For the past 20 years, the Nutley Orthopaedic Group has transformed the lives of thousands of patients suffering from serious orthopaedic conditions. Those formerly living with chronic pain have returned to an active lifestyle.
Each physician in the Nutley Orthopaedic Group is distinctively skilled in his area of expertise. Patients from as far as Europe and Asia have sought out Dr. Femino for hip and knee replacement surgery and local sports teams rely on the expertise of Dr. Ducey to get them back on the playing field after injuries or other conditions sideline them.
Elimination of pain and restoring an independent lifestyle is the number one goal of the practice. Many patients who come through our doors have lived with pain for a long period of time, so finding the best way to alleviate pain becomes the focus.
Surgery is considered after more conservative treatments have been exhausted. We believe that preparation for surgery is key to a speedy recovery. To that end, the Nutley Orthopaedic Group staff strives to make patients both comfortable and knowledgeable about their surgery, a distinct advantage in the recuperation process.
Patients are nurtured throughout their entire experience. The Nutley Orthopaedic Group team will review your upcoming surgery with you prior to hospital admission. You will also have the opportunity to speak with other patients who have had a similar surgery. Any questions or anxiety about insurance coverage and payments are also addressed prior to any surgical procedure.
