Welcome to Northern New Jersey Plastic Surgery located in historic Morristown New Jersey! This is home to the private practice of Dr. Albert Ko.
Dr. Ko began his medical career in 2000 at The Cambridge Hospital in Cambridge Massachusetts. There he created and grew a thriving hospital based practice. He was named Chief of the section of Plastic Surgery in his second year of practice. He was also a Clinical Instructor of Surgery for the Harvard Medical School.
In 2008 Dr. Ko and his family relocated to New Jersey where he was raised. He wanted to be closer to his family and his wife’s family who are from Philadelphia.
He is dedicated to his patients and brings years of experience, professionalism and genuine concern to his practice. He believes patient education is so important in order to achieve excellent outcomes. Much time is spent with each patient in one on one consultation with Dr. Ko. He prefers not to use physician extenders (like Physician Assistants or Nurse Practitioners) he wants to meet each person individually and get to know them and their expectations. Since he is in private solo practice he can spend as much time as needed with each patient. This way he can develop a working relationship with every patient. It is through this type of relationship that he feels the best outcomes can be achieved.
It has been almost eight months since you performed the surgery on my back with Dr. Gatto. I want to thank you for the fine job you did with closing the incision, especially removing the bursa. Your professional expertise and compassion as a doctor is outstanding. As a somewhat anxious patient, you were always available to handle any of my concerns without hesitation. I also want to mention how efficient your office staff was when arranging appointments and contacting you throughout post surgery. In addition, meeting with you at your Hackettstown office was greatly appreciated during the healing process. Although I don’t plan to have any surgery in the near future, I would highly recommend you to anyone in need of a plastic surgeon.
I can’t begin to thank you for all you have done. I couldn’t image my face, of all things being in anyone else’s care. I hope you and the ladies in your office enjoy the treats. Also, a special thank you for all the “off duty” calls you took. I hope I wasn’t too big of a pest.
