When there is an emergency he will make sure that he fits you into his schedule. Would recommend him and the practice to anyone. ”

  • “Dr. Czajka is a bright, direct, and focused professional who makes sure you clearly understand the issues and the options available in addressing them. If you have done a bit of pre-visit research on your possible issues, this will help promote a two way dialog with Dr. Czajka. Behind his often abrupt and gruff presentation, he, ironically, has an excellent sense of humor and solid depth of character. Overall, a likable fellow.”

  • “I had a Total Hip Replacement May of 2015. As an RN and Retired Nursing Home Administrator, I can say without doubt that Dr. Czajka and his team gave me back my life. I was referred to Dr. Czajka by Dr. Toussaint when I was in so much pain and limping around that I couldn't think straight, unable to get sleep, depressed and litterly afraid to walk that my hip and knee would give out. Surgery and recovery was everything that Dr. Czajka said it would be -- and one year later - it is truly amazing how far I've come and back to doing normal things that a 67 year old lady would be doing! I know that I am going to be faced with having the other hip done in the future and would not hesitate returning to Dr. Czajka for the surgery. I also want to recognize the front office and the billing staff of The Bone & Joint Center - always treated me with respect, courteous, with a smile and so very helpful. You should be advertising that you have 5 star Physicians and staff!”

  • “I had Dr. Czajka to operate on my knee for a total knee replacement. Dr. Czajka really knows what he is doing. I had the operation three years ago and everything with my knee is great. Good job Dr. Czajka. I would recommend Dr. Czajka to everybody.”

  • “Met John socially and was on the fence about hip replacement. After a conversation and an office visit, he put all my concerns to rest and scheduled the operation. Operation was text book, and with the guidance of post surgery care and five weeks of therapy, I was on the golf course, pain free and looking forward to the mobility I had again at work and play. Staff was very helpful. Can't wait to get the other one done.”

  • “I have recurring arthritic pain in my left hip and had a cortisone shot in the summer of 2014. I merely needed a re-assessment and the doctor recommended another shot since it had worked so well. Everything was done smoothly and quickly, and so far, I am pain free.”

  • “Due to knee problems, etc. I have had several surgeries done by Dr. Czajka; total knee replacements, etc. Surgeries went well, without any post-op infections, followed by PT. In 2012, I had a severely fractured femur. Surgery was done by Dr. Bagchi, and then later by Dr. Czajka. I am able to walk some distances, without pain, and can continue to follow daily routines, at age 85. My range of motion is excellent with both knee replacements. I am glad I chose Dr. Czajka and The Bone & Joint Center for my orthopedic care.”

  • “Saw Dr. Czajka due to a sharp pain in my hip. After looking at my X-rays, he determined that my hip joint would need to be replaced sometime in the near future. I received a cortisone shot in September of 2015 which lasted through the winter and into the spring. On March 7th I went to Dr. Czajka to schedule the surgery, which would be scheduled for April 25th. Dr. Czajka told me what to expect and what the surgery would entail. When looking at the x-rays which were roughly a year apart, I could see why I was in such pain. During the process leading up to my surgery, Dr. Czajka told me exactly what would take place and what to expect afterwards. By the time the day of my surgery came around, I was in a great deal of pain and could barely walk into the hospital to be admitted. I have known Dr. Czajka for a long time and have gone to him for other injuries not as major as this one and in each case, have been a lot better after seeing him. Since I have a phobia about needles my biggest fear was getting the IV put in, the part about the surgery itself didn't phase me all that much because I knew I was in very good hands. All my questions were answered before and after my surgery and my recovery is going great! My experience with Dr. Czajka, as always, was EXCELLENT!”

  • “"In December 2015, I mysteriously got a bacterial infection which settled in my left knee. Dr. Czajka performed emergency surgery to cleanse the site and oversaw my hospital stay and recovery while the infection in my knee was being treated. He is a very personable physician with excellent skills and am happy that he was on call the day I was sent to the emergency room for care. I have known Dr. Czajka for over 30 years and he has treated the many injuries for my children, but this is the first time he has treated me. I highly recommend John and The Bone & Joint Center.”

  • “I have many, many experiences with Dr. Czajka treating myself and my family, which includes my husband and our 6 children, my in-laws, and my mother! Each and every time, we received the absolute best care and compassion from Dr. Czajka. Starting with diagnosis, he was comprehensive and caring and was the same continuing with follow through until each issue was resolved/healed! I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Czajka and The Bone & Joint Center for orthopaedic care!”

  • “Having psoriatic arthritis, my left hip became extremely painful and difficult to walk and work. Dr. Czajka did a total hip replacement surgery on me and was back to work and now I walk fully normal with no more pain or limp. I am a before-and-after success for the practice since I also work for the practice and co-workers can attest to how difficult work was prior to surgery. I had no post op pain, no complications, and love every day with this new hip pain free. Dr. Czajka is a wonderful, caring, and skilled surgeon who treated me and my family with nothing but respect.”
