– Bob M.
“My daughter Kate had to undergo surgery on her knee for a rare condition known as Osteochondritis Dissecans. Dr. Foos not only successfully diagnosed her condition but also performed surgery on her. While there are no guarantees for any surgical procedures, Dr. Foos has been extremely forthcoming with recovery and managing expectations of a very active 14 year old athlete. Dr. Foos is extremely thorough, easy to talk to and makes each patient feel important. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr. Foos as a surgeon and physician.”
– Kate G.

"Awesome. I have had several knee and shoulder surgeries with Dr. Foos and he was great. I play college football and owe my whole carreer to him. My experience started with the front check in desk and ended with physical therapy. They were are the best each and every time. Professional Orthopaedics is the only orthopaedic practice I would ever use. Thank you to all their staff." – Chris D.
"Dear Dr. Foos, When I first met you regarding my shoulder, I thought it would be a one time fix and I would then be on my way. Little did I know I would be around for a few operations and months of figuring out what was ailing me. Your guidance and advice that I received I couldn't have gotten anywhere else. Your patience, caring and understanding of what hurts, what's changed and what can be done to fix things is more than just comforting, it's appreciated and helpful more than you can know. I have been a patient for years now and I would follow you and the doctors in the Practice anywhere you went. Support, care, and understanding are just a few of the adjectives I can list to explain just what you experience when you walk into one of these offices. I wanted you to know you and your staff are like none I've ever experienced anywhere else and I never hesitate to recommend Professional Orthopaedic Associates to anyone needing the best there is. Thank you again and again Dr. Foos for your help, care, and understanding in getting me back to myself again! Keep the well oiled machine running! It compares to no other orthopaedic office anywhere! Thanks for everything!" -Rose T.
"The most amazing, professional, brilliant Dr., who remains so compassionate for the most minor of surgeries. The office is run beautifully and the entire staff are fabulous." - Ann L.
"I'd like to comment the ENTIRE office staff, assistant, and Dr. Foos, for their compassion and professionalism. Dr. Foos performed rotator cuff surgery on my shoulder in May. I called with pain in my shoulder. Within ONE day, I had approval from insurance, MRI script faxed to radiologist, and an appointment the NEXT day! Everyone is friendly, efficient, and knowledgeable ! I have been to THREE doctors in this practice, who came highly recommended by OTHER doctors, outside this practice. Great office!" - Carol I.
"I had been experiencing pain in my left knee for quite some time which was hampering me from enjoying my daily and athletic activities. Dr. Foos diagnosed my problem & began with the least invasive treatment. When this did not relieve my knee pain, he ordered an MRI which showed that I was a candidate for knee replacement surgery. I appreciate that Dr. Foos was very conservative in his diagnosis and gave me plenty of time to consider all of my options. I chose knee replacement surgery as I am a 72-year-old woman who is looking forward to maintaining a very active and athletic lifestyle. It has been two weeks since my surgery. I am attending physical therapy 3 times a week and feel that I am making good progress. I am looking forward to a full recovery. Thank you, Dr. Foos!!" – Judith A.

"I have been a patient since1997 when I was injured at school. I needed three surgeries, including a spinal fusion, so I have sent several doctors in the practice.

I recommend this group to everyone and sing their praises to all who listen." – Linda S.

The staff is wonderful and I can't praise Dr. Foos enough. He is fabulous!

Their professionalism and caring are beyond any other medical experience I've had." – Linda S.

I've been able to work with my daughter in softball, play golf (attempt to) and live life with no pain in either shoulder or 1 of my knees. I will in time need a knee replacement and the only surgeon I'll consider is Dr. Foos. The office staff in all of the offices are always very friendly and always professional. I would highly recommend Professional Orthopedics to anyone. And I have referred 4 of my friends to them." – Ed T.
"Absolutely the highest level of expertise as well as the perfect bedside manner. The experience is always held at a high but personal level and generates the utmost confidence in your treatment, thank you" – Mark S.
"Dr. Foos and his staff treated me with the personal care you sometimes do not get in the medical field any longer. Dr. Foos took the time to sit and speak to me not only about my injury but also about my medical history. He developed a plan for me and gave me all of my options for care and treatment and the choice was mine. It was not just a "lets go in and cut". I would recommend Dr. Foos as an example to all in the medical field. I feel like I have a friend when we speak and there is no fear or hesitation when going to a visit. A+A+A+ " – Richard W.
"I have been with Professional Orthopedics and Dr. Foos for 16 years and find that he has been great in treating me for my knees, shoulder, and hip.

I also have seen Dr. Swick, which I first had seen and helped me along the way. I have found the doctors and staff to be exceptional and I have recommended them to all my friends." -- Kathleen M.
"Dr. Foos is one of the best in the world! Within 5 minutes of meeting him I knew I would be in great hands for a rotator cuff repair.

