About Me

I don't believe that aging equals pain. There are many simple effective treatments, many of which do not involve surgery, that can eliminate pain for many orthopedic problems.

Third operation for me with Dr Lopez. Very good results in all three cases. Personable and takes the time to explain what’s going on and about to happen. Great staff. Makes the effort to tell and show you what the operation entails before and after. The work in great harmony with my physical therapy group, Cora. The best results can only happen with lots and lots of therapy with people who know what their doing.

Been seeing Dr Lopez since moving to Florida. My arthritic hands have been a pain issue that we've tried to control with injections. We agree that it's time for surgery and I'm confident that he is the right man to give me exceptional results! Wait time in his office sucks and it's a great time to schedule a nap in your day. I've dealt with much better staff but also worse...they have a thankless job that I wouldn't want. Actually looking forward to surgery in a few days with my choice of Docs

I didn't see Dr. Lopez. I saw his assistant and received knee injections from him. I won't know the outcome from the knee injections until six weeks from now. My knee is still in pain.

He listens and does not rush you like many of doctors do these days. His office staff are pleasant. The Brandon office had a long office waiting time. Sun City Center had a very short office wait time.
