THE VERY BEST total joint replacement expert in the world

I heard of Dr. Buechel for many years and finally needed to see a top total joint dr. I was surprised to be able to make an appointment here in New Jersey. I looked up his credentials and was more impressed. I had my total hip replacement and had excellent treatment, he spoke to me honestly and in understandable terms. The surgery was explained by his assistant who gave me a folder with useful information and literally STEP BY STEP things that I needed to know and do. It was a very stressLESS experience and my results were phenomenal !

Not helpful

Recommended unorthodox ozone treatments not covered by insurance to help shoulder pain. It didn't help. Conservative treatment otherwise. Ended up going elsewhere.
