Dr. Orozco is thorough and efficient, showing a great attention to detail. His friendly demeanor and willingness to answer questions helps to put the patient at ease.

What a great doctor! He is kind personable human being. He never rushes you answers your questions thoroughly. His operation transformed my entire life. Several doctors refused to replace my knee because of my lymphedemia but he did it and I was driving 10 days later. I still can't believe how well I'm doing I can and do walk miles even in very hilly Maine. I recommend him to everyone. Alice Maniaci

Wonderful skillful warm physician. Very straight forward and answers all questions. Had both knees replaced in November, up dancing at Christmas. Knees are bionic!!

Staff has been great explaining the steps from pre to post surgical procedures and treatment I am five days from surgery, off all heavy pain meditations, walking and doing simple chores around the house. Things are going better than I could have imagined!

in Jackson, NJ |
Dr. Orozco is a fantastic surgeon. Did replacement surgery on both my hips and I am getting around now without even thinking of the old pain prior to surgery. A very personable Doctor. The whole team in the office is very professional and easy to work with. Highly recommend Dr. Orozco .

This man knows his hips.
in Whiting, NJ |
Dr. Orozco is a fabulous person and an even better surgeon. I was so afraid of my knee replacement surgery and he did such a wonderful job. I walked without a walker or cane the very next day. Having the other knee done 8/24 and hope for the same results. Thank You Dr. Orozco
in Barnegat, NJ |
Have been with him for years now, after replacing both knees. He gets a 5 star in every aspect of his service. Excellent surgeon, caring, compassionate, understanding. I could go on but I wont. Because of his meticulous surgery, my recovery was amazing and I was without assistance in walking within 2 to 3 weeks. Thank you for everything. Would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Orozco to anyone.
Philadelphia, PA |
Can't say enough good about Dr. Orozco and his staff!
Three knee surgeries in 17 months, and not being able to walk correctly is my cause for concern. Not being listened to as to what is going on with my knee, he has his own conclusions and that is that. I had 2nd opinion and test to confirm a major problem, that lead to 3rd surgery, ( which He also did ) after being told there was nothing wrong. I'm sorry I let him do it. Now still being told nothing is wrong, I'm tired of the pain.
Dear Patient, We would love the chance to speak with you directly to discuss your concerns in further detail. If interested, please contact us at 267-339-3689. Sincerely, Rothman Institute

Dr. Orozco changed my life through his medical expertise and his caring and compassion. When i first came in, i was in severe pain and very frustrated that no one could help me with my knee problems. Dr. Orzozco gave me a partial knee replacement, but more importantly he gave me my life back. I am extremely active and now i can work out regularly. My quality of life and my joy came back, and it is thanks to Dr Orozco and the wonderful team at the Rothman Instiutute!

caring, understanding, and very concerned are qualities you very seldom see in a doctor, now a days. But DR. Orozco exhibits these qualities to the max. Amazing respect for his patients, and an uncanny way of making one's anxieties and concerns of having surgery,disappear. I had a total hip replacement done , 3 weeks ago, and have experienced very little pain from the surgery, and have begun to do things physically, that I couldbarely do for the longest time. Fabulous 'Fab' Orozco-none better.
in Toms River, NJ |
Bilateral knee replacement at 53. 2 nights in hospital. Six weeks of rehab. Back to gym in 5 weeks; work in 6 weeks. Complete and total recovery. Back to running and all other sports. Great bedside manner. My Mom just had 2nd hip replaced and complete return to all previous activities. Recommended him to numerous other patients who had same excellent experience.
in Forked River, NJ |
Had total hip on Dec., 8,2016. Excellent Doctor, fantastic bedside manner, easy to talk with and ask questions. Treats his patients with respect as if his own family. Dr. Orozco recommended weight loss prior to surgery as to get best outcomes and long term benefits, some md's would just do the surgery but this MD wants great success. I highly recommend this physician and I am picky because of being a nurse x 36 years. If you want a good doctor choice Dr. Fabio Orozco for the job!

Took care of me from day one

i had both my knees replaced at the same time by Dr. orozco, my surgery could not have gone better . the rehab plan i followed that the rothman group provided got me back in my gym at boot camp and weight lifting in 8 weeks time. I can't say enough about the skill and care i recieved . Dr Orozco treats you like family and not a patient . i had surgery to repair a torn bicep tendon done by Dr. Lutsky of rothman before this operation. you are trated as a person not a number at Rothman.

Dr. Orozco is friendly and encouraging with a positive attitude! He explains procedures and answers questions with a smile. He replaced my husbands right knee approximately 5 years ago, and replaced my left hip 6 months ago. Neither of us experienced any problems or difficulties, and we were up and back to normal activity, pain free, in no time! Actually my husband was back to skiing in 3 months after his surgery!!! His staff is also friendly and answers questions in a timely manner.

I highly recommend Dr. O. I had my knee replaced by him 3 years ago. He was cheerful, positive, kind and full of hugs. He is a very genuine person. Honest, encouraging, supportive, Dr. O makes sure you have anything and everything you need to recover as quickly as possible. My replaced knee hasn't given me ANY problems whatsoever. If I ever need my other knee done, I wouldn't go to anyone but Dr. O. He is unbelievable!!
