When Dr. Spiaggia joined Dr. VanHise, he had the desire to provide patients with the top notch quality non-surgical orthopedic care that was currently only available in large cities.  After hearing the stories that many of his patients relayed regarding the frustration and disappointments that they had received regarding their non-surgical orthopedic care, he began expanding the services of the practice. Dr. Joseph Mejia, DO, FAAPM&R joined Dr. Spiaggia as the Medical Director as the practice grew.  “Creating an integrated model for non-surgical orthopedic care has been an evolutionary and revolutionary endeavor. We designed our facility around the needs of our patients and broadened our expertise by employing only Board Certified and Fellowship trained physicians and therapists”, says Dr. Spiaggia.

Spiaggia further states “We utilize technologically advanced diagnostic testing and therapeutic equipment, allowing us to provide the most successful state-of-the-art, non-surgical treatments available.”

Chaka Ra-Amon had this to say about Performance Rehabilitation & Regenerative Medicine

“For over 3 years I have been searching for help with my knees – I finally found it with Regenerative Medicine at Performance Rehabilitation.”

Dr. Mejia said that Patients have often shared with him that the medical care they received was segmented or incomplete, with limited or no results, despite consulting with many healthcare providers. “Often there is minimal communication and collaboration between their doctors or therapists, and some patients report that they were never even given a diagnosis.”

Performance Rehabilitation & Regenerative Medicine, located in Watchung, NJ, solves these problems. “It is our desire to instill hope and confidence to our patients so that they can return to an active lifestyle, pain free!” said Dr. Mejia.

Reggie P commented

“Tomorrow is my last day of Physical Therapy and it’s bittersweet.  Six months ago I hopped my way into Performance Rehabilitation following Achilles surgery and tomorrow I will be jumping and running out the door.  I would recommend Performance Rehabilitation & Regenerative Medicine over any other facility.”

Today, Performance Rehabilitation & Regenerative Medicine employs 18 full time clinicians and 25 support staff, has expanded from 1000 square feet to over 10,000 square feet and from one physical location to 3, acquiring Chiro+Merge and NJ Spine and Sports Rehabilitation along the way.  Drs. Mejia and Spiaggia believe that this success has been because of the wonderful patients that they have had the honor to care for over the years.
