Ratings for Dr. Greg Buchko
Just did an ACL allograph replacement and meniscus repair in my knee and could not be happier. My pain was easily managed after surgery and I was off the prescription pain killers in less than a week. I just had my first follow up physio appointment and I have surpassed the range of movement goals for the first couple weeks already. Very pleased I chose to do the surgery and should be able to play all my sports again! I've also heard from nurses, physiotherapists etc not associated with Dr. Buchko or the Banff Sports Clinic that this is the best place for any orthopedic surgery in the Calgary region.
Dr. Buchko is the man. He has fixed my knee and two shoulders (stabilization). His attitude and skill level are world class. It all starts before surgery with his precise diagnostics and no frills approach to things. He has one goal: to make you function better. During surgery, he works hard and never cuts corners, making sure he properly addresses issues. After surgery, pain levels and functionality have been incredible. I got to watch all three surgeries and his willingness to explain things and ask questions throughout is humbling. As an athlete, I couldn't continue to compete without him.
He did my bunion surgery on both sides of both of my feet. That's right, 4 bunions! He did an incredible job, I literally walked out of the hospital the same day. I'm so grateful that he was able to give me my life back. Before surgery, I stopped all physical activities (which is hard when you live in Banff!) because the pain was unbearable. Thank you so so sooo much for making life enjoyable again!
Knocked it out of the park again. He's the best. He did ACL reconstruction on my right knee 2012 and my left knee 2016. Could not ask for a better surgeon. The wait time was about 6 months from injury. He asked me if I had questions and I said no. Everything was explained perfectly. Doctor Buchko = the man!! Hats off to the supporting staff as well. They treated me like a professial athlete even though I'm just some ski bum who knows better :)
Excellent Doctor, Great Mustache, Very experienced and Knowledgeable. Doesn't talk much though so if you have questions ask or bring them, he will answer them thoroughly, if not, he won't tell you too much but I did a lot of research online so it was all good.
A month ago Dr. Buchko did an anterior stabilization on my right shoulder. I watched the whole surgery on a screen and he always explained what he was doing. It was extremely interesting and instructive. After the surgery I had no pain! I took 1 painkiller the first night (of the 100 that have been prescribed) and didn't need a second one. Dr. Buchko answered all my questions, before, during and after surgery. Very knowledgeable, very friendly, I almost forgot I am going for a surgery! The Banff hospital was great too, all staff was knowledgeable, helpful and friendly!
