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.

very good

April 21, 2021

The doctor did a good job on my right hip, hoping he can do the same for the left one.

April 13, 2021

Dr. Lorei was exceptional, during my knee surgery and follow up.

March 28, 2021

Dr Lorei and his staff are professional and caring people!

March 5, 2021

had a knee replacement, staff and doctor had everything covered from start to finish

March 1, 2021

Dr. Lorei seems to be a great Dr. I felt the communication from Dr. to patient could help bridge my understanding of my condition that brought me to Temple in the first place however I left my appt. feeling empty . I get it they are busy, Please just try to reach out and see me ask how I feel or what can u do for me or listen , just reach out more. Dr. Outside of that I appreciate u and I thank you. for your Service.

This was my first visit with Dr Lorei, It was nice meeting him everything went well.

January 24, 2021

With Dr. Lorei I have never been see at at the appointment time. However this is because he takes all the time necessary with each patient. He does not rush to adhere to the schedule. For him this is a plus because all of us have our questions answered and receive a thorough exam at the visit. Not being seen on time is not a negative here, it enhances the service he provides.

January 19, 2021

It was refreshing to be treated as an individual patient and not as a number as well as black and white typical situation/patient.

January 18, 2021

always a pleasant visit.

January 2, 2021

Dr. Lorei and his staff were excellent.

January 2, 2021

Excellent care.

December 14, 2020

I was on a follow up visit from knee replacement surgery in December 0f 2019 and Dr Lorei did a excellent job in preparing me with the information and time spent in showing me what was about to happen. I need the other knee done but the pandemic is delaying this right now. Scheduled for surgery in November 0f 2021 Lord willing. Office visits were always pleasant because he really showed me he cared and has the gift to do this surgery and I trusted him to do the excellent job he did by the grace of Jesus!

December 2, 2020

Dr. Lorei is one of the few physicians who really listens, asks pertinent questions and suggests seeing another physician if he notes a condition unrelated to office visit. He is my favorite.

November 29, 2020

Doctor Lorei performed my hip replacement, he explained the procedure in great detail. I am having my other hip replaced in April. I referred my sister to Dr. Lorei and after her consultation, she decided to have him perform her knee surgery. He has a comforting and reassuring manner. I'm thankful that I was lucky enough to be referred to him.

November 25, 2020

I was Very Impressed about having 5 x Ray's before meeting the Provider, plus the Time He Took to Examen My Walk n the Exact Place of the Pain, plus Extracted the Fluid and sent it to the Lab also Blood work! LOVED IT!

November 3, 2020

Felt very comfortable and trusting in the staff and doctor

October 24, 2020

This is the first time meeting him.I liked his patience and understanding.He listened to me.

October 19, 2020

l was referred to DR Lorei both by my friend who had the same procedure and my PCP. I must say I will refer this Doctor over and over again. His bedside manner is outstanding, he listened to my concerns and promised that my needs will be met. My pain management ordered by him was excellent making my recovery process tolerable and speedy. I am so impressed and grateful to him and his staff. I am doing very well and recovered.

October 13, 2020

always a pleasant experience.
