Dr. Couchman replaced my left knee almost three years ago. I have had such good results that I forget my knees altogether. He is a low key man, but knows what he is doing. I now only need to see him every other year.

Surgery did not improve my mobility, in fact, I cannot return to my current job, and need to look for new employment. also looking for a qualified MD to fix what he didn't. Do not recommend.

The first time I met Dr. Couchman I was confined to a wheelchair and was unable to walk. Couchman evaluated my diagnosis and he was confident and very professional. When my surgery date was scheduled. The surgery went extremely well. I had been in a wheelchair for about two or three months, but after Dr. Couchman used his outstanding operative skills. I was able to walk for the first time the day after surgery. When I thought there was no help for me to walk again. Dr.Couchman was heaven sent and he did such skillful surgery on my leg and knee I was so thrilled cause I thought I was going to be in a wheelchair for the rest of my life. I've always had a active full life accompanied by energy. Thanks to Dr. Couchman I was able and still able to walk. I have strongly recommended Dr. Couchman to many people for problems with their knees and being able to walk and the feedback that I recieved from many people that were surprised I was walking again, a copious amount of people have told me that he was the best surgeon. I agree with the them strongly cause he enabled me to not be in a wheelchair anymore. I have nothing but good things to say about Dr. Couchman. I am very pleased that he is my surgeon and Medical doctor. God will always bless him cause he really cares about his patients and is very knowledgeable and professsional at all times.

I went to a second doctor after this one was paid for surgery by both me and my insurance company. Imagine my delight when I was told was told that the MRI showed NO indication of any previous surgery(which explained my Pain) Now what MMmmm?
