My visit to this facility and Dr. DeBoer especially, was the most positive and informative I've had regarding my knee replacement issues. My surgery eas several years ago but I continued to have problems. After speaking with a friend who had the same issues she highly recommended this facility and Dr. DeBoer especially. I am so glad I took her recommendation.

I am happy and proud to say that Dr. DeBoer is my preferred Orthopedic surgeon who is efficient, skilled and very knowledgeable in his profession whom I recommend to family, friends and also the people I know and who are looking for a Good Doctor for their orthopedic problems.

Great DR. staff was very nice...
in Sparta, TN |
Dr. David DeBoer is probably one of the best orthopedic surgeons in the state of Tennessee. I had my left knee replaced in August of 2015. I breezed through the surgery and the following therapy treatments with unbelievable ease! I cannot say enough about Dr. DeBoer and his associates. I would not take anything for what Dr. DeBoer and his team did for me with my left knee. I am scheduled to have my right knee replaced in a few weeks. So thankful for Dr. DeBoer and his team!
in Gallatin, TN |
If knee joint replacement surgery is in your future, you can count on Dr. David DeBoer to provide outstanding surgical care, recovery support and accessibility when you need him.. I recently had revision surgery on my right knee. This was my third knee surgery performed by Dr. DeBoer. The earlier surgeries lasted 17 years! Way beyond the typical 10 to 12 years expected. Following surgery you are able to reach a highly qualified staff member who will answer any question you may have.

Dr. DeBoer is a highly skilled professional. He replaced my right knee, 3 years ago. Everything went well with no complications and a great group of people took care of me. I am going back to have the left knee replaced.

From start to finish excellent experience!!!!!!!!!
in Rogersville, AL |
Dr. DeBoer recently did a knee replacement for me and I was very pleased with the entire experience. His entire staff worked as a team and their focus was on the well-being of his patients. He took time to deal with my concerns and I was careful to follow the pre-op and post-op recommendations. My pain was minimal and the recovery has gone smoothly.
in kingsport, tn |
Dr Deboer performed my tkr revision and I will always be grateful to him for his expertise that enables me to do almost anything I want to do. If I ever have to have a tkr on my other knee I will make the 5 hr trip to have it performed by Dr Deboer.
in Old Hickory, TN |
I met Dr. David DeBoer in 2004 for hip pain. In 2015 I had my first hip replacement. From the first meeting he gave me plenty of time to ask questions and then explained my options for treatment. He is very patient and kind. I have since had my other hip and both of my knees replaced.. Dr. Deboer and his staff are the best. Virginia
Smiths Grove, KY |
I had my knee replaced by a doctor in Bowling Green. According to him, everything was fine and all he would do was say "it'll get better" for a year. It had continued to get worse from the beginning , so it was time to see a real surgeon who knows what he is doing. Dr. DeBoer was very complete in his examination of the situation. He advised a revision which was done. It has been 6 weeks since the procedure, and it is continuing to improve on a daily basis.I wish I had gone to him originally.

Answered all my questions and took his time explaining the procedure that he would do to replace my knee.
in Scotts Hill,TN |
Dr.DeBoer and his staff was very informative and friendly. They made me comfortable and I felt like they cared about my condition. I am going to have both knees replaced so I talked to several people that had Dr. DeBoer do the surgery and I came to the conclusion to get the best Dr. to do it. That was Dr. DeBoer.

Very very good 'bed side manor'. Very clear, explained opinions and made suggestions. Very pleasant, not rushed.
in Union City, TN |
Dr. DeBoer performed a hip replacement on me two years ago, and I haven't had any trouble with it at all. In fact, I was walking on the beach 6 weeks after the replacement. He is a great doctor, and I would recommend him to anyone looking for great orthopedic care!

I was treated very well by all I came in contact with. Dr. DeBoer listened to my problems and explained the x-rays and plan of treatment. I appreciate the fact he is willing to try conservative treatment first.

I have been well pleased with Dr. DeBore. He takes time with you and explains everything well. I would recommend him highly. .
in Hermitage, TN |
I recently had full, hip replacement surgery with Dr. David DeBoer as the surgeon. The entire process from the initial meeting with Dr, DeBoer to the final meeting and dismissal (six weeks following the surgery) has been excellent. Dr. DeBoer listens to you, answers questions and explains his answers in clear, common language. He takes all the time you need with your appointments. I am extremely pleased with my surgery and highly recommend Dr. David DeBoer with the highest confidence, trust.

I had my initial visit with Dr. DeBoer today. I was seeing him for right knee pain. Fortunately I did not have any serious damage. The office staff was very efficient and friendly. The nursing staff and x-ray technicians were the same. I was seen by both Dr. DeBoer and his PA Brandon McClary. They were both very professional and friendly. I would strongly recommend this doctor and his practice to anyone with a knee issue.
in Lebanon, TN |
In the past seven years I have had six knee surgeries. Five were performed by another group of doctors. October, 2016, Dr DeBoer performed my sixth surgery, another knee replacement and is trying to correct me not having knee caps which were removed by another surgeon. I am still being treated by Dr DeBoer and he states he is with me to the very end and I should be pain free within 9-12 months. States without kneecaps that I have lost 30% of strength.
in Franklin, TN |
Dr D and the whole team at SJRI has given me my life back. I was unable to walk or enjoy life due to pain with limited mobility. My first total hip replacement was in 2005. The second hip was replaced in 2013. I just had a check up and both prosthetics are in excellent shape with the proof of a wonderfully busy life. This practice educates you on your condition and the process you will go through in receiving the replacements. Their physical therapy department is very experienced and equipped.
in Martin, TN |
I would absolutely recommend Dr. DeBoer. He and his staff were very informative and friendly. Heading for hip replacement, I was very nervous about the procedure, but after they explained things to me I felt much more at ease.
in Shelbyville, Tn |
This is my second knee replacement with Dr. DeBoer. Dr. DeBoer and his staff are top notch in their bedside manner, their surgical expertise and after care. Once home I made a couple calls with questions and the staff got back with me the same day answering and helping me. Would highly recommend Dr. DeBoer and his staff. I traveled from Shelbyville to Nashville to have him take care of my knees and feel it was well worth it!
in Orlando, FL |
Waited over an hour and then pa came in and dr never showed up. Walked out.
in Smithville, TN |
I had a very pleasant experience. Everyone was kind, knowledgeable, and helpful. Even though my visit did not indicate I needed a joint replacement, it was good to know the status of my condition.
in Sparta, TN |
Dr DeBoer explains everything to you so it is very easy to understand. He takes the time to answer any questions that you may have and his staff are great also. I highly recommend him
in Mt. Juliet, TN |
This was my first visit with Dr. DeBoer. I found him to be extremely interested in my problem, very thorough in evaluation and explained my situation in a manner I understood. He was in no rush and gave me full opportunity to ask all questions I desired. His intense listening and studying my medical history was most professional and impressive. He and his staff were all extremely courteous, friendly and professional.
Franklin, TN |
Did a R Hip Replacement, My surgery leg that he did is too short. I have had nothing but pain and discomfort since he did my replacement. Worse part, I had no post op care afterward. He ignore me and I had to go to another Orthro to clean up his mess!!!
in TN |
Excellent staff and doctors. Process from registration, to x-rays, to OV with nurse, then PA, then doctor took only an hour with no delays. Smoothest office operation I have ever seen with everyone busy doing their jobs. Dr. DeBoer was very amicable, and fully explained my condition in detail, even drawing diagrams. His plan is to try all options before surgery, and I appreciate that.
