I highly recommend Dr Gil Ortega for orthopedic surgery. I am a pelvic trauma patient who was referred to Dr Ortega upon my being admitted to Scottsdale Osborn Hospital. He not only reconstructed my pelvis, but performed an anterior approach total hip replacement after the necessary healing from the original trauma. He not only performed the surgeries to get me walking normally again, I am back to cycling on a regular basis and completed a 100 mile, single day ride just shy of four years following my original trauma and three and one half years post total hip replacement. He treated me with respect and his technical skills have enabled me to return to my active lifestyle. If you are considering orthopedic surgery, I recommend you schedule an appointment with Dr Gil Ortega!

Like another reviewer, I feel so lucky he was the doctor on call after I shattered my elbow nearly 7 years ago. My injury was complicated because I had something called the “terrible triad,” and it was terrible. Had it not been for Dr. Ortega, I truly don’t think I would have the range of motion I have now. My husband recently told me that the hope was I would be able to comb my hair. Not only can I comb my hair, but I can do push ups! In fact, I have no problems and no pain despite the traumatic injury. I feel that Dr. Ortega really cares about me, not just my injury.
Dr. Ortega is an excellent Doctor. Doctor Ortega has put me together after an horrible accident. He is one of my Angels. I recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Ortega has always taken the time to explain the very difficult procedures I have had to go through in terms I can understand. I’m very grateful that he is the surgeon in charge of my care.

Dr Ortega has been my surgeon on several surgeries so far. Every time I have an appointment the staff is very friendly and professional. Dr Ortega takes time to explain situations so I can understand them in normal language. Before each surgery he comes by and talks to you explaining again what will be happening. I have my 5th surgery scheduled for the 12th of Nov.

He was awesome, I appreciated his time and attention. I look forward to seeing what the results are from my MRI next week!
Dr Ortega, was fantastic from start to finish. I had a severe pelvic injury and have healed 100%.
He continues to be thorough and caring long after the surgery.
I was treated with efficiency and my questions were all answered. I appreciated the care they gave me.
Dr Ortega is brilliant and caring… I’m confident I will get the best care possible.
I have had nothing but good experiences with Dr. Ortega.
Dr Ortega is fantastic/ great bedside manner in the hospital and clinic. Technically skilled and well respected.
Dr Ortega put me back together after major trauma. Having multiple other surgeons look at my injuries no one else could offer me the reconstruction the Dr Ortega performed. I have returned to full function thanks to Dr Ortega. I would not let any other physician operate on me or my family.
Our son had a severe injury that another trauma surgeon (at another trauma hospital) didn’t feel comfortable treating. Our son was transferred to Scottsdale Osborn, after Dr. Ortega agreed to take on the case. Dr. Ortega has been very kind and patient with our son and our family. We don’t know what we would have done without Dr. Ortega and his fantastic assistants (Marc, his P.A., and others). People don’t have the luxury of choosing an orthopaedic surgeon after a traumatic injury ~ we feel very blessed that Dr. Ortega operated on our son. If your are reading this and wondering if your friend or loved one is in good hands or not….trust that he or she is. Dr. Ortega is highly skilled and words could never express how grateful we are that he took on this complex case.
