About Anthony Costa, MD
Dr. Anthony Costa is a Board-Certified Orthopaedic Surgeon who brings surgical excellence and efficiency with a patient-driven approach to this treatment at Orthocenter. Dr. Costa is a Fellowship trained Total Hip and Kee Replacement Specialist.
Dr. Costa is a Jersey guy. He earned his bachelor’s degree and graduated with honors from Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey. He went on to the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey in Newark for his Medical Degree and stayed there for his Orthopaedic Surgery Residency. Pursuing his desire to specialize, Dr. Costa completed a Fellowship in Adult Orthopaedic Reconstruction at the Florida Orthopaedic Institute in Tampa, FL before moving back to New Jersey to practice near his family.
Dr. Costa is an extremely efficient and precise surgeon with one of the highest volume practices in New Jersey. He performs over 700 total knee and hip replacements a year, placing him in the top 2-3% of Orthopaedic Surgeons in the country.
Dr. Costa specializes in Direct Anterior Hip Replacement and minimally invasive knee replacement. The Direct Anterior Hip Approach is the only true inter-nervous and inter-muscular interval to the hip. As such, less cutting can mean faster mobilization. The same applies to knee replacement. By respecting the soft tissues, mobilization can be faster. Dr. Costa routinely uses Computer Navigation and Robotics to complement his surgical technique.
Dr. Costa sees his responsibility as a surgeon extending beyond the office. Dr. Costa is the Director of the Joint Replacement Center of Excellence at Hackensack Meridian Riverview Medical Center in Red Bank, NJ and frequently lectures about living with arthritis and the treatment options available to those who suffer from this debilitating disease.
Dr. Costa’s approach to treatment is always patient-focused. He understands that surgery, while an incredibly effective tool, isn’t the only option for those looking to decrease pain and get back to enjoying their favorite activities. Dr. Costa respects the opinions and desires of his patients. He believes in using his time with patients to discuss both surgical and conservative treatment options, and to work with them to make decisions that work best for their needs and lifestyle.
