Meet Dr. Carolyn Kochert

Dr. Kochert

American Board Of Pain Medicine | American Association of Orthopedic Medicine


Dr. Carolyn Kochert has been empowering her patients to take charge of their health at her Lafayette, Indiana, practice for more than 34 years. Her focus is on helping her patients change from the inside out by providing treatments that help them look, feel, and function at their best.

Dr. Kochert has been drawn to medicine ever since she was a child. She learned from her mother, who believed in the natural treatment of health issues. Dr. Kochert decided to pursue a career helping people and forming patient relationships.

After receiving her medical degree at the Indiana University School of Medicine in Indianapolis, Dr. Kochert interned at St. Vincent Hospital Center, also in Indianapolis.  Then, she completed an Anesthesiology residency at IUMC. After 15 years of practicing Anesthesia, Dr. Kochert decided to focus her medical career on pain therapy, which allowed her to have the direct patient-doctor relationship she craved. She then opened her private practice in 1999.

As a board-certified member of the American Society of Anesthesiologists, American Board of Pain Medicine and the American Association of Orthopedic Medicine, Dr. Kochert stays up-to-date with the latest treatments in her field, especially regenerative procedures, such as stem cell therapy and PRP therapy.  She also maintains staff privileges at Franciscan Health Lafayette East.

Dr. Kochert and her husband Frank are the proud parents of six children, 3 son-in-laws and 5 grandchildren.



"      In April of 2019 I had a TKA as a result of an automobile accident years ago. After recovering from surgery it wasn't long before our greatest fear became a reality.

On July 8, 2019 I went in for an emergency irritation and debridement surgery for my new knee that tested positive for MRSA. As if the surgery alone was not bad enough, I was then sent home with a wound vac and picc line to administer IV antibiotics. Not only did this mean recovering from another major procedure but it also meant lost wages for my family, as I am the sole provider.

Fast forward 6 months and we were back at square one. My leg was swollen to the size of a basketball and I was having to change my wound dressings every few hours due to extreme injection.

After meeting with my surgeon and him confirming what we knew but hoped was not true we were desperate. In our desperation we found Dr. Kochert.

Dr. Kochert provided us with a unique treatment plan that included the Ionic Foot Bath and Infrared cold light therapy. We started these treatments in hopes of avoiding a total two step revision surgery for my artificial knee replacement. After being on IV and oral antiobiotic for 7 months with little improvement I was impressed to see improvement after just TWO treatments with Dr. Kochert and her staff. Dr. Kochert thinks outside of the box and truly has her patients best interest at heart. It is safe to say that without the help and knowledge of Dr. Kochert and her staff I would have ended up having to undergo another surgery.

THANK YOU Dr. Kochert for using your knowledge for such good! You are changing lives and we, as a family, are forever grateful!
