Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. El-Gazzar "I believe that joint preservation is the future of orthopedic surgery. Damage to the cartilaginous surfaces of joints does not repair itself in adults. The inability of the human body to regenerate or repair joint surface cartilage continues to be a modern day mystery. As we strive to become more active and live healthier, it is inevitable that sports injuries occur more frequently. Patients now have many options in how to treat this damage."

in Springfield NJ |
Dr. El-Gazzar is the finest surgeon I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. He took care of my son as a charity patient when he shattered his elbow. We were so lucky to have had him as Jesse's surgeon. He has a reputation for arrogance, but he has earned that right, because he's just that good. I unconditionally recommend him to your attention. I don't even care about the extended wait times to see him at the hospital... we were, after all, a charity case.

I highly recommend Doctor El-Gazzer to all my friends and families. He is passionate and committed to each patient and makes sure he provides the best possible care.
in Jersey City, NJ |
I've been to many doctors over past years and I can safely say that this is the first time I was compelled to write a review. The doctor himself is very busy but he takes the time to explain everything until you feel comfortable with your diagnosis. Also Dr Elgazzar is NOT "let's rush surgery", surgery was the last resort after we tried all other options. The office is very modern and clean and the staff were pleasant and professional. I recommend him highly.

Great Professional. Very intelligent, and trust worthy. Not part of the big Business field of medicine. Really is concern with my well being and gets me back on track.
in Jersey City, NJ |
Best experience!
He was very patient and sat with me to discuss what was wrong. Great quality of care and hospitality.
Jersey City, NJ |
Please do yourself a favor never go and see Dr El-Gazzar. I was made to wait 120 minutes before his assistant come and took a stock at my problem. 6 mins that's what he took to document my years old problem. Then comes Dr El-Gazzar, a self proclaimed super busy guy, not in mood to understand patient needs and problem. He spent 2 mins, yeah that's right 2 MINS, and went away. Then comes his assistant back again and gave me prescription and left the room. That's it the appointment was over.
