Dr. Rockett treated my son for a shoulder injury. He has great skill and manner. We started conservatively, but ultimately decided on surgery. He was recommended to me by a retired orthopedic surgeon, and I would recommend him highly to anyone--young or old.

Dr. Rockett replaced both of my knees and I am doing very well now. My wife had her hip replaced by him and she is doing very well now, too. I highly recommend him to anybody that needs orthopedic work.

We first met Dr. Rockett when my husband needed a new hip. Shortly thereafter I became Dr. Rockett's patient for a total knee replacement. From the very first appointment we liked Dr. Rockett and found him and his staff to be professional, informative and easy to work with. Both of our surgeries were highly successful. Both my husband and I highly recommend Dr. Rockett if you are considering a new knee or hip...Simply the best!!

Dr. Rockett is a warm, friendly, kind man who is patient and definitely has a sense of humor. He did an amazing job surgically replacing my husbands knee and will soon perform surgery on the other one. We are very grateful to have found Dr. Rockett and would highly recommend him to anyone.

My son had a sports related shoulder injury that required surgery. Dr. Rockett fit us in asap as my son was anxious to have the surgery. Dr. Rockett did a phenomenal job with the surgery and following his plan for post op care, my son was healthy a month and a half ahead of schedule and ready for baseball tryouts. He ended that season being awarded pitcher of the year and even threw a no hitter for his HS team. He feels stronger than ever now. Dr. Rockett is the best!

Outstanding. Dr. Rockett was professional, explained in detail surgical procedure and recovery, and answered any questions. His post surgery appointments were top notch and worked well with PT office.

After a catastrophic fall, I got referred to New England Ortho and Sean Rockett by multiple people. They were able to squeeze me in for a consult and I had surgery 48 hours later! The follow up with PA, and Dr. Rockett has been terrific. Thorough, professional, competent staff able and willing to answer all of my questions. My healing is ahead of schedule, been told by others the incision looks fantastic, couldn't be happier with my choice and since then have found others who felt the same.

I work in Road Construction and injured my knee at work at one of the busiest times of our season. I called Dr. Rockett's office and spoke to Kathy, who was awesome, and got in for an appointment earlier than I ever expected. I met with Dr. Rockett and he discussed the procedure and booked the surgery. Needless to say, the surgery went very well and I only missed a limited time away from work. Thank You Dr. Rockett and Staff!

I was told to come in at 2:45 for an X-ray. I arrived at 2:35. The imaging department then said it would be done in the doctor’s office. So I then went to the office for my 3:00 appointment. I was placed in an exam room. I sat there for over an hour. No one came in to tell me the doctor was running late. Dr. Rockett did apologize when he finally came into the room. A CT scan was to be scheduled. Two weeks later it has not been scheduled. I have gone to another doctor.

It is my pleasure to recommend Dr. Sean Rockett. He repaired a tear in the rotator cuff, removed bursitis and repaired the condition called Frozen Shoulder. I was impressed with his bright, calm demeanor which put me right at ease. I was in a lot of pain and nervous to have surgery and put off dealing with it. Dr Rockett explained so concisely why I had to have the surgery and allowed me to feel confident the end results would be the best decision. It was! He is simply the best. Nancy Keast

Dr. Rockett is an amazing Surgeon! I saw him 2016 for a hip replcmnt. I was terrified but he was calm, caring and gentle (also funny!) I saw surgeons prior but didn't feel comfortable w/ them, (esp. "chief" of Ortho at MGH rude, insulting pompous ___, apparently $ trumps manners with him, a shame. But, Everything happens for a reason, I wouldn't have found Dr. Rockett! Less than a wk after surgery I felt great! 10 wks after I walked in his office wearing high heels! Love him, I HIGHLY recomnd!

I can not say enough about Dr Rockett and his staff, especially Mina his PA. He was able to diagnose and repair my shoulder after two previous surgeries by another doctor. He answered all my questions before and after my surgery and his bedside manner the day of my surgery was more than I could've ever expected, I saw him twice before and twice after my surgery and he called my love one and visited him in the waiting room to let him know I was ok. I have & will continue to recommend Dr Rockett

I came to dr rockett as a 31 yo male for a second opinion because a previous surgeon recommended permanent disability. Not only did Dr Rockett fix me, it actually was an easy experience to deal with. If there was a 6 star option, I'd give him 6 stars. Thank you so much for making me normal again.

Dr. Rockett performed a total hip replacement for me on November 1st, 2016 with outstanding success. I had severe, painful, debilitating, degenerative arthritis in my right hip. For over a year, walking any distance was virtually impossible. Without exaggeration, the replacement restored my normal, active lifestyle and I am very grateful. Though major surgery is never easy, the overall experience was exceptionally positive.

Dr. Rockett performed surgery to repair my broken clavicle as a result of a bicycle crash. His expertise, compassion, and timeliness resulted in an excellent outcome! His demeanor and pre-op discussions put me very much at ease. He was able to schedule my surgery within days of the first consult and answered all my questions without rushing. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing orthopedic services.

I cannot recommend Dr. Rockett any more than I do. The entire experience with him and his staff has been fantastic. I have been working with shoulder pain for many (10+) years. In the past 2, I started CrossFit, but the pain was limiting. Dr Rockett accurately found, during a 2nd opinion, my problems. He performed Distal Clavicle Excision and Biceps Tenodesis. I am healing so well and have returned to sport, which was a main factor in seeing him. He understands athletes. So happy; Great Work!
