Patient Testimonials

Bill M.

Dr. Loren Vorlicky is a great orthopedic surgeon. He also is assisted by a tremendous physician’s assistant, Nathanael Hall, PA-C.

I had a redo of a hip because a minimally invasive surgical technique done elsewhere did not work and came loose. The loose implant caused enormous pain over the course of a year. One year after that surgery, Dr. Vorlicky had to do a complete and total redo of the hip. It was a complicated surgery.

Dr. Vorlicky is compassionate. He is a listener and empathetic and did a fabulous job in the redo of the first surgery. All of my pain, which was significant from the first surgery, is gone. I am very grateful to Dr. Vorlicky for listening and caring and also for doing a fabulous, fabulous job in the second surgery. I so appreciate the way Dr. Vorlicky and Nate have treated me during this entire difficult process. I am very grateful to have had such a great surgeon.

Dr. Vorlicky and his staff are amazing. It’s been eight weeks and my new knee feels great. I am ready to schedule the other knee and I know I will receive outstanding care.

My case was unique. I had had a total knee replacement surgery exactly one month prior to the day I fell and broke my ankle. Dr. Vorlicky’s team got me into surgery within 2 days. The entire team, including those who were part of the surgery, were awesome. They were not only knowledgeable, but treated me with dignity and many smiles. Dr. Vorlicky did an excellent job. My ankle healed well and after 2 years I am moving like a champ! I would recommend Dr. Vorlicky for any Orthopedic work.
