My experience with Dr. Saldanha was excellent. I had been seeing another Doctor who had differing concerns about my knee. When I went in to see Dr Saldanha, he made me feel at ease, examined my knee, and very kindly told me that it was time to get it replaced. He explained the procedure, what to expect, and fully answered my questions. I've heard that when you get a joint replaced, it's a very painful thing. The first few days were rough,, but Dr Saldanha and his team stayed on top of that, and within a week I was comfortable walking around the house without support. There was no fear in the getting the procedure done or in recovery. PT keeps in touch, and while I wouldn't say it was fun, I can say I'd do it again without any qualms.

Extremely kind mannered. Very through with exam and explaining his diagnosis. Seems very conservative in his approach to my treatment with no rush to do surgery. He suggested we start with cortisone & antinflammatory injection. I would certainly recommend him. So glad to have him in Williamson County. Thank you for your service Dr. Saldanha.

Dr. Saldanha did a complete hip replacement for me and I have been more than happy with my results. I had very little pain and I was walking without assistance at a little over five weeks. I have been treated with the utmost respect and dignity by Dr. Saldanha and his entire staff. I would recommend Dr. Saldanha to anyone who needed any of his services, he takes the very best of care for you.

My 88 year old mother in law broke her hip on a Saturday morning at 4:30 a.m. Being new to Austin we didn't know where to begin to go for help, but she was taken to the St. David medical center hospital in Round Rock where we met Dr. Saldanha. He was the most well informed, reassuring Doctor we have ever had! He answered all our questions in terms we could easily understand and was confident he could fix her hip and get her walking again. And her recovery has been excellent! I'm a retired RN. :)
