“I was pleased with my meetings with Dr. Gesell prior to and after my hip replacement surgery. He took time to explain all details regarding the surgery and recovery to me and answered all my questions. His assistant, Amanda, also made herself available to answer all my questions. All the staff were very pleasant and helpful. I have recommended Professional Orthopaedic Associates to my family and friends Thank you to all of you for making a scary experience for me into a healing experience. God Bless All of You........”
– Helen C.
“Dr. Gesell performed shoulder surgery on me in May of this year. 6 months later my shoulder is better than new. I have achieved greater flexibility and strength in my joint than I had prior to my injury. Can't thank Dr. Gesell and Professional Orthopedics enough!”
– Bill J.
“I had a very good experience with Dr. Gesell and his staff. My very first visit with Dr. Gesell was not what I wanted to hear. I knew I needed a knee replacement but asked for a cortisone injection. Dr. Gesell would not give me one for many reasons and I think he felt I would not be back but I knew he had my best interest. It has been four weeks with my knee replacement and going to physical therapy and doing well. Dr. Gabisan took care of my ankle and recommended Dr. Gesell. I am happy with both doctors.”
– Barbara F.
“Hip replacement went well.”
– Michael S.
“Dr. Gessell is an amazing Doctor. First class all the way. Right hip replaced on Friday,home on Sunday. The Doctor made daily visits on both Saturday and Sunday,that alone should tell you about his work ethic. Please if you are considering a replacement visit Dr Gesell.you will not be disappointed.”
– Joseph W.
“My appointment was very rewarding. Dr Gesell was very knowledgeable, professional and understanding. Great experience. Thank you”

“I required a knee replacement for a few years. It wasn't until I met Dr. Gesell that I finally felt I was ready. He took the time to explain to me everything I would need to know to properly prepare me. His ability to calm patients is a rare thing. Having a major surgery can be frightening. So, I was relieved to find a dr and staff that made the process easy. The whole staff from the front desk, Amanda, Dr. Gesell's assistant and Dr. Gesell are professional with understanding and compassion. My knee replacement has been a great success. I look forward to having an active lifestyle again. Thank you”
– Debroah F.

I feel very thankful, blessed to have chosen Dr. Gesell.”

“I had two Partial knee replacement. two months apart. Now two months after the last one I am up and about.without even a cane. I was fortunate to have such an experienced, capable and caring doctor. Many people might be candidates for partial knee replacement but cannot find a doctor who is experienced in the procedure other than going to N.Y.C.Here is Dr. Geseell right here in N.J.”
– Carol Y.
“Dr. Gasell replaced my right knee in 2015 and did a great job. As things developed, I needed spine and hip surgery. Dr. Gasell determined the back should be done first which it was. I'll return to Dr. Gaskell for the hip with all the confidence one can have. On another note Dr. Gabisan worked with Dr. Gaskell to address the "drop foot" on the left. Keeping them busy !”
– Tom S.
“Absolutely wonderful. I had a hip replacement in 2012, when I was barely able to "stagger around"! Within a few weeks I was "made over," and able to travel on a long trip to Korea. Since then I have felt wonderful, as good as new. I exercise an hour to an hour and a half every day, and I would never know I had a hip replacement, based on how I feel. The surgery made me feel at least twenty years younger. I couldn't recommend anyone more highly than Dr. Gesell. As a postscript, I would advise anyone having this surgery to do all the exercises prescribed in the aftermath very diligently. I spent a week in rehab, which was very helpful, and I did everything I was told to do. In addition to the wonderful results from the surgery, I think my insistence on regular exercise has been a very good plan. Thank you so much.”
– Helen B.
