Patient Comments (17)
I have had two total knee replacements with Dr. Rosa. One five years ago and a second one on the left knee in July of 2017. The process leading up to the surgery is organized and smooth. I have had great outcomes with both surgeries. I am so grateful to Dr. Rosa and his staff. I am pain free and have my life back.

I need a partial knee replaced and someone told me about Dr Rosa and I'm very glad they did. It seams this man loved the idea to fix a partial knee. This was simple to him because it showed when he was done. less than a week I was able to go upstairs with ease. One month later, still amazed and works great. Thanks Dr Rosa

Dr. Rosa is simply amazing. From an office visit to surgery and back again there I am truly grateful. He and his staff are wonderful and efficient. I would recommend everyone in need of an Orthopedic doctor to see him!

Total hip replacement & would recommend Dr. Rosa, made the experience easy, as well as his staff, very pleasant and helpful,,,
in Jersey City, NJ |
Dr. Rosa is a prime example of someone who is a credit to his field. His skill in the mechanics of my surgery, the cosmetic aspect of my incision and his post op recommendations on physical therapy and incision care are proof of his dedication. I've had two knee replacements and each time my recovery was much quicker and my incision scar more precise than any I've seen in the same circumstances. I highly recommend Dr. Rosa.
in Rockaway, NJ |
I went to Dr. Rosa for an ongoing knee problem with worsening pain. On my first visit he exhibited care and compassion toward my problem and initiated a treatment plan with a followup visit in 4 weeks. By my second visit my pain was worsening and my life was changing. He sensed that immediately, pulled his chair right up to me and said,"don't worry, we will take care of this." An MRI was immediately scheduled with a followup call diagnosing my problem and I recently had a successful surgery.
Dr. Rosa is the best! The results of my hip replacement surgery were extraordinary. I would recommend him to anyone!

Possibly, one of the best surgeons in the state! I am impressed that he uses the latest advances in his field. He is very caring and takes the time to determine what is needed by each patient. He has always been accessible to any questions or situations. I have been so impressed with the progress I have made with my "custom made" ConforMIS knee that I am scheduled to have the other one replaced in 3 months! It is a privilege to have Dr. Rosa as my surgeon!
in Andover, NJ |
Dr. Rosa performed a partial knee replacement (left knee) about 7 years ago. Very quick recovery, little or no pain and works great. I can do just about everything I could before the surgery but don't run anymore. Highly recommend if you need a partial knee replacement.
in Roselle Park, NJ |
Dr.Rosa... is a gem! He did a full hip replacement & I have never felt better. He answers all your questions & goes above and beyond as Dr. and excellent surgeon.

Dr Rosa is a kind ,caring Dr who is very thorough and explains everything. Over the last 3 years I have had a hip and knee replacement an I am walking like I did when I was younger. If you are tired of living with joint pain and you are thinking of joint replacement do not hesitate to call him. His staff is very friendly and helpful and you will feel very comfortable going there.

Great surgeon. Unbelievable results
Caldwell, NJ |
Expertise in joint replacement is incredible, uses Conformis custom knee replacement. Recommend him to all. Had a knee replacement, up and walking same night, preop pain all gone, post op pain minimal. Only two weeks into rehab and amazed how good I am doing. He and his whole staff are caring, compassionate, spend the time to answer questions, follow up phone calls. Best experience
in Newark, NJ |
After I had a left hip replacement in 2015,I thought that Dr. Rosa was the best doctor on earth. Now my right hip is causing me severe pain and the injections have not helped. He gave up on me when he couldn't find the problem. I got much worse and had to come out of work in March, and is still out. If he had treated me properly, the inflammation would not be so severe. Now I have to get a procedure, not covered by my insurance to treat the problem. He only cares about joint replacements.
in Short Hills, NJ |
Dr. Rosa had been referred to me by countless friends, nurses, and other medical specialists, and as soon as he walked into my room I understood why they respect and think the world of him. Not only is he extremely well-respected and knowledgeable, but he is a warm, understanding and caring person and doctor. I entered his office in pain and feeling hopeless but after treatment I am pain free and back to feeling renewed and positive. Thank you so much Dr. Rosa! I recommend him to everyone!
in Boonton, NJ |
Dr. Rosa and his staff were very friendly, efficient and professional. I would highly recommend their services. I was treated with respect and great bedside manner by all. The efficiency with the way the office runs is amazing. There were no long wait periods for each process needed and I didn’t feel rushed along like they were trying to get rid of me. I am very pleased I chose this practice.
in Livingston, NJ |
I would recommend Dr. Rosa. he is attentive and thorough in his explanations of how a surgical procedure progresses, along with the realistic expectations of the results of the surgery.
