I read many of the reviews for Dr. Bottros before I chose him as my knee surgeon. A friend of mine also had him do her knee replacement and she said he was the best! So that cinched it for me. I have been very happy with him and my knee replacement. It has been 11 weeks since I had it done and I am back walking the dog without pain and riding my stationary recumbent bike in the basement. I am very pleased with my outcome and highly recommend Dr. John Bottros!

Complete hip replacement. Walked within hours of the surgery. Pain was controlled by Acetaminophen, no other pain pills needed. 13 days later I walked into Dr. Bottros office unassisted. Unbelievable quality, 23 days later I can only slightly feel that I had surgery. Don't wait to long, if he recommends surgery, do it.

It was my first visit today and I was hesitant to even go in for a consult but I am so glad I did. The staff were all great, completely efficient and attentive to all my questions and concerns. Then Dr. Bottros came in having already become familiar with my case and was able to give me all the information I needed to make the best health decision for my situation.

Dr Bottros is the best! I went to another orthopedic doctor for 15 years getting injections in my knee to reduce pain to be able to continue snowboarding. Each visit I inquired if I could snowboard after knee replacement & was told no. I come to know better meeting fellow snowboarders at resorts out west with knee replacements. After tearing rotator cuffs & meeting a physical therapist who had a knee replaced by Dr Bottros who said his only regret was not having both knees replaced, I made an appointment to see Dr Bottros for a knee injection. After seeing X-ray of my right knee, he inquired if the injections helped. I replied I couldn’t ever tell. He told me to save my money. I asked him if I could still snowboard after knee replacement & he cautiously said yes. I’ve since had my 2nd knee replaced by Dr Bottros & have happily been snowboarding for the last 5 years since initial knee replaced. I’m now 70 years old & knees are pain free. I snowboarded 44k vertical feet at Beaver Creek 4

He came highly recommended to me and I will do the same. He was very much to the point and seemed to be concerned and truly interested in my issues. My only disappointment is that he would not give me my first set of shots until the next appointment which is different than my past OrthoIll. doctor.
