Arthritis and Joint Preservation of the Hip and Knee

"Overall, I have had a very positive experience with both doctors and Sports Medicine North! Although my condition is chronic, I feel I am making strides to alleviate the discomfort, and continue what I love to do the most, hike! I have both back, hips, and leg pain, due to both muscular and disc issues. Both Dr. Evans and Dr. Zoric really listened to me. Together, we came up with plans to deal with these issues. Thanks to Sports Medicine North and both doctors, I was able to climb all 48 4,000-foot mountains in New Hampshire!" -- Howard A.

"I performed in my last dance show of my college career this past weekend and it would not have been possible without Dr. Zoric. Last May, I had my torn labrum repaired by Dr. Zoric. Eight months later, I was completely back to dancing and shortly after that, I performed on stage. Thank you, Dr. Zoric!" -- Olivia R.

"When I first met Dr. Ira Evans, I was being cared for by another orthopedic surgeon. I had knee surgery that was fine but continued to have pain, and my activity level was continuing to decrease. Someone suggested I see Dr. Evans, and I have had such better care, and he has made a bad situation so much better. He is not only a fine orthopedic doctor, but a caring person that goes the extra steps to ensure a whole person is cared for! Dr. Evans sent me to see Dr. Zoric, and he has many of the same caring qualities as Dr. Evans.

"I have been very fortunate to have been in the care of several physicians at Sports Medicine North. We continue to refer our friends and family to this group, and all have been happy. My husband and daughter are both physicians, and they agree that my care has been excellent! Thanks for caring." --Annette S.

"I was treated with respect and felt that what I had to offer was important in the decisions that were made for my operation. Dr. Zoric clearly presented and explained what was happening as well as why and how to proceed. I felt confident in his assessment." --Leroy R.

"Dr. Zoric performed a hip and knee arthroscopy on me. He was very informative and always answered my questions in a constructive manner." --Daniel J.

"Dr. Wood did knee replacement 2005 and hip replacement 2012. I couldn’t have asked for better professional care and understanding. Dr. Zoric saw me and recommended hip replacement surgery. He was very professional and took X-rays. Dr. Shore I saw for neck and lower back pain and he recommended physical therapy and I am doing very well. You have a great team of doctors in the practice. I always recommended them to friends who need them." -- Geraldine O.

"My name is Jessica Nagle and I am a 37 years old. My whole life I have played soccer and been an avid runner and into fitness. At times I have pretty much been a dare devil. About 10 years ago I had a hard crash going downhill on my mountain bike. That day I know I hurt my left side of my body but ignored my injuries. I just kept at it, running 10 miles a day, in excruciating pain. I had seen many doctors down on the South Shore where I am originally from. One doctor told me my pain was all in my head, another told me I was being somatic and I was depressed. I felt enough was enough. I fell upon Sports Medicine North. I moved up to the North Shore two years ago. I went to my primary care doctor who felt the problem lied in my back. I got a referral to see Dr. Ozuna originally. He was wonderful. He suggested a cortisone injection, also dye injected into my hip and a MRI to follow. Sure enough it wasn't in my head like other doctors in the past told me. Dr. Ozuna told me I had a labral tear in my left hip and referred me to see Dr. Zoric. From the moment I met Dr. Zoric I felt I was in the best possible hands. This past July, I went to Beverly Hospital and had a left hip labral repair. Dr. Zoric changed my life. I am no longer in pain and my life has gone from giving up, to new hope. I am in training for a fitness competition and back in full force, this time less of a dare devil. I never thought I would be healed from the pain I experienced for 10 years ago. I would say Dr. Zoric is an angel. He is an expert in his field and made me feel like everything was going to be okay. He gave me new hope and for that I am so thankful and grateful to have Dr. Zoric as my doctor. Words really cant express my gratitude. Thank you to all of you at Sports Medicine North, from the girls at the front desk, to the staff of wonderful doctors, and most of all Dr. Zoric for changing my life. I am seven months post operative and feeling free and happy. Thank you all again!!" -- Jessica N.