"I was told ... that I needed a knee replacement. Since my pain started after an injury and I didn't have chronic pain before, I went for a second opinion to Dr Foos. He disagreed. I had confidence in him because he explained everything to me in plain English. The staff were very reassuring, pleasant and kind: something missing at most Dr offices today. I had the arthroscopic surgery and feel great. In the past I also had a successful diagnosis from Dr Swik on my shoulder. The center where the surgery was performed is better than some hospitals." -- Audrey K.
"Dr. Foos is the best, he has in-depth knowledge about my torn PCL, but more importantly he can explain it to a person without the same level of knowledge!" -- Rich C.
"Dr Foos' care, prior to, during, and after my knee replacement surgery, was exceptional. I was a success story thanks to him. Now pain-free after years of discomfort evolving into chronic pain and instability of the point, I'm now able to resume all activities pain-free! Many thanks for the terrific care." --David N.
"Amazing—Dr. Foos took care of my right knee for a long time. After years of non-evasive treatments, I decided to have a knee replacement. He always said "you will know when it is time for surgery." I had my knee replacment in Mar, 2014 and it was the best decision I ever made. Thanks to Dr. Foos, I am able to go back to Zumba and walk with no pain or discomfort. I also want to mention the staff at Professional Orthopedics was great. If my other knee ever needs replacement, Dr. Foos is the person to do it." -- Rosemary F.
"Excellent, wouldn't go to any other firm. Thanks for everything." -- Michael R.
"I love Dr. Foos. He has performed 3 knee surgeries on me, and I was extremely satisfied every time. He's treated my sister and me and we both love him. He takes time to explain everything to you in detail and it's very reassuring. I won't go to any other doctor and I recommend him to anyone that asks for an orthopedic surgeon. Thanks so much Dr. Foos!" -- Marguerite C.
"He is fantastic! I would not be where I am today if it was not for him!" – Jennifer G.
"I cannot say how satisfied I am with the service I have always received from Professional Orthopaedic Associates. I have seen other Professional Orthopaedic physicians for various other issues and have always been very satisfied with the care I have received. I cannot say enough about Dr. Foos. He has treated me in the past, performing arthroscopic surgeries, and continues to provide me with excellent and compassionate care. I am very satisfied and cannot say enough about his care. The staff is also very accommodating and cooperative." – Lydia P.
"I was having sharp pain in my left shoulder. I had a MRI and x-ray done to indicate tendon/muscle damage. Dr. Foos assures that surgery was unnecessary. He answered every question I had BEFORE I ASKED IT!!! Excelled experience." -- Clem S.
Dear Dr. Foos and Staff, I just wanted to thank you all for being so wonderful to me before, during and after my recent surgery to repair the cartilage in my knee. I was so anxious and you all made it an almost pleasant experience! You must be an awesome boss to have so many truly happy employees. ~ Tracy M. West Allenhurst
Dear Dr. Foos, Here I am with two knees, and I want to thank you for giving me back my life. When I first came to see you, I was in so much pain. Today I feel like a new person and I am finally pain-free. Through it all, you always explained things so that I knew what would happen as well as how and why. You patiently and thoughtfully answered all my questions, even those some might consider silly (zumba and zip lines). You have an incredible staff. They have always been so nice to me. Your assistant, Jennifer, is amazing. She has traveled this journey with me, answering every phone call, every question, every fear I had, always so professional and compassionate. Then there's Laurie, the first person I would see at the reception desk; Colleen, Anthony, and John, who would bring me back to one of the exam rooms or take me for x-rays; Clarinda, who I would see on my way out and make my next appointment; Justine, who gave me those reminder calls. And then, physical therapy -- Tracy is the first person I spoke with at POA PT, and she was so kind and caring; Sheela is an incredible physical therapist and did wonders. And then there is you, Dr. Foos. Thanks to your great surgical skills and knowledge and compassion, you have brought me through this journey. I never thought I would be able to walk and run without pain again, but here I am. THANK YOU! ~ Sincerely, Doris F.
"Dear Dr. Foos, You performed a miracle with my knee I feel great! Thank you for a successful surgery and for always being willing to answer questions and explain things." ~ Doris F. PS: Thank you also to your wonderful team, especially Jennifer, who always returns my calls and is patient with me, and to the rest of your professional and wonderful staff. Thank you!
"As an avid racquetball player, I have had many injuries over the years. I just can't say enough about Dr. Foos. Dr. Foos has successfully operated on me four times for bones spurs in my elbow and shoulder and also a knee arthroscopy. The staff was phenomenal and the surgery-center was just fantastic. They combined to make each experience very easy. I look forward to many more years on the racquetball court!" ~ M. DelCollo in Colts Neck NJ
"I used to be active athlete who enjoyed all sports! Basketball, tennis, skiing, snow boarding, & martial arts. I had a full torn acl injury ten years ago and had seen quite few doctors over the years in New York and New Jersey. I never felt comfortable so never committed to the surgery. Most practices felt cold and uncaring (akin to a production line). At the recommendation of a friend I went to see Dr. Foos and from the minute I entered the office my experience was second to none. Dr. Foos provided unrushed quality time educating me on my injury and objective choice of options (the previous surgeons didn't really give any). As I expected the surgery went off without a hitch and his follow up was just as good as the first visit. The same quality time was made post-op which was instrumental in my full recovery. Just want to say thanks to Dr. Foos and the Professional Ortho staff for their commitment to quality care and personal service!!" ~ Chris C.
