Ortho Alliance NJ is comprised of the following practices: Brielle Orthopedics, Orthopedic Institute of Central Jersey, Princeton Orthopaedic Associates, Ridgewood Orthopedic Group, Shore Orthopaedic University Associates, Union County Orthopaedic Group, and University Orthopaedic Associates. Each practice is now a division of Ortho Alliance NJ.
The new orthopedic group has more than 25 office locations and over 100 physicians throughout the state of New Jersey. The transition should be easy for patients because Ortho Alliance NJ physicians are keeping their existing contact information and office locations.
Ortho Alliance NJ physicians are all board certified, board qualified, or fellowship-trained specialists. Together, the group offers the full spectrum of orthopedic care. This includes the following specialties: general orthopedics, adolescent care, pediatric care, foot, ankle, hand, wrist, hip, knee, pain management, physical therapy, occupational therapy, shoulder, elbow, spine, back, neck, sports medicine, total joint replacement, trauma care, and fracture care.
Ortho Alliance NJ Chairman Jeffrey Bechler M.D., a board certified orthopedic surgeon, told OTW, “The seven groups comprising Ortho Alliance NJ came together with a shared vision for how we wanted to practice medicine from both cultural and clinical standpoints. Specifically, we are all deeply committed to providing the level of personalized patient care more commonly associated with private practices that are independent of a large hospital, healthcare system or even private equity. As clinicians in one of the country’s most competitive healthcare markets, we also appreciate the value of sharing best practices, research and expertise with each other.”
Dr. Bechler continued, “Now, as part of Ortho Alliance NJ, we can continue investing in the latest technologies and most advanced treatments while also having greater impact in negotiating with payors, on behalf of our patients. In short, the power of the alliance enables our physicians to provide the most advanced and cost-effective orthopedic care for our patients.”
