The Bay - A Body In Motion

A Body In Motion


The experts and technology available at the new Human Motion Institute at Raritan Bay Medical  Center will get you back to work, out on the playing field, teeing off at the golf course, down on the floor  playing with your grandchildren, or just doing the things you love.

This unique new program offers a comprehensive continuum of musculoskeletal care through a highly  integrated orthopedic healthcare delivery network. Patients benefit through streamlined access to  education, assessment, treatment and therapy services, as well as preventative services that help them achieve maximum functionality and mobility as quickly and safely as possible.

Using RBMC’s Patient Family Centered Care Model as its model, the “team approach” at the Human Motion Institute combines the clinical excellence of highly trained technicians, skilled surgeons,  interventional pain management physicians, specialist physicians, Magnet status nurses, and other  experienced health care professionals. in a wide range of orthopedic areas. HMI’s clinical professionals  are committed to achieving the highest standards of excellence through diagnostic and treatment  technologies, state-of-the-art medical procedures, rehabilitation and overall patient care.

“We care for you throughout your surgical experience and work together as a team to deliver excellent  service,” says orthopedic and joint replacement surgeon Abdel Masih Bakhos, M.D.

“Thanks to advances in orthopedic care such as hip, knee and shoulder replacement and repair, people  are enjoying longer, more active lives. Our network at HMI brings together a wide range of comprehensive  services and skilled health care providers focused on the prevention and correction of injuries and  disorders of the skeletal system and associated muscles, joints and ligaments,” says Dr. Bakhos.

Fausto J. Ramos, D.P.M., a board-qualified podiatrist and surgical specialist of the foot and ankle, agrees.  “It is extremely beneficial for patients to have all of their care integrated under one roof, so to speak,” says Dr. Ramos. “We are able to track the care of each patient in a very effective, very comprehensive way. Each  patient has special needs, and the HMI takes this into account. A high school athlete with an ankle injury may require podiatric assessment and surgical intervention followed by physical therapy. The diabetic  patient with a foot wound requires very specialized treatment and rehabilitation that takes into account this chronic health condition. Elderly patients require thorough assessment, treatment, and perhaps physical  therapy to improve their balance and range of motion. With our integrated approach, each of these  patients will receive the very best care.”

An alarming number of people are living in pain. A study conducted by the National Center for Health  Statistics in 2006 projected that nearly 800,000 New Jersey residents may be suffering from chronic pain. The Human Motion Institute provides central New Jersey residents with a destination that can help them  improve, says Kashif Siddiqi, M.D., who is board certified in pain management and anesthesiology.



“Pain management takes an interdisciplinary approach,” says Dr. Siddiqi. “Apatient may start with their  family physician, perhaps seeking relief from back pain. Following an MRI or a CAT scan, they may seek  help from a specialist; perhaps initiate physical therapy, use medication to relieve pain. If these therapies  are not successful, the patient will be referred to a pain management specialist. Based on symptoms and  imaging results, we will evaluate if the patient is a candidate for interventional procedures, including joint  injections and epidurals on to spinal cord stimulation and other sophisticated treatments. We work very  collaboratively with each patient and their medical team.”

Douglas Pitchford, M.D., who is also board certified in pain management and anesthesiology, believes in  being an advocate for the patients he cares for at the Human Motion Institute. “Apatient may arrive with an  injury but we also need to take into consideration pre-existing chronic conditions or health issues. Our  HMI team takes the whole patient into consideration. We want our patients to enjoy life. We want to help  them in every way possible. Working together with other health care professionals, we can manage their  pain and get them on the road to recovery as quickly as possible while being thorough and  comprehensive in the care they receive.

You’ll learn more about our new Human Motion Institute in our next issue of The Bay.
