I highly recommend Dr. Porter, he is an excellent surgeon. To me he is the best in his field of practice.

Dr Porter, is an outstanding surgeon. I have had 2 surgeries (unrelated) and was very impressed with his dedication to my comfort. When it was discovered that I had a fracture, I was immediately told that he would have the surgery scheduled within 2-3 weeks. His staff made all of the arrangements including all my other doctors appointments, testing, and fittings for a back brace. I did not have to make one phone call.

Second surgery for back in 20 years! Dr. Porter was everything I needed. From beginning to end, he showed the utmost care and concern for my pain. 2 months of great pain leading up to operation, pain free 24 hours after operation. His staff at Lancaster Orthopedic Group or L.O.G. Is top notch, no surprises and very knowledgable. I was always kept informed from beginning to end, and he delivered everything he promised!
