Dr. Eric Black is excellent! He operated on my shoulder about 5 months ago, and with PT, I’ve regained full use of my arm/shoulder. Dr. Black actually called me the night before the surgery and day after to see how I was feeling! Dr. Black is professional, intelligent, compassionate and highly-skilled surgeon. You can trust Dr. Black. Highly recommend.

Dr Black performed total right shoulder replacement surgery in Oct 2018 at Morristown Hospital. Following 10 years of persistent pain and limited range of motion, my expectations were not very high. After five months of diligent physical therapy and daily workouts on my own, I am already performing 3 sets of 12 perfect push-ups, bench pressing 35 lb dumb bells with ease and restored approx. 90% of my range of motion. And most importantly with absolutely no pain. I would like to thank Dr. Bla

I saw Dr. Black for some pretty extensive shoulder damage I had from years of over use and injuries. His attention to detail and competent confidence gained my trust very quickly. The office and surgical suite areas are immaculate and the surgical team was top-notch. The post-operative pain was very tolerable and less than 3 months after surgery I have full range of motion, no pain, and nearing full strength. I highly recommend Dr. Black without question!!!

Prior to seeing Dr. Black, I was in an MVA and scheduled for shoulder surgery for a torn labrum. I was in pain & unable to move my shoulder for 4 mo. Every PT appointment took wks for approval. I went to Dr. Black for a 2nd opinion & he actually read the MRI in the office, diagnosed me with a frozen shoulder & gave me a steroid injection that day. 3days later, I was able to dress myself without help. PT was approved without any delays and I am 99% recovered. He is a great MD, kind and thorough.

I had a massive rotator cuff injury 4.5 months ago. After a ton of research I was thankfully referred to Dr. Black. The surgery was smooth and facility immaculate and well run. His bedside manner is excellent and the overall experience is nothing short of spectacular. He is well connected to many PTs and kept in touch with progress with them over the past 4 months since surgery. I just left my final follow up visit ahead of schedule. His reputation is the best shoulder specialist in NJ.

I had serious elbow surgery done by doctor black. I am so lucky I found this guy ! Look no further for any type of orthopedic issue. He listens to u and comes up with the best solution for u! It’s so hard to find a doctor like that. Even though he’s very busy I always feel like he’s happy to see me , he remembers me, and he wants me to get better ! He’s restored my faith in doctors after some bad experiences. Go to this guy!

Took the time to listen and explain everything. After 10 months of limited mobility and pain after a car accident Dr Black provided the care and treatments necessary to get me out of pain. Thank you!!!

About Me

Care Philosophy

I enjoy treating patients of all ages and levels of ability. I believe it is important to develop individualized treatment plans that address each of my patient's unique needs and maximize their function.

Most importantly, I believe it is essential to be conservative with surgery, and always explore nonsurgical options first when appropriate.
