I was looking for a shoulder replacement doctor, not that I wanted surgery. I went to Hackensack Medical Center, the Hospital for Special Surgery and then kept hearing the name of Fred Buechel. I called and was immediately transferred to speak with the manager. She was very friendly and patient answering all my concerns. I made the appointment, booked my surgery and this same woman handled all the details to a "T". My outcome was nothing less than PERFECT. Dr. Buechel is by far the very best, outstanding very skilled surgeon
Dr. Buechel did a total right shoulder replacement on me approximately 30 yeas ago when no one even knew shoulder replacements were possible. The results were exactly as he predicted and lasted for 16 years until a bearing needed to be replaced as expected through normal wear & tear. Second surgery successful and have had full use of my shoulder since initial surgery. Dr. Buechel is one of the best orthopaedic surgeons and is recognized throughout the world as a leading surgeon and creator of new & innovative techniques. Discussed your options in an easy to understand manner and gives you as much time as needed to feel comfortable. Highly recommend !
Dr. Buechel has been my orthopaedic doctor and surgeon for over 10 years. I trust him implicitly. He is very knowledgeable and now he is giving me Ozone Oxygen injections in my knee which is nothing short of amazing! I looked it up online before making my appointment and these injections have no risks - before I couldn't get my steriod injection too regularly because they cause all sorts of havoc to the joint if done regularly. I am so glad that Dr. Buechel is innovative and not only a skilled surgeon but a really nice doctor. I absolutely LOVE his right hand gal - Donna. She's been with him for as long as I've been coming there. There is also Carmella who greets me at the window and she's been there a long time, too. It is so nice to see familiar faces and get A+++ care. I highly recommend.
I don't know where to begin. WONDERFUL office- let's start there. How unusual to call a doctor's office & have someone actually try to guide you, answer questions for a "Potential patient". I had questions about a resurfacing shoulder replacement which I read about and Dr. Buechel's name kept coming up. The staff re-routed my call to the manager - I was surprised she even took the time to speak with me but she was VERY knowledgeable & after speaking with her I booked my consultation. What a NICE DOCTOR !!! OMG ! He gave me a lesson on nutrition since I'm about 60 lbs overweight & it was very nice of him to try to help me because I've tried everything. He addressed ALL my concerns, questions, reviewed my xrays and I was just so impressed with his demeanor, knowledge and CREDENTIALS are off the dial. His name was NOT pronounced the way I thought which I was embarrassed but he was really cool about it. I met the manager and she scheduled my procedure. Everything was so organized, she always took my calls & even called me from her cell on her way home once. I must have called her a million times because I was nervous - this woman is seriously an asset. Everyone is so nice and so busy. This IS the office to go to. I also met Dr. Helbig who handled my post operative care and he was great, as well and I liked his sense of humor.
