I have been going to Dr. Bostrom for my knees since 2008. He and his staff are very forthright and very nice to patients. Everyone in the hospital has enormous respect for Dr. Bostrom, who in turn has enourmous experience with these knee and hip replacements. I recommend! They are interested in helping you to feel better and get back to your life. Hopefully better than before!

Awful surgeon. Five months after hip replacement I am still in pain and he acts as if I am making it up. Nasty and arrogant like a stereotypical surgeon. His staff is nasty as well . He also is not transparent with his patients. He is more interested in complex cases and could care less about primary joint replacement. I think that if you are an "easy case" he let's residents and PA's do it

Just had a complicated total knee revision done by Sr. Bostrom. He is a genius and his team is top notch. Pain minimal and procedure seems perfect. Very talented man.
For hip replacement, Dr Bostrom practices the traditional posterior method. When I consulted him, he alleged that hip replacement by the newer anterior approach involved detaching tendons that could not be reattached. I got a second opinion from a practioner of the newer anterior approach who told me that no tendons were detached under this approach. Whether Dr Bostrom was merely ignorant or intentionally misinformed me, his consultation was untrustworthy. I chose anterior and am glad I did.
