La Quinta, CA |
Dr. Boghosian replaced my hip May 2017. The surgery was very successful. I had little pain, a rapid recovery and was able to return to all my activities within a month. In addition he is a very caring person, taking time to explain options and procedures and concerned for the health and comfort of his patients. His Physician Assistant, Lindsey Smith, is also very knowledgeable and compassionate. I highly recommend Dr. Boghosian, Lindsey Smith and their staff.

I heard many positive comments about Dr. Boghosian after being been referred to him for hip surgery and I unequivocally say he exceeded ALL expectations. Aside from his excellent reputation as the best ortho surgeon around, he's incredibly kind & caring - truly a Dr who is sincerely "interested" in his patients. I was up and walking without a walker or cane one week following my surgery! My age (62) and following PT instructions made a big difference but having Dr. B was most important of all

Dr. Boghosian performed hip replacement surgery on me in January, 2017. All aspects of the surgery were explained fully to me, and the procedure itself went well without complication. Dr. Boghosian is an extremely well-qualified, well-trained and empathetic orthopedic surgeon. I would recommend him to anyone needing hip or knee replacement surgery or treatment of arthritic pain.

Dr. Boghosian and his whole staff are very professional and very nice! He will answer all your questions and does not talk down to you and is very concerned about your well being before and after the surgery. Very, very professional! I highly recommend him?
Rancho Mirage |
He is a great Ortho surgeon! He replaced both of my knees on the same day. He explained everything and the challenges I might have. I was up for a tough few weeks but it was painless! I walked out of the hospital the 2nd day after surgery and within a 10 days I noticed I forgot my walker on the other side of my home. I worked hard and followed his instructions and treated the therapy as the most important job I ever had. But his skills & knowledge made me wish I did it 3 years sooner!

He thoroughly explains why I needed surgery and the procedure I was going to have. He even gave me his cell phone number if I had any questions before and/or after my knee revision. He showed genuine care for me. The surgery went well and I am recommending him to friends!

I first met Dr. Boghosian in 2011 and he made me feel welcomed from day 1. He has always been professional, accessible and friendly. he truly cares about his patients. he operated on my left knee once and right twice. After care was wonderful. He is always available for his patients.

I had a hip replacement with Dr. Boghosian. He was unbelievably thorough and helpful. He called me from his mobile number the night prior to my surgery to check on me and see if I had any questions and said that if I did have any that came up to feel free to call him or text him. He was incredible throughout the surgery and then he even called again a few days after the surgery to see how I was feeling and reacting to the medication. Incredible bed-side manner and an all around nice doctor.
in Desert Hot Springs, CA |
Dr. Boghosian is a fine surgeon and a fine human being. Always compassionate, he explains the situation that you are seeing for with the utmost care. He answers all questions relating to your health care and will not leave your session until you are in complete understanding of all parameters. He is without doubt the only orthopedic surgeon I or my family will consult.
