Surgery with Dr. Wasterlain was the best thing I ever did. I had 2 hips replaced and had almost no pain at all. I was walking with a cane in 26 hours and no cane in 5 days. AMAZING!

I just did a 12 mile pain free bike ride. It felt SO wonderful. Thank you.

Dr. Wasterlain performed a total knee replacement on me 3 weeks ago (was home by 3pm the same day) and I am doing AMAZING! I walked 1.5 miles in 30 minutes today, and can bend past 120 degrees. I credit several things for my quick and easy recovery, but Dr. Wasterlain's skilled technique and team was probably the most important part! My second knee will need replacement eventually and I will definitely be doing it with her.

I can’t say enough about Dr. Wasterlain and the entire process at the orthopedic Institute at Midstate for my hip replacement. You know what’s going on every step of the way with courtesy and professionalism. Very impressive. Now let’s get down to the brass tacks. My surgery was immaculate. I experienced a modest amount of discomfort the first 2 weeks but from day 1 I could walk and do stairs without assistance (no walker or cane). Every day my mobility improved. After 19 days I was on the tennis court for an hour hitting (no hard lunges or runs) and it felt great. Hit again 2 days later. Even better. Hitting again 3 days later then hope to play a match just 26 days after surgery. Dr. Wasterlain, though young, has an amazing way about her. She’s caring, personable and kind while exuding confidence and knowledge. She loves what she does and it shows. And I couldn’t be happier with my results!!

-LA, anterior hip replacement 7/2021
"THANK YOU for the incredible, skillfully produced outcome, and for truly caring. You should be very proud of yourself as a doctor...and as just a great person who I believe does this for the "right reasons. I'm killing it in physical therapy! I am not exaggerating when I tell you my neighborhood and everyone I meet is amazed that I am only 4 weeks out."
-DK, knee replacement 7/2021
"Thank you so very much. You have been amazing through all of this, and I appreciate everything you've done for me and my leg. I'm very happy with my outcome. You are the best, this whole experience has been amazing for me!"

"We were so impressed with all the staff, their high caliber of service and caring, and the facilities of the hospital. I also want to thank you very much for doing such a good job and persuading me to go forward after having put it off for so long. I don't believe the process could have gone any smoother. I was pleasantly surprised. I'm eager to do my other hip."
-JF, anterior hip replacement 3/2021
"Dr. Wasterlain, I can't even thank you enough for everything you have done for me. You are by far the best doctor/surgeon I have come across. I will recommend you to anyone with hip/knee/reconstruction issues. Keep up the awesome work."
-JB, complex hip replacement 3/2021
"I am so grateful for the opportunity to have Dr Amy Wasterlain as my total hip replaced surgeon. We used the "bikini" approach, and I agreed to be a willing recipient of this new technique. I still do fitness modeling at 59 years old and scarring was an issue for me. My result was magnificent as I am only 4 months out and recovering beautifully! If you want a quick recovery with phenomenal results Dr Amy Wasterlain is your Rockstar🤩"
-RH, anterior hip replacement 1/2021
"Thanks again for your experience, capability and leadership – I feel fortunate to have had you on point for this procedure. I couldn't have had a better surgeon on this. I know this is one of hundreds of your surgeries, so please don’t underestimate the extent to which lives have been changed for the better because of your abilities."
- JP, anterior hip replacement 1/2021
"For the record you are not probably but most definitely the best doctor I’ve ever been with! Anyone who has the pleasure of working with you would agree! Thank you so much for all your professional as well as personal attention. You have been the most attentive, dedicated doctor that I have ever encountered in my lifetime. I truly think you are the best! Thank YOU 🙏 . ( great job ) VERY PLEASED with your work.❤️🍀🍀🙏👍🙌"

"I just want to say THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for my new hip. You are an amazing doctor!! AND...let you know that everyone (all staff) were outstanding and very attentive and caring! I feel great after my short time at Midstate hospital that felt like a day at a Spa!!! Thank you again so much. I’m so grateful you were recommended to me. You can be sure I will recommend anyone needing a new hip or knee!😊💕"

