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.

I really like Dr Lorei. He always treats me and my daughter with such kindness. He explains everything to me so I understand everything he is saying. I picked the best surgeon for me. I'm very happy with him and I tell everyone I know about him if their looking for a surgeon. I'm also very happy with Temple hospital.

February 10, 2020

I initially went to Dr. Lorei for a second opinion on a possible double hip replacement. He was unrushed, explained his opinion on my condition and what he saw as appropriate treatment for it and answered all of my questions in clear la gauge that was understandable to a layman. the following day I emailed him several questions that I thought of after the appointment and he called me the same day and in the same calm and clear manner. I felt that he was willing to take whatever time was necessary for me to understand all factors that weighed on decisions I had to make with regard to my treatment options. Based on the positive experience I had I with Dr. Lorei in seeking a second opinion, I have decidedto have Dr. Lorei perform the surgery on my hips.
