Q: Are there benefits to having different orthopedic
specialties within one practice?
A: Yes. Our group offers patients state-of-the-art treatment in three key areas: Dr. Stephen Ducey is
our sports medicine expert, Dr. Seth Queler is our foot
and ankle specialist, and my expertise is in hip and knee
replacement. We are all fellowship trained in our respective
orthopedic specialties, and now that we have relocated to
our brand new office building in Nutley, we are bringing
an even higher level of care to our patients.
Q: So what types of specialty care do you provide to
A: We treat sports injuries and arthritic conditions
that result in pain and disability. Common procedures
include minimally invasive hip and knee replacement,
arthroscopic shoulder surgery and rotator cuff repair, and
treatments for foot and ankle deformities, bunions and
ankle pain. In fact, Dr. Queler is known for his skill in performing complex ankle replacement surgery with exceptional outcomes.
Q: That’s impressive. What kind of results can
patients expect following a surgical procedure?
A: We have a reputation for practicing clinically
proven, conservative medicine and achieving exemplary
results. This is because we tailor treatment for each individual patient and the specific condition. For example,
sometimes instead of total knee replacement, I perform
an outpatient partial knee replacement, which is a smaller
procedure with a faster recovery. Our group offers surgical
and nonsurgical solutions and we’ve earned a reputation
for helping people return to the activities they love. In fact,
many patients have told us that their surgery was truly life
changing—and nothing feels better than that.

Dr. Gary Pess, managing partner
Q: What is the
cause and possible treatment if
a person’s finger
is stuck in a bent
hereditary disease known as
Dupuytren’s contracture can cause
bent fingers. It
usually starts as
a painless nodule
in the palm of the
hand and can progress, causing the fingers to contract. At
Central Jersey Hand Surgery, we offer two new treatments
and have provided solutions for more than 4,000 patients.
Needle aponeurotomy is a minimally invasive procedure
that takes 15 to 20 minutes and does not require anesthesia. There is no incision and the fingers can be moved
immediately. Xiaflex® is a new injectable medication that
is administered in an office procedure and “dissolves” the
contracted Dupuytren’s cord.
