Dr. Gokcen's Care Philosophy

My clinical practice is focused on foot and ankle conditions. I am interested in treating common pathologies, such as bunions and hammertoes, but also the more complex conditions, such as total ankle replacement, arthroscopy, and complex foot and ankle reconstructions. In addition, foot and ankle conditions can frequently be treated without surgery, and I am a strong believer in maximizing non-operative treatment before turning to surgery.

    My brother had a fracture on his left toe. He recommended to do surgery & it went on great. He answered each of our questions & concerns about surgery very well. He is nice and explains well about your conditions & treatment plan. He is a top doctor & I definitely recommend to anyone regarding your orthopedic needs.

    In 2014 I had a serious car accident both legs broken and a foot. The surgery was done. In mid 2016 I began experiencing horrible pain from the knee down to the two of one leg . I don't know what happened in the surgery but nobody cares I'm in so much pain everyday I want my leg amputated . I guess Drs just don't care when you don't have $$$ I have to live my life like this so if I try to amputate maybe they'll have to cuz I guess what he dr Gokcen did didn't quit work but nobody can fix it

    I recently broke my ankle in two places and was fortunate enough to have Dr. Gokcen provide the care and surgery. I appreciated Dr. Gokcen's patience with my random questions concerning my care, and being very transparent regarding my potential recovery time. This was a heart-breaking setback for me but being under his care, along with the office staff, made things a little easier for me. I would t recommend having him on your team if you find yourself in need of a caring orthopedic surgeon.

    Had a knee arthroscopy done by this doctor. The initial consult was flawless, the surgery was flawless and no issues after surgery. He explained everything that was going on, and answered all of my questions before and after the procedure. Listens to his patients and is courteous. This doctor knows his stuff and surrounds himself with the best care givers. I would recommend and consider him a Top Doc any time.
