Very little pain after surgery. Had same surgery by another Dr. Before and recovery time and the pain was twice as much.

Dr. Foster is an excellent surgeon with a good bedside manner. A combination hard to find these days. He obviously loves what he does and he's good at it. After going to one of the Orthopedic Surgeons who also works on the Pats, (he obviously wasn't used to working on semi-athletic women and wanted to use a patellar tendon graft from my own knee) I went to Dr. Foster for another take on the surgery. He did a beautiful job. My only complaint was the rudeness of the staff at Boston Medical center. The BU staff were all quite nice.

Very accomodating, and skilled surgeon. Very little pain for both of my surgeries, and currently recovering well from my second.

Fantastic doctor! Friendly, pleasant and down to earth. Answers all questions and provides options to patients-doesn't just push surgery. Have recommended him to friends. Best ortho surgeon I've ever had. (I've had 4 knee surgeries)

I've seen may orthopedists over the years and Dr. Foster is TOPS! Friendly. Conservative. He really cares about his patients. When he realized my injury was in need of advanced treatment he sent me to Dr. Gomoll becuase ACI was a better option then OATS. Once I recover from ACI I plan on returning to Dr. Foster for future treatment if needed. Can't say enough nice things about him. Be sure to ask for Tom the PA and not Joe.

61 years old at time of knee surgery. 63 at time of shoulder surgery. 65 now (JUN 2009) and am still running and working out. He's kept me going and that's what I appreciate. If any orthopedic related problems come up again, I'm right back to him!
