Went back for my six-week post op for total hip replacement. He was thorough & took the time to go over everything including how to massage the surgical area to break up the scar tissue He did not seem rushed.

Dr. Watters has been there for me through two surgeries! One was a fractured hip which occured while I was at Costco. He was very instrumental in my recovery which took one and a half years to improve. He is an excellent surgeon. I have the utmost respect for him as person, as well as a doctor. Thank you Dr. Watters for the young man you have become... Edith Bradley

Dr. Watters was awesome from the start. Explained my options and kept me informed throughout the entire experience. He is very professional and made me feel as if I was his only patient. My knee feels so much better and I can do every day things (such as walking) without pain. I Highly Recommend Dr. Watters. Very satisfied!!

In April of 2019 Dr. Tyler Watters successfully performed my total hip replacement surgery. He is an outstanding skilled professional. My recovery was amazing as well as my overnight stay at UNC Rex hospital was wonderful. My husband and i felt really comfortable on our first visit. I'm one year recovered, my mobility has return no pain. My experience with Dr. Watters and Maggie has been life changing. Dr. Watters has anointing hands, I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Watters!

January 28, 2020 Dr. Watters did my total hip replacement. Throughout this process he and all the staff at Raleigh Ortho have been amazing. Everyone I have spoken to has been very helpful and friendly. I am six weeks post op and I could never express my gratitude for Dr. Watters! He gave me my life back and I can go back to enjoying an active life with my husband and children!

In February of 2019, I started seeing Dr. Watters for issues with both hips. We discussed total hip replacement for both hips and the efficacy of immediate or postponed replacement. After exhausting other treatment options, I had a total right hip replacement in October 2019 and a total left hip replacement in December 2019. As I told Dr. Watters at six week post-operative visit after the second surgery, I could not have been treated better by him or anyone on his staff. Everyone was attentive, knowledgeable, respectful, and fun. I would strongly recommend Dr. Watters and his team to everyone.

I had a total hip replacement with Dr Watters and he was great. He is skilled, professional, and caring. He is one the younger doctors in this practice and is destined to be the best. My recovery was amazing. I researched him thoroughly and he got great reviews. My results are excellent.

Dr Waters and his collective staff were very attentive to my symptoms, my questions, and talked me through the medical aspects of my knee issues. Dr Waters provided me his medical assessment and laid out the best solution to my constant knee problems. I did elect to move forward with full knee replacement and that occurred on Dec 5th at UNC Rex. Post Op attention has been stellar in both appointments and electronic communications. Six weeks in and progressing well. Great staff!

Dr. Watters and the staff at Raleigh Orthopedics were top notch for my two total knee replacements. During a pre op medical history review he asked if I ever had any reactions to jewelry. I had and he suggested I get metal allergy testing. I did, and I was allergic to two metals that are in most artificial knees. He was able to order a knee without my allergic metals. I have had great outcomes with both of my surgeries. My experience with REX where my surgery was done was also top notch. I highly recommend Dr. Watters, he was friendly, personal and gave me back my mobility.

I had both hips replaced this year with Dr. Watter's (and his team) and the outcome for me has been outstanding, life changing! He, his PA (Maggie) and staff, always professional, knowledgeable, and courteous. He always took the time to listen and answer my questions. The Raleigh Ortho surgery center was the best; such a great staff. The personalized attention and calming environment made it very comfortable and stress free. Great experience all the way around.

Dr. Watters was kind, knowledgeable, and gave me confidence that he was a skilled surgeon who would replace my hip and relieve me of the terrible pain I had been experiencing. He did a great job and 6 months later when the other hip had achieved a high level of terrible pain, I asked him to perform his "magic" surgery again. This time I healed even more quickly and can now walk like a normal person with no hip pain. Throughout both pre and post surgical appointments Dr. Watters and his Nurse Practitioner, Maggie Bradford, took excellent care of me and made sure the healing process was happening properly. They both showed me courtesy, patience in listening to my concerns and answered questions that came up at the time. They made me feel like I was the most important person they were seeing that day. For anyone needing a hip replacement I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Tyler Watters.
