Philadelphia, PA |
Dr. Wu takes the time to explain things clearly. I felt comfortable trusting him with my surgery. He did a great job too!
Williamstown, NJ |
Dr. Wu was very professional. The surgery went very smoothly.
in Yardley, PA |
Dr. Wu is the person you want to perform neurosurgery on you or a loved one: well-regarded, confident, utterly qualified & unassuming. He performed my deep brain stimulation (DBS) surgery - "asleep" DBS. Went as flawlessly as I could have hoped. Precise within .5mm of the target & healed wonderfully. He was considerate throughout: answered every question, discussed all aspects of the procedure & thorough in following up. His staff was just as professional, courteous & competent. Highly recommend

Dr. Wu was my second opinion and I am soo glad I kept that appointment. My condition was very scary to me, but after consulting with DR. Wu he put my mind at ease.he opted not to do surgery but to let the fracture heal on its own due to its location and the deterioration of the spine, while other surgeons would have jumped on the opportunity to do surgery THANK GOD DR. Wu decided it would benefit me better to let the fracture heal on its own. I thank god for Dr. Wu everyday.
in Marcus Hook, PA |
Doctors Wu is one of the most exceptional doctors I have encountered during my medical journey. He takes time to explain procedures and offers different suggestions. He allows time for questions and does not make you feel rushed. I feel blessed to have such a caring, knowledgeable doctor and would highly recommend him.
in Manahawkin, NJ |
Dr. Wu was very professional and honest, and has great "bed side" manner. The spinal surgery was complex but was done with no issues. TJU facilities and staff were outstanding. I intend to be fully recovered ahead of schedule. Dr. Wu made a "not so great" experience bearable. I would recommend him to anyone.
in Collingswood, NJ |
Dr. We was willing to help me get my life back when no other doctor was. I owe my ability to walk the right way to him. His bedside manner and ease when talking with me about everything made my surgery go easily.
in Pipersville, PA |
Dr. Wu was thorough and took the time and diligence to figure out and solve my complex problems. He is personable and takes time to explain problems and answer questions. I am completely happy with my care.
