The TEAM to TRUST.

Patients deserve the best, which is why Drs. Peter DeNoble, MD, David Ratliff, MD, and Lorraine Stern, MD created Modern Orthopaedics of New Jersey. Each of our doctors is a recognized board-certified expert in orthopaedic surgery and believes that a strong doctor-patient relationship is the foundation of excellent care.

In other words, we treat the whole person, not just the condition.

As a patient, it’s hard to know who to trust with your care. That’s why at Modern Orthopaedics of New Jersey, from your first phone call until your last visit, our staff and physicians will explain everything and make your experience as easy as possible.

Our patients are family, and we always go the extra mile!

Finally had a chance to mount the office white board! Time to teach!

One of my favorite parts of being a “bone doctor” is treating the kiddos!

They tend to be my most resilient patients, no matter the injury.

This 3-year-old fell off her bed while playing with her brother last weekend, and I reduced and casted her in the ED.

Today I saw her back today for a 1 week follow-up, and she showed up with this perfectly manicured cast!

☑️ Clean 🧼
☑️ Padding intact
☑️ Well-spaced signatures, msgs, and drawings ✍️
☑️ Good color-balance 🌈
☑️ Bones well-aligned 🦴

ROTATOR CUFF REPAIR,
ARTHROSCOPIC @peterdenoblemd
@davidratliffmd

This patient had a high energy injury to his shoulder, and there was a LOT of damage! 😳

Rotator cuff tear (supraspinatus & infraspinatus)

Superior labrum tear

ALL of these BIG tears fixed through VERY SMALL incisions.

MY SHOULDER SCOPE SETUP

Here’s how I set up most of my shoulder arthroscopy cases. This is a quintessential part of making a shoulder scope efficient and reproducible!

1) Position
2) Drape
3) Markout anatomy
4) Markout portals
(TIMEOUT)
5) Scope!

Fun day doing a microsurgery lab with the residents. Teaching and practice with the operative microscope is time well-spent!

The “PIANO-KEY” SIGN

My patient fell onto her right wrist in a store over 2 years ago. She has had persistent right wrist pain and “dorsal instability” of her distal radial-ulnar joint, aka the “DRUJ”, shown here.

The “piano-key sign” is a great diagnostic test to identify this type of DRUJ instability on exam, and even more helpful when compared to the normal opposite wrist. For this patient I recommended trying a wrist widget external brace for support, and if this doesn’t provide her enough relief, we will consider a surgical stabilization procedure.
