I love Doctor Gutowski! He has been open and honest with me since I first had the pleasure of being seen by him close to 5 years ago. He replaced my left knee a few years ago and now my right knee has been misbehaving. He recommended a series of 3 injections over the next 3 weeks. Injection #1 was today and I looked away as he injected me, but he is so skilled and gentle that I barely felt a thing. Now I’m feeling better than ever and so blessed that Doctor Gutowski is my doctor! Thank you.

I'm a 39 year old female who just had a THR from Dr. G. The Doctor and his staff are amazing. From the appointments at the Monroe office to the procedure at Penn Medicine in Princeton - I couldn't have been more pleased. Thank you Dr. G and your staff for helping me move on with my life with my new hip.

Dr. Gutowski did my first hip 6 yrs ago, one knee 2 years ago, and the other hip in January 2020. Except that he is very busy (for good reason) and it is hard to get that first appointment, he is a fabulous doctor by any measure: expertise, thoughtful personal treatment, amazing staff. You never feel like you are just another anonymous patient to him. In my case, an infection developed after a few weeks, and he and his staff mobilized an effort to analyze the infection, schedule a new surgery, and put in place a recovery protocol, all within 48 hrs after the first evidence of infection. The surgery was at 9 am on a Sunday! It almost frightened me, the level of attention I was getting. All completely successful.

Dr. Gutowski replaced both of my hips (different occasions) last year. He is the best doctor I’ve ever had. Great bedside manner & extremely skilled. My surgery & recovery went perfectly, his office was very attentive and helpful throughout. I’m walking with no pain and have Dr. Gutowski to thank for that.

Dr. W. Thomas Gutowski is absolutely outstanding, in terms of surgical skills restoring hips and knees, and in terms of human interaction. He really cares, in this era of nearly industrial medical care. He has restored me to my hiking/birding/kayaking life in 2011 and 2019, hip 1 and hip 2. He is as enthused as I over these vital pursuits. He would be embarrassed by this review process. Those who have been blessed by his surgical miracles call him "The King of Hips and Knees." His entire office is alive, friendly, calls you by name, remembers your medical and life situations, besides being notoriously prompt!
