Dr Jeffrey Charen performed a total knee replacement for me at JFK in Edison, NJ, in January '18. I'm extremely happy with the work he did, and I would recommend him to anybody.

Dr. Charen did an AMAZING job on my knee! The scar is even barely visible and it feels as if I never had gotten surgery. He made me feel comfortable before and after the procedure and also makes sure his patients get the best results!
