About Me
I care deeply about giving each patient a near perfect surgical result as well as lasting durability of their artificial knee or hip. To this end, I use only implants that have the most favorable track records. I also carefully template each and every case weeks ahead of time to ensure that everything one might require is available for the case and that the patient's anatomy and function are optimally restored.

I do not accept payment or "consulting fees" from industry, thus I am able to maintain a high standard of integrity and freedom from corporate bias that is unusual in the Philadelphia marketplace.

    Dr. Lorei got me through a difficult surgery in large part to repair damage from a botched surgery from a different provider. He has been professional, caring and supportive through the surgery and continues to follow up with me. A top surgeon if there ever was one
