Dr. Lynch replaced both of my knees. One 7 years ago and one 5 years ago. Both are doing great allowing me to continue playing tennis 3-4 times a week and on a USTA team. He is an excellent surgeon and I would highly recommend to anyone in need of this surgery.

I was back to work in 15 days after my hip replacement. I was very impressed with the care and treatment prior to surgery, during my hospitalization, and after surgery. I have already recommended Dr. Lynch to three friends.

He is very easy to talk to regarding concerns and worries over the procedure. Friends have had their knees replaced by him and sing his praises. I feel confident having my knees replaced by Dr. Lynch.

Office staff was exceptionally kind. Went out of their way to help me. Very short wait time. Dr. Lynch was extremely professional and informative but at the same time gentle and unhurried. I felt “heard.” I decided immediately that this person I had initially sought as a second opinion would be my surgeon.

Dr. Lynch brings his expertise and long time experience to the table and he has performed total knee replacements (2 at once) and a total right hip replacement on me several years back that have been a life changer for me. I place great trust in Doctor Lynch with his judgements, and surgical skills. He is a WINNER!!

Dr. Lynch provided amazing care from the first diagnostic appointment through my one year follow-up for hip replacement surgery. Due to his diligence in providing information, I was always extremely confident in my decision to proceed with my sugery. My outcome was amazing and should I need another replacement, I will not hesitate to turn to Dr. Lynch.

Staff and Doctors have been excellent. From my first aches to and through my knee replacements. Thank you to Dr. Reznik (everything), Dr. Lynch (knees & hips, Dr. W (back issues), their staffs and I expect that I will feel the same when I need to see any other specialist within the group. I appreciate the positive outcomes and support following each ailment and procedure.
