I am a 68 year old man who had never had any surgery of any type and I was totally doctor-phobic. Additionally, I’m a fanatical bike rider and dancer, who plays tennis and skis regularly. It would be hard to describe the intense degree of fear I had surrounding the prospect of going “under the knife” to repair a torn meniscus in my left knee for the first time.
Dr. Osuch, with his kind, low-key, assuaging manner was able to defuse some of my extreme paranoia about the impending operation. Dr. Osuch never portrayed any arrogance or a pedantic attitude while thoroughly explaining what the operation would involve. I never felt rushed by him, nor did he ever dismiss my fears, but instead he played along with my twisted brand of humor, which I used to hide my fears. The operation was a miraculous success. I never took any pain medication that I was given. I followed Dr. Osuch’s “flexible activity instructions” and after 6 weeks I’m feeling like I’m about 90% back to being whole again and I’m able to ride my bike 25 miles and dance as I wish. Dr. Osuch is a great surgeon! Thank you Dr. Osuch for keeping my life whole.
Dear Dr. Shah and Staff,
If a picture is worth a 1,000 words then here are three pictures of thanks. After knee surgery in February and physical therapy, it was no problem at all to climb the stairs to the crown of the Statue of Liberty this weekend! Thanks for your great care! Blessings…
Dr. Zannikos performed a laminectomy on me in July, and two months later, I’m feeling great, better than in the past several years. Dr. Zannikos provided exceptional responsiveness, caring, and professionalism throughout the whole process. He is a superb surgeon who instilled confidence in me and kept me informed in advance of what to expect and how things would be handled. I would recommend him highly to anyone with spine or back issues. Thank you so much Dr. Zannikos! And thank you to the whole team at Orthopedics New England and Leonard Morse Hospital.
I just wanted to take a moment and thank Dr. Sean Rockett for the great work on the two surgeries he did for me. I had a rotated cuff done back in December 2013 and elbow surgery in August 2014. Everything you and your staff have done for me is greatly appreciated. Both surgeries went smooth and I have had a wonderful recovery!
I’ve just seen Dr. Osuch for the second time-different injury. Both times were a great experience. Everyone I came into contact with was friendly and helpful. Dr. Osuch listened to my concerns/issues and explained things well. The first issue has resolved and this newest issue is on its way. Thank you!
I saw Dr. Rose for extreme pain in my right heel; he was very friendly and listened carefully to me on every visit. He diagnosed my pain immediately as a heel spur–even before the confirming X-ray. He was very thorough, leveraging many different treatments. Eventually, it seemed surgery was the best option, and he scheduled and completed it quickly. Since the surgery, I have been pain free! I am so grateful for Dr. Rose’s help–it has made a profound difference in my quality of life.
To let you know how well Megan Welsh treats your clients-A +plus on time efficient, helpful, and a pleasant visit…thank you!
I met Dr. Osuch and knew immediately that he was kind and compassionate. He treated me for two different injuries (one was a broken ankle) and took amazing care of me. Dr. Osuch is the perfect doctor!
Excellent experience. I was seen promptly, and my problem, the prognosis, and treatment plan were explained clearly, fully, and patiently by Dr. Christiano.
Dr. Osuch is an amazing doctor! He cares about his patients and wants them to have as little pain as possible. He did knee surgery on my left knee in 2013 and just did my right knee two weeks ago. Due to my diabetes I have a longer recovery process, and Dr. Osuch had made sure that I have the least painful recovery process as possible. I would recommend him to anyone and it’s nice to know that there are still doctors that care about their patients and Dr. Osuch is definitely one of them!
I would like to take a moment to thank you and your staff for the wonderful care that I received when I had surgery at Leonard Morse last month. I had shoulder surgery performed by Dr. Ethan Healy with Dr. Dennis Rand providing anesthesiology care. The surgical and anesthesiology care was excellent and the surgical nurse care was excellent as well. I also want to mention the pre-op care which was also great.
The office staff was so helpful and customer service was top notch! I had to bring my two young children with me and all the staff members were so kind and personable to all of us making the visit a pleasant experience. Without hesitation I will recommend Dr. Rose and Orthopedics New England.
Dr. Rockett performed a Bankart repair on my shoulder. I sought him out as a surgeon (changed my pcp to get the referral) because I knew he was a fellow athlete and would consider my activity level. His diagnosis and treatment were perfect, we tried traditional methods before surgery and he did not waste time once it was established that I did require the procedure. He explained everything to me in great detail. I am five months after the surgery and my quality of life is dramatically improved, I can sleep at night without pain. He knew my athletic profile and was neither too conservative or too liberal in getting me back to the gym. Additionally, he was extremely accessible during all phases of my treatment and prepared my expectations accurately. I would highly recommend Dr. Rockett.
I can’t thank Dr. Osuch enough for everything he has done for me. I am a dancer and sometimes a lot of people don’t understand dancer injuries but Dr. Osuch knows just how to handle any of my injuries. I have had a lot of complications with my hip and my thigh and anytime that I needed to see him he made sure that I could get in and we would find the best solutions to make me feel better. Thank you for taking care of me.
Well it’s hard to believe that it’s been one year since taking a chance on you, Dr. Rcokett and your scalpel to give back my pain free days. I’ve got to tell you it was pretty hard being confident that anything or anyone could take the pain away. I never would’ve imagined that “arthritis” could be so debilitating and I’ve finally accepted that I truly am pain free every morning when my toes touch the ground! I wonder with every step if I’m dreaming! Thank you from the very bottom of my heart!
Wow..I can walk normally again! I limped into Orthopedics New England after injuring my knee and was diagnosed with a large tear in the meniscus of my right knee. I am 61 and have never had surgery before, so I was quite apprehensive. Surgery was scheduled with Dr. Shah. Surgery was performed at Newton-Wellesley Hospital. After surgery I was issued crutches and wheeled to the car. I never needed the crutches. I walked from the car up the stairs into the house. Following Dr. Shah’s instructions, I “iced and elevated” for 48 hours. I never experienced any pain and never even took an aspirin. The follow up exam was great. Thanks Dr. Shah!
RE: Stenosis Shots L4 +L5
I just wanted to say thank you to you, Nurse Pamela and Matt! All so kind and caring….Thank you for making it not such a scare experience!
I just want to extend a sincere thank you to all the doctors, PAs, and support staff, on behalf of myself and Millis Athletics, for all of your help, care, and support through this past school year. I feel very lucky and privileged to have an entire orthopedics office of people who I trust and can always rely on as a resource for the athletes and families here in Millis!
I have had ankle pain for a while as my primary care doctor was trying to figure out what was wrong. She could not, so she referred me to Orthopedics New England, and it has been the best care I have ever received. Dr. Rose is so caring and compassionate and I can’t say all the words I would like to on how wonderful he is. He first said that he wanted to surgically fix my ankle and then the next appointment I had with him, he said I re-looked at your MRI’S and he said it some place where I really don’t want to do surgery. So I accepted that and he referred me to a wonderful physical therapist that he has been working with for over 30+ years. He takes the time to sit down and talk to his patients which I really like. He likes to exhaust all options before going the surgery route. I would recommend Dr. Mark Rose D.P.M. to any one that need foot or ankle help. Thanks again Dr. Rose and the wonderful Orthopedic New England Staff!
