What People Say About Dr. John Ochsner Jr, MD
RecentMost Helpful

Dr. Ochsner is the best Orthopeadic surgeon in the New Orleans area. Friends told me I should have both of my authoritic knees replaced at the same time, I’d never do the second because recovery from knee surgery is so painful. Dr. Ochsner didn’t recommended doing both at the same rains and I was too scared to do it so I only did one and at a time. The first knee replacement went so well, I couldn’t wait to do the second. I believe it matters who your surgeon is and Dr. Ochsner is the best!

Dr. Ochsner was consulted about a second opinion on decision about whether or not to have knee surgery for my torn meniscus. He advised a more conservative plan and it has worked extremely well. His professionalism and demeanor certainly made me feel that I was getting the best medical care that I could receive. Highly recommend Dr. Ochsner....

Love this doctor and his staff. Growing up I had polio and never had a right hip. In 1990 this doctor built my hip. It is now 2017 I'm 68 years old, have not seen a doctor, since. My hip is still going strong.
