in East Hanover, NJ 07936 |
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!

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.

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

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.
