  • Do I need to pre-medicate before dental or other procedures?
    Dr. Orozco recommends lifetime pre-medications for all dirty procedures including dental, colonoscopies, and ingrown toe nail treatment. We will prescribe you oral antibiotics to take one hour prior to your appointments. You do not need to pre-medicate for biopsies, pap smears, tattoos, piercings, eye surgeries, lab work, or other procedures. If you are having a another major surgery such as another joint replacement or abdominal surgery, you will be given IV antibiotics that will protect you and do not need to take additional oral antibiotics.
  • Why do I need x-rays to see the doctor, even if I have an MRI?
    While an MRI shows advanced images, it is not weightbearing images. Dr. Orozco has special x-rays views that he needs to help guide your treatment. These x-rays are taking standing up so that Dr. Orozco can see how gravity affects your joint space to help determine the extent of your arthritis.
  • Are there any videos of surgery?
    Yes, in the following article there is a link to view a robotic assisted total knee arthroplasty/ replacement surgery. This is from a medical journal that Dr. Orozco collaborated on entitled "Robotic Arm Assisted Total Knee Arthroplasty Workflow Optimization, Operative Times and Learning Curve"
