Dr Betcher is a skilled and caring orthopedic surgeon

Dr Betcher took the time to explain my knee issues and why I would need physical therapy before and after surgery to achieve the best possible outcome. He is concerned about the best possible outcome for his patients!

Great doc

ACL repair, the Doc was great with my 23 year old son. Took his time and really listened, didn't make any rash decisions nor promises he couldn't keep. He also explained things and answered all my questions. Fitness seems to be a priority to him so he understood my son wanting to be able to play hard again.

Amazing

A nurse in the emergency room called Dr.Betcher on a Sunday evening on his off time to see if he could see me because my injuries were so extensive. He told me to be in his office at noon the very next day. Well when there with my X-rays and MRI it revealed dislocated knee with torn LCL MCL PCL and fractured tibia plateau. Surgery was scheduled and we were in surgery for 5 hours. I honestly would not be walking or I would have some major problems if the Surgeon that was going to do my surgery that Sunday would have done it. I will not see anyone else!!!

Fantastic Work

I could honestly care less about nice the staff was or how long the wait was. KOC is a big place; waiting is part of it. Dr. Betcher did an ACL reconstruction on me when I was 20. I never wore a brace after surgery and went on to play college basketball. I was faster and stronger after surgery than I was before. I'm 33 now, my knee has held up great, and I have zero issues with it, as long as I'm active. I recommend him to everyone and wouldn't let anyone else operate on me.
