  • “The experience with Bone and Joint and Dr. Das was absolutely wonderful. The scheduling, actual day of surgery and after care was exceptional. I am so happy with the outcome of my surgery. The follow up appointment and the way that the questions I had were answered were timely and appropriate. Dr. Czajka was also instrumental in treating my injury as he saw me immediately after we arrived back in Albany (from the injury that happened in Aruba). He explained what had occurred and the treatment plan. Both Dr. Das and Dr. Czajka's confidence in my treatment plan was a tremendous help in assuring me that everything would be okay. My only wish is that Bone and Joint would accept Aetna. My employer only offers one type of insurance and this is it. So after hitting my in-network deductible for care in 2016, by choosing Bone and Joint I had a new $4,000 deductible to meet. Aetna steered me to an in-network ortho group, but I preferred to go with Bone and Joint based on your reputation (this was the first surgery of this nature I had ever had). Thank you. I highly recommend this group and the Doctors and team that provided care.”

  • “This was my first visit to The Bone & Joint Center. I was impressed from the start that the appointment was on time, I didn't have to wait. The nurse that took my info and vitals was very pleasant. I had been referred to Dr. Das by a friend and he assured me that I would be pleased with the entire process. I have 2 rotator cuff tears and I was planning on an operation and 3 months of recovery. When I met Dr. Das I was comforted by his voice and knowledge of tears in the shoulder. After he evaluated the MRI, to my surprise, he did not want to operate. He explained that a cortisone shot and a little physical therapy should take care of the tear. And so far he's correct. I'm not 100% yet but each week I'm getting closer. Thank you.”

  • “I've had two great experiences at The Bone & Joint Center. In Sept. 2015 Dr. Das repaired my labral hip tear. Everyone I met on the day of my surgery was really kind. From the moment I walked into the building everyone I saw was very friendly, from the person that registered me, all the nurses and of course Dr. Das as well as the rest of the staff there.  I was also seen by Dr. Iqbal in July, again everyone there was kind, friendly and very professional. I've recommended The Bone & Joint Center as well as the doctors there to many of my friends. Thanks to everyone there, great job!”

  • “I have complete trust in Dr. Shankar Das. He has been my orthopaedist for well over a decade and has never failed me no matter the issue! Most important of all, to me at least as a professional as well, is trust, and in this respect, he has been unfailing and this applies to his staff as well! His administrative assistant, as well as the nurses. One cannot praise all of them any higher. I know if I have a clinical problem, he is MY MAN!”

  • “After a motorcycle accident, I had pain in my hips. It took a few years before they found the labral tear. Dr. Das was recommended by my hip specialist, almost 2hrs away. Dr. Das was able to repair the tear and reshape the ball without cutting any of the labrum. Very little pain within a day and now walking better. I would give him 6 stars out of 5. He is amazing.”

  • “There is not another physician I've EVER seen, irrespective of their specialty that ranks higher, or even near, his degree of knowledge and personality, aka bedside manner! I'd recommend him, and have, immediately for any person I come across in need of his skills. He listens, as most doctors just "hear" you! That's HUGE. He never gives me the impression he's in a hurry or 'wasting' his time. A true asset to this practice. Some of his competitors should learn from this man. Kudos to him, and, of course, his supportive staff!”
