Both of my knees were done by Dr. Orem. They are great. He was very professional. My pain levels were far lower for the replacements than a previous repair.

Dr. Orem is an outstanding physician. He is supremely competent, totally engaged with his patients, and meticulous in providing comprehensive information regarding every possible aspect of treatment. He is careful and thoughtful in addressing all patient concerns. Too, he is highly respectful of all his colleagues, an attribute that I found very salutary. Of course, his surgical skills are exemplary: the outcome of my full knee replacement has been flawless.

My operation could not have gone any better. I had an amazing recovery. Dr. Orem and his team were the best. The information about the operation was explained in a caring, thorough way. Availability and caring were evident throughout my time under Dr. Orem's care. The Force program was used to update the team and give me instructions and exercises during my recovery.

I was diagnosed with severe osteoarthritis of my right hip in September 2019. I had done a lot of research and knew i wanted an anterior, not a posterior, approach. As they don’t do this surgery in Brattleboro near where I live I went back to researching physicians and located Dr. Orem at Dartmouth-Hitchcock. I had my first visit with him in late October and was impressed. I had my pre-op on November 20 and the surgery on December 5th. The professionalism of Dr. Orem and his staff, as well as my entire experience with Dartmouth-Hitchcock, was outstanding. These are top notch people and a top notch place. I took advantage of the in-house system called “Force” and reviewed all the videos and followed the instructions they sent me before surgery. Every question was answered and every concern addressed. I put a lot of effort into my physical therapy and followed Orem’s instructions and five weeks later I’m back to all my activities with no restrictions. They get an A+ from me.

I met Dr. Orem in December 2019 to explore my options for severe osteoarthritis of the right knee and hip. I was apprehensive because I knew surgery would be an option. Dr. Orem is an extremely kind and compassionate physician. He reviewed all my xrays in detail while showing me exactly why a knee and hip replacement would be advantageous. I had my knee surgery on February 1st and then my hip this past October. Dr. Orem and his team at DHMC are exceptional, experienced professionals who take exceptional care of their patient. The Force Program is wonderful! Dr. Orem and the team are there for you every step of your recovery! Don't hesitate to visit this surgeon and his team as he will be there for you with a warm smile and great skill!!!

Dr. Orem spent a considerable amount of time with my husband and I answering our questions. He was thorough and courteous. He wanted to be sure all of our questions and or concerns were answered. He and his team treated me with respect and kindness. I would reccomend Dr. Orem and DHMC to everyone I know.

I called Dartmouth-Hitchcock for an assessment of my left hip this past January and was assigned Dr. Orem. How blessed was I! Dr. Orem is a very caring and patient physician. He assessed my x-rays and was very thorough on explaining my situation and options available to me. I scheduled the surgery for May and am sorry I waited until then. I have had no more hip pain since the procedure and 12 weeks later am back to 99% of normal activity. Thank you Dr. Orem and staff, and Force for the therapy videos and info.

I will gladly and highly recommend Dr. Orem as well as Dartmouth-Hitchcock Hospital in Lebanon. They have a group there that does only knee and hip replacements. There is nothing better than experience. Dr. Orem prepared me ahead of time. My stay in the hospital was short and follow up was complete. And I had no pain!

Dr Orem tends to use complex medical language that he breaks down so that it's simple to understand what exactly is happening with your body, and all of your options. He's very available to answer questions via email, and has been able to rearrange his schedule to see me on short notice after a potential problem arose.
