I was in alot of pain and he was very caring and urgent to get me some relief. He was very easy to understand when explaining the existing problems I had. I highly recommend!
in Kansas City, MO |
Dr. Buchert has always been courteous to me and has taken the time to answer questions if I've had any. He also did my left hip replacement and did an excellent job. Now I'm getting ready to do the right hip.
in Kirksville, MO |
Dr. Buchert saved my life and my leg. I came to him after being in a hospital where I had both knees replaced at same time by 2 different doctors. One leg did fine. The other leg was a horrible nightmare. Thanks to a consulting doctor I was transferred to Dr. Buchert in Columbia, MO. He told my husband he did not know if they could save my life, let alone my leg. I lost my knee but have a great titanium fused leg !! It has been a long process, but I'm very, very grateful to Dr. Buchert.

I had both my hips totally replaced. I was very satisfied with my care from start to finish and I would highly recommend him.
in Rocheport, Mo |
I .gave. had 2 total proceeds done by Dr. Buchert. Both were well done. He is a compassionate man and a great surgeon.
in Hermitage Mo |
Dr. Buchert has been kind and understanding. He explained everything and found the problem with my knee replacement the other doctor who did it missed. So he was able to go in and correct the problems. Which has given me back most (still healing) of my activity level. I highly recommend him.

Excellent care. Thank you!

Dr Buchert scoped my knee 4 months ago. After repeated visits, as I was not improving, I fired him. I went to a knee specialist in St. Louis only to find that I have a hairline fracture in my tibia. Dr Buchert offered no warranty or apology for my 3 months of pain, $10,000 and no cure. I have always heard that Columbia Orthopedic is the gold standard, not in my case.
in Bonnots Mill, MO |
over 3 years ago I had a Bi-Lateral knee surgery by Dr. Buchert. I could not be more pleased. On follow-ups he explained how I was healing and answered all my questions.
in Chillicothe, MO |
not very thorough
in Columbia Mo |
Did not take time to answer questions
