Shoulder Pain Keeping You Up at Night?

20150617-JW0A0179RT

Gene J. DeMorat, MD

The shoulder joint is capable of tremendous mobility to assist in the essential activities of everyday life. It relies upon a group of muscles, known as the rotator cuff, to ensure its function for overhead and lifting activities.

Unfortunately, the rotator cuff is commonly associated with injury. Such injuries may occur from a simple fall onto the shoulder or even from the accumulation of simple lifting events over our lifetime.

The most common symptoms are pain, weakness, and motion loss. Symptoms may develop suddenly or in a gradual onset. Symptoms that persist beyond a two week period, without signs of relief, should be evaluated by an orthopaedic surgeon.

Thank you Dr. Alber for the impact you’ve had on the life I’ve been able to live after your care!

Dr. George C. Alber, Constance Daniels

patientstories_000Constance Daniels Is A True Inspiration!
Seven years after being hit head on by a drunk driver and receiving numerous injuries that required multiple surgeries and a lot of hard work and dedication on her part, Constance Daniels just completed a 70.3 mile Half Ironman Triathlon.

Constance was treated for various injuries including concussion, collapsed and punctured lungs, broken ribs, hip dislocation, glass removal from her hands and knees and fractures in both feet leaving her with a metal plate and thirteen screws in her right foot.

George C. Alber, MD Orthopedic Surgeon initially treated Constance and continued to treat her for several years performing multiple surgeries while prescribing ongoing Physical Therapy. Constance remained persistent throughout and said her goal all along was to run again.

Not only has she been able to run again, the Half Ironman Triathlon she recently completed included 1.2 miles of swimming, 56 miles of biking and 13.1 miles of running.

     Dr. Alber -”When I got into the accident 7 years ago I was on my way to the gym to train for my first 5K. After the accident my goal all throughout rehab was to complete that race I had been training for. If it were not for all that you did I know I would not have been able to do it. Just wanted to remind you what an impact you have on your patients and the lives they live after your care”.
      Thank you, Constance Daniels

Going to Dr. Islinger’s office is a real treat. Beautiful surroundings, flat screen televisions, family seating, and a Keurig coffee maker greet you. You are seen quickly by a staff member as you sign in and the wait has never been very lengthy. Staff keeps you apprised of any waits or how long you can expect to wait. The Doctor greets you warmly and listens to what you have to say – very carefully.

Dr. Richard B. Islinger is exemplary. He takes a very personal interest in your care and should you meet him outside of the office or hospital he is the kind of Doctor that will remember you and your case and he is the kind of man that will greet you as a friend. He takes your care as seriously as if you were his relative and he goes to far ends to solve difficult problems which he then takes great pains to help you understand.I never felt alone for either he, or his Associate Doctor, came quickly at each crisis.

I had had a knee replacement in 2011 which went excellently for the most part, but in April 2014 I had an onset of pain and found that my knee had become infected. He went through three debridement surgeries with me and now I am well and strong and have 90% use of the knee. Since I am 70, I think that’s kind of remarkable. Dr. Islinger is an excellent, thorough, and compassionate Surgeon that I would rate an A+.

Joe Leo

Joe just returned from vacation in Florida, he is so happy he was able to swim and walk on the beach again.

  • Joe Leo, Toms River, NJ 08753
  • Quad Sparing Total Knee Replacement – Right Knee
  • Physician: Stephen J. Zabinski, MD
  • Date of Procedure: February 25, 2014


Joe had been putting off knee replacement surgery for about a year.  The extensive rehab time and the daunting thought of being out of work for several months had him apprehensive about the surgery. Joe lives in the Toms River area and had seen several Orthopedic Physicians, they all told him the same thing. The average recovery time he heard was three to five days in the hospital, then around twenty days in a rehab facility, and out of work on disability for about three months.
