  • Location: Private practiceService: Second hip replacement

    Absolutely everything! I was treated with respect and attention, and Dr Waller's charming manner made everything easy to understand. His visits before and after surgery were prompt and caring, and I would -- and have -- recommended him to friends. At least one followed my advice and is very happy.

    when can I fly after knee replacement?

    when can I fly after knee replacement?
    Craig Waller Orthopaedic surgeon, Sport and exercise physician Darlinghurst
    For short flights I recommend 4 weeks.For long flights I recommend at least 6 weeks with precautions against deep venous thrombosis including an anti-coagulant such as aspirin or rivaroxaban, and compression stockings. Remember to do some calf exercises and move around the cabin as well. Keep well hydrated and avoid alcohol.

      Dr Waller is a complete professional and the best in the business. Having been in crippling pain just walking I know bounce around pain free. I got more than my knees back, I got my life back thanks to his genius. Rehab at Wolper was also brilliant. I could not be happier.

      Dr Waller was completely professional, very knowledgable, very helpful and compassionate. The operation was such a success and done with such precision and care. It has been only two months since my operation and I already feel the wonderful benefits. The whole procedure went very smoothly.

    • Location: Private practiceService: unicondylar resurfacing of both knees

      Coming from Qld, the office staff in arranging visits and help from Jenny, his nurse were invaluable. Dr Waller, himself was amazing, even when I had post op "stiffening" he never gave up and found solutions- I went from hardly walking and bent over to snow ski-ing again within 8 months.

      It's my aim to get all skiers back on the mountain, whether with their new ACL or new knee replacement.
      I am thrilled that it worked for you.

    • Location: Private practiceService: Bilateral hip replacement

      Dr Craig Waller performed bilateral hip replacement surgery on me at the end of April 2015. I was up and out of bed the next day! I really liked the fact that Dr Waller is extremely skilled and treated me with respect. 5 months post surgery and I'm thrilled with the result!
      Could be improved: The whole experience with Dr Waller was smooth, slick and without complication. He is exceptionally talented and has made sure he is supported by a great team. I should have done this years ago and will recommend him without hesitation to others . No pain, great scars...happy life! Thank you Craig!

      Dr Waller changed my life to be pain free. His skill with my operation, his organisation, his staff, the rehabilitation all above standard and always with a reassuring smile.

      As a medical professional I was relieved to have numerous colleagues recommend Dr Waller as THE specialist they would choose. He replaced my Rt hip in Feb/15 and will be replacing my Lt knee in May/15. My new hip is fantastic and pain free and I have full range of motion. My Lt knee is next week !

      I had a total hip replacement on 31 January 2014 performed by Dr Craig Waller. It was a total success. Prior to the operation I was in constant pain and on daily anti inflammatory medication. Now I am pain free and can do anything I wish, pain free. I should have had it done years ago. Dr Waller is awesome, thoroughly professional and approachable. I was only in hospital 4 nights & then home to do my rehab in the comfort of my own home.
      I cannot thank Dr Waller and the staff at Prince of Wales

      Dr Waller fixed my torn ACL. After 7 months I was back playing rugby better than ever.
      Dr Waller does the knee surgery for the Canterbury Bulldogs, Cronulla Sharks and St George Dragons, so I knew he would be good for my knee injury.
      His professionalism and care are second to none.Highly recommended
