Total Knee Replacement
Physician: Richard B. Islinger, MD
I had a Total Knee Replacement by Dr. Islinger at Shore Medical Center 5 years ago.
I have often said that I could be the poster child for knee replacement. Very, very little pain or discomfort. He was just wonderful, as was the hospital staff, and his office staff. I probably should not say this, but at my 2 1/2 week appointment I was told by his PA that I was doing so well (walked in without the walker) that I could go ahead and do what I felt. I felt that I could drive, and go back to the gym, which I did!!!
To this day, I have had zero problems with my knee. Thank you, thank you!!!!

Physician: Frederick G. Dalzell, MD
I had a fantastic experience with my knee scope. Walked out of surgery and never needed any pain medication. Went right back to work the next day. I was given permission to row after two weeks, and did so with no pain.
Thank you to Dr. Dalzell and the fine staff.

Physician: Stephen J. Zabinski, MD
Dr Zabinski has helped me through 6 years of orthopaedic issues. It began with severe tendinitis in my hip and eventually 2 torn rotator cuffs. I’m pleased to say that the left torn rotator is a complete success, and a new right hip is mostly successful (he warned me that I wouldn’t get 100%relief due to the tendinitis).
However, I had great care during these 2 procedures and most likely will have my right rotator repaired by Dr Zabinski as well. Great staff and follow up.

Physician: Ira M. Fox, DPM
I have had Dr. Ira Fox perform a surgery on my foot in 2012 and he is an excellent surgeon and my foot is great and you can’t even see the scar. Today he operated on my son’s foot. My son had an issue tonight and I called the answering service and they said the on call doctor would call me not Dr. Fox. About 10 minutes later my phone rang and it was Dr. Fox. He was out having dinner after a long day of surgeries and patients and he took the time to personally call me. He is a wonderful surgeon and a good man. These are qualities that you rarely find today and to be treated like a person and not just a number that most caregivers treat you like. I have had surgeries done by Dr. DeMorat also. This is a wonderful group of doctors. I can’t thank Dr. Fox enough for his care and concern.

Dear Dr. Zabinski,
This is Joanna DeSantis, the PT from Nova Care. In December’15 you did a meniscectomy on my R knee. This thank you is long overdue, however I wanted to write, to not only thank you for ﬁxing me, but to thank you for 2 conversations we had, that had a signiﬁcant impact on my racing success! If you recall I was signed up to do the Ironman 70.3 in
Atlantic City on 9/18/16 (my 1st at this distance) and that torn meniscus did not ﬁt into my training plan!
As I write this and reﬂect on the race day, I can’t help but think that this journey started in an OR in December. However, it also made me recall those post op conversations we had, although tough for me to hear, had a signiﬁcant impact on my racing success this season and for these I am grateful to you for:
