Physician: George C. Alber, MD
Two surgeries in two years on my left arm…. A rotator cuff mess and a shredded forearm tendon. I went to see Dr Alber and I got what I needed. No nonsense diagnosis and treatment plan. He spoke, I listened, I agreed! Two surgeries later, I’ve had great results, he is a true consummate professional. I was lucky to find him and I wonder what our next adventurous bone fix will be?
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS FINE DR!

Knee replacement surgeries are a daily occurrence for Dr. Stephen Zabinski and his fellow orthopedic surgeons at Shore Orthopaedic University Associates (SOUA) in Somers Point. “Knees are by far the most common of all joints that are replaced,” said Dr. Zabinski who has been performing knee replacement surgery for more than 20 years. “Knees are also the joint most commonly affected by osteoarthritis. They are also the most subjective to sports injury and most affected by weight. Those factors can wear the knees away.”
Most patients will visit SOUA with complaints of discomfort from osteoarthritis, though there are many forms of arthritis that negatively impact joints and bones. Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis in the knee. It is a degenerative, “wear-and-tear” type of arthritis where the cartilage gradually wears away. It occurs most often in people age 50 and older, but may occur in younger people as well, according to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. Dr. Zabinski added that genetics also plays a factor and said people who tend to sit cross-legged as they eat, or kneel often may have significant discomfort in their knee simply because they are putting a lot of additional stress on the knee itself.
Hello, my name is Stephen Barbuto.
Back in 2008 I was in a bad motorcycle accident. I had broken both bones in my lower left leg as well as many bones in my foot. I was helicoptered to AtlantiCare which is where I had the privilege of meeting Dr. Alber.
He performed multiple surgeries on my leg which in the beginning other doctors told me I might not be able to walk again. Dr. Alber knew from the beginning that he would be able to do something about it. I can cry when I think back of going to his office for checkups because of the genuine care he showed to me and my family. It was a devastating time in my life and but I can say wholeheartedly that Dr. Alber went above and beyond to help me get better not only physically but also mentally. My accident was exactly 10 years ago. Dr. Alber and I lost touch about a year after my surgery. I got to a point where my leg was fully healed and I was no longer on any pain medications. If you know Dr. Alber then you know that he will not give you any prescriptions for pain that is not needed. He always would say your leg is doing great and reassured me that I was no longer going to take pain killers. To make a long story short 2 years after the accident I started taking pain killers again and got heavily addicted. This went on for 2 years and I eventually went down to south Florida for treatment. I’m currently still living in Florida and I work with treatment centers to help people who deal with drug addiction.
I visit a chiropractor once a week and I brought up the story of Dr. Alber. He was amazed at everything I had to say about him. He then suggested that I reach out and thank him for everything he has done.
I found the testimonials section on his website and it was on my heart to write about this. Weather anyone gets the chance to read this or not doesn’t matter to me. My only goal was to express all my gratitude toward Dr. Alber. I’m a little over 5 years sober now and looking back I can honestly say that Dr. Alber is so genuine and an absolute perfectionist at what he does. He knew I was the type that was easily addicted and stopped it the minute he knew. Most doctors wouldn’t do that and being in the treatment field I absolutely admire it.
Dr. Alber, I thank you, my family thanks you, and know I will be forever grateful.
