My total hip replacement was very successful with Dr. Bechtold. My recovery was so quick and painless. Friends and family couldn't believe how quickly I recovered.

I'm writing on behalf of my wife who had both knees done by Dr. Bechtold. My wife chose Dr. Bechtold based on recommendations by relatives and friends. We were, and continue to be very impressed with the results. She just completed the one year follow up appointment and things are doing great. Should have probably had surgery done much sooner.

I had a complete hip replacement at the end of November, 2016. The anticipation was the only difficult part of the whole process. Dr. C. Dustin Bechtold, MD was extremely confident in his approach to replacing my hip. The final result was remarkable, I could not believe how quickly I recovered and how painless of a process it was. It is now slightly over 6 week later and I feel great, I walk naturally and without a limp. I highly recommend Dr. C. Dustin Bechtold and his approach!

I am a 58 year old male. Dr. Bechtold replaced my right hip two years ago and my left hip this past October and my results have been nothing short of terrific. Prior to these surgeries, I was in constant pain and my mobility was limited. Now, I can play golf, walk, and really do anything i choose without any pain whatsoever. Dr. Bechtold is a gifted surgeon and I highly recommend him to anyone that is seeking the very best hip replacement outcome.

I suffered a tibial plateau fracture in 2013. Another doctor treated this terrible injury. When he left Sioux Falls, he recommended Dr. Bechtold if I had issures. I saw Dr. Bechtold for knee pain and hip pain in April 2016. I had total knee replacement in the leg of previous injury. Some screws had to be removed so components could be inserted. Difficult procedure. 8 weeks later, I had to have total hip revision (same side) because my previous components had loosed. I am doing great!
in Sioux Falls, SD |
I required a full knee replacement and they scheduled everything pre-op and post-op at times convenient to me. The day of surgery, Dr. Bechtold was on call and an emergency required his expertise. He personally came into my room and gave me the option of waiting until he had completed the emergency or until the next day. His staff kept me comfortable and informed while we waited. The follow-up care in the hospital was excellent! He and his staff are capable, patient, and caring!
in Brandon, SD |
I recently has a total hip replacement. My experience with Dr Bechtold was excellent. He explained the procedure needed, was very patient in answering my questions and was friendly in the process. His nursing staff, physician's assistant, and everyone in both the office and Sanford Health Hospital was very friendly, informative and caring. I was given a spinal block which is what I would suggest for everyone having this procedure. I felt great immediately.
in Bigelow, MN |
Great! I think he's the best! Total new knee went very well. Already have recommended Dr. Bechtold to friends.
in Ashton, IA |
Excellent all around experience. Recovery was awesome.
in Sioux Falls, SD |
DR. Was very concerned with my condition, and his staff were very polite and concerned with my condition. I would recommend DR Bechtold's clinic to anyone that is having hip pain.. The out comes were better than I expected.....keep up the good work.
in Okoboji, IA |
Excellent experience. Very personal and very professional. Starting with the first contact throughout the entire surgery and post I always felt well informed and very comfortable with Dr. Bechtold and the entire staff at Sanford Health. 5 plus stars across the board.
