Dr. Boettner is an outstanding surgeon and I highly recommend him. When I first came to see him in 2018 I could barely walk my hip was so painful and deteriorated. Now I can move easily and freely. I can engage in all of the acitivies I love to do, especially skiing which I thought I would never be able to do again. He is kind, compassionate and has a great sense of humor too. I can't thank him enough for my amazing, perfect new hip!

Besides being a superbly skilled surgeon, Dr. Boettner is kind and compassionate. He will answer all your questions and wants to be sure you are comfortable and confident for any prescribed procedure. Could not recommend Dr. Boettner more highly.

Finally got around to the "right time" to have my hip fixed. Dr Boettner did an awesome job on my left hip resurface. While I have often found specialists to be lacking in their bedside manner, Dr Boettner was as good as it gets. His PA on the other hand could use some work. Since we're being honest:) Looking forward to getting my 1 year update, releasing me to my own devices. The entire HSS experience (with exception noted above) was AMAZING! It was more than worth the headache of interstate travel.

Had my 1 year visit with Dr. Boettner. Everything is perfect. Walking normal and no pain. Really a great guy and never rushes you at all in exam room. He is a godsend to me. I was living with so much hip pain over a year ago with a cane to walk and now its pain free. If my other hip goes I will only have him replace it. Thank you.

Dr Boettner is an excellent surgeon . He is kind compassionate and knows what he is doing. After 10 years of pain I now feel great. I highly recommend Dr. Boettner and I am so glad I had my total hip replacement done. It was worth the trip into New York City from southern New Jersey. The Hospital for Special Surgery and Dr. Boettner were the best choices for me!

Dr Boettner is without a doubt one of the most highly skilled surgeons anywhere. Had my hip replaced, was walking a few hours after the surgery and have been little or pain free ever since. The worst part of the surgery was the ride home for over an hour the next day. Bottom line Dr. Boettner is one of the top surgeons and I couldn’t be any happier.

Dr. Freidrich Boettner & Hospital for Special Surgery are the “A” team when considering total joint replacements of knee and hip. Covid & fear of surgery were responsible for my reluctance in scheduling a much-needed hip replacement. From my first visit through my continued follow-up care after surgery, Dr. Boettner & his well-organized office staff ensured that I was in capable caring hands. Experiencing a problem with the incision site, he & his staff acted quickly & efficiently. Utilizing experienced nursing staff, they walked me through what steps to take over the phone and when necessary, made arrangements to see me. Proactive, professional, & polite, every question & concern was answered. Dr. Boettner & the Hospital for Special Surgery are the whole package: a highly rated competent surgeon, with a compassionate & great bedside manner, paired with a hospital facility that is rated #1 in orthopedics. A winning and dependable combination for any patient!

I just had my 3 year post op check up with Dr. Boettner and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome of my total right knee replacement! Before, during and after the operation, not only was the staff professional and kind but the operation went smoothly and Dr. Boettner listened to all my concerns and answered all my questions. Pretty soon I was back to walking and swimming for exercise (which I love to do) and that’s all thanks to Dr. Boettner’s expertise and excellence! He was caring but firm about the post op rehab exercises which produced great results. Thank you so much Dr. Boettner, Michelle and staff for your encouragement and support throughout this journey!

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
