State-of-the-Art, Compassionate Care in Bergen County

Year after year, Kayal Orthopaedic Center is singled out as one of the best facilities for orthopaedic surgery in New Jersey. Its elite team of orthopaedic surgeons consistently wins top rated honors from patients and the medical community. Patients in Bergen County, New Jersey—including Franklin Lakes, Glen Rock, Paramus, Westwood and Ridgewood—choose Kayal Orthopaedic Center for its expertise and compassionate care. Its team specializes in state-of-the-art surgeries, including custom knee replacement, hip replacement and joint replacement. Dr. Kayal and his team offer surgical and nonsurgical treatments for problems such as a rotator cuff tear, tennis elbow, arthritis, bursitis, broken bones, sports injuries and more.

If surgery is necessary, the experts at Kayal Orthopaedic Center use minimally invasive techniques when possible because these procedures offer our patients the best outcomes with the least inconvenience. There are numerous advantages to minimally invasive surgery, including less postoperative pain and reduced scar tissue buildup. The tinier incisions result in smaller scars, minor blood loss and quicker recovery times. Patients who undergo these procedures experience other life-changing benefits, such as pain-free movement, improved joint stability, greater range of motion, speedier return to work and renewed enjoyment of activities. Our team will discuss all of the options, helping patients to make decisions about their treatment that are best for them. We will patiently explain every procedure and answer every question.
