Dr Wassef is an incredibly skilled surgeon who treats his patients like good friends. In less than 5 weeks after my hip replacement, I was back on the dance floor. My physical therapist was so impressed with my recovery that he released me after 12 sessions of therapy. If you’re considering hip, knee, or shoulder surgery, definitely get an opinion from Dr Wassef.

Dr Wassef Performed a total hip replacement on my right hip. I found him to be outstanding in every way. Before the surgery, but very clear on in every aspect. Also, very patient with me and spent a lot of time explaining the situation. The surgery and the aftermath have been fantastic so far. The technique Dr. Wassef uses seems to smaller scar and less muscle cutting than other techniques. An outstanding performance from beginning to end.
No better doctor when you have done the worst you can to a hip and desperately need the very best. Great bedside manner. He gets 100% of my votes for the very best doctor the South Bay.
My husband had right hip replacement surgery in June 2019, and Dr. Wassef and his staff did an amazing job. He was up an walking 2 weeks after surgery. My husband says Dr. Wassef is the best!
