Dr. Schoifet’s approach to total joint replacement surgery has helped make the Virtua Joint Replacement Institute become one of the most successful joint replacement programs in the tri-state area.
“Everything we do is with one goal in mind,” he says, “and that’s to help patients get back to their lives sooner. Our patients heal faster because we don’t cut the quadriceps tendon which results in a faster recovery. In fact, some of our patients are able to go home the same day.”
As one of the leading proponents of same-day total knee replacement in the United States, Dr. Schoifet trains orthopedic surgeons from around the world. He has been named as one of the “Top Doctors” in the Philadelphia area by Philadelphia magazine.
Dr. Schoifet grew up in Highland Park, New Jersey. He currently lives in Medford, New Jersey with his wife and three children.
