Dr. Boyden is excellence personified. He and his team are so positive, so energizing, and so understanding. I was walking up and down stairs a day after my hip replacement. And best of all, I was back home that day!

A number of years ago I tore knee ligaments in a skiing accident. I did not want surgery and Dr Boyden worked with me and Lisa Cho, physical therapist to build scar tissue and restore function to my knee. After several grueling weeks I returned to Dr Boyden and he said my leg was functioning well. I avoided ligament replacement surgery.

Dr Boyden did a hip replacement for me October 2015, I was going up and down stairs 2 days after surgery. He is a total class act, everything went perfectly, he speaks with you like a friend not a Doctor. I would highly recommend to everyone.
