Linda Raiser, Ocean View, NJ 08230 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!!!! Linda Raiser

Total Knee Replacement Physician: Richard Islinger, MD
As a 73 year old male who is enthusiastic about martial arts, about a four mile daily walk, and about a one hour daily swim, I am tremendously grateful to Dr. Richard Islinger. He completed a total replacement of my knee, and repaired a severely damaged rotator cuff, which required seven anchors.
I not only benefited greatly from his expertise and competence as a surgeon, but also from his kind, caring, assuring manner. His thorough explanations and keen interest in my welfare before and after surgery contributed greatly to me being able to return to my highly active lifestyle. I am greatly Indebted to Dr. Islinger.

Just returned home yesterday from a 2 day stint at Shore Memorial Hospital. This isn’t the first time I’ve visited this hospital in Somers Point, NJ-but it has been a great experience. Maybe it’s due to the new construction, maybe due to all the bad pharmacy publicity; but for whatever reason; Shore Memorial Hospital has impressed me totally!! From the beautiful new facilities, to the extraordinary nursing staff, they are a class above any hospital I’ve had the opportunity to visit, experience, & even recuperate in!
Thank you to all the staff & surgeons in the Surgical Joint unit!
You did such a wonderful job on my new hip!! Now to get the rehabbing done & get back onto the Bridge!!!
Thanks to Dr. Islinger & all the staff of Shore Orthopaedics & his surgical unit! You indeed are Strong with the Force! Thank you for a job well done!
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+.
