Dr. Busch and the surgery team
“ I came to Coordinated Health to figure out why my knee was locking up. Physical therapy worked with me to get my leg strong enough for surgery. Dr. Busch performed the operation at the end of October and not two weeks later I'm feeling 100% better . I'm on the road to recovery . The team at the same day surgery center was kind an attentive. They made sure i was comfortable and pain free. Thank you for a wonderful experience. ”

Dr. Busch is the best
“ Dr. Busch is a fantastic doctor. I had a full hip replacement.. The procedure was done professionally and, because of Dr. Busch, I am now pain free and have full range of motion. I should have seen him years earlier. ”
Jim S. from Kempton, Pa
Post Operative Physical Theropy
“ Mark and the team at Scranton Orthopedic Rehabilitation are outstanding. My PhysicalTherapists Joe and Assistant Therapist demonstrate that they care both about me as a person as well as my rehabilitation. And of course Sarah in the front office is ... well... just the best! I could not be happier with the whole staff. One request is to PLEASE add one or two additional bicycles to the equipment. The rehab services are so popular that there is always a wait to use one of the two bicycles. Often my knee stiffens up while I wait and I need to do additional stretching exercises once a bicycle is finally available. Thanks to the Scranton Ortopedic Rehabilitation Team! The Dr. services, and location are not correct. I can not find the Scranton Ortho guys. ”
