I have to say that Dr. Barrett and his entire staff are absolutely amazing! He made me feel very confident going in to a full hip replacement. I had zero fear. He and his nurse practitioner Tiffany did a fantastic job on my left hip. It was a rather complicated surgery yet they did it seamlessly. I’m so excited with the results that I can hardly wait to get my right hip done.
Just to put this in context, I am deathly afraid of needles so the fact that I had total trust in Dr. Barrett and his excellent team is a true testament to what a great orthopedic doctor he is. I would highly recommend Dr. Thomas Barrett to anyone. Outstanding!!!
Absolutely one of the best bedside manners I’ve ever experienced!
Dr. Lai is a very honest and respectful doctor. I Just completed my 2nd surgery being discharged shortly having minor pain with minor Pain management.
BTW: Dr. Lai Happy Father’s Day I completely forgot to tell you. You’ve made my son’s Father’s Day special as well. Thanks again for all that you’re doing for myself and others🙏🏾 Have a wonderful day enjoy and be safe!!!
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.

“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.”
