      Funny...When I told all my soccer playing friends that Dr. Boykin was my surgeon for an ACL reconstruction nobody knew his name. I did some research and found out he worked with professional athletes on the National Ski Team. That was all I needed. I'm happy to report that my knee is coming along faster than I ever imagined, and I owe that to Dr. Boykin. I wouldn't hesitate a second to recommend him to anybody unlucky enough to rupture their ACL.

      He had about as much time and respect for me as he would have had to a fly . I did not understand this, but I will never go back to this practice, nor would I recommend it to anyone I know. Boooooo
      in Black Mountain, NC |
      I would highly recommend Dr. Boykin. The facilities are easy to find, the staff is knowledgable and professional, and Dr Boykin maintained contact throughout and, communicated in a manner that was easily understandable and reassuring. My shoulder pain is now a thing of the past and I'm back to climbing and throwing a baseball with my son. I cannot thank Blue Ridge Bone and Joint enough, it was a great experience, and I would highly recommend this Dr and his staff.

      The best orthopedist I have ever been to....more knowledgeable about the newest techniques. Great bedside manner and a caring Doctor!
      in Horse Shoe, NC |
      Dr. Boykin has preformed surgery on three of our family members and all have had excellent results. For myself he recommended physical therapy, which worked well. He is the type of doctor that doesn't opt for surgery unless necessary. We would highly recommend him.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
