with that replacement. Dr. Goytia and his staff are awesome. This knee replacement went great and therapy is also. I could never thank Dr. Goytia enough for giving me my life back to enjoy doing the things I love to do. Thank you I have also referred him to a friend of mine. Thanks again for everything.

Love my new hip!
in Houston, TX |
the experience has been awesome - extended my ability to continue my physical activities
in Cypress, TX |
Fantastic outcome, I should have had my knee replaced much sooner. Dr. Goytia and staff are the best. The office visits run on time without the long delays I have experienced with other offices. Texas Orthopedic Hospital is an excellent facility and I was very happy with my short stay there as well.
in Katy, TX |
He gave me excellent results for both my hip and knee replacements..
in Magnolia, TX |
was very pleased with the doctor and staff
in Houston TX |
I had a bad situation with infected knew replacement. After removing it, antibiotics, etc it was replaced. I did well for about a month. When I was in PT, no restrictions were placed even though this was my third replacement, and my knee popped out. NY previous ortho had put me in the pool for PT and warned me not to bend to extremes for three months. Anyway what this dislocated knee replacement led to was 8 surgeries that ended with amputation. Very dissatisfied.
in Bay City, TX |
This doctor took my staph infected knee and after 2 surgeries had me on my way to recovery. My new knee was installed on Dec. 22 and here it is only 3 months later and I am at 131 degrees flexion and -2 degrees straight out. Very pleased. It was not a walk in the park but the results are looking so good.
