TESTIMONIALS

(testimonials will advance automatically after 60 seconds)

  • I began treatment with Dr. Ankamah several months ago. Briefly, I had difficulty walking and my mobility was extremely challenged. Dr. Ankamah began treatment and did not stop until I was mobile, able to walk straight, and was able to sleep all night without interruption by pain. I am truly grateful for his knowledge, professionalism, and determination with being constant in the treatment of his patients. I certainly hope all his patients are as fortunate as I am. Thank you so much Dr. Ankamah.

  • I wish to thank Dr. Ankamah for his focus on alternative approaches to surgery which have made a dramatic difference to the quality of my life since I received my treatment three years ago. When I was directed to arrange for surgery for my severe complete right shoulder rotator cuff tear, I declined to go forward for the surgery. I was referred to Dr. Ankamah and during my first visit, he patiently discussed my diagnosis and alternative non-surgical options. After five weeks of physical therapy with no pain relief, Dr. Ankamah recommended to me to undergo cortisone injection in my right shoulder. I accepted his expert recommendation without question. Most patients require more than one injection. Thanks to Dr. Ankamah’s superb experience and injection techniques, I received only one injection three years ago. Today, I have free range of motion and full strength going into my third year now. I am very grateful to Dr. Ankamah for helping me avoid surgery for my severe shoulder injury.

  • I developed severe elbow pain and I was told it was tennis elbow. After a few visits with Dr. Ankamah, I am now able to resume golfing again. Dr. Ankamah is very compassionate, has great bedside manners, and one of the best doctors I have ever come across.

  • My knee arthritis was at end-stage. It got to a point where I could barely walk. Due to my other medical conditions surgery was not an option for me. I am able to have quality of life again with injections from Dr. Ankamah. Dr. Ankamah is the best!

  • It was a beautiful spring afternoon and I was gardening. I had bent down and felt incredible sharp low back pain. It was so painful I almost cried. My MRI showed that I had developed a serious disc herniation. Treatment of this condition included medications and therapy. Dr. Ankamah told me that for the patients who do not improve with medications and physical therapy, epidural injections or surgery would be the next option. I preferred medication and physical therapy since I wasn’t interested in epidural injections or surgery. Dr. Ankamah was able to treat me and today I have no pain and I am able to enjoy gardening and exercising again. Thanks to Dr. Ankamah and NJSS team.

  • The numbness and tingling in my hands woke me up every single night. I lost the feeling in my hands and started to drop things in the house. When Dr. Ankamah completed the nerve test, he told me I had severe carpal tunnel syndrome. My own reading showed that the majority of people with my severe condition usually needed an operation. However, the doctor was able to treat me successfully without the need of an operation. When a friend of mine who referred me to Dr. Ankamah told me he had a cure for his hand problems, I did not believe at first until all my symptoms disappeared with Dr. Ankamah’s treatment plan. Outstanding results!

  • I was driving on Route 27 when I was hit by a speeding driver who ran a red light. All the ligaments in my right shoulder and rotator cuff were ripped apart. When I saw the orthopedic surgeon he told me I would definitely need surgery. I didn’t want to have an operation despite the seriousness of my injuries. Dr. Ankamah and his team successfully treated me and I was able to avoid the operation. I was able to return to work and also enjoy my sporting activities pain-free again. I am very grateful to Dr. Ankamah and his wonderful NJSS staff.

  • My fibromyalgia was diagnosed late due to the fact that no one believed my symptoms. I kept to myself and was embarrassed to talk about my symptoms to both doctors and friends fearing that they may say it is all in my head. Thank you Dr. Ankamah for giving me my life back.

  • I was a junior in high school and suffered a concussion playing football. After my injury, I moved from one doctor to the next including out of state doctors and I never felt better. None of the multiple medications my doctors gave me helped. My symptoms did not improve and my headaches, lack of concentration, and poor sleep only got worse. My honor roll grades started to drop. I quit school due to my falling grades, daily headaches, and lack of concentration. I was starting to lose hope, until I saw Dr. Ankamah who provided me with compassionate care. Because of him I have improved so much and gone back to school and I’m getting A-grades again. I am looking forward to go to college soon.

  • I had been diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome and nerve damage in my neck and shoulder area. Even though I had received many treatments and been on medications my condition had gotten worse. I was unable to work with my hands, do household chores, or even hold anything with my hands. At night I was unable to sleep from the numbness and tingling in my hands, as well as the discomfort from my neck. I had been to many doctors and I was at the end of my rope. After all the injections, medications and treatments, they insisted on surgery. I had lost hope, I was beginning to prepare myself mentally to undergo surgery. Then something marvelous happened I was referred to Dr. Ankamah. I went to Dr. Ankamah and on my first visit with him he said “This is your last stop, you will not need to get surgery. I am going to help you get better. There is hope for you.” He immediately put me at ease and all my worries were put to rest. My situation was not hopeless, it had a solution. Indeed, after a couple of months under his care I was able to reduce the medication I was on and the numbness and tingling in my hands became nonexistent. He helped me get my life back. I was able to go back to work full time, play with my kids, enjoy my family and life in general. Thank you Dr. Ankamah I really appreciate your dedication and genuine concern