"I cannot even begin to thank you for giving me the opportunity to be able to walk pain free. I had a right hip replacement on 11/05 and immediately felt relief. Five days later I’m walking, going up the stairs and definitely doing the exercises. I’m certainly being careful and not over doing it and I look forward to walking. I have an appointment with you next week and I’m looking forward to thanking you in person."
- SS, anterior hip replacement 11/2020
"I am so thankful that I saw you on TV so that I learned about your approach to knee replacement surgery! This has made my life so spectacular! I really didn't want to have to have surgery, but thanks to your expertise, commitment to excellence in care, and skill, I am exceeding my expectations in my recovery! I also can't thank you enough for making yourself easily accessible to me for questions, discussions, help, you name it! You are a unique healthcare professional. I will be singing your praises for the rest of my life!"
- ML, total knee replacement 10/2020
"I am a 45 year old Licensed Massage Therapist. I had been dealing with severe hip pain for the last 6 years. Over these years I have had at least 2 physicians who wouldn’t take me seriously enough because in their eyes I was much to young for a hip replacement and 2 referrals to Orthopedists who wouldn’t even see me because of insurance. I had given up hope when I was finally referred to Dr. Amy Wasterlain, who took one look at me and told me that I needed a total hip replacement via anterior approach. 2 weeks later I was in surgery at 8am, walking by 12pm, passed my PT testing by 2:30 and home by 6pm. It has been exactly 3 weeks now since my surgery and I have been walking without a cane for a week and a half, I am able to drive short distances now, and aside from some minor discomfort and being tired from the healing process I am amazed at how great I feel. The pain and instability that consumed my life for the last 6 years is GONE. I couldn’t be more grateful to have been connected with her. Her assessment, her care to the point of being willing to receive phone calls and texts about any questions outside of appointments, and most of all her willingness to perform this surgery on me when no one else would even consider it because of my age. She is amazing and I will forever recommend her to anyone who will listen."
- ML, anterior hip replacement 9/2020
"I found the nursing staff to be outstanding. Probably the best hospital stay I've had, and I've had a bunch. So now I wouldn't think about going anywhere else to replace my other hip! I'm home and settled in. I'm feeling really good with minimal pain and can already walk so much better than I was able to before surgery. Thank you!"

"Thank you so much. You did an amazing job for me and I really appreciate it. If I run into someone that is having problems I will definitely refer them to you."

"From my first appt with Dr Amy W, my husband and I knew we were in the right place. Not your typical surgical consult! First, her friendliness and openess quickly put us at ease. As she studied the history and MRI of the knee in need of a revision, she was honest and forthcoming. She explained everthing in a way that was clear and easy to understand re: the seriousness of the situation, the risks and possible complications of the repair. She encouraged whatever questions or concerns we had throughout the pre and postop process and addressed each thoroughly. She made herself available anytime for any immediate needs or concerns, which made me feel secure and free to contact her if needed, which was a privilege I would make sure not to abuse. As far as the surgery, I felt confident I was in the best possible hands and I was not disappointed. Her diligence, perfectionism, her choice of the perfect OR team resulted a perfect outcome. My knee is on it's way to normal. Scale 1-10=12."
- DC, revision total knee replacement 3/2020
"Amy you're a great surgeon and you always follow through with me on every question. You're a really awesome person. I feel you're very thorough with your patients. You're an awesome surgeon and doctor. I'm really glad I got you to do the surgery. Thanks again."
- KR, simultaneous bilateral knee replacements 3/2020
"I am doing great! Slept all night! Hardly any pain just taking Tylenol. Less pain than the night before my surgery! Don't need the walker at all. You are amazing 💕💕. A friend of mine who's an orthopedic nurse picked me up from the hospital and absolutely cannot believe how good I am! Piece of cake 😂😂. Thank you I am sooo happy with my new hip!"
- SG, anterior hip replacement 3/2020
"Once again thank you for everything. You're all what they say about you and more. I made the stairs with no problem. My husband was amazed. I have to say again, we are so grateful for your wisdom and respectful advice and influence in helping me to decide on my recovery plan. You're the bomb!!"
- DC, revision knee replacement 3/2020
"Dr. Wasterlain did my total left hip replacement 2 weeks ago. She’s an excellent, uptodate orthopedic surgeon. She’s compassionate, personable, intelligent and open. She is an evidence-based clinician. I researched many orthopedists in my area and enquired into many patients experiences and recommendations. I am very satisfied that I chose Dr. Wasterlain. My recovery has been optimal. I am a retired Emergency Physician with 45 years of clinical work behind me. The highest compliment a physician can give to a colleague is that of “a physician’s physician”. Dr. Amy Wasterlain is a “physician’s surgeon”! It would be difficult to do better."
