About Frank P. Femino

Drs. Frank Femino and Stephen Ducey, New Jersey Monthly Top Doctors for 11 consecutive years, and Dr. Seth Queler, a New Jersey Monthly Top Doctor for 3 consecutive years, are board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeons. Their practice has been eliminating pain and restoring an active lifestyle to patients for nearly two decades. “We believe in conservative treatment,” Dr. Femino says. When surgery is required, the doctors ensure patients are fully prepared and know what to expect. In addition to eliminating pain, the group strives for excellence and quality and continuously maintains the highest standards of patient care. “There are no shortcuts to quality,” says Dr. Ducey. “We get good outcomes, patient by patient.” “We love what we do and it shows,” says Dr. Queler. “We enjoy helping people.”
