Modern Orthopaedics allows their doctors and staff to develop meaningful relationships with their patients, and selects the most modern and cutting-edge treatment plans for their patients.
WAYNE, NJ, September 15, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Orthopaedic surgeons Peter H. DeNoble, MD, David F. Ratliff, MD, and Lorraine C. Stern, MD, of Modern Orthopaedics of New Jersey have been recognized as 2022 Castle Connolly Top Doctors.
All three physicians received the prestigious Top Doctor honor for the first time. Only about 7 percent of the nation's licensed physicians are selected annually as Castle Connolly Top Doctors in their regions for their specialties.
Drs. DeNoble, Ratliff, and Stern are each fellowship trained and board certified, with years of experience in private practice.
Collectively, they offer a variety of non-surgical and surgical interventions — many minimally invasive — to treat the countless musculoskeletal injuries, diseases, and other issues that can affect the hand, wrist, elbow, shoulder, knee, hip, foot, and ankle.
The team cares for both adult and pediatric patients at practice locations in Wayne and Parsippany, and soon at their brand-new Paramus flagship office opening in Spring 2023. They also are on staff at The Valley Hospital, Chilton Medical Center, Saint Clare's Hospital, and St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center.
Modern Orthopaedics of New Jersey is proud to be one of the few remaining independent private practices in New Jersey. This allows their doctors and staff to develop meaningful relationships with their patients, ensuring they never feel rushed or dismissed. They also remain free to select the most modern and cutting-edge treatment plans for their patients.
Top Doctors are nominated by peer physicians and selected by the physician-led Castle Connolly research team.
