"I had a complete tear with retraction of the ACL. The first physician told me I needed a TOTAL knee! I got an appointment with Dr. Lorton (quickly) and he said I needed to fix the ACL. There was no evidence of arthritic changes and no bone on bone. He did my surgery and sent me to rehab and I am doing great. I am so glad I went to Dr. Lorton for a second opinion! He did a fantastic job and is very personable, will definitely see him first if I have any other problems and would recommend him to anyone needing Orthopedic care." – Debi B.
