Patient Video Reviews

"Dr. Bade performed an arthroscopic surgery on my knee after I suffered cartilage damage. It had been nearly 20 years since my last surgery, which took place during my 4 years as a D1, basketball player. The results were so good that I was able to go back, against Dr. Bade's recommendation mind you, to playing basketball weekly, running long distances and hiking. I have recommended Dr. Bade many times for his excellent work and results, professionalism, and great candor." -- Melanie C.
"Very pleased with the help I received from Dr. Johnson. I came to him in 2000, with a knee problem that had me at times on crutches. Dr. Johnson diagnosed my knee problem as osteoarthritis. The first medical group I saw diagnosed a different condition and wanted to do surgery. That is when I went to Dr. Johnson. He treated my knee with an injection and physical therapy. I have lived with my knee condition and am able to do almost most anything. I would highly recommend Dr. Johnson to anyone that asked me for a doctor." -- John B.
"I had a fusion of my left ankle on Oct. 21, 2013. I was in a non-weight bearing cast for 6 weeks, then a weight bearing cast for 6 weeks. After that, I was able to walk with the aid of a walker, a cane, and now I do not have to use anything. I have been in physical therapy for 8 weeks. I am doing well and very happy to be without that terrible pain. I am just amazed I can peddle a bike, walk down a hill without pain, and am getting ready to dance again. I am very thankful to Dr. Gabisan and all the office people, especially Nicole and Rose Ann." -- Barbara F.
"I have been a patient of Professional Orthopaedic Associates for many years. Dr. Johnson has cared for every member of my family at some point, and I would never consider another practice for orthopaedic needs. The staff is friendly and helpful. The Tinton Falls office has an imaging center and physical therapy services on site, making it a very convenient, full-service location." -- John G.
"On two different occasions, Professional Orthopaedic Associates came to my rescue. Dr. Foos repaired my knee. His diagnosis was correct and that I did not need a knee replacement. My knee is great now. I no longer have pain or swelling. Dr. Torpey did surgery on my fractured hip following a fall. He did emergency surgery at Monmouth Medical at 1:00 a.m., on a weekend. I was home 12 hours later. Both Dr. Foos and Dr. Torpey were professional and concerned about my well being. I had no scars from the procedures. People can't believe I have 3 pins in my hip with a tiny scar as proof of the operation. I never hesitate to recommending both doctors to anyone looking for orthopaedic care. Monmouth Medical provided therapy on-site prior to my release." -- Chris T.
"I want to thank Dr. Jason Cohen and the staff at Professional Orthopaedic Associates for the care and support that I received throughout my procedure. From the time of my first phone call for my initial visit, to the most recent post-surgery check-up, I never felt as a “number,” but as someone as important as a family member. Dr. Cohen was very compassionate to the pain I was feeling as well as making me feel more at ease with the surgical procedure that was inevitable. The pain from the collapsed disc was so unbearable, that whenever I would cough or laugh, the pain would bring me to tears. As instructed by Dr. Cohen, the physical therapy made the recovery from the removing of the disc and the fusion of the two vertebrae very fast. It has now been over 2 years after the surgery, and I’ve never felt better. My husband reminds me that the scar from the incision is virtually invisible. Once again, thank you to a wonderful doctor and staff!!" -- Dawn D.
"The care and compassion I received from all of those I dealt with at Professional Orthopaedic Associates was a treat. Dr. Gesell replaced a knee for me and relieved the carpal tunnel pain I dealt with after the knee replacement, double whammy. Shortly after those issues, I was in an auto accident and shattered my arm. Thanks to Dr. Johnson, that injury was fixed. These people are sincere, good at what they do, and a pleasure to be around. I have regained an active lifestyle and look forward to having the other knee replaced. (Not really.) The best care by local professionals. Why go anywhere else? Thank you to Drs. Gesell and Johnson, and all of the women that took care of me." -- Gene B.
"Dr. Johnson operated on both of my elbows in January and February of this year for cubital tunnel syndrome. It is truly amazing how well I have recovered. I missed almost no work, and have returned to full sports and recreational activities, including baseball and guitar." -- Greg F.
"During the past 7 years, I needed surgery on both of my shoulders. From the beginning, Dr. Gentile provided guidance and support for my injuries. Each time he performed surgery, the discomfort and pain I experienced was eliminated. Dr. Gentile explained each procedure in detail, and spent the time to show me the x-ray and MRI pictures. giving me details on why surgery was recommended. Today, I enjoy a life without shoulder pain or discomfort." -- Frank C.
"In 2010, during my junior year of football at Moravian College, I suffered a broken fibula and dislocated ankle in the second game of the season. I met with Dr. Johnson the following Monday, and by the end of that week, I was in and out of surgery. After a years worth of healing and rehabilitation, I made a come back for my senior season, without missing a snap the entire year. I'd like to thank Professional Orthopaedic Associates, and especially Dr. Johnson, for helping me get back on the field one more time, and making such a miserable situation go smoothly." -- Stephen K.
