Advocare 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, peripheral nerves, as well as diabetic wounds and gait conditions. 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.
The mission of the clinicians and staff at Advocare 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 and podiatric care that today's technology can offer, treating the whole patient in the context of his or her life and circumstances. We value the clinician-patient relationship, high quality patient service, and accountability of clinicians and staff to meet the needs of our patients.
The practice of orthopedics involves the diagnosis and treatment 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.
Our podiatric specialist provides medical diagnosis, 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.
The physicians at Advocare Stafford Orthopedics are affiliated primarily with Southern Ocean Medical Center in Manahawkin, NJ. We have the only orthopedist who practices exclusively in Southern Ocean County. We also have surgical privileges at Virtua Memorial Hospital and Memorial Ambulatory Surgical Center in Mt. Holly, NJ.
