“I appreciated Dr. Forbes concern and attentiveness with both my pre-surgical and post surgical procedure. The surgery itself went very well, and recovery is right on track. I'm just waiting for one last follow up visit before we schedule the next hip replacement and anticipate the same great results as the first hip.”

“Dr. Forbes was very much the kind of doctor people need. He has excellent knowledge and a great way to speak and listen to patients. After all, the business end of practices has taken away the true doctor-patient connection with the need to move patients in and out so quickly. Dr. Forbes spent the right amount of time to go over results, findings and to listen to my concerns. Thank you, Dr. Forbes!”

“I was delighted with the efficiency and professionalism of the entire staff at the Sparta office after a thorough examination of my hip pain and viewing the x-rays. It was decided that Anterior Hip Replacement was the way to go. The scheduling, preparation, and operation all went according to schedule, and the rehab was very simple and easy to do. I am now three months post-op, and my hip is 100% functional. Thank you and well done, Dr. Forbes & Staff. This was my second encounter with the Tri-County Orthopedic organization. Seventeen years ago I had,100% successful, shoulder surgery to repair a severed rotor cuff tendon.”

“Dr. Forbes did a much needed revision on my right knee and approximately two weeks after surgery I can tell he did an excellent job already. I’m healing very well with great results. This is my fifth knee surgery and the third on this knee. I can definitely recommend Dr. Forbes for any knee surgery with complete confidence. Dr. Forbes is a great surgeon.”

“I'm a lucky man. I found Dr.Aaron Forbes. I had been hobbling around for the better part of 2 years always thinking my right leg would get better. I finally went to pain management where I got a couple of shots and an x-ray. It was stated that I had a severely arthritic right hip and I should see an orthopedic surgeon. I did my homework and realized that the best orthopedic doctors were at Tri-county. Continuing to do my homework I studied the operation (watched it on YouTube...dont do it if you have a weak stomach) and decided the way to go was the direct anterior method. Luckily I chose Dr. Forbes. I am 72 years old and all I really wanted was to be able to walk without pain, play with the grandchildren, do a little yard work, swing a golf club, walk the dogs. Dr. Forbes looked at my x-ray, said: "you need a new hip." And that was that. I saw much bone on bone x rays on the internet, looked at my x-ray and they were identical. He told me it would be good to lose a little weight and do as much exercise as possible. I did both. My operation was scheduled for Aug 1. I walked into Morristown Memorial in great pain and 1 day later walked out with a cane Had some surgical pain but nothing that Tylenol couldn't handle. I did what Dr. Forbes told me to do. Do a few exercises and walk as much as possible. Everything that he told me would happen did happen exactly the way he said it would. Within 2 weeks I was walking 3 miles a day. He begrudgingly gave me permission to drive as it was the right hip and you have to be careful. After 6 weeks he sent me to Physical Therapy which I thought I could avoid. But he was right. I joke that after 2 PT sessions the only thing that didn't hurt me was my hip. But that went great and I am now through with the PT. I do the exercises given to me daily. I went back to work after a little more than 5 weeks. I probably could have gone earlier but he did not want me to push it. Today I had my appointment with the Doctor. Everything great. I'll see him in a year. Dr. Forbes really gave me my life back and I am forever thankful to him. When it comes time for my knees he will be my surgeon. Now I would like to dispel some other things about Tri-County. I have had 5 visits there. Never was I treated in any way other than respectfully. Never did I have to wait more than 5-10 minutes to get called into the doctor's office. And once there I didn't wait more than 5 minutes for an x-ray or to see the doctor. My primary doctor keeps me waiting longer than that all the time. All the people I dealt with, for ins and paperwork including Martha and Courtney were great. I thank you all...Don't want to do it again in any hurry but it was a great experience.”
