Have had knee and shoulder surgery by Dr. Ducey. Both times I was very happy with the end results. He is a wonderful surgeon. I am 66 years old, and with his skills, I am back to my active self! He is patient and kind. He treats patients with respect. He doesn't rush into anything.
I was in constant shoulder pain for 18 months when I saw Dr Ducey. He did all appropriate testing, trials and referrals then diagnosed quickly. When shoulder surgery was indicated it was scheduled quickly and went extremely well. Dr Ducey is knowledgeable, kind and encouraging and very willing to answer any questions or concerns without rushing. Six months post surgery I am getting my shoulder back and using it in ways I haven't for a long time. I recommend Dr Ducey highly; he's the best!

I am a physical therapist and have known Dr Ducey for many years, he just operated my right hand for trigger thumb 3/31/2017 and as always, it was a great experience. No more pain since the procedure, stitches are off and I will start physical therapy today. I highly recommend Dr. Ducey to my patients and family

Dr. Ducey is a warm, caring surgeon and I would recommend him to anyone.

I am 91 and had the reverse shoulder replacement surgery done about 3 years ago by Dr. Ducey. My recovery was quick and I've been functioning 99% normal ever since then. I'm back again for his expertise for the other arm... I wouldn't trust anyone else! If only all my other Drs were as attentive, knowledgeable and personable as he is.
The office is so nice and well kept. The office staff is friendly and helpful. Dr Ducey has such a great, caring personality. I have had a few surgeons and he's got the best bedside manner of any I have seen.

Was so impressed by him! He came highly recommended by quite a few people I know. He is a busy guy, the waiting room is always packed. I was surprised that when it was my turn to get seen he sat down and did a thorough evaluation of my condition. I decided after going for several opinions, Dr Ducey was who I felt most comfortable with. I am very satisfied with my results and recommend him HIGHLY.

Exceptional professional and decicated bed side manner. I tore my rotator cuff twice in seven months first time due to bad care from another doctor then i went to Dr Ducey and was taken care of properly
in Highland Lakes, NJ |
Had a shoulder birth injury that was operated on when I was born. Caused increasing pain & immobility for almost 70 years. Most doctors wouldn't touch it. Broke my arm twice before the surgery. Dr. Ducey performed a reverse total shoulder replacement combined with repair of the broken humerus. Dr. Ducey explained, in advance, that I would continue to have limited mobility, but that there would be reduction in pain. He was spot on regarding pain. Gone! Mobility is not bad. NEW LEASE ON LIFE!

Dr. Ducey provided great guidance through a troubling knee injury from examinations, MRI recommendation, consultation and options after the results were verified. Once surgery was agreed upon, with 3 tears to the meniscus in my left knee, Dr. Ducey did a wonderful job in surgery with his team at the surgical center. I was up and walking immediately and through my own steadfast rehab, my knee is doing very well. I would recommend Dr. Ducey every day. His professionalism is great, and he listens.

From the initial phone call to the office, I felt confident and knew I had chosen the right office. The receptionist made me feel very comfortable. Then when I met Dr. Ducey he instilled his knowledge and professionalism to treat my daughter with top of the notch care.
