Pediatric Orthopedic Associates of New Jersey is comprised of nine board-certified, fellowship-trained surgeons: Drs. Samuel Laufer, John Andrew Bowe, Phillip Therrien, David Weisman, Heather Harnly, Thomas McPartland, Stephen Adolfsen, Dominick Tuason and Deidre Bielicka. They care for children and teenagers with routine injuries as well as complex medical and musculoskeletal issues, including scoliosis and spinal deformities, congenital hand and limb differences, hip dysplasia, neuromuscular disorders, sports medicine injuries and fractures.
“As both parents and physicians, we understand the emotional component of caring for children,” Dr. Tuason says. “We strive to treat each child with the same attention and compassion that we’d want for our own children.”
The State’s Most Comprehensive Pediatric Orthopedic Care
The group’s physicians provide both surgical and non-surgical treatments. Each of the practice’s three state-of-the-art offices contains a digital X-ray suite, and the hospital offers cutting-edge tools including intraoperative navigation and three-dimensional imaging. All of the doctors are faculty members in the department of orthopedic surgery at Rutgers/RWJ Medical School.
“There’s no other children’s orthopedic practice in the state of New Jersey that’s as comprehensive as our group,” Dr. Tuason says.
Partnering with Children and Families
The doctors rely on a team-based approach with nurses, anesthesiologists, pharmacists and intensive care doctors to improve patient outcomes during and after surgery at the Bristol Myers Squibb Children’s Hospital. The practice’s transport service allows patients timely access to its Level 1 trauma center from anywhere in the state.
“We treat each patient visit as an opportunity to partner with children and their families,” he says. “It’s so rewarding to see the things that kids can accomplish when they have their problems resolved—and to know we were able to play a role in improving their lives.”
