I am a repeat patient of Dr. Rockett (knee and now shoulder). What I love overall is he advocates activity as soon as possible, and empowered me to get on my feet sooner than later. I found the quality of his work to be outstanding, and he really cares. He called me personally after both procedures to check in and offer assistance. Never had a surgeon do so before. Can't recommend a Dr. or a team any higher.

My 17 year old son has played football since third grade. On the two occasions we have needed to consult with Dr. Rockett he and his office have been outstanding. Dr. Rocketts advice and treatment ensured my son was healthy and ready to get back on the field. His office provided prompt appointment options and wait time was minimal. He is a consummate professional. It is indeed a comfort to know that with physically active children Dr. Rockett is there if we need him!

Dr. Rockett repaired a torn labrum in one of my shoulders earlier this year. Overall, I had a great experience working with him. I found him to be knowledgeable and patient with my many questions. He has a background in crossfit and other sports, so he understood my desire to get back to competitive sports soon after my surgery. He set my expectations for rehab realistically, as well. I wouldn't hesitate to work with him again or to recommend him to others.

Dr. Sean Rockett is extremely knowledgeable and was helpful in describing the condition of my shoulder and what would be required to have it feel better again. The surgery he performed on my left shoulder was excellent and the results are beyond what I expected in such a short period of time since the surgery. I thought he was so good I am using Dr. Rockett again to fix my right shoulder next year.

Dr Sean Rockett is a top quality person and one of the best knee doctors in Massachusetts. I really trust and I feel like I'm in the best hands when I have him operate on my knee. I look forward to getting back to doing sports soon due to his expertise and the quality of his work and communication. I've had 5 knee surgeries and he has performed the last 2 and my knee has felt great both times. One was a cleanout back in 2006 when my knee was painful before but not after surgery. The cleanout was for removal of rough areas and the most recent (3 months ago) was an ACL replacement. The knee feels great, no pain, and getting more stable through proper PT and doing the exercises at home daily.

Dr. Rockett has helped me with multiple sport injuries including tendon surgery, broken collar bone, and tendonitis. He has also treated my daughter for a broken wrist. In all cases he was kind, patient, and knowledgeable. He has made it possible for me to continue with my athletic endeavors. I would highly recommend Dr. Rockett to anyone needing an orthopedic specialist.

Dr. Rockett has performed two rotator cuff repairs, a minor hip surgery, and a total hip replacement on me. He has a way of making you feel like there is nothing to be afraid of. I can honestly say the worst part of my hip replacement was the terrible headache I got from lack of caffeine the morning of the surgery. I have found him very accessible (for a surgeon). When I am confused about something, after an appointment (which I sometimes am because we get to laughing so hard about assorted stuff), I'll call his office. He ALWAYS calls me back. He is good with the pain medications, but not reckless. He believes me when I tell him, "If it didn't hurt really bad, I wouldn't be here." The Newton-Wellesley office staff are, without exception, wonderful. No one has ever been rude to me. And Dr. Rockett has only been late once--for my second shoulder surgery--by about 20 minutes. He is often early when I have an appointment in the office. I recommend him without hesitation.

Dr. Rockett performed a Bankart repair on my shoulder. I sought him out as a surgeon (changed my pcp to get the referral) because I knew he was a fellow athlete and would consider my activity level. His diagnosis and treatment were perfect, we tried traditional methods before surgery and he did not waste time once it was established that I did require the procedure. He explained everything to me in great detail. I am five months after the surgery and my quality of life is dramatically improved, I can sleep at night without pain. He is well balanced in the post op approach, I felt that I moved along at the proper pace during the physiotherapy stage and am now back to regular athletic workouts (85% strength, 95% rom). He knew my athletic profile and was neither too conservative or too liberal in getting me back to the gym. Additionally, he was extremely accessible during all phases of my treatment and prepared my expectations accurately. I would highly recommend Dr. Rockett.
