I have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, which is a connective tissue disorder. Dr. Kercher fixed my left shoulder that was previously very poorly done by a different group. He has quite literally changed my life. Hands down he is the best doctor!!

Dr. Kercher was thorough in his assessment of my knees and provided an overview of what options lie ahead. He's friendly, approachable and experienced. I recommend Dr. Kercher to my friends and family!

I dislocated my shoulder five years ago during a seizure. Since that time, it dislocates easily. A month ago it dislocated 6 times in one day. I got right in to see Dr. Kercher. He did and MRI and CT Scan and thoroughly explained my injuries and my surgery options. We opted for the less evasive soft tissue surgery and he performed that surgery and did a great job. I can't describe what a great experience this was in the space provided. Highly recommend!

My son had torn a significant amount of cartilage in his shoulder which was causing pain and periodic dislocation. We chose Dr. Kercher to perform the required surgery due to his expertise in arthroscopic treatment of complex shoulder injuries and could not be more pleased. Everything from the first appointment to the surgery exceed our expectations. We found Dr. Kercher and his staff to be very knowledgable, personable, willing to answer questions and focused on achieving the optimal outcome.
