A friend recommended Dr Ani as he had surgery and was very happy with the doctor. I found Dr Ani to he very friendly and showed concern with my well being. He answered all my questions and has an excellent soft spoken bedside manner. I was very pleased with the results of my back surgery. His PA Victoria G. Schiller is excellent. The entire staff is an asset to practice. I highly recommend Dr. Nasser Ani.

Dr. Ani provided me with a 2 level Cervical disc replacement using the Mobi-C system back in January of 2017. My mobility is very good in this area now. Range is outstanding! I would have never seen this kind of this kind of range with screws, brackets and bone cadaver fusion. To this day, I still fight fires (literally) and do rough-neck work. The pain I was in before this surgery was unbearable. Headaches ALL THE TIME! All of my symptoms from before are now gone. Thanks a million Doc!

For a few years, i had to live with extraordinary pain in my neck and lower back... that is until a friend recommended i see Dr. Ani. He ended up performing surgery on both. The time for recovery on both was relatively very short. He, and his staff, were very cordial and professional, easing up all the complicatitons of the pain, treatment, surgeries and recovery. I became a changed person as most of the pain went away.I can recommend Dr. Ani with great confidence to anyone needing an orthopedic

I have been a patient of Dr. Ani's for 6 years for issues concerning herniated disks in my cervical, thoracic, lumbar and sacrum areas of my spine. Dr. Ani has performed carpal tunnel release surgeries for both my hands, an ulnar nerve release surgery, and injections along my spine for pain relief. These surgeries went as planned and explained by the doctor. All that are employed in his group are excellent and helpful. Dr. Ani has also treated my parents for various reasons with good results.
in Hazlet, NJ |
After four years of attempting to manage chronic pain from a neck injury, Dr. Ani recommended cervical disc replacement surgery. I was hesitant at first, but he took the time to address all of my concerns about the procedure and his staff went above and beyond in dealing with insurance related issues. It has only been one week since my surgery, but the results have been immediate. I feel better than I have in years, and look forward to getting back to my pre-injury self.

Dr. Ani is a most compassionate and caring physician who really takes time to listen to my concerns. He offers individualized treatment and options. He does not tell me that I must do something unless he has given me all of my options. Then, after careful consideration, we decide on a method of treatment. I have been a patient of Dr. Ani's for almost thirty years and never once during that time have I had any reservations nor questions about his treatment and recommendations.
