Dr. Jerry Lorio specializes in general orthopedic and joint reconstruction surgery. Dr. Lorio’s professional passion is in the field of patient-specific knee replacement. He has designed a series of techniques and instrumentation to optimize balancing, alignment and rotation using conventional implants. He believes every knee has a unique design, and a knee replacement should model that design. Each patient is provided with a custom knee replacement based on their size, rotation, alignment and deformity. Since implementing this system in 2008, he has seen improved outcomes in motion, stability, return to function, and patient satisfaction. There is also a significant cost savings to the healthcare system, as this technique does not rely on CT, MRI, computer navigation, or custom implants to provide a custom knee replacement. Some of his techniques and instruments have been acquired by a major medical device maker.

Dr. Lorio treats patients in a way he would want a member of his family treated and recognizes that it is a team effort among patient, physician, and the hospital with open lines of communication to achieve the optimal result. His peers enjoy working with him because he “provides a calming presence during difficult surgeries.” Dr. Lorio is board certified by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery and invites his Arkansas Surgical Hospital postoperative patients to call him directly. He is married to A. Lorio, M.D., a part-time anesthesiologist at Arkansas Surgical Hospital. They enjoy the challenge of raising their four children. They are members of Fellowship Bible Church. His hobbies are hunting, fishing, golfing and running.
