Dr Kocher did a meniscus repair and acl reconstruction (hamstring graft) on my 16 year old daughter 3 weeks ago. She is walking (she has a limp but the surgery was only 3 weeks ago so that is expected) and pain free. God bless this doctor, he did a great job.

Daughter did not have a great consultation with him. Once he determined her ACL was fine, he wasn’t too interested in her knee pain.

Dr. Kocher replaced my 8 year old's torn ACL - we are 1 year out and the results have been nothing short of extraordinary. She has returned to playing sports (skiing, basketball, softball, gymnastics) and you'd never know she tore her ACL. She is experiencing no pain and has full range of motion / full strength. Our research showed Dr. Kocher as a real pioneer in the field of ACL repair in growing children and we're extremely thankful that his results matched what our research showed.

Dr Kocher, not only fixed my daughters knee that had been operated on (unsuccessfully) by others, but restored her confidence We didn’t think she would walk normally without pain, she is now competing at the highest levels. THANK YOU VERY MUCH TO DR KOCHER AND HIS STAFF!!!!!!!

Dr Kocher is amazing! He was able to improve my daughters life with his surgical skills. He was patient, understanding and most importantly extremely competent. He listened and addressed all our concerns. We think he has a magic touch!...he could identify things by just feeling around her knee! He was well worth the wait and I would highly recommend him to everyone, and I do! I can not thank him enough for the incredible surgery that changed my teenager's life!

Dr Kocher needed to repin my daughter's hip after a winter sport accident in Latvia. He did an excellent job and we always felt very confident with him. Thanks to his excellent work, my daughter was able to return to her sport this past season and excel at Junior Nationals.

Dr. Kocher treated me for a torn labral in my hip as well as to remove bone fragments after a fall. He did more than that by reshaping the curve of my hip joint because it was the wrong shape. He did this without telling me it was even a possibility. I have been in severe to moderate pain ever since. I would not recommend him for hips.

Dr. Kocher is excellent at what he does! He operated on my knee and I had a great recovery. His interpersonal skills are fantastic. He knows how to explain something so it is easy to understand. I highly recommend him! My daughter minor has also seen Dr. Kocher and agrees!
