Dr. Dhanaraj performed my pectoralis major tendon repair surgery. He explained clearly the diagnosis, the repair procedure, and the expected therapy and recovery process. Surgery went smoothly. The professionals at Princeton Bone & Joint, and at Princeton Hospital, were on top of everything. Six months post-surgery and I'm able to return to normal activities with full range of motion and no pain. Very grateful to have been treated by such a skilled surgeon and caring group.

100% likely to recommend Dr. Dhanaraj. I had shoulder surgery December 2015 and with great results!!!. I've been pain free and with complete mobility to enjoy my tennis matches and exercise routines. Dr Dinesh Dhanaraj is an excellent surgeon and extremely talented in explaining the content related to the surgical procedure as well as recovery expectations.
