in Baldwin, NY |
After interviewing three other Orthopaedic Surgeons, I decided on Friedrich Boettner, MD to do my total hip replacement surgery. When he told me I should have had the surgery done 3 yrs ago and that I had waited for the last possible moment, which he was correct. I was in bad shape. To me, his pinpointing this info on my 1st consult, I knew I had found the right dr for me. Plus he is affiliated with HSS & his bio, experience and patient reviews. Friedrich Boettner, MD has given me back my life.

Excellent physician with strong demand on patient accountability in the healing process
in Lynbrook, NY |
I had 2 THR with Dr. Boettner withing a 4 month period in 2015. I was out for 8-12 weeks each time depending on how quickly I was recovering. Physical therapy is a must for everyone going through this surgery. He is wonderful surgeon , I highly recommend Dr. Boettner, I had pain for years and now I am pain free, I am very happy with results.

Gave good summary of not only the surgery but what to expect on timing of recovery. 12 weeks for full rehab but each week following procedure a marked improvement over the prior.
in Marlboro, NJ |
Prior to surgery, I was using a cane for simple walking, and living on pain meds. i took Dr Boettner's advice to use an anterior approach for my total left hip replacement. The surgery was so successful that i took my last pain pill LESS THAN 24 hours after surgery. I was back to work in 5 weeks. it's now 3 months since my surgery, and I still have taken no pain meds. My before and after condition is a profound difference. Thanx Fritz for truly giving me my mobility and active life back
in Howell, Nj |
Dr. Boettner and his staff were very helpful from the first visit, now through one year post-op for my hip resurfacing. Questions were answered thoroughly, options given, and once surgery was decided, I couldn't have ended up with better people. Dr. Boettner performed the surgery & emphasized I needed to do my part with physical therapy. The end result, I'm back to a very physical job, active lifestyle, and often don't even feel like I had a major surgery.
in Hoboken, NJ |
Dr. Boettner is an excellent surgeon but beyond that he is kind and a good listener. He understands the challenges of post-operative recovery and explains what actions the patient needs to take in order to maximize recovery. I received my new knee in July 2015 and I feel like I received a new life thanks to Dr. Boettner.
in Oneida, NY |
Dr. Boettner just replaced my knee in November. Everything went so well. His office staff is very friendly and made sure all the arrangements were in order for my surgery at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City. From the moment they wheeled me into the operating room, his team made sure I had as good an experience as possible. I was up and walking well the first day. After one month I could bend and straighten really well. Dr. Boettner is a great choice for a knee replacement!
in Ft Lee, NJ |
Dr. Boettner totally replaced my left hip in 2008. It is pain-free and strong. In a recent consultation with him, I was reminded of the kindness, patience, and careful consideration of the patient’s concerns and questions that he brings to his excellent practice of surgery. In my case I had a “bonus” – in pre-testing, he found a serious tumor, unrelated to my hip. After its removal, i returned to Dr. Boettner for hip surgery. I think he is an exemplary surgeon. And he has a fine staff.

Dr. Boettner performed a total knee replacement for me. He is an impressively skilled doctor at a fantastic hospital. Dr. Boettner is fun to spend time with, and preparation and follow-up were first-rate. It's amazing looking at my knee, and realizing all that happened there - the incision scar is very modest. I know not everyone can expect this, given the age of the patient, but I am 62, and was up and about in 2-3 weeks. I never needed a walker.
in Holtsville, NY |
Found the entire experience wonderful.Dr, Boettner was personal and made me feel. confident and at ease with the whole procedure.Before surgery i was always in pain and unable to walk ,go up stairs and even get a full night sleep without much difficulty... 3 weeks .after surgery I was able to return to work and had no pain ,no more motrin and could easily walk up and down stairs. Iwould highly recommend Dr,Boettner and feel he is very professional.
in Hopewell, New Jersey |
Dr. Boettner performed a full hip replacement on my left hip over 5 years ago and I couldn't be happier with the result - both at the time of the surgery as well as 5 years later. I would (and have) recommended friends or family to Dr. Boettner. He is very professional but also very concerned and interested in the well being of the patient. I interviewed three other doctors at the time and felt he was the best combination of experience and competence as well as pleasant and caring concern.
in Montclair, NJ |
Dr. Boettner is masterful at his practice. After several years of continuous and severe pain I consulted with him. Her performed a posterior hip replacement and I am now, seven weeks after surgery virtually pain free and able to carry out all activities of daily living. Dr. Boettner listened to my concerns, told me exactly what to expect, and provided me with an excellent surgical experience and outcome. I highly recommend Dr. Boettner.
He was very professional in explaining to me the outcome of my knee replacement. Although the rehab has been tougher than expected I now see the light at the end of the tunnel. It has been 8 weeks and I am already riding my bike in the basement (on trainer). I feel that within a month I will be very close to doing the activities I was hoping to be able to do. The experience in the hospital for special surgery was as expected top notch. I have nothing but praise for Dr. Boettner and his staff
in Brooklyn, NY |
Dr Boettner performed a double hip replacement on me and my life has been profoundly changed. I can walk, dance, exercise and generally live a really active life again. I have been thrilled. Dr. Boettner is so skilled and accomplished that I have only felt successful since my surgery. And last, but no least living with absolutely no pain is a joy.
in New York, NY |
Back in the the game!!! and better than ever thanks God first and this amazing doctor. Almost 2 years of a Double Hip Replacement and I am pain free 100% and more active than ever.... Excellent professional!!!!! I never imaging that even thought I was super overweight, He was able to do my double hip replacement perfectly done.
in Astoria, NY |
Last month I had a one-year check-up with Dr. Friedrich Boettner, an orthopedic surgeon, at the Hospital For Special Surgery. He performed Unicondylar/Partial Knee Replacement on my knees. It took some persuasion on my part to convince him to do the surgery on both my knees at the same time, as I was 84 years of age. It was the best decision I could have made, as the surgery was extremely successful. I was able to return home from Burke Rehab and walk without a walker or a cane. Part 1

I want to thank you for giving me my life back. Two years ago I was in the best shape of my life. Unfortunately it came to an end due to bad pain in the groin area. When I was told I needed a double hip replacement I never thought I could kickbox again. To my surprise I was hitting the bag three months after my right hip was replaced. One year later you replaced my left hip and 6 weeks post op I await my return to the gym. I am the bionic women and nothing can stop me now. Thank you again!
