More than 100 physicians from seven established, highly-respected orthopaedic medical practices have joined forces to form Orthopaedics New Jersey, LLC dba ORTHO ALLIANCE NJ, now the largest orthopaedic group practice in New Jersey. ORTHO ALLIANCE NJ will have more than 25 office locations statewide. The seven practices, which will now operate as divisions of ORTHO ALLIANCE NJ, include:
Orthopedic Institute of Central Jersey,
Princeton Orthopaedic Associates,
Ridgewood Orthopedic Group
Shore Orthopaedic University Associates,
Union County Orthopaedic Group, and
University Orthopaedic Associates
“As part of the largest orthopaedic group in the state, ORTHO ALLIANCE NJ’s physicians and staff will provide the same personalized, high-quality care that patients had come to expect from these established practices, but now with greater resources at our disposal,” said ORTHO ALLIANCE NJ President Dr. Stephen Zabinski. “For example, ORTHO ALLIANCE NJ’s world-class physicians are board-certified, board-qualified or fellowship-trained — some are even double-fellowship-trained. Patients will now have access to the top physicians in every orthopaedic subspecialty in New Jersey under the ORTHO ALLIANCE NJ umbrella.”
