Testimonials: Orthopaedic Surgery

From beginning to end, my experience has been incredible. I was so afraid of having back surgery, but Dr. Chiappetta was so kind and put my fear to ease. The surgery team was incredible, as well. They kept me comfortable the entire procedure. My six weeks of rehab with Jess were a terrific experience. She rebuilt my strength and now I’m off, back into a world I knew 15 years ago - virtually pain free. Thank you.

I had a knee replacement in April. I started physical therapy in May. In July I am now able to walk, climb stairs and am able to perform my daily tasks. Kristine is a great therapist. She would always encourage me. Everyone at University Orthopaedic Associates is great.

From the minute I made an appointment with their knowledgeable staff, I felt comfortable. As a new patient, my wait time was extremely short!! I was greeted as soon as I walked into their Somerset office and treated with such professionalism. The staff is extremely caring and polite. I was treated by Dr. McDonnell for my lower back. When he said I needed an MRI, who would've guessed that an MRI and physical therapy and a surgery center is all under the same roof? There was no running around for tests. I was extremely nervous the day of my surgery, however the staff at UCAS and UOA assisted me in every way possible to make sure I was okay. Thank you, Dr. McDonnell and staff for giving me my life back! I'm now able to play basketball with my son and pick up my one-year-old daughter. Team UOA!!

Thank you to the AMAZING staff and UCAS for your assistance with my husbands back surgery with Dr. McDonnell. Amanda, Janice and Susan will forever be embedded in our minds for catering to my husband and easing his fears while maintaining extreme professionalism! I never thought the surgical process could possibly run so smooth! I cant thank you all enough!! I wish you all the best and thank you for EVERYTHING.
Dr. McDonnell Patient

Dr. Kayiaros is one of the best doctors in my 78-year-old medical experience. He is caring, thoughtful, and his credentials are beyond impeccable. He has a wonderful personality to go with his expertise as a doctor. He listens, explains, and wants to make sure the patient understands what will occur. I had a hip replacement and I think he is absolutely one of the best doctors i've ever encountered. He is so personable and has a fine sense of orthopaedic surgeon ego! Couldn't recommend him more highly!

As you walk in the front door of the UOA building immediately there is check-in desk & waiting room. This is such a plus! No roaming the halls or looking for an elevator. There is never a long wait to see the doctor. The nurse will take you to the exam room for any tests needed. This is another plus as tests are there and now. Results are given to the doctor within minutes. He then explains your results and answers any questions you may have. The staff is professional, but friendly and go out of the way to make you comfortable. This is place to be you have orthopedic problem.

I strongly recommend Dr. Matthew McDonnell and University Orthopedics Associates. Due to a large herniated disc in my lower back, I was in excruciating pain and could barely walk, but immediately after surgery, I was able to walk and move on with my life free of pain. I was incredibly pleased with the professionalism and personal care I received from Dr. McDonnell throughout the entire ordeal.

“I work with doctors all day long and I have never met a doctor like him. He connects with you on a personal level and never makes you feel like you are being rushed. When you are sending your child into not one, but two surgeries you want to make sure you trust the doctor. I trusted him immediately which says a lot about his character." Read Nick's Story
