Best decision i have made, great doctor. I am not exaggerating when I say that my life has changed. Not only was the surgery a breeze, Dr. Orozco's confidence and demeanor is infectious. I would definitely do it again, and in fact, I am, on my right hip in 6 months!

MyDr. Orozco was fabulous. The hip for replacement was very bad. I am a senior and never had major surgery. Dr. Orozco is confident, skillful and had an excellent bedside manor. After hip surgery I was walking in two hours.The nurses were cheering at the nursing station when I walked down the hall. (Then I realized that my gown was open in the back.) LOL. Seriously, I recommend him highly. I have a new life now. I have no limitations in what I can do and very little pain. It has only been less than two months after my surgery!! Dr. Orozco does Anterior Hip Replacement which is minimally invasive - much faster recuperation. Oh yes, his staff is equally friendly, professional and will do anything to keep you comfortable - very responsive. I even had a private room at AtlantiCare.

I felt positive about Consulting him for a hip replacement after seeing so many positive reviews on vitals.com and healthgrades. HE seemed very nice at first and then his attitude quickly changed once I started asking a few simple questions to make sure I understood the procedure and everything that it would entail. He literally stood up and said " go get some other opinions and I'll be here if you want me to do surgery" His staff is nice BUT He was arrogant and I don't want him touching my hip.

Worst care ever 2 1/2 years later still have the same pain and all he wants to do is prescribe pain meds. He is very charming but I have no confidence in him or Rothman. Find another orthopedist

Dr. Orozco replaced my left knee in 2011. I had great success with this recovery. When it was time to replace my right knee this year, I immediately reached out to Dr. Orozco. He is wonderful with his patients. I have had to wait on some occasions, but I am very pleased with the results of my surgery. I was walking without a walker in 2 weeks. I used the cane for about 2 1/2 weeks. Since then, I have walked without any assistance. I am very pleased with this surgery and my recovery.

Dr Orozco is an excellent Dr. He replaced my rt knee in April 2018. I am now able to get around without a walker or cane. I have been driving. I would highly recommend Dr Orozco to you. Before my surgery, l met him one time and l immediately felt comfortable with him. I had a total Rt Knee replaced and he does it without cutting the muscles and tendons. In my opinion l am recovering a lot quicker. I would definitely recommend him to Family and Friends.

Dr Orozco did both my knees . One in 2014 and the other in 2018. I could not be more satisfied with the results. I have been able to return to all normal activities and also my duties as a volunteer firefighter.

Dr. Orozco operated on both my knees, as I suffer from a autoimmune disease and it the disease caused a lot of arthritis and cartilage deterioration. The hospital staff was extraordinary, along with the hospital cleanliness as well. I am able to continue walking, swimming and working out at my gym. Dr. Orozco is to me a miracle. His bed side manner is like none I have never experienced. He has compassion for what you are experiencing. I have my quality of life back and am forever greatful.
