“Dr. Gesell helped me to feel confident about the surgeries that he would perform. He explained the surgical procedure and what I should expect after as far as mobility and pain levels as the healing time progressed. His demeanor made me feel sure that I had the correct doctor for each of my procedures. He first performed a total hip replacement which I had put off for much too long. I now have a well-performing hip that makes me feel like I have the bone of a 15-year-old. Dr. Gesell also fixed the tears in my right shoulder. He told me what to expect after the surgery and how long my recovery would take. Now I have a pain free shoulder. Dr. Gesell is also treating me for my right knee which has a tear and some arthritis. He has done two injections that have helped immensely, although I do know that somewhere down the line I will need a knee replacement, he has assured me that we can wait until that procedure is necessary for the quality of life which I do have at this point with the injections. Thank you, Dr. Gesell”

“Dr. Gesell was a personable and professional specialist. He administered injections to both knees that are still helping months later. He answered all questions thoroughly, and in a way, I could understand. I also attended his seminar at Monmouth Med and was very impressed with his presentation on knee surgery.”

“Dr. Gesell has treated me for a few years due to a damaged right knee. I appreciated that he would drain the fluid and inject cortisone when the pain and swelling got too bad. He never pressured me into surgery although I needed it but was not ready for the commitment. When I finally decided on a TKR, Dr. Gesell patiently guided me through the process. I had robotic surgery on April 27th and am happy with the results of my new knee and straight leg. I still have some swelling and stiffness but am much improved from the past pain and deformity. As a mother of a Physician, I expected certain professionalism from my team and was pleased with Dr. Gesell and his staff. The office is friendly and efficient, and patients aren't required to sit and wait for hours in the waiting room. I have referred many people to Dr. Gesell and hope that he continues to stay focused on positive outcomes for his patients.”

“I had x-rays and saw Dr. Gesell for mild hip pain about three months after he performed my hip replacement surgery. He diagnosed what he thought was causing the pain, and I followed his instructions to reduce pain, which worked after about a week, as he expected. Dr. Gesell has provided excellent care before and after my hip surgery, which I consider a complete success, and I would highly recommend him to anyone considering hip replacement.”

“Dr. Gesell is just great. He took the time to carefully explain why the surgery was needed and how it would be done. Expected outcomes were also discussed. The pre-surgery program and the pre-surgery testing done at Monmouth Hospital were first rates preparing the day of surgery very easy and less stressful. Through diligent pre-surgery exercises and post-surgery physical therapy, I have had a successful outcome. I would recommend and have approved, Professional Orthopaedic Associates and Dr. Gesell to anyone in need of their services.”

He is cautious, and it does not advise unnecessary treatments. I have known him for years because he was my student during my career as a high school teacher. He comes from a beautiful family.

“Dr. Gesell is amazing. So competent and professional. He did a total knee replacement for me, and it went flawlessly. And he was very patient and explained everything thoroughly in our follow up visits. His expertise transformed my life from being almost crippled to walking 4 miles a day again only six weeks after surgery.”

“Dr. Gesell replaced my right hip in August; surgery went as he described it, and I've had no complications thus far. I experienced minimal pain, it was more a feeling of discomfort as I learned how to move around during the first few days after the surgery. My mobility has improved significantly each day since surgery. I would recommend Dr Gesell to anyone who is considering joint replacement.”

“My experience with Dr. Gesell was good. My knee is healing well, and I liked the fact that I saw Dr. Gesell for post surgery follow up checks instead of a PA, etc. I was always treated with kindness, and Dr. Gesell is an excellent surgeon. Dr. Gesell's care was so much more beautiful and better.”
