Welcome to Stafford Orthopedics!

Stafford Orthopedics has been serving the Southern Ocean County, New Jersey community for more than 40 years. Located just minutes from Long Beach Island, our physicians and staff maintain an active local presence and commitment to the area. We treat injuries and diseases of bones, muscles, joints, podiatry and peripheral nerves. We care for patients of all ages from infants to the elderly. Whenever appropriate, our philosophy is to try non-surgical forms of treatment first, recommending surgery only if conservative measures fail.

Our Mission

The mission of the physicians and staff at Stafford Orthopedics is to be the premier orthopedic and podiatric practice in Southern Ocean County, New Jersey. Our goal is to provide patients with both courteous and quality professional care. We strive to provide the best orthopedic care that today's technology can offer, treating the whole patient in the context of his or her life and circumstances. We value the doctor-patient relationship, high quality patient service, and accountability of physicians and staff to meet the needs of our patients.

Our Practice

The practice of orthopedics involves the diagnosis and treatment (both surgical and non-surgical) of injuries and diseases affecting the hands, feet, arms, legs, neck and back. Treatment of broken bones is a large part of the practice. Sports medicine and arthritis are two of the most common areas of focus in our practice. Our orthopedic surgeon performs total hip and knee replacements and arthroscopy of the shoulder, knee and ankle. We also treat carpal tunnel syndrome, wrist ganglions and trigger fingers, bunions, hammer toes and ingrown toenails.

Our podiatric specialist provides medical diagnosis and surgical and non-surgical treatment of foot and ankle problems, such as bunions, heel pain, spurs, hammertoes, neuromas, ingrown toenails, warts, corns and calluses as well as the care of sprains, fractures, infections, and injuries of the foot, ankle and heel.
