Ratings for Dr. Brian L. Lohrbach
Just over a year since my bilateral knee replacement and my knees do not bend beyond 95°. They are painful from a minor annoyance to a full on incapacitation. 2nd opinion: I'm "lucky - it could be so much worse". Implants used are over 30 years old - very concerning considering all the advancement in implant technology in that time. Walking, bending, kneeling are all difficult to impossible. Pain management from the beginning was sub-par including an instance where one prescription couldn't be filled by no less than 3 pharmacies because "nobody makes that anymore". Dr. Lohrbach's response to my tearful pleas for help with the pain at my 2 week follow-up was, "Your left knee is slightly worse? Must be because I'm right-handed." Humor? Really? I do NOT recommend Dr. Lohrbach. He's a factory surgeon (get em in, get em out), he has no empathy or bedside manner and his abilities are specious. Any doctor who uses out-dated technology so blatantly should be ashamed.
I had a choice of a well known and respected orthopedic doctor ten minutes from my home or Dr. Lohrbach who was forty-five minutes away. I saw both doctors and choose Dr. Lohrbach. The first doctor would not use the latest anterior hip replacement approach. After only two weeks I am walking with only a cane and zero restrictions. Pain has been minimal and I have been only taking Tylenol. Do your research homework like I did and then make an informed decision. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Lohrbach to anyone. A total professional.
I had simple ankle break. Dr. Lohrbach performed 4 FAILED surgeries. I got a staph infection that destroyed ankle joint. He released me and said there was nothing more he could do. I am now permanently disabled. He was rude and made me feel like it was my fault that the surgeries didn't work. Stay away from him, please!
