My experience with Dr. Lauro was very positive. At my first appointment, an X-ray was taken of my right knee. He was thorough in explaining the problem and my options. The surgery was scheduled in a timely manner and had a very successful outcome.

I had a knee replacement surgery on 1-9-2016. I am only 56, but my knee was really bad. Dr. Lauro is a very nice doctor and my surgery went very well.

I went to see Dr. Lauro in June about my right hip. He wanted to perform a full hip replacement(anterior method) ASAP. I decided to wait until after hunting season. I wish I had listened to him. By then I could hardly walk at all or lift anything. I had surgery February 1st and was walking twice the day of surgery, most of the pain was gone and no limp. Within a week I was using a cane only, and after three weeks no cane at all. I highly recommend Dr. Lauro for this procedure! Ken Cogan

I had a partial knee replacement done by Dr. Lauro. Dr. Lauro explained everything very thoroughly. He answered any questions or concerns that I had. The morning of my surgery he also talked with me. During my hospital stay he spoke with me daily and was genuinely concerned about how i was doing and asked if I had any questions.

Visited Dr. Lauro to have my wrist evaluated, was told I would be given a brace to wear and that would be it. After he left the room a woman entered and gave me a brace, put it on for me, and I was on my way. Quick and easy. Ten months later I was billed by Hanger Clinic in Chicago. Turns out this woman was from Hanger, I was never informed I would be charged separate for this nor was I asked if I wanted this brace. Long story short, I was scammed. Well played Dr. Lauro.

Dr. Lauro replaced my hip 7 years ago. His office staff is wonderful to speak with and he takes his time during office visits. Never rushes you through and answers any questions thoroughly and honestly.

Dr. Lauro was wonderful. I had many orthopedics problems that arose from another doctor and Dr. Lauro handle all of them without a problem. It has been a long year but I do not know what I would have done without Dr. Lauro's expertise in his field and his great care the he provided me.

Dr. Lauro just did my left knee on July 2016,,,did my right knee on March of last year. He took great care of me,, I always felt that I could ask him anything and get a direct answer. His staff can't be beat..they are courteous, and always ready to help you with any inquires you might have...What more can you ask for in a doctor. He gave me excellent care.

My son was refered to him for a seperated collarbone. He literally did nothing kept him in a sling no therapy, nothing. My son had years of problems with his shoulder that he just got surgically fixed by another doctor.

Tried to suggest that the majority of my back pain was due to my years of smoking and not the djd and bulging discs. I know you don't like smoking g doc, but wow that's bad! Then I made the mistake of bringing my letter from the other doctors office asking him for a second opinion. He read me the other doctors letter and simply agreed with it, Lazy!!!!!
