I started my appt. by asking Dr. Fu if I was his mother, would he recommend surgery. I received a lecture telling me that he wasn't going to make my decision for me. Don't we go to drs for advice & counsel? If you desire a dr who returns your calls & cares about your pain, keep looking. I tried to reach Dr. Fu twice in two mos about my pain. His office denied receiving recorded messages, didn't know who took an actual call from me & admitted to not reading patient emails. Then, they prescribed the wrong medication. At 5 mos post rotator cuff surgery, I stopped PT as the pain got severe. Now Dr. Fu wants to inject cortisone to mask the pain that I think I shouldn't still have. A radiologist at HSS reviewed my 4 month post surgery MRI and said the cuff was still torn. Dr. Fu says it is just swelling. Who do I believe? I believe that I shouldn't still hurt. HSS has many fine doctors, find a different one willing to give an opinion & to fix communication problems within his own office.

I was was having issues with my shoulder and friend highly rcommended Dr. Michael Fu. He was in the city which I was trying to avoid because of the distance, however, my friend said he was one of the best shoulder surgeons. As soon as I met him, I knew he was going to be the right surgeon. What stood out about him was his ability to explain what my injury was, how to repair it and why. He was also upfront in telling me that it is common to find more damage once they get in, but they will repair those issues as well. His office manager, Brandon Bascomb, is a super star. All of my pre-surgical testing was arranged by him. When he was setting up the appointments, he noticed I lived on Long Island and that they have a satelitte office close to me. The surgey was a success and I did indeed have more repairs than the images showed. I would highly recommend Dr. Michael Fu and his team. He is an excellent surgeon.

I’m an avid runner with major back issues. Some local doctors wanted to do surgery without even attempting less invasive avenues. Thank god a good friend recommended Dr Vad at HSS. His leading edge procedures helped me get back to running PRs in my 50s!

I had a great experience with Dr. Fu and his team. Dr. Fu is very skilled and knowledgeable. He gave me an honest assessment of my condition and took the time to discuss the pros and cons of both surgical and non-surgical options. His office manager is very pleasant and efficient. He took care of all related appointments to make sure that there was minimal out-of-pocket expenses.

Dr Vijay Vad is an incredibly knowledgeable companionate and skilled doctor who was able to assess and treat my problem perfectly. I trust him implicitly. His book, Back RX, is useful, well written, highly informative and helpful.

Dr. Fu performed my right reverse shoulder replacement 6 weeks ago. My experience has been totally positive!!! I’m healing well and feeling great. I would highly recommend Dr. Fu!!! He’s patient, compassionate and the best at what he does. He listens, answers all questions and concerns—and, explains the process and what to expect fully.

Dr. Fu is a gifted, compassionate, and caring surgeon. After two years of shoulder pain and a failed arthroscopy, Dr. Fu performed a reverse shoulder replacement. He clearly explained the procedure and why I needed it. He answered all my questions. I am no longer in pain and am extremely happy with the results. I highly recommend Dr. Fu and HSS.

I was very pleased with Dr Fu’s approach to the possibility of shoulder replacement surgery. He was clear and concise in explaining and answered all of my questions. His practice is efficiently run with the help of Brandon. The Paramus location is ideal for initial and follow up visits as well as diagnostics.

Dr. Fu is an extremely professional and compassionate doctor. Upon arrival in his office and meeting with him I realized his concern for my pain. After a fall down a spiral staircase the pain that I was experiencing was very severe. Dr. Fu explained to me in detail his plan for future surgery that was needed for my injury and diagnostic testing and the present concern for COVID-19. He made me feel that I had made the right decision for him being my surgeon for this serious operation of a reverse shoulder replacement. I have had a very successful operation due to his expertise and his surgical abilities . I had previously seen another specialist at another hospital I know now that I had chosen the best hospital at HSS and the best Orthopedic Surgeon doctor for my surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Michael Fu to my family and friends.

I had advanced glenohumeral joint osteoarthritis of my right shoulder. After years of anti-inflammatory medication, cortisone injections, and sleepless nights, I felt it was time to explore shoulder surgery. Finding Dr. Michael Fu of HSS was a blessing. He explained why the stemless shoulder replacement would be my best option, detailed the recovery expectations, and answered my excessively long list of questions. The surgery went better than I anticipated. Seven months later, I’m playing golf, fishing, cycling and exercising. I haven’t felt this good in years!

I can only say positive things about Dr Fu. Dr Fu has wonderful patient rapport. He is a highly skilled surgeon. He answered all of my questions clearly. Post op pain was minimal. My recovery of movement and strength continues to be more than I ever expected. I will be visiting him again in a year or 2 for my other shoulder.

I went to Dr. Fu after being told by a Jersey doctor that my shoulder was irreparable. I was pleasantly surprised when Dr. Fu completely disagreed and immediately sent me for MRI and scheduled my surgery that same week. Dr. Fu and his staff, were always very helpful, kind and professional. I had the surgery and was back to work two weeks later, instead of the standard 8 weeks. Dr. Fu was cautious in his treatment, explained everything carefully and was just a genuine pleasure all around. I would highly recommend this Dr. to anyone in NJ considering rotator cuff surgery. Both he and The Hospital for Special Surgery are just incredible!

Dr. Fu operated on me at the end of December and performed a Total Reverse Shoulder Replacement. Prior to the surgery, he and Brandon, his office manager explained all aspects of pre and post surgical procedures. The surgery was very successful and I have no pain.

I believe that Dr. Miller saved my life - literally and figuratively - after I developed a serious post-op infection. In addition to the treatment with which he provided me, he advocated on my behalf many times during my experience at HSS-not always easy to do when it requires pushing against other doctors and what can be a closed system. He listens carefully, and provides care with compassion and much needed humor. His staff is wonderful as well, with a special shout-out to Danilo. My thanks.

I had suffered an accident and had resultant bone spurs causing crippling pain in both my ankles. After one surgery the pain came back and it felt like I would need crutches forever. When I came to Dr. Vad he gave me a completely different course of treatment, and through his injections and diet advice I can finally walk without crutches again. It has been such a long road, but when I saw Dr. Vad everything improved dramatically and quickly. He's a doctor that listens, counsels, and has great empathy for what his patients are going through. I recommend him to everyone.

Dr Vad has a very good reputation and I was pleased with his care 15 years ago when I had neck pain. Three months ago I went to him for severe back pain. The appointment was 10 minutes max. He examined me and said it could be my back or my hip. He offered any NSAID medication and vitamins. I had to pay out of pocket because he doesn't accept Medicare. I ended up calling another doctor for help. I was in so much pain I needed painkillers for two weeks. Another doctor ordered an MRI and I have a herniated lumbar disc. I may need surgery. Dr. Vad missed the severity of my problem because he was too busy.

Dr Blanco accurately diagnosed my son with Legg Calve Perthes disease and treated him with a different protocol than other pediatric orthopedists. Crutches and physical therapy versus lay in bed for two years and physical therapy. This review is in retrospect by 22 years. Dr Blanco was at UVA Charlottesvill back then. He and his team were awesome, and when he promoted out of UVA to Mayo, he made sure we had another great doctor (Dr Mark Romness) and consistent support from the remaining team. My son is now 28 years old and able to fully function with just one adjustment to his life: a 5/8-inch lift in his right shoe. Zero surgeries were necessary. The ball at the top of his femur healed as rounded as possible; range of motion is better than expected. My family is so very grateful for having found Dr Blanco. Super smart. Kind and empathetic; compassionate. Very matter of fact. Great experience.
