Doctor Bodenstab was always concerned about the bend in my knee (it wasn't enough) A pre-existing condition limits my ability to bend; however, it doesn't stop me from doing what I want. My walking has definitely improved after the surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Bodenstab and his team. They are all wonderful!

I've known of Dr. Bodenstab since 1992, I worked down limestone medical center for several years. People coming in and out his office spoke of his kind and caring nature. It wasn't just that I heard he was one of the best in his field and that proved true in the years to come. I referred him to people I knew and family members. I myself just recently went to him and he was the doctor i knew of many years ago. It was a pleasure to see him and everything about his demeanor, professionalism and wisdom was the same. HE'S THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Follow-up from knee replacement surgery. Dr. Bodenstab is a top-notch surgeon who has done 3 knees in our family this far. Went home same day as surgery. Surgery in January. Very good recovery. Now end of March and I'm nearly pain free without any pain meds.

Dr asked investigative questions about my pain stemming back several years. Was knowledgeable of my hip problems and listened patiently. Dr explained clearly what tests and procedures he would use. Although still a “work in progress,” very impressed and hopeful of positive results.

Excellent doctor and really knows his stuff. Seeing him since 2004 with knee debridement after worker's comp injury. In recent years, gotten hyaluronic acid injections which are working great for me. After shoulder problems, I am happily being treated for these by Dr. Bodenstab, also. I trust him completely.
