I would say from the minute I met Dr. Zaino, I knew I would get better. The scary part of not knowing what was ahead with a fracture was answered on my first visit. I knew I was in good "hands". Dr Zaino was always able to answer any questions and take his time with me. I can't say enough about good bed side manner!!! Thanks for all you do.

In addition to hand & wrist treatment, the Orthopedic Institute of New Jersey also understands how important it is to have healthy elbows. When you have an elbow injury or a chronic elbow condition, the simplest tasks—such as reaching for a plate, lifting laundry, swinging a golf club, typing on a computer, taking a shower or cooking—can become difficult or impossible.
Every orthopedic elbow specialist at OINJ has the training, experience and expertise necessary to restore your elbow and arm function. This includes repairing traumatic injuries and treating chronic conditions and repetitive motion injuries, such as tennis elbow. Our ultimate goal is to help you return to your daily activities without elbow orthopedic pain. At OINJ, we specialize in diagnosing, treating and providing preventive care for all acute and chronic conditions of the elbow and cases of elbow pain. These include elbow arthritis, nerve compression/entrapment (Cubital tunnel syndrome), tendonitis of the elbow (Tennis elbow and Golfer’s elbow), elbow fractures, biceps tendon rupture/tear and more.