"I am so very grateful for my two new knees!! Dr. Foos has given me back my life! It had been years since I was able to exercise the way I wanted to. Now I can walk, bike, do Zumba, and enjoy moving to the music the way I used to. Swimming is still great, but I no longer have to rely on the pool for my only form of exercise. My volunteer work at the Bronx Zoo is no longer painful. There's such a lot of ground to cover, but now I'm happy to be there. This doesn't even cover playing with my grandchildren! It's amazing how much we take for granted, and how we can get used to losing it. It's easy to forget what you loved to do, but it's wonderful to rediscover them again. The care I received was wonderful. Physical therapy took several months, but following "orders" and hard work were definitely worth it. I am thankful every day." -- Susan G.
"Dr. Foos has been an absolute caring physician since my knee surgery. He takes his time with explaining the procedure, post-op, and office visits. I am very pleased with his services, and have referred several of my friends to him. They were completely satisfied as I was." -- Lorraine W.
"I suffered with knee pain for quite a long time before being referred to Dr. Foos. He spoke to me, had me have x-rays and a MRI. He found that I had a torn meniscus in my left knee. I had never had surgery before and was nervous to fix my knee. Dr. Foos performed an arthroscopic procedure. Since he helped me, I have not had any pain in my knee at all. He advised me that my right knee also needed the same treatment. The x-rays had shown a slight slanting of both my kneecaps. Two years after my first procedure, he did the same procedure to my right knee. I am grateful for Dr. Foos and all the staff in that office. They were nothing but kind, happy, and reassuring. It was such a great experience that I recommend this practice constantly. I only wish other doctor visits for other reasons were as pleasant. After rehab (with Sheila) within the same practice, I have full range of motion in both my knees. I am one happy and content patient. I work two jobs and I am a single mom, and I thank God for you all for making me better so I can work. Thank you." -- Maria P.
"Wonderful , never waited more then 10 minutes in lobby. Dr. Foos knew within 2 minutes what the problem was and booked a MRI that day. I had a MRI 3 days later, and a confirmed meniscus tear. We set up surgery, which he did on a day he doesn't do surgery to accommodative me. Would and have recommended Professional Orthopaedic Associates to others." -- Sean R.
"From the first visit to the last, Dr. Foos and his staff was first class all the way. A month after my knee surgery, I was able to ski like I was 17 again. I had my other knee worked on by another practice, and the experience was far superior with Dr. Foos. Thanks doc!" -- Dan B.
"I was at my most frustrated point, no one was able to come to a conclusion as to what was "wrong with me," I’ve had over 22 vascular operations, my joints were killing me, and had small tumors in my nerves, along with many other symptoms. Finally my knees were so bad, I could barely make it through a grocery trip, without them buckling and landing on the floor. I was barely in my 30’s. I had 33 mall children, had been searching for answers for over 10 years, most doctors thought I had Lupus, but all tests were always negative. I use to dance, do jazz and ballet, loved the beach, and bike riding all were things of my past. If I dared to take three steps in sand, my knees would literally fold underneath me. I was scared; I had hemorrhaged, come close to dying and had no hope. So yes, this office is an orthopaedic office, but they do more than that, they "listen" and truly care. Dr. Foos came recommended by 3 different doctors. He tried conservative measures first to strengthen my knees, however, after MRIs and physical therapy, surgery was the next step. I will never forget his words: “Your knee looks like you have played professional football for over 40 years. I did much more extensive work than I planned, which went well and will give you some time. However, you must get it replaced, very soon. I cannot believe, I am telling someone your age this.” In my mid late 30’s, I had both knees replaced, and my left elbow (partially replaced) and he found me a doctor who KNEW WHAT WAS WRONG WITH ME!!! I began treatments, with immune suppressants and both doctors communicate on my case regularly. I walk on the beach, without pain AT ALL. I am now 52, have hardly had much better quality of life, and attended almost all of my son’s soccer games, daughters cheerleading events, and my older son's concerts. This is ALL due to Dr Foo's and Professional Orthopaedic Associates. They care, they listen, and they are amazing at what they do." -- Gina H.
"Dr. Foos did surgery on both of my knees, one in 1998 and the other in 1999. For the following 15 years, I have remained one of the top Masters 5k road racers in the state." -- Mark M.
"I had knee pain for many years, but chose to ignore it due to the fact I was very overweight. I assumed any doctor would just look at me and say, "lose weight and you will feel better." Well, I lost over 120 lbs. and still had pain. So I finally sought treatment. I knew a few people Dr. Foos helped and he was highly recommended. After meeting with him, it was decided I needed surgery to repair a torn meniscus and a hole in my cartilage. I was pain free for the first time for as long as I can remember. Fast-forward 2 years, I re-tore the same knee and went back to see Dr. Foos. This time we elected to try a shot of synvisc. It was successful, and I was able to return to my very active lifestyle. I highly recommend Dr. Foos!" -- Daimee M.
