Dr. Lopes performed a major hernia repair for me. He is just a great surgeon, with an excellent bed side manner. Everything that he did to prepare me for the surgery really put my mind at ease. This being my first surgery, I was very apprehensive. Dr. Lopes did such a good of explaining every detail that it helped put my mind at ease. Also, the rest of his team at Overlook Hospital were great. I would highly recommend Dr. Lopes.

So far everythingbad been as expected. Dr Lopes confidence put me at ease in a time of few options. I was very pleased with how thorough he was in not only handling my Laparoscopic Appendectomy, but he also found an inguinal hernia that I came to find out subsequently was a genetic thing in the males in my father's side. From my understanding he noticed it upon going in to do the appendectomy and saved me the double recovery by taking care of everything all at once. His staff...A+++

Dr. Lopes removed my ruptured appendix in a relatively urgent surgery on April 29th. Despite some complications (nothing to do with his skill) he did a great job and my recovery proceeded exactly as he said it would despite my reluctantly following doctor's orders. I highly recommend Dr. Lopes.

About Me

Care Philosophy

As a doctor, I believe first and foremost that taking care of my patients is a privilege. As a surgeon. I feel that it is extremely important to work with patients in a team effort in order to find the best possible treatment, whether it be a surgical or non-surgical option. My goal is to achieve the best results and to minimize postoperative pain through small incision surgery.
