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. :)
