My experience with Dr Abdeen has been wonderful. I had a knee replacement and went home the same day. My recovery was very fast and since we where in pandemic I did my own PT at home. The Dr was supportive and answered any question that I had. I would highly recommend her for surgery. My wife used her on both her hips and she liked Dr Abdeen as well.

Paul Bemko – Feb 19, 2021
I was a 42 yo woman who had a failed hip surgery (non replacement) at another, well-known orthopedic hospital in Boston. The surgery failed miserably and I was informed the only way I'd walk again was to have a total hip replacement. That's when I found Dr. Abdeen. Not only did she say she could help me (when others said they couldn't) but she said she would do it as quickly as possible and let me know everything there was to know about my procedure, recovery and long term success. From day one, I knew I was in the right hands. My surgery went incredibly smooth, hospital stay and Dr. Abdeen's follow up care (as well as the entire surgical and nursing teams) was second-to-none. My surgery was a complete success and I am back to living life thanks to Dr. Abdeen.

I have aggressive and erosive rheumatoid arthritis for 13 years, my two knees were seriously compromised and I could no longer walk. The last 5 years have been very difficult with limitation and a lot of pain, I no longer had any hope in my life. Dr Abdeen scheduled my first knee replacement. After surgery I obviously felt some pain but nothing compared to the pain I had before the surgery, it was mild pain and no more the pain from inflammation and bone to bone. After 3 months dr Abdeen replaced my second knee, at this time was much easier because had already a great, recovered and perfect knee to help me to recover the new replacement. Dr Abdeen brought life to my body, she brought hope, dreams, energy… “Dr Abdeen brought back my desire to live”. Every day I thank God and Dr. Abdeen for my recovery. You will be always in my heart, Dr. Abdeen.

Mara R – Jul 01, 2020
Dr Abdeen came highly recommended by one of her fellow colleagues at Beth Israel Deaconess. I was made to feel as if I was wasting her time. She was short, condescending to my knowledge of anatomy and physiology (my profession deals with full knowledge of kinesiology). Her responses were arrogant. She never touch me. Pushed me off to get a hip injection and ordered PT. After 1 visit with PT they asked for an MRI to rule out Labrum issues in the hip. When I called to ask for the next step in treatment, the response I got from staff at the location "she said if it's not in her notes then it's not necessary." After seeking a new doctor that deals with people in my profession, my hip is actually destroyed.

My knee surgery experience with Dr. Abdeen was extremely painful. My pain management under her care was abysmal. I found her to be arrogant and condescending. Her communication about what to expect pre and post surgery was minimal. Stay away! There are other good Docs who are caring and compassionate.

I needed a complete hip replacement, and having other medical issues, I am very picky about my health care providers. Dr. Abdeen was outstanding, professional and very thorough. We were able to maneuver my many medications with my other physicians and the surgery and recovery went better than I could have imagined. I am a new energetic person without any hip pain, and I thank Dr. Abdeen for that.

Dr. Abdeen is a very competent surgeon and, equally important, a caring person. She replaced my left hip and did a great job. I am as good as new thanks to her skills. She listens to questions and concerns and provides answers. In addition, all of the BI support staff were fantastic.

Dr Abdeen is very good at what she does. I was totally confident with my decision to get my hip replaced with her team. It’s been 12 weeks and I’m back to normal! I’ve been diligent with physical therapy! That really helped build my strength.

Dr. Abdeen is an excellent surgeon. She also is very adept at explaining procedures, risks and outcomes. She did a knee replacement for me five years ago after I had shattered my tibia and gone through seven other surgeries to repair the bone and deal with an infection. This wasn't an easy surgery but I am now walking and golfing and doing most of the things I used to be able to do - any limitations are not the result of surgical issues but the damage I did in the original accident. Dr. Abdeen is straightforward, honest and thoughtful. I've had to visit for annual checkups as well as two times with issues that concerned me. Both of the latter were nothing out of the ordinary - just minor things that were not problematic, but each time Dr. Abdeen encouraged me to come in or call any time I was concerned about something. She could have made me feel badly about wasting her time on a trivial issue but she didn't which I appreciated. I would see Dr. Abdeen for any joint replacements.

Joyce H. – Aug 11, 2019
I have arthritis in my hips and can hardly move anymore. Dr. Abdeen does not care what I look like clinically and wants me to be a total cripple, she was very vicious about not offering hip replacements. She said to get more therapy, which I am no longer capable of and to get injections which have not helped me more than a day. If you want a caring doctor stay away from her.

with no disrespect meant,, I referred to Dr. abdeen as the miracle worker.. It has been six years since she did a total knee replacement. I was in incredible pain and even when a cane could not get around that good.it only took one visit for her to determine what had to be done. Till this day. My knee is as good or better than it has ever been in my entire life. She has an incredible reputation and now I understand why.....

I had a total hip replacement performed by Dr. Abdeen. She is an excellent surgeon who is very easy to talk with. Her explanations are very clear and she answers all questions. My hip replacement was very successful and she is continuing to follow the arthritic condition in my other hip and my knee. I highly recommended her and her team.

I recently had total hip replacement surgery with Dr. Abdeen. I felt totally comfortable, at ease and extremely fortunate with my decision to have Dr Abdeen perform my surgery. At my visits she was very caring and kind . I never felt rushed at all as we went over my long list of questions. Her PA Joshua was also very kind and helpful and never rushed through explanations. Also phone calls are returned... and in a short time frame.

Doctor Abdeen has operated on me twice. Once for a hip replacement and the second time for a knee replacement. It's been 14 weeks since my knee replacement and I'm doing great. After surgery I had both in home physical therapy for 3 weeks and then outpatient for about 4 weeks. The outpatient therapist told me that I was doing better after 7 weeks than anyone he had seen. I highly recommend Dr. Abdeen for any hip or knee replacement. I give her a 10.
