Accustomed to being quite active I was slowed down and in pain when I arrived at SCOI. I previously had X-rays taken which showed considerable arthritis in both knees. I worried that the only remedy for my painful arthritic left knee was surgery. Dr Blecher extracted a significant amount of fluid from my very swollen knee and then injected the first of three hyaluronic doses. It is more than a month since my last injection and I can say that my overall improvement is in the area of 80%. As further advised by Dr. Blecher I will continue to do my part incorporating more strengthening exercises into my regimen and avoiding pounding on the treadmill. I am hopeful that recovery will continue but I am prepared to repeat the procedure if necessary. It was relatively painless in comparison to the constant nagging pain that I was experiencing. Dr. Blecher’s assistants were as friendly and reassuring as he was and my experience at the office was excellent. Thank you!

After doing my own research for pain i was having in myy hip and knee. I came across Dr. Blecher. What i thought was a groin pull and self treatment for months, and little success. Dr. Blecher diagnosed the issues (not groin) and put me on a treatment plan which has been a game changer. I've dealt with some medical professionals in the past where the first discussions after diagnosis is surgery. Dr. Blecher was the opposite...everything but surgery to give relief until all other treatments are exhausted. Very much appreciated. Explains each step, what to expect and why. Couldn't be happier. Great staff and excellent treatment, follow up and care. Dr. Blecher will always be my go to!

I've seen Dr. Blecher for hip, ankle, and shoulder injuries from my mountain biking and snowboarding crashes. He always focuses in on the factual diagnosis, and suggests and performs treatments and/or therapy to get me back in action quickly. I've sent my wife and kids and friends to him too and they are all happy with his friendliness and results.

I had 1 appointment with Dr. Blecher. X-Rays were taken and the Dr. suggested injections or stem cell therapy. I attempted to book an appointment to get injections. I could not get his office on the phone (with multiple attempts) or get a response from several emails. I emailed the Dr. directly through the UCLA portal. He never responded. Heaven help anyone who needs him.
