Dr Liechty did S I joint surgery for me in June 2017. . I never dreamed I could ever experience such improvements in stability and reduction in pain. I am still improving. There are not words to adequately describe how much that surgery helped me and how much I appreciate the remarkable difference he has made for me in my life. He is the very best!!

Dr. Liechty, did surgery on my back in 2016. I was doing fine but do to a bad knee I have fallen a couple of times. My last fall being this week 1-8-2019. My lower back and tail bone are hurting. I am afraid I messed something up he had fixed. He is an awesome doctor, I wish he was near me again so I could get his opinion. I said no one would ever touch my back again but him. When I saw him in Thibodeaux .

Seemed to be a great Dr. unfortunantly my back fusion did not take. A year later and I'm worse than I was before surgery. This Dr is overly confident in his work and would never admit to something going wrong.i just wanted my life back and now I'll never be the same. FML??
