My concern after knowing that I was needing a hip replacement was to find the right orthopedic surgeon, and after a while, I found Him, and from the first time I meet Dr. Gilbert Ortega I knew that He was the surgeon I was looking for; He did my surgery successfully, and I feel great from the first day of getting my new hip and I feel it like my original hip. Dr. Ortega is a great surgeon with a very professional and compassionate attitude, and He helps his patients with respect and efficiency
