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 absolutely wonderful. His conduct was impeccably professional, and his care for his patients unquestionable. His polite and personable demeanor immediately put me at ease and made me comfortable to ask many questions about my condition and its treatment. He shared his knowledge unhurriedly taking into account my knowledge of the human body. He thoroughly explained the problem with my hip and the surgery to correct it and provided me with “take-home” information that allowed me to make an educated decision about undergoing surgery. He truly went of his way to make me feel comfortable and confident by phoning me the night before the surgery to go over residual issues and answer any questions. During my brief stay at the hospital and during my follow-up visits at his office he has consistently addressed all my questions about the healing process unhurriedly and with great care. I have healed surprisingly fast and my pain has completely disappeared. I am able to walk again without pain and anguish and have resumed all my intense physical activities at the gyms and outdoors. I cant’ speak highly enough about Dr. Bezwada. I have recommended him to my clients and friends and will continue doing so in the future. He is a great asset and I am grateful that he is there for me and all of his other patients.

During the space of one years’ time, Dr. Brian Vannozzi performed total knee replacement surgery on both of my knees. Princeton Orthopaedic Associates’ staff made each phase of the surgery, its preparation and recovery, as stress free as possible. Appointments were easily made and worked with my schedule; staff was courteous and cheerful, and Dr. Vannozzi was everything you would want in your surgeon. I have since recommended Princeton Orthopaedic Associates and Dr. Vannozzi to several coworkers without reservation.
I can’t begin to tell you what a difference this surgery has made in my life. The constant pain is gone; I am able to walk to the soccer fields to watch my grandsons’ games; and everyday chores have become so much easier.
During my recent six-month post-surgery checkup, Dr. Vannozzi came into the examining room and asked me how I was doing. My simple reply was: “I walked across the parking lot…NO MORE VALET PARKING FOR ME!”.
Thank you! Dr. Fleming, Thank you! My cruise was fabulous due to you helping me with my knee. I walked the “big ship” from end to end without pain. I know I will always have problems with my knee but will accept all the good that I have because of YOU.

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 constant back, knee, hip, and groin pain disappeared immediately. Dr. Bezwada’s beside manner is perfect. He is very calm and conveys that to his patients! I feel unstoppable!

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 movement restrictions, reduces rehabilitation time and pain. The pre-surgery consultation and orientation at Capitol Health was excellent. They informed me of the entire process from pre-admission testing to discharge. Dr. Bezwada phoned me the evening before the surgery to assure me that everything was going to go well. After surgery, I woke up in recovery and was soon taken to my private room. The nurses at Capital Health were professional and polite. Because of Dr. Bezwada, I am able to coach soccer again pain-free. I recommended Dr. Bezwada to my mother-in-law and at age 83 also came through the surgery pain-free.
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 pain till I met Dr. B. Everything he told me was right on. His office is great. He is caring and I had very little downtime. I may need my other hip replaced. This time, I am not waiting at all.
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 patiently answered all of my questions and never acted as if he had to hurry to the next patient. Dr. Song is the type of physician every patient deserves.
His assistant, Ashley, was always prompt at returning phone calls and addressing my concerns. I still do the exercises Ashley took the time to review with me.
And last, but not least, Dr. Song’s office staff operates like a well-oiled machine. They are knowledgeable, friendly, and know how to schedule appointments. My appointments were always on time, which is quite a feat!
Thanks again to an incredible surgeon and those who provide support to him.
Dr. Song is wonderful in every way. He is positive and professional. He managed my expectations every step of the way. I never waited long in the waiting room to see him. He is respectful to his patients and towards his staff. He was very encouraging and attentive even during my visits after the surgery. This is a practice where everyone is so kind and every detail is thought through! I’ll say again, the encouragement that I received were an integral part of the surgical experience. Dr. Song is not your typical rushed, cold surgeon but rather, very warm and caring–and, of course, very skillful. I never felt rushed and was able to get respectful answers to all my questions. I also noticed that in my PT setting, many shoulder or knee patients had been to Dr. Song and I heard only good things. Regarding my experience with Dr. Song and his wonderful staff, I wanted to add that the specially-fitted sling and the ice pack that I was given in my pre surgery appointment were also an important part of my recovery.

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 be back to normal. We thank you for your kindness and your medical skills.
Karen and Jim G.
