You have Doctors & Surgeons at large and then within the "Doctor's Ring of
Honor" stands Dr. Mauricio Herrera humble but magnanimous name that is
etched along side the few who honor and respect their profession to the
letter of the word!
You might wait a minute at Dr. Herrera's office but ALL his patients are
given their 15 minutes of fame and by the time you leave all your anguishes
are gone and you have a pristine understanding of what your condition is
including the best approach to your specific needs and your true recovery
time in case of surgery such as in my case.
Due to being a week end warrior, my hip had a bit of work to be done to be
restored to its God intended ways … My surgery was but an ephemeral blip as
an outpatient, however, it was during my physical therapy that I truly
understood how awesome Dr. Herrera's work really was as some of the other
patients with hip surgery of lesser impact within the similar age groups
were faring … as they were in awe at my rate of rehabilitation vs theirs
for which I would proudly quip: " Dr. Herrera was NOT your surgeon and in
there lies the difference!"
Needless to say that everyone one at that physical therapist office were
amazed and took note of his name as Dr. Herrera also specializes in
shoulders and knee!
Ode to Dr. Herrera for his decorum, bedside manner and magnanimous
knowledge of sports medicine!

hired Mauricio as a Doctor in 2010, and hired Mauricio more than once
"After a mountain biking accident I injured my shoulder. I asked my niece
who is an emergency room doctor who she would recommend. She checked with
other doctors and I was given Mauricio's name. His office was an hour away
but I went anyway. Once I went to physical therapy several weeks after the
surgery I discovered just how good the surgery was. In a physical therapy
evaluation they found that I had no problems with range of motion or pain.
Everyone at the physical therapy office asked me what doctor did this
surgery; they were all amazed.
Thanks Dr. Herrera!

I visited Dr. Herrera in hopes that someone could actually tell
me what I had done to my knee. I had seen about six other orthopedists
before I came to him, and they all suggested I have these crazy surgeries.
Thankfully, I didn't listen to any of them. Dr. Herrera took a look at
my MRI (as all the others had done before) and knew exactly what the
problem was. We scheduled my surgery, and I ran my first half marathon in
January of 2012. Thank you, Dr. Herrera once again for bringing me back to
my active lifestyle. I tell everyone I know who has knee problems to go
