I consider myself a 'geriatric sports medicine specialist.' I find my patients are younger, more active and healthier than ever. I am fellowship trained in hip and knee replacement, and also specialize in revision surgery for patients with prior hip and knee replacements that start to fail. A big part of my life is my profession, which I enjoy immensely and take seriously. I feel very fortunate I chose to specialize in knee and hip replacement surgery which are both such incredibly successful and needed procedures.
Born and raised in the San Fernando Valley suburbs of Los Angeles, Dr. Boardman earned his undergraduate and medical school degrees at the University of California at Davis before returning to Los Angeles for orthopaedic training at the University of California at Los Angeles. Later, he completed a year-long fellowship in hip and knee replacement surgery at the San Francisco Orthopaedic Residency program.
In 1999, Dr. Boardman moved his young family to begin practice with Kaiser Permanente in Portland, Oregon. His tenure at Kaiser spanned over 18 years, more than eight of which he served as the NW Regional Chief of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery there. In addition, he helped launch an accredited specialty program in Hip and Knee Replacement Surgery at Kaiser Permanente.
