Dr. Harwood and team replaced my hip and gave me my life back! After 4 weeks I attended the BottleRock Music Festival and now, about 12 weeks out, I am almost 100%
In 1996 Drs. Harwood and Butler did a hip fusion reversal and total hip replacement on my left hip. This gave me a new lease on life. For the first time since I originally broke/dislocated my hip in 1966, I was pain free. It is now 27 years later and I’m still going strong.
On May 20, 2022, I had a fluke bicycling accident, low speed with no other bicycle or car involved. I hit a small pile of sand on a sharp turn. The front tire washed out. I went down on my right side with all my weight landing on my right upper femur/hip area resulting in an upper trochanter femur/hip fracture. I had a rod inserted from my hip to my knee, 2 screws in my hip, and 2 screws in my knee. After PT and a slow, steady return to cycling, I’m now back to full strength, full speed. I can’t imagine life w/o cycling. Thank you so much Dr. Baione!
On 4/23 I had my right knee replaced by Dr. Baione who I was referred to by Tara, who works at the Morganville office. Thanks to Tara, Dr. Baione and his staff everything went as planned. Then came my PT follow-ups. I met Tara and Donna who helped me coordinate my treatments with my personal schedule. They couldn’t have been more respectful and courteous during this experience. They should be considered a huge asset to UOA. Then it became time to start my actual PT. I had the pleasure of working with Joe Abadir and Mateo. They put me through a rigorous treatment plan which they formulated for me and addressed any and all of my needs and concerns. They were so respectful and professional that I almost forgot about the pain. They treated me more like a friend rather than a patient. When I first started my treatment I had difficulty walking and was in a lot of pain. I learned a new term called “range of motion” and this improved after each visit with them. I went from a walker to a cane to having the ability to climb stairs with no pain. All of this occurred in a much shorter time than I ever expected due to the way these two guys took care of me. If I ever owned a business it would be highly successful if I had employees like Tara, Donna, Joe, and Mateo. From Tara introducing me to Dr. Baione and his staff to going back to Morgaville again with Tara, Donna, Joe & Mateo, I had an extremely successful experience and I would highly recommend UOA to anyone that I know who has an orthopaedic issue. Great crew!
I have been going to see Dr. Kayiaros for over 4 years. He did a total right hip replacement in April 2019 and a total left hip replacement in March 2023. There is not enough praise and thanks I can give him for how great the 2 surgeries went. I had hardly any pain coming home from either surgery. Dr. Kayiaros was professional, knowledgeable, and I trusted him and his staff completely. There was hardly any pain weeks after the surgeries. I was up and back to my normal routine in about 4 days post-op. I no longer needed a cane or a walker within 5 days post-op. I highly recommend Dr. Kayiaros and his staff. Also the first surgery was at RWJ Somerset, each person there was so caring and the hospital was good. The second was done at UOA facility upstairs in UOA main office. There too the staff was very good and everything went smoothly. Very happy with my results.
Dr. Baione and the entire team took excellent care of me, from the consultation phase all the way through physical therapy. Having both hips replaced at one time was a little intimidating but, I’m so glad I made that choice! At only 8 weeks post-surgery, I’m moving freely and getting stronger every day! 5 stars all day long….thanks everyone!
After 3 left knee surgeries from another orthopedic doctor and left severely disabled with no more patella tendon, Dr. Kayiaros repaired the knee with the 4th surgery. I truly believe his hands were blessed by God. I’m walking now! He also replaced my right hip a few years ago. It is perfect! Thank you Dr. Kayiaros.
After much research, I chose Dr. Stephen Kayiaros as my surgeon for a total hip replacement. I feel better leaving the hospital than I felt walking in. Post surgery pain was extremely well managed. The debilitating pain I suffered from arthritis is completely gone. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Kayiaros. His list of credentials is extensive. His personality is very calm and comforting. Before I had surgery, I had to rely on a walker and now, I am regaining, my life and my freedom. I never thought that I could say that a hospital stay and Surgery was wonderful, but this was. My thanks and appreciation to Dr. Kaiyaros. his staff, the hospital, the nurses and everyone that was involved in my care.
