What People Say About Dr. Shawn Hocker, MD

Dr. Hocker and his excellent staff were extremely helpful to me with my left knee replacement surgery in March 2019. I was very pleased with the results and the good care I got. Dr. Hocker took the time to answer all my questions and was always very pleasant even when I know he was extremely busy. I had my right knee replaced 7 years earlier elsewhere and was pleasantly surprised how much better this left knee surgery went. Much faster recovery and way less pain. Dr. Hocker will be the first surgeon I call in the future!

Dr. Shawn Hocker has been Orthopedic doctor since 2007. Simply put, you won't find a better Orthopedic Surgeon in Wilmington NC anywhere. His knowledge, skill, and superior attitude both in the hospital and at his offices is unmatched. I broke my neck in 3-places and am 70-100% paralyzed from the chest down. I suffered a compete rupture and multiple full thickness tears of my rotator cuff. If you need an orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Hocker is the absolute best. William Sturman ~

Dr Hocker is a caring provider. He took the time to answer all of my questions and concerns while he completed 2 shoulder replacements. From start to finish, he possessed knowledge, expertise, and compassion. I would recommend Dr. Hocker with out a doubt.
