About Dr. Lorenc
Dr. Lorenc is a board certified, fellowship-trained sports medicine specialist. He performs ultrasound-guided injections to treat a variety of injuries in any joint. Dr. Lorenc is driven to help his patients understand what’s really going on with their condition, and to guide you to the treatment that will best address your needs. His approach to care is to find the most efficient way to treat each patient, and to create a relaxed environment that allows patients to feel comfortable and at ease in his care.
As someone who has always loved learning, Dr. Lorenc keeps himself busy outside of work. He’s often found at a sports practice or game with his children, he enjoys learning to play piano, reading, and he still puts his old art degree to work by doing graphic and digital design as a hobby. He’s a former rugby and roller hockey player, and is hoping to get back into an ice hockey league sooner than later.
Why did you choose to become a physician?
“When I thought about how the body works, and how many intricate pieces have to work together in a certain way to perform even the simplest functions, that really appealed to me. I thought there would always be something to learn, and I’d never be bored. Going into medicine fueled my drive to be constantly learning.”
What’s the most interesting or unusual job you’ve held?
“When I was in my fellowship at the University of Nevada, one of our rotations was working with the Reno Rodeo. I played rugby for 14 years - these guys put rugby players to shame. Some of them don’t even wear helmets. The medical team had to stand right near the chute; we got thrown around a lot too. I also did a rotation at Squaw Valley, where I got my crash course in fracture management. I was treating 15 fractures a day.”
