Friedrich Boettner, MD PCSpecialist in Minimally Invasive
Knee and Hip Replacement

Dr. Fritz Boettner is a specialist in joint-preserving arthroscopic surgery and minimally invasive total joint replacements of the knee and hip.

His practice concentrates on the nonsurgical and surgical treatment of early arthritis. As part of a patient-centered individual approach, he performs arthroscopic cartilage surgery and minimally invasive total joint replacements as well as resurfacings.

“Minimal invasive surgery reduces surgical trauma, resulting in advantages for early rehabilitation,” he says. ”In addition, patients love their cosmetically appealing incision.”

Born in Germany, Dr. Boettner studied at the top international centers for his specialty, completing fellowships in four sub-areas, as well as additional training in pelvic osteotomies and open hip dislocation with surgeons in Germany, Switzerland and the United States. He has authored an orthopedic textbook, as well as numerous scientific publications.
