I suffered with pain in my left wrist for over a decade before seeing Dr. Dinowitz. We scheduled surgery for the end of October, 2018. Without going into detail, he worked on my wrist for 2 1/2 hours doing an incredible amount of corrective work. I am now pain free, functioning normally again. Dr. Dinowitz is indeed my hero and I have told him that. His staff, Dr. Jason included were professionals at all times and so kind!
I highly recommend him to anyone in need of any orthopedic issues.
Thank you again Dr. Dinowitz, you're amazing!

-Ruth A.

My personal experience with Dr. Marc Dinowitz proved to be outstanding. He is not only an excellent surgeon, but he also is a caring and compassionate person. My wrist surgery was complicated by the fact I am totally dependent on crutches due to a permanent disability. Dr. Dinowitz and his staff did everything in their collective power to make sure my unique needs were met during the healing process. Today, my wrist is pain free, and I am most grateful to Dr. Dinowitz and his excellent staff.

I needed a revision of a 16 year old knee replacement that had already had 4 surgeries prior to the original replacement. My experience was that the office staff was efficient and friendly. Dr. Matthew Russo diagnosed the problem, communicated the risks and thoroughly explained his plan of action. I went into surgery thinking that my recovery could be longer and more difficult than the original surgery, however, I am one month out and I am back to most of my daily routines. I am delightfully pleased with my progress and the success of the surgery. I would give him a 10! And, of course recommend him to anyone needing knee replacement.

-Toni S.

I am a very active 54 yr. old facing my second total hip arthroplasty.The surgeon that performed my first joint replacement retired so I was very stressed about finding another surgeon that could match his expertise and experience. After extensive research I chose Dr. Matthew Russo to perform my surgery. His Curriculum Vitae is very impressive and I felt he would be on top of current surgical techniques . His communication competence instilled tremendous confidence . I am 6 weeks post op… I went home the same day of my surgery, walking without a cane or other assistance and have had an optimal recovery to date. Dr. Russo's staff provided seamless, attentive Pre and Post-Op visits. …. I highly recommend Dr. Russo he is an outstanding Surgeon!

-Robin L.

Dr. Russo is amazing. After seeing the same orthopedic surgeon for over 19yrs, I was very nervous when I was told I needed to see a different surgeon. He was very thorough, and honest. He took his time explaining everything to me. His staff was kind and always returned my calls in a timely manner. If you are looking for an orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Russo is your guy!

I saw a doctor about a broken vertebrae. He wanted to operate right away & he put me on opiods. I went to Dr. Kevin Khalsa for a second opinion. Dr. Khalsa took me off the opiods and put me on a muscle relaxant & an antiinflammatory. He then had me fitted for a back brace, which I wore for six weeks. After six weeks my back had healed. Then I had two months of exercises to strengthen my back muscles. I'm fine now. No risky surgery. No opiods. Dr. Khalsa did what was best for me, not what was best for his pocketbook.He is a fine doctor & I highly recommend him.

Dr. Shelden Martin gave me a sense of calm and confidence about my options available and treatment needs. He answered all my questions in detail.

He continued to stress the continuity of my therapy.

Dr. Peterson is a great Doctor very caring and through, definitely cares about his patients and recommends the treatment you need to get your health back on track. Spends a lot of time explaining your problem and treatment options.


Matthew Hansen, MD performed surgery on my daughter after a bad knee injury almost 3 years ago. She is a figure skater and is back on this ice, jumping and is 2 tests away from a gold medal in Moves in the Field. He is compassionate, skilled (I am a picky medical professional who used to work with a lot of surgeons) recognized her goals and helped her get back to these goals. He was honest about possible limitations and the time to get back to her sport. Highly recommended.

-Lisa M.

I had a total hip replacement by Dr. Ganesh. I've had a few issues due to my own adjustment. I feel he is an excellent surgeon and actually enjoy my appointments with him. He's caring, listens good and always explains what is happening so that I understand. Plus he doesn't rush through my appointment. I would recommend him to everyone. His assistant Tina is very nice and makes herself available to help out and keep you informed. This is a great visit and a greater team.

-Carol C.

In a five-year timeframe I needed both hips replaced. I cannot say enough about Dr. Wilmink and P.A. Adrienne Kelley. They are an amazing duo! Their reassurance in pre and post op put me at ease, particularly at the first surgery which made going back for the second surgery a "no brainer" for me. I was up and walking shortly after the surgery and recuperation at home was quick. Would highly recommend Dr. Wilmink!

-Paula K.

Dr. Weiner is an excellent Orthopedic Surgeon. He was referred to me by a friend that had Dr. Weiner do her knee surgery, she has fully recovered and has no pain. I called his office and they were very professional and made an appointment right away.( I had a fall and tibial fracture and was in pain.) I had surgery the next day. He takes his time and explains everything. You will never feel rushed at an appt. I am very happy with the results and would highly recommend Dr. Weiner.


Dr. Ott replaced my left hip in Oct 2017. I have been very physically active for the past 45 years, cycling, hiking & playing lots of squash. The past 6 years I had extreme pain in my groin & hip flexor, restricting my activities. After the 1st surgery, I was playing squash after 8 weeks. I then had the right hip replaced in Dec 2017, & am back to squash at 7 weeks. The anterior approach is outstanding. Dr. Ott is the most highly skilled surgeon for this method, plus you get his excellent team.

-Steven W.

I would recommend Dr. Domer to anyone. He and his staff are awesome. They are kind and friendly. Dr. Domer explains everything every step of the way. I had my right knee replaced and Dr. Domer and his staff made it a good experience.

-Karen R.

I am ever aware of the uses of our legs for transportation; and how our strides provide us with the ability to expand our horizons. Through you and your team I enjoy my freedom every day. As I look forward to celebrating a milestone birthday, my eighty, it is hard to put into words the freedom of mobility you have provided me with over these last thirty plus years. It is with heartfelt thanks that I express the joy you have brought to my life, and my entire family’s.

-Bill, patient of Dr. Vincent Russo

Dr. Ott’s entire staff is exceptional. Everybody is friendly and competent. Best doctor's office I have ever visited and I’ve been to quite a few.


This was my second, I had the left joint replaced last year. Dr. Miller is my hero, he and his staff made this whole experience a great one. I am living and enjoying my life again. Just keep doing what your doing, I can’t imagine a better experience.


I am very pleased with my knee surgery. I think Dr. Bradway is a wonderful doctor. He did my other knee in March of this year. I have had no problems at all with either knee. It is wonderful to be able to walk again without any pain. Thank you very much Dr. Bradway.


I really appreciate the professional way I was treated by Dr. Russo and his staff. I have total confidence in Dr. Russo. I continually recommend him to everyone who asks about my surgery.
