Prior to Dr. Friedrich Boettner performing hip resurfacing surgery on me July 2018, I had gone from running 20 marathons and competitive league...
I woke up in mid April of 2014 and could not bear any weight on my right leg. Overnight, I couldn't walk.
Dr. Boettner is my blessing. I'm 29 and I had a car accident on 2011 in my country, which resulted in a left knee injury.
I share my story with overwhelming appreciation and equal pride. I have been involved in competitive sports my entire life.
I finally had reached a point where the pain in my hip was just too much. I was losing sleep because the pain was waking me up several times a night.
Dr. Boettner did an excellent job replacing my knee.
In 2017 I began to notice some frequent discomfort in my right hip. Being in my 60s, I assumed it was just aging and dismissed it.
I had my hip replacement surgery on July 10, 2019. The staff, my doctor (Dr. Friedrich Boettner) was amazing.
When I found out that I was in need of a hip replacement in 2013 my first choice for was Hospital for Special Surgery.
