Clark Duchene MD
Joint Replacement, Knee, Shoulder, & Sports Medicine
The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Duchene.
“Dr. Duchene is the best. He has all the time for me and the patience. If I need something I can call and I get it right away. Plus he doesn't say surgery right off the bat. He suggest different things or will say lets wait a little while and see what happens, and that is what I like about him he's not right there to do surgery. He is the best and if anyone says that they may need surgery on their knee's, or shoulder, or hip I tell them to go and see Dr. Duchene, because he is the best!”

“Dr Duchene is down to earth....talks in layman terms for people like me that can understand. He really cares and listens to the patients needs. He does push for something for the money, you can hear the concern for the patient, as long as it doesn't endanger the health he will give it a shot. I will and have recommended him Dr Lang and I go back 19 yrs, he gave me a second opinion on my scattered wrist. My mother-in-law now goes to your therapy for both spinal scenosis but also vertigo. I can't say enough good things about both sides and will proudly promote you”

“This was my second appointment at Black Hills Orthopedic & Spine Center for an ongoing shoulder problem.

I liked the detailed explanation of what would be done, where it would be done, aftercare and estimated downtime from my job.”

“Dr. Duchene has done the major joints on my left side and I am totally satisfied with the results. He is very good at explaining the procedures before hand in the office and the day of surgery. He knows my bone and joint problems and I feel he really cares about me, my progress, and what may happen in the future with needing follow up. Dr. Duchene has fixed my knee, shoulder, and hip and I am glad he did all 3. I have a trust in him him for my bones and joints.”
