A very sincere person, easy to talk to and uses layman's language making it easy for the average person to understand. A man clearly dedicated to his profession.
My first hip replacement was carried out by Mr Boden four and a half years ago. When the second was required one year ago I specifically requested that Mr Boden do the surgery due to the pre-care, excellent work and aftercare that I received for the first replacement. The same pre-care, excellent work and aftercare was provided for the second replacement.
Many thanks, it was my pleasure and I’m glad to see you are back to full activity.
Mr.Boden is very approachable. He explained, things at every step, was prepared to listen to my concerns, made me feel comfortable. My knee replacement has been very successful and has given me a new lease of life.
I’ve had 2 hips replaced over the last 2 years and received the same quality care on both occasions. Before both operations Mr Boden gave me time to express any anxiety. He took time to answer all my questions truthfully but with optimism. After each operation he was able to offer a bedside consultation and was forthcoming with an explanation of what had occurred during the operation, and what to expect in the near future. Post operative appointments were kept and on time. He made it plain that I would be able to phone him should I need to. This was not necessary as all went according to what he predicted. All this with a good bedside manner. I couldn’t have asked for better care.
Many thanks for your feedback. It has been my pleasure to treat you, it is a privilege to work with great staff who help provide care. I wish you all the best in the future
I have had 2 total knee replacements 1 in June 2017 and the other September 2018 and both have been a total success. I can’t praise Mr Boden and his staff enough for putting me at ease about the operation and follow up exercises I had to do. I would certainly recommend Mr Boden to anyone. I was discharged in September 2019.
Many thanks for your feedback. It was my pleasure to see you progress so well. All the best and as I said in clinic, if you need anything, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
