Dr Hornstein took care of both my shoulders over the past 3 years. Two rotor cuff repairs, 2 really good shoulders. He was attentive to my needs and explained in detail his surgery plan. He likes to use videos to show me what the surgery would look like. I always recommend Dr Hornstein to my friends and family.

Dr. Hornstein fixed my son's dislocated shoulder - he is back tohockey and playing great - I would send anyone to him. Very nice guy, nice office too. His surgery scheduler was super helpful

I've been a patient of Dr. Hornsteins for several years, and after exhausting all options for my shoulder pain, surgery was the next step. Dr. Hornstein explained the entire procedure, what to expect after surgery and the importance of post-op physical therapy. Only a few short months later I am 100% better and have no pain. I have recommended him to several family members and friends and will continue to do so.

Dr. Hornstein has now fixed both shoulders, and one hip. He is professional , personal, and is a gifted surgeon. I highly recommend him if you need rotator cuff surgery, or hip.
Dr. Hornstein was empathetic and interested in my description of my injury and the pain I was experiencing. He gave me a thorough examination and suggested an X-Ray which was performed at the office. He explained what the X-Ray showed and prescribed an initial regimen of physical therapy. I was pleased with the thoroughness of the diagnosis and the reason for PT rather than surgery. I have made significant progress and believe I will be 100% soon.

Dr. Hornstein is awesome! He fixed my shoulder and I'm back to my normal activities! I also appreciated that he spent a lot of time explaining things to me during my office visits even when I could see the office was very busy.

Dr. Hornstein performed my hip surgery and I have had an excellent outcome. He's an excellent surgeon who takes the time to explain everything to you. Highly recommended!
in New Providence, NJ |
Dr. Hornstein performed a hip scope procedure on me a few months ago. Now I feel I could go on Dancing with the Stars!
in Trenton, NJ |
I cant talk enough about how great of care i received from Dr. H. I had seen several providers before seeing him and he was, far and away, the best. His office staff was courteous and his bedside manner is professional. Definitely recommend!
in Robbinsville, NJ |
If you have orthopedic pain, make an apointment with Dr. Hornstein, who treated me for chronic shoulder and neck pain. When diagnostics showed a tear in the left rotator cuff and impingement syndrome, surgery was needed. Dr Hornstein did the surgery and followed up as I did the PT.. He is attentive, kind, and most importantly importantly, highly skilled. Now, I am pain-free with a full range of motion.??????

Our daughter plays tennis and suffered a shoulder injury. Dr. Hornstein's expertise as a sports medicine doctor, combined with his outgoing and friendly personality, made for an outstanding experience. He was very patient during the exam and put my daughter (and me) totally at ease, and was able to diagnose the issue quickly and prescribe corrective action that was effective and had her back on the court quickly. I will definitely be bringing my entire family to him for any future issues.
in Lawrenceville NJ |
Dr. Hornstein is my savior. When I dislocated my shoulder skiing I thouggt for sure my life was over. Dr. H got me in to see him almost immediately. He put me at ease, explained everything in detail and got me into the operating room within 3 days. It has been two months since surgery and I'm already back to all of my activities. Amazing doctor, superb bedside manner, professional...and just a really good person. See this doc if you have orthopedic issues.

Dr. Hornstein says...

My background is in minimally invasive shoulder and knee surgery.  I recently added hip arthroscopy/hip preservation to my repertoire.  As TOG Orthopaedics is a subspecialty-based practice, I have been able to hone my skills over 13 years to where I am professionally today.  I have extensive experience in the areas of rotator cuff tears, shoulder instability, and the entire constellation of shoulder maladies.  I can manage "bread and butter" knee problems as well as complex multi-ligament injuries, patellar instability and articular cartilage problems.  Our practice follows the philosophy "Do what you do best". We do our best to get our patients to the physician most-suited to manage the problem at hand.
