In 2017 Dr. Bolognesi replaced both of my hips (3 months apart) and I was pain free after healing. Only spent one night in the hospital after each surgery. The staff at Duke Orthopedics and Duke hospital were fantastic, caring, and answered any questions I asked. Dr. Bolo was congenial, pleasant, and answered all questions spending as much time as needed with me.

I had a partial knee replacement with Dr Bolognesi in November 2018. I knew it was wrong as soon as I came around after surgery. My lower leg was rotated and I was ‘knock kneed’. I had months of unresolved pain and loss of function before I had to get a full knee replacement with another surgeon. The surgery Dr. Bolognesi performed was - in my opinion - done incorrectly. I have done a lot of research and spoken to multiple doctors and they agree that he “could have done much better” Best procedures were not followed. Although a personable and seemingly good natured doctor, he didn’t immediately address my concerns. I had to fight to get to see him rather than his aide. None of which I had to do after seeing other surgeons at Duke. Duke medical is where you are supposed to go for the best doctors. I was very disappointed with my treatment and after care with this doctor. He is supposed to be the best in his field. Not so in my experience. Look elsewhere.

Absolutely the best. The support staff and entire experience was awesome. I had serious infections that he and his colleagues eliminated. The care was detailed and the plan I was on was well thought out.

Dr. Bolognesi and his staff were very professional. The total knee replacement surgery was performed. It was very successful. Dr. Bolognesi explained in depth the total procedure and what I needed to do after the surgery. I would highly recommend him.
