Patients deserve the best. This is why Dr. Peter DeNoble, M.D., and Dr. David Ratliff, M.D., together with Dr. Lorraine Stern, M.D., recognized board-certified experts in their field of orthopaedic upper extremity surgery, formed Modern Orthopaedics of New Jersey after nine years in private practice. They bring their expertise in complex orthopaedic surgery of the shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand to this new venture. Our physicians believe that a strong doctor-patient relationship is the foundation of excellent care and that one-on-one education and a tailored treatment plan are at the core of an enhanced patient experience. In other words, we treat the whole person, not just the condition.
