Excellent care and experience w/ right total knee replacement
in ocean view, nj |
I was in pain for more than two years with an arthritic knee and finally, when the needles no longer worked, I decided to see a doctor for help and advice. I learned about Dr. Ong through a few friends who also had total knee replacement and they couldn't say enough wonderful things about him. I too, found him to be honest, open and caring. I had total knee replacement in November 2015 and since then have been hiking, walking and biking and PAIN FREE!

Dr. Ong was very careful in explaining my options and the process involved in bilateral knee replacement. I believe that the fact that my scars are barely visible is testament to the skill and care that Dr. Ong possesses and applies to his patients. Dr. Ong and his office made what could have been a painful and arduous process much easier. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to continue to participate in the activities I enjoy.

Dr. Ong did both of my knee replacements (right and left knee, 3 1/2 years apart). I had excellent results with both knees: I can now walk for miles, bike 11+ miles per day, travel without worrying about hiking and seeing sights, golf (don't play well, but that's not my knees' fault!), and really do just about anything I want (except run, which I never did anyway!). If you need a knee replacement, don't wait. Dr. Ong's skill and mastery have given back to me an active life. Thank you, Dr. Ong!

Dr. Ong was fabulous. He replaced my two knees and I would recommend him to all my family and friends! He was so kind and his fantastic personality puts everyone at ease. I had total confidence in him and didn't feel I needed or wanted a second opinion. My two surgeries were very successful!

Dr. Ong is an outstanding surgeon and has great people skills. I would recommend him to anyone for knee replacement surgery. As an active individual (college football official), I was concerned that I would not be able to do the things I'm use to doing. I have my quality of life back, I can sleep through the night without pain and I don't have to wear a heavy brace when doing athletic activities. I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Ong to my family, friends, and peers.

Knee replacement done last November. Excellent results! little to no residual pain, some stiffness to be expected, but none of the painful walking (in that leg) that i experienced before the surgery. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Dr. Ong. He's funny, but takes his job in the OR seriously. Everything he promised me about my new knee is true. Next knee this August. Can't wait! And that's the truth.

Extremely knowledgeable Very professional. My hips were off making one leg shorter than the other. I wore orthotics witth a lift for 30 years. I always wore a covered shoe. After the hip replacement my legs were the same length. For the first time in 30 years I will be wearing sandals this summer! No orthotics no lift! Yeah! ??
