In the spring of 2013, Dr. Marc Lamb performed my carpal tunnel and trigger thumb surgery with great success. I had tremendous pain and numbness all the time and it affected my daily working life and sleeping at night also. I must say my outcome was that I no longer experience any pain or numbness…Read more.

Earlier this year, I ruptured my Achilles tendon playing basketball. My early thoughts of surgery in a hospital for the first time had me extremely concerned. I had no idea of what to expect going forward. However, from the very first office visit, Dr. Hasan has been absolutely wonderful. From her first diagnosis where surgery…Read more.

I started seeing Dr. Vannozzi for an old injury to my right knee. He was doing injections in the knee in preparation for knee replacement surgery in the near future. Then, when I injured my left knee at work, I knew immediately that I wanted Dr. Vannozzi for it also. He was caring and considerate…Read more.

I was suffering from chronic knee pain for several years. During my recent vacation to Florida, the pain was so severe that I was in a wheelchair for the entire vacation. That was it. I decided for knee surgery for relief. I always thought that recovery was a very long and painful process. I went…Read more.

My wife and I call Dr. Gutowski “THE MIRACLE MAN”. The doctor’s bedside manner was really impressive. All my questions before the operations were answered. Although the procedure and rehab came with a good amount of pain, I never thought about not having the second surgery. Dr. Gutowski and his staff prepared me for the…Read more.

I consider it my good fortune to have become a patient of Dr. Pressman since 2007 when he replaced my first hip. Since then, he has replaced my other hip and two shoulders with excellent results. I have obviously found him to be very skillful in addition to being a very kind and compassionate man.…Read more.

Professionalism with a personal touch – this is the most direct way I would summarize my experience with Dr. Gecha and team. From the initial visit to the prognosis and discussing my treatment and surgical options, Dr. Gecha clearly articulated the full scope of my surgery and the recovery. The surgery itself went incredibly smooth…Read more.


Michele S.

Dr Gecha is the very best. I am a 19 year old varsity college swimmer who slipped leaving the pool, fell down a flight of stairs and severely hurt my knee. After over 9 months of physical therapy, two MRI’s and having seen two orthopaedic sport medicine doctors I was still constantly in severe pain…Read more.

I feel very unfortunate to have had two accidents resulting in two (left & right) rotator cuff, biceps, and related surgery. However I feel VERY FORTUNATE that I was in the care of Dr. Jeff Abrams, Herb Williams, and the Princeton Orthopaedic support staff after my first accident. Several of my friends told me to…Read more.

“Our experiences with your wonderful organization have been outstanding. My wife, Michelle, was the first to be treated for a broken wrist by your Dr. Marc Lamb, who did an outstanding job.

Theodore F.

“I’m beyond thrilled with the outcome of my procedure by Dr. Song. Prior to my surgery, I couldn’t lift my arm above my chest – now I am back to golf and can easily lift my arm above my head. Dr. Song was upbeat and optimistic. My recovery went better than I expected – in…Read more.


Helene B.

Dr. Song was absolutely wonderful. He is very “real”. He worked with my goals: I am very active: Zumba 4 days a week/skiing. He never pushed me towards surgery – we tried other conservative options first. Then he explained exactly what to expect at surgery and for my recovery. He called me that night to…Read more.

Dr. Stacey Miller-Smith helped me get through a lot of pain. If it weren’t for her, I would not be able to move without pain.

Dr. Fleming, we would like to thank you for the care you provided our son, Bradley, after his clavicle fracture. It was difficult having to travel from Wisconsin and then leave before he was fully healed. You put our minds at ease and we knew he was in good hands and, in time, he would…Read more.

I would like to say a HUGE “thank you” to Dr. Song. He performed torn rotary surgery on me 9 months ago and I was able to ride my horse again within 6 months. He did an amazing job! I saw the doctor regularly for 6 months after my surgery. At every appointment, the doctor…Read more.

Dr. Bezwada spent as much time as I needed in his office discussing my hip replacement. He had me walking the next day. Three days later I was driving with little pain. The procedure was so much easier than I thought. Other doctors I talked to earlier scared me into waiting 3 years with great…Read more.


Russell F

My first hip replacement surgery was done in Philadelphia in 2005. When it was time to have my other hip replaced, I chose Dr. Bezwada & Capital Health in Hopewell, NJ. Dr. Bezwada is one of the few doctors that performs this surgery through the front instead of the back. This means there are no…Read more.

Scheduling – surgery & follow up appointments were a breeze? Wait time – “none”. I have my life back! Within 2 weeks I threw away my walker/cane. Three months later I walk 90 minutes a day – at least! I did at-home exercises post surgery but did not need any formal physical therapy my prior…Read more.

When I go up and down stairs I say “thank you” to Dr. Stacey Miller-Smith. I was unable to do this without pain before I saw her. Every six months I have my left knee injected.

I am a 55 year-old fitness instructor – I rely on my physical abilities to make a living; Although I was in a lot of pain, I was extremely hesitant about undergoing hip replacement surgery given that I did not know to what extent a potentially lengthy recovery would undermine my work. Dr. Bezwada was…Read more.

Dr. Stacey Miller-Smith is the best doctor I have ever had. I have been her patient for the past 3 years. Two previous meniscus surgeries shaved away all the cartilage from my right knee. I was “bone-on-bone” and experiencing pain when I walked, climbed stairs, etc. She makes me feel very comfortable on each appointment,…Read more.
