Dr. Aita performed a surgery on my arm in March. From the very first appointment, he was very professional, friendly and took time to explain the procedure thoroughly. Follow up appointments were just as thorough. I would highly recommend Dr. Aita.

Dr. Aita is a very professional, friendly doctor. From my first appointment with Dr. Aita, I felt less worried and more comfortable. He is a very knowledgeable doctor, and I wouldn't have wanted to see any other orthopedic.

professional, knowledgeable, and a good listener.
in Lawrenceville, NJ |
He is a fantastic surgeon. I would recommend him to anybody.

Trenton, NJ |
Dr. Aita was a very good doctor, as well as surgeon. He let me decide how I felt, to do PT for awhile before I came to terms with having surgery. The surgery went well and he was very positive on how I would recover quickly (and I did!).
in Yardley, PA |
I honestly couldn't have asked for better care or treatment that I received through Dr. Aita and his staff at Trenton Orthopedic. I would highly recommend the staff to any of my close family and friends. Having two surgeries on my right hand i could not ask for anymore. The recovery time was very fast, pain was not much of a concern what so ever, and the staff was amazing with all of the help they provided.

Dr Aita was fantastic. He explained the situation clearly, gently manipulated the joint into place and ensured that it was more than "good enough;" he worked it until it was "perfect." Staff assisting Dr. Aita were excellent.
in Trenton, NJ |
Very happy with the whole experiance. Dr Aita kept me well informed and made me feel very comfortable.
Trenton, NJ |
I would absolutely recommend Dr Aita, from the first visit with him he took exceptionally good care of our son. He explained each and every detail of our son's surgery, why it was necessary and what we could expect going forward. He answered every one of our questions and we felt very much at ease prior to surgery. Surgery went great with no post-op complications. After surgery he made sure our son got the Occupational Therapy he needed and our child is 100% healed. Dr Aita is wonderful!
in Trenton, NJ |
Extremely knowledgeable and aware of all effects that may happen. Carpal tunnel was scary and I was extremely at ease with the best results I could have imagined. My hand doesn't feel or look as if there was a surgery at all. A little more work to due for lifting strength and back to normal.
in West Windsor, NJ |
I have been seeing Dr. Aita for the last 4 years for numerous things. He is very patient, listens, answers questions, and explains procedures very thoroughly. He doesn't rush you out of the office, but takes his time to make sure you are comfortable and understand all procedures, especially if having surgery. I completely trust him and have recommended him to numerous family members and friends. You are in good "hands" with Dr. Aita.
in Trenton, NJ |
Very caring, listens to all your concerns. Does not make you feel rushed so he can move on to next patient . Answers your questions till you understand all your options.
Trenton, NJ |
Dr. Aita and his entire staff are top-notch! From the friendly folks at reception, to the nurses and assistants, to Bill Stubbs, the PT, and Dr. A himself, my care, surgery and treatment were a cake-walk! No long waits in the waiting room, either!
in Trenton, NJ |
Dr. Aita was caring and understanding of my daughter's desire to get back on the soccer field. He took the time to explain the healing process and answered all of her questions.
Trenton, NJ |
Dr Aita is very thorough in explaining all diagnosis and treatment, as well as follow up. I would highly recommend him to friends and family.

He was very nice and helpful in my recovery. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
in Trenton, NJ |
Dr, Aita was very comforting and relaxing. He explained the procedure very well to me and explained what I would need to care for my finger at home. The staff was very friendly and pleasant to talk to. I would suggest Dr. Aeta and TOG to anyone who needs a orthopedic doctor.
in Trenton, NJ |
I almost took my whole finger off with a snowblower. Dr Aita took care of me and he was amazing. I didn't lose my finger. His staff and him are very caring. Wouldn't go anywhere else.
in Trenton, NJ |
Dr. Aita was my daughter's surgeon when she broke her elbow. He was very informative both before and after the surgery. It was very easy to schedule the initial appointment and the surgery was scheduled for the next day.
