Dr. Rothrock is a native of Clay Center, NE and joined Orthopedic Institute in 2009. Prior to that, his training took him across the United States. He completed his residency in Orlando, FL, where he gained extensive experience in care of the trauma patient, including operative experience with pelvic and acetabular surgery. He then moved to New York where he completed a year of subspecialty training in musculoskeletal oncology and he became an expert in limb salvage surgery and adept at tumor resection. He practiced in Louisville, KY before returning to the Midwest to be close to family.
Dr. Rothrock is an expert in hip and knee joint reconstruction and revision surgery, minimally invasive direct anterior hip replacement, pelvic and extremity trauma, and arthroscopic surgery. He was the first doctor in this region to introduce the anterior “from the front” hip replacement surgery to patients.
As a board certified orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Rothrock is adamant about not setting limitations for his patients. “The sky is the limit for what patients can do and accomplish after surgery. It is my duty and my passion to give every opportunity to make whatever their goals are a reality. That is why I continue to search for less invasive ways to perform surgery and speed recovery.”
When Dr. Rothrock isn’t taking care of his patients, he enjoys hunting, especially big game, and spending time with his family.
Get to know Dr. Rothrock
I went to Dr. Rothrock 8 years ago and had a total hip replacement. I was back to work full time on my 4th week!! Up and down on the floor teaching kids. He is personable, has a sense of humor, plus he is tops in his field!!! He is never pushy, cares about his patients and always has options for you.
Dr Corey Rothrock is the best! I have struggled with lots of pain in my hips and legs. After many visits with other doctors who were trying to treat the pain and not the problem, I finally found Dr Corey Rothrock! He went right to work and replaced the left hip in November and the right hip in February (he fixed the problem!) His procedure for hip replacement is quick with a fast recovery (4 weeks off work). Thank you Dr. Corey Rothrock!
Doctor Rothrock was just who I needed. He answered all my questions before surgery and I felt secure and comfortable with him. I really enjoyed seeing him the next morning, which was unexpected considering he has a busy schedule. It made me feel good he stopped by. I’m doing good and improving daily.
After hearing many positive reviews from others, I made an appointment with Dr. Rothrock. I was not disappointed! He was everything that the reviews had said– punctual, compassionate, knowledgeable, and patient. When the time comes that you are tired of battling the pain and limiting your life because of it, consult with Dr. Rothrock. He will provide you with the options available to you and let you make the choice that will be of most benefit.
Dr. Rothrock spent the right amount of time with me, reviewed my history and records, and to my surprise, I did not need hip replacement surgery (yet). He simply prescribed an anti-inflammatory/pain reliever (which has worked GREAT thus far). I was very pleased with his thoroughness, yet brevity, in explaining things in layman’s terms and sufficient detail for me to understand.
