At the Orthopedic Institute of New Jersey, we’re always both humbled and proud to be known as the premier center for musculoskeletal care. We’re glad that the high level of expertise we offer — in all facets of orthopedics for patients of all ages — is acknowledged. Now we’re even more grateful, because ten of our physicians have been recognized as New Jersey Monthly’s Top Doctors. The endorsement of Top Docs is especially meaningful because it is based on peer-to-peer recommendations. Physicians are asked which doctors they would choose to treat their own family members.
Dr. Robert DeFalco, Jr., a board-certified orthopedic surgeon who has received Top Doc status nine times, says, “I’m happy to say that I am once again at a loss for words at the honor that our peers have bestowed upon us. It’s a validation both of our knowledge and the efforts we take every day in our relationships with, and to improve the health and wellbeing of, our patients.”
The other OINJ practice physicians who received the honor, with their areas of specialization, are Paul Teja, DO, (a 10-time recipient) and Stephen Koss, MD, (7), orthopedic surgeons along with Dr. DeFalco who specialize in sports medicine and treatments of the shoulder, knee, and hip; Frank J. Corrigan, MD, (4), upper extremities and surgery of the hand; Kevin White, DO, (8), foot and ankle; Christopher Castro, DO, (9), and Michael S. Gutkin, MD, (9), interventional pain management; Jason J. Wu, DO, (3), rheumatology and internal medicine; Behnam Salari, DO, (2), spine surgery; and John M. Dundon, MD, (1), hip and knee reconstruction.
The practice, serving Morris, Sussex, and Warren counties through multiple offices and orthopedic urgent care centers, has areas of focus that include sports medicine, minimally invasive spine care, treatment of upper and lower extremities, rheumatology, and rehabilitation medicine, including regenerative treatments and non-operative therapy for sports injuries.
