Feeling very grateful for the arsenal of surgical skills and joint replacement expertise of Dr. Friedrich Boettner and his friendly/attentive office staff and the surgical team at HSS. I’m 44 years old and had outpatient anterior hip arthroplasty x 4 weeks ago, with only a little 2 ½ inch beautiful suture line to show for it. Imagine a life without the drag of deep aching pain of osteoarthritis?! It is so great! I appreciate the doctor’s honesty throughout the process and compassionate and detailed care. Many thanks to Dr. B for giving me my age back!

I highly recommend Dr Boettner. He replaced my right hip 4 years ago and left hip 4 weeks ago. Excellent results, zero complications and quick recovery. Dr Boettner has relaxed, caring manner. You never feel rushed during office visits.

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Boettner, his staff, and the staff at HSS. I had a total knee replacement 4 weeks ago. I'm walking, going up and down stairs and seeing daily progress. The PT is tough, but worth it. Dr. Boettner visited me several times while I was at HSS and took the time to explain everything to me. Great surgeon, great staff, great hospital

Dr Boettner and his team performed an anterior hip replacement procedure. It was masterfully executed to my complete satisfaction. I am 1 month post op and able to move well with out pain on schedule to resume golf, tennis and ice hockey(3 months). I highly recommend Dr Boettner and HSS.

In July 2020, Dr. Boettner did total knee replacement of my right knee. Three of my friends had knee replacements done by Dr Boettner and I had a good idea of what to expect post op. What I found was that my post op was amazingly easier than I could have hoped for. After the first week I could easily get around without the use of crutches or a cane. I can’t thank Dr Boettner enough for his superb skill, kind manner and explicit approach to post op stretches and exercises. Post op PT (exercises & stretching) are challenging but only add to a successful outcome. Life without chronic knee pain is a beautiful thing……Thank you so much !

Dr. Boettner has a conservative approach to post-op treatment. Had total knee replacement 5 weeks ago and was off walker/cane in 1 week. His concern is getting flexibly not strength which will return naturally. Explains all details of surgery and rehab. Highly recommend Dr. Boettner.

In July 2019, Dr. Boettner did a partial replacement of my knees. In July 2020, he did a total replacement of my right hip. Both outcomes were beyond what I could have hoped for. He is an extraordinarily skilled surgeon with a totally reassuring manner. I have total confidence in him and would be pleased to recommend him to family and friends.

I recently had my knee replaced by Dr. Boettner at the Hospital for Special Surgery. It is perfect! Dr. Boettner is highly skilled and at the top of his field. I came to NYC from Florida because he replaced my first knee and everything went amazingly well. The whole procedure ensures a great outcome. The testing, anesthesia, nurses and office staff are top notch! I highly recommend Dr. Boettner!

After two years of conservative approach, we decided to do a bilateral knee replacement, needless to say he is a very skilled surgeon with great bed manners. Very strict on his instructions post op, and he makes sure we follow them. Three weeks after the surgery I was able to walk without any assistance (walker, cane, etc.) Thank you Dr Boettner

Dr. Boettner is not only a brilliant surgeon, but also a caring and concerned physician. He has been treating my knees for 12 years, both with painless injections and now with surgery. His approach is conservative and thoughtful, in planing treatment and in follow up. I recommend him without reservation.

Absolutely amazing experience. The best run medical office I have ever been to. I had a total hip replacement 31 days ago and I am walking with no pain or assistance unlimited distances. Today started stretching and light workouts.

Dr Boettner is an incredible surgeon! I am so glad that I found him and his expertise and I HIGHLY recommend him. The post surgical pain for my left hip replacement was minimal, recovery time was about a month and I expect everything to be completely back to normal in 2 months which is amazing since the recovery time for my right hip replacement, done by another surgeon, was quite painful, involved months of PT and took at least 8 months LONGER to feel normal again. Thank you Dr Boettner!!
