“I had a right hip replacement.  All I can say is THANK YOU. The whole process from the first appointment with Dr. Lombardi through the scheduling of the surgery, the surgery and the aftercare was great. Everyone I dealt with was understanding, caring and very good at their jobs. I would and do recommend Dr. Lombardi and Tri-County Orthopedics to anyone looking for this type of surgery. So, again THANK YOU for giving me back my ACTIVE life.”

“I had a bad tear in my meniscus and in a lot of pain. Doctor Lombardi came highly recommended. I walked out of the Hospital immediately following my surgery and within three weeks I was back to work with no rehab. Also I hate to admit it but I am a senior person. I would recommend Dr. Lombardi to anyone (and I have). Thank you Dr. Lombardi!”

“Arrived at 9 am. The appointment was 9:15. Filled our paperwork and was taken back to examination and had x-rays done by 10. I saw the doctor shortly after 10. Looking at potential knee replacements. Had two cortisone shots and couldn't be happier. Hopefully, they work for a while because my knees haven't felt this good in years. Excellent experience.”

“As a nurse needing a hip replacement who has spent most of her career in the field of rehabilitation, I knew my work experience would help me in this necessary process. Of course nurses think at times they know more then they actually do. It takes a team effort for the desired income. I was humbled the first week after surgery. Dr. Lombardi and his team had instructed me of making it easy during the first six weeks and doing only the exercises they gave with activity guidelines. Two days after surgery I asked my 16 year old daughter to walk along with me and my rolling walker down the street. My daughter said, "Is this a good idea Mom. Remember you have to walk back." I was anxious to start PT but couldn't because Dr Lombardi said in his experience that this course of treatment was better. He and his team stated this to me and they were right. I payed for my unwise actions and learned a valuable lesson. I am now three months post op; still having my PT at the outpatient center where I work and going back to my FT job so much better than I have in years. My overall quality of life has improved and some valuable lessons learned from the experience. Thank you.”

“Dr. Lombardi was excellent- Same day hip replacement- After my surgery, I was home by 5 PM that day. After eight week recuperation, I was back to work-(no physical therapy needed). Tri-County Orthopedics was professional and responsive, I have recommended them to others.”

“Dr. Lombardi and his staff made me very comfortable and explained what I should expect. I was up and about much quicker than I expected and the home was feeling great after my second knee replacement on my right knee. I live alone and my apartment is on one level and I was allowed to go directly home from the hospital in a few days. Everyone was amazed at the fact I was walking so well in such a short time.”

“After suffering from severe pain in both knees, I tried Physical therapy, OTC medications, and finally gel shots. They lasted about four weeks. However, I was afraid to have a total knee replacement done. Finally, I researched all orthopedic surgeons in northern NJ. Tri-County Orthopedics and Dr. Paul Lombardi had the best records and reviews. What sealed the deal was speaking with a grade school friend a retired nurse, who was having a hip replacement done. I called to see who she recommended, and she said, Dr. Paul Lombardi. From beginning to end the whole experience was so well explained and professionally designed that my fears went away. I am just sorry I didn't have my knees done sooner.”

“I had a knee replacement in December with Dr. Lombardi. I was totally satisfied with the whole experience. I couldn't believe I was up and walking the same day. When I left the hospital the pain was minimal and I was walking around thanks to Dr. Lombardi. I highly recommend Dr. Lombardi and have recommended him to others. In the future I may need my other knee replaced and I will not hesitate to have Dr. Lombardi do the surgery.”

“I am a 67-year-old man who played all sorts of sports throughout my life. The pressure I placed on my hips was overbearing. The pain in both hips started years ago, but I delayed surgery and now it's necessary. Initially, I went to HSS in NY and was not comfortable with what I heard from their doctors. They were adamant in doing the posterior approach, which I believed was an older technology. I met with Dr. Lombardi in August and he saw that both hips were beyond treatment with medicine, but that surgery was required. Dr. Lombardi was professional and courteous with a comforting bedside manner which made me feel comfortable and at ease. He recommended the newer approach using the anterior method. My left hip was done in October. I was in the hospital for 1 day and Dr. Lombardi and his PA, Oliver was there to answer questions and explain what I needed to do to start the healing process. My right hip was done on January 9th at 10 AM and I was home by 9 PM, the same day. I was driving within a week and started swinging golf clubs by mid March. It’s been 6 months since my first surgery and 3 months since my last surgery and I am playing golf and feel great. All these thanks to the care and skills of Dr. Lombardi, Oliver, and the Tri-County staff. Thank you!”

“I had a double knee replacement and could not be more pleased with my complete experience. Dr. Lombardi told me what to expect, including driving after two-plus weeks and returning to work after three, which is exactly what happened. My pain level was less than pre-op after 10 days. Total discharged in a little less than 12 weeks. Can’t thank Dr. Lombardi, Oliver and their team enough!!”

“I had hip replacement surgery at the Denville surgical center. Currently I have resumed all normal activities including gym and enjoying life again. It's been a little over 4 1/2 months since surgery. Over all, Dr Lombardi, Oliver and the entire staff were very good in all phases of the game and constantly recommend Tri County to all. I especially would like to mention Christina from the surgical center. She followed up with me by phone for several weeks and was extremely polite, patient and helpful for me.”

“This was my second total knee replacement and my recovery was even faster than the first one. I came home from the hospital the day after surgery without any problems. I did not have to take any pain medication while in the hospital or at home. I am very pleased with the results.”

“I am pleased by the professionalism of the entire staff. They seem dedicated to solving the problem of "what ails thee". This quote comes from the story of the knight seeking the Holy Grail. He finds the possessor of the grail with a sword in his leg but fails to ask him "what ails thee" and loses his chance. I particularly like Dr. Lombardi's approach to the problem presented by asking that question. I have had three orthopedists over ten years dealing with my knee problem and he has been patient and inclusive. I have agreed to surgery which I will have in January. That alone is an accomplishment for better health and trust.”

“Better than I could have ever anticipated! Morristown Hospital is so very experienced and well equipped for total knee replacement surgery. I could not believe that I was standing on my new knee the day of surgery. Dr Lombardi is some kind of miracle worker. Within a month, I was back to work, with no pain at all and just a skinny little scar. I'd expected something more Frankenstein-esque. My mobility is greatly increased, thanks to my new right knee. Now all I want for Christmas is a new LEFT knee! Thanks to all.”
