I had my shoulder surgery October 7th. with Dr. Coyle, and I would like to say thanks for a tremendous job before and after. Not forgetting all those I interacted with from the time started the process at the Group's office, X-ray, MRI, and Surgery scheduling, I was met with nothing less than proficiency & efficiency. On the day of the surgery, at the PreOp, Janice and Jennifer, and at PACU Susan, as well as Joan Grady, and to all the others that I didn't catch their names, you really are the utmost of caring & competence. Thank you all.May God bless you all.

University Orthopaedic Associates of NJ has outstanding doctors, each with a specific area of specialty. While this may make you think that they will not know you personally, especially if you have injured more than one body area. The opposite is true. By your second visit you will have a repore that includes kindness, compassion, and the ability to put you at ease. They will answer any question including the day of your surgery. But don't think that because they're all surgeons that surgery is their first option. Physical therapy and pain management were just two of the modalities used before we decided after 2 - 4 years of treatment before surgery HAD to be scheduled. I have been going to University Orthopaedic Associates since about 1999. My husband also needed spinal surgery and had the same positive experience with Dr. Chiappetta. When my shoulder and upper arm were injured, Dr. Leddy's response was physical therapy - not surgery. I cannot say enough tremendous things about UOA. They all provide the highest quality of care. No egos here - just sensational doctors creating an improved quality of life for all they touch.
I have seen over the past years, Dr. Doumas for my elbow injury, and Dr. Chiappetta for back and neck. I am now seeing Dr. Swan for my knee. All are excellent and I highly recommend this group of doctors.
Dr. Swan takes time explaining all procedures and is attentive to all of my problems. I am not an "easy" patient to deal with, but he is very understanding and puts my mind at ease. With Dr. Swan, I feel three is no need for another opinion. I have total confidence in his ability .
Dr. Bechler repaired my right shoulder in 2003 and Dr. Monica repaired my left shoulder in March 2015. Dr. Monica got me healed up and ready to continue my weekend warrior fun of mud races and softball. I was playing ball again in mid-July and did my first mud run (the easy one) the Rugged Maniac (a 5k run with 18 obstacles) in late July. I then prepared for the Tough Mudder that I completed last weekend which was a 10 mile run with 22 obstacles).
2016 I will find my next tough mudder in October but also try my first Spartan Beast which is 12-14 miles, 30-35 obstacles (I may need a doctors note from you so my wife will let me do it)- thanks Dr. Monica !!
