“Dr. Gesell. I am fortunate to have a great doctor like you take care of me with my full knee replacement. I was back to work and driving in three weeks! Best of all, the horrible pain I had before the operation is gone.”
“Dr. Mark Gesell has helped me on several occasions. A fine, experienced physician and gentleman, he is also careful, patient and kind. He is cautious and does not advise unnecessary treatments. I have known him for years, because he was my student in high school. He comes from a fine family. Then, as now, I am pleased to recommend him without reservation and wish him all the best with his career.”
“I am very pleased to be writing you a second letter regarding another amazing experience at Monmouth Medical Center. Previously, in April 2016, Dr. Mark Gesell replaced my arthritic hip using robotic surgery and most recently replaced my arthritic knee similarly. Again, I had a stellar experience beginning with Pre-Admission testing (Beth, Suzanne, Doreen, Herb) leading me to the day of surgery. My first memories of post-op were spent with a caring and thoughtful Recovery Room Nurse, Joyce. She stayed with me beyond her shift and I was so grateful.
Finally, my journey to the 6th floor Orthopedic Wing – what a team with an apparent committed effort focusing on me, the patient. I so appreciated the care from Nicole Wilps’ 6th floor team – Ben and Angela, my evening and daytime Nurses and Robin, the Physical Therapist.
As I reflect, it appeared all was possible because of the constant articulation between the Medical Center team and Dr. Gesell’s Administrative Assistant, Amanda Aversa. She was the perfect patient advocate!
I always knew I had chosen a most highly regarded surgeon, Dr. Mark Gesell, and now I also know I was privileged to spend my first healing days with my new knee at Monmouth Medical Center.”
“I would like to thank you for your special expertise, great kindness and alacrity that you gave to my “two knees” and their replacements!!
My entire experience with this seeming debacle was one of trust and appreciative understanding of your prowess and empathy to my situation and I am very grateful.
Also, your entire staff, especially Amanda, who was so willing and thoughtful to help in any way, was wonderful.”
“Everything explained. Options understood.”
“This office is run the most efficient I have seen. The staff is nice, professional and courteous. I work in an office so I know how hard it is to manage and maintain this. Dr. Gesell is on the top of my list as far as doctors go. He is nice,professional and listens. He did my hip two years ago and I had no problems after surgery at all. He will be doing my knee when I decide to have it done.”
“I find Dr. Gesell to be very caring, professional, and listens to and answers all of my questions. He doesn't rush me out of the office. I am a very happy patient. Highly recommend him.”
“Dr. Gesell tells you like it is and what to do for it. He was right with me.”
“I had a knee replacement with Dr. Gesell. I felt very safe in his hands. He explained everything and was compassionate with me during my surgery and recovery. I will be having another knee replacement in October. I would highly recommend Dr. Gesell to anyone. During my hospital stay and with the visits from Home Health Care and physical therapy, they all remarked about how well I was doing and how the surgery went for me. My recovery seemed to be above the normal.”
“Dear Dr. Gesell, I have been very pleased to work with Dr. Sheela Iyer during my physical therapy sessions in May and June. She is very knowledgeable and an amazing advocate. Further, she tailored my sessions to optimize my progress. I realize all the above represent her job responsibilities yet I felt she went above and beyond each session. I am so grateful I chose Professional Orthopaedics Physical Therapy during my recovery.
Also, thank you very much for my successful hip replacement surgery as well as the at-home after-care associated with the VNA. My hip is pain-free and I am thrilled.”
“I think Dr. Gesell is very professional, knowledgeable, and a caring physician. He takes time to explain options available and does not make you feel like he is in a hurry to move on to his next patient. The staff is very pleasant and efficient. My overall experience has been very good, and I would definitely recommend this practice to anyone looking for an orthopaedic group.”
“Dr. Gesell has been remarkably sensible and knowledgeable and helpful with my shoulder arthritis.”
“Got right to the point (in 'my language'), while understanding 'my' big picture. Was a good learning experienced for me. Thank you, Professional Ortho', and especially Dr. Gesell (also the DJO specialist). Good job-Bill.”
“Just finished walking the Kapalua trail in Maui, HI for the third time this week thanks to Dr. Gesell and my new hips.”
“Dr. Gesell is an excellent and kind surgeon. He takes the time to sit and talk to his patients, and that's so important. The staff is very helpful also. I am very happy that I chose professional orthopedics for my knee replacement surgery.”
“Operation on a Friday, home on Sunday.
P/T in NJ and here in Miami.
Knee has never been better.
People say,"where's the scar", it's that good.
P/T is trying to get me to run a marathon, funny I never could do that before.”
“Everything Dr. Gessell spoke to me about the surgery happened as well as the recovery. I had an accident midway through recovery and checked everything again and he took care of everything thanks for taking care of me.”
“As always, Dr. Gesell was friendly and professional. He spoke to me about my options but didn't push anything. He gave me time to weigh my options and come back when I make my decision. I appreciate his honesty and his friendly manner.”
“I was in a lot of pain from necrosis of the hip. I had hip replacement surgery by Dr. Gesell. I can only say that my experience and recovery have been wonderful, and I feel "as good as new." I lead a very active life and get lots of exercise, which is so important. I am very grateful that the whole problem has been so beautifully taken care of. Thank you so much.”
“Had hip replacement, had zero pain from in the hospital to when I was pain-free 10 days later. Hospital staff was great and could not do enough for me. This is not what I expected but it sure felt good during the entire process. After years of pain and other doctors treating my back, I can now walk again, pain-free. I am back to the gym 5 days a week, 2 hours a day and can once again ride my motorcycle. By the way, I am 70 years old and feel great thanks to Dr. Gesell.”
“I found your office to be the most organized and well managed medical facility I have ever experienced.”
“Not a bad one in the bunch! I saw Dr. Gesell for knee pain. He gave me a needle which I didn't even feel a pinch. I call this my six-month lub job. Dr. Gabisan removed a bone spur above my big toe this fall. I felt like I was at a spa. I was given heated blankets and a TV in my room. The staff was excellent as was my doctor. I was back to walking my dogs in a couple of days. I didn't need pain meds but took a couple of advil. I would recommend this procedure in a heartbeat.”
“Dr. Gesell is a very personable and professional in his field. I would highly recommend him.”
“Dr. Gesell and his entire staff made my surgery experience go more smoothly that I could have possibly imagined. From the very first time I contacted Professional Orthopaedic Associates, I was treated with courtesy and respect in a friendly and professional manner. I underwent a total hip replacement on January 8, 2016, and was home on January 10, 2016. The hospital staff were wonderful to me and made the whole experience extremely positive. I feel so good, physically and emotionally, with my new hip. It's just incredible to be pain free and healing so quickly. Thanks to everyone at Professional Orthopaedic Associates for a wonderful experience!”
“Dr. Gesell did a knee replacement on me and the experience was surprising.
As with any surgery of this magnitude you expect a lot of pain. I had next to none
which was very unusual according to a number of friends who had the same procedure.
As a lot of people do, I put off the operation for fear of what I would have to go through.
If you have to go through it this is the way to go.
P.S. I think the great x-rays taken at the office helped too!”
