I needed bilateral carpometacarpal arthroplasty. I had my left hand done first. My incision is very small. I compared it to the same surgery with other people who had different surgeons and it was a huge difference. My pain is nothing compared to before. I am so thankful for Dr. Lechner skills. Planning to get my right hand as soon as possible. I am a RN and I would recommend him with the highest praise.

Fantastic doctor and staff. Most efficient medical facility we've ever visited. Never have to wait. Great success with Carpal tunnel surgery on both hands. Highly recommended!

Dr was very professional and knowledgeable..I don't understand any negative feedback because my husband was treated excellent by md and staff!!

Improperly using a knife (being an idiot), I sliced through my index extensor tendon, a very important muscle if you are a musician and craftsman like me. I was referred to Dr. Lechner by the urgent care, saw him the next morning, and was in surgery the following day. I am very happy with how quickly he scheduled me in, his many periodic check ups have been more than I expected out of a busy man, and I'm very happy with the ongoing care from him, his team, and Jeff, my physical therapist.

If you are looking for a surgeon who comes to your scheduled appointment late, diagnoses you before you completely explain your situation (completely wrong when I got a second opinion, thankfully BEFORE I let him perform surgery on me - only because he takes so much time off and it was impossible to schedule) and backs out of the room as you are still asking questions, then this is your guy.
