      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Hoerner's Care Philosophy

      I have dedicated myself to personalized joint replacement surgery of the hip and knee with the goal of minimalizing risk and optimizing patient satisfaction. To be the best I can be I regularly attend the meetings of the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons and the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgery. I visit and learn the latest techniques by visiting and learning from the innovators of new techniques while being cautious with unproven procedures as we base all our decision making on current evidence based medicine.

      Dr. Hoerner says...

      I will be forever grateful for my youthful experience as the Grandson of an Engineer and the son of the Medical Director of the New Jersey Orthopedic Hospital. As a youth I sustained a fracture dislocation of my elbow with a long recovery requiring farther surgery at HSS. These experiences moved me to a love of Orthopedic Surgery for all it importance to individuals and their quality of life. I have spent 31 years in surgical practice since completing one of the most competitive  training  programs in the country. As a medical student at Cornell and the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York and in my Residency in the Harvard Combined Orthopaedic program followed by my Fellowship at the Brigham and Women's Hospital I had an extraordinary experience in the development and evolution of modern Total Knee Replacement surgery. 6 years ago I travelled to Houston to learn Anterior Total Hip Replacement surgery from Dr. Stefan Kreuzer and more recently MAKO robotic surgery from Dr. Robert Marchand. I will continue to work to be as excellent and cutting edge a surgeon as I can be to minimize risk and give my patients the best outcomes

      Dr. Hoerner says...

      I have mastered minimally invasive anterior approach hip replacement surgery by having performed over 400 and have trained other surgeons in this technique. I also have mastered robotic MAKO partial knee replacement surgery and minimally invasive Total Knee Replacement surgery having performed over well over 4000 of these procedures.
