in Homestead, FL |
Excellent skilled surgeon and wonderful bedside manner. Two knee replacements-no problem recovering. Attributed to his skills and my following his orders on recoup and therapy. His record as far as the nurses is 100% perfect. My knees were so bad my legs were bowed. Now straight as an arrow. Therapist couldn't believe it. He calls you the night before and talks until you are comfortable with surgery the next morning. I so recommend this young man.

Outstanding surgeon and person. Dr. Van der Ven treated us with amazing kindness and performed a very complicated total hip replacement with ease and precision.

I was lucky to find Dr. Alexander van der Ven. He is an excellent orthopedic surgeon. I found him to be very caring and listening doctor. He takes time to explain everything to you and listens to your every concern. There is no hard sell here. You and only you make the decision to go through and operation. I am recuperating from a bilateral total knee replacement which was done in late August/2016. I am on the road to recovery, and very happy with the outcome.

Excellent ortopedic surgeon.

Dr. van der Ven is a young, highly skilled orthopedic doctor. I've seen him several times because of osteoarthritis of the knee. In the near future, I will need a total knee replacement but Dr. van der Ven isn't the type to push surgery immediately, he likes to try conservative approaches before the last resort of surgery. Both times I've seen him the waiting time has been about an hour beyond my appointment time but when he does see you, he is not in a rush and takes time to talk and listen.

The doctor is warm and straight forward. He inspires confidence. I feel safe with his abilities. However some of his staff need a lesson in customer service and compassion.

Dr. Can der Ven answered all my questions and gave me realistic expectations. He helped me with addressing my claustrophobia issues with the anesthesiologist and I was treated with respect. He was very attentive and even gave me his cell phone number which helped assuage my fears.

I had a total hip replacement two and a half months ago and my recovery has been rapid and painless after the first two weeks. I was pleasantly surprised and continue to be pleased. I used a walker for a week and a cane for another week and then nothing. I would highly recommend Dr. van der Ven. He is going to do a knee replacement on me in January and I hope it goes as well as the hip.

Dr. VDV knows what he's doing. I had a hip replacement & he, Dr's Hospital & his staff did a near-perfect job. He accurately diagnosed & treated me, controlled the pain (I was worried about this), & pretty much mapped everything out accurately from start to finish. I'm so happy with the results and the fast recuperation. I attribute that to his surgical methodology. I hope my other hip stays well for a long time but if it doesn't I'm calling Dr VDV.

Dr. Van der Ven is an excellent surgeon, and a wonderful human being. My first.contact with Dr.van der ven was for.a consultation on my R knee, after a total knee replacement that did not go well. The surgeon who performed the replacement was hesitant to fix it. I was in a lot of pain and great difficulty to walk. I was worry thinking that probably Dr.Van De Ven will not accept to take the risk of the revision procedure. He not only fixed my knee, but recently he replaced my L knee.I am so happy
