In Memoriam: Dean Lorich, M.D.

Orthopedics This Week—January 18, 2018

Orthopedics This Week featured a tribute to the late revered surgeon Dean G. Lorich, MD.

Dr. Lorich was the associate director of the Orthopedic Trauma Service at HSS, and he was committed to improving the lives of those in need. In the aftermath of the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, Dr. Lorich and a team of HSS healthcare providers rushed to aid victims by performing surgeries.

His longtime colleague David L. Helfet, MD, chief emeritus of the Orthopedic Trauma Service, said "Dean was a superb, well-respected surgeon, teacher, colleague and friend to me and the entire Hospital for Special Surgery and NewYork-Presbyterian community. It is truly a great loss—throughout his 18-year career, he impacted the lives of thousands of patients both near and far. On behalf of the entire Orthopedic Trauma Service, we extend our heartfelt condolences to his family and patients."
