Dr. Hedlund and his staff at OAM were always courteous and helpful. They were careful to take the time to answer all questions. As a result, I felt confident before, during, and after the procedure (torn miniscus). However, be prepared for a very busy office complex at OAM.

Great results. Our 16 year old daughter underwent arthroscopic surgery to repair an osteochondral lesion in her knee SHe was in constant pain prior to surgery. It was a huge sucess. She is no longer having any pain and her strength is improving daily. Dr. Hedlund took plenty of time to answer all of our questions. His PA, Kevin, is also fantastic - knowledgealbe and skilled. I highly recommend them both.

Dr. Hedlund is one of the most knowledgeable and compassionate healthcare providers I have ever met. My child knew that he had a plan that would get her where she wanted to be and she understood what part she needed to take in her recovery. He made himself available if need be and the office and medical staff are awesome. Dr. Hedlund and the staff made what was an emotional and very scary surgery tolerable for my daughter. I just can't say Thank you enough!

Dr. Hedlund is an excellent surgeon. The outcomes of my surgeries (partial knee replacement, meniscus repair, treatment for a bone contusion, and rotator cuff surgery} exceeded my expectations. Dr. Hedlund and his staff are professional, courteous, and caring. Dr. Hedlund and his staff deserve my highest ratings.

I have seen Dr. Hedlund for the last 6-years and had 3-surgical Procedures done by him. The first was my bicep tendon, meniscus repair and rotator cuff repair. He does an excellent job as a surgeon, minimizes the recovery time as best he can, minimal cutting requiring fewer stitches. He and his staff provide excellent care and I would recommend him to anyone.

Visited Dr. Hedlund with severe damage and pain in right knee. Surgery was complete success and am walking today without any pain or discomfort. Everything was explained totally prior to and after surgery. I would highly recommend Dr. Hedlund for any knee surgery that you may require.
in Grand Rapids, MI |
Thus far (about 15 years working with Dr. Hedlund for knee problems), he's been great! Enthusiastic, upbeat and concerned for opinion of the patient. I appreciate that. I never felt rushed, he gives painless injections (more than I can say for some PAs - at least that's been my experience). The problem I've been seeing him for is injury and osteoarthritis of both knees. I've come through about 15 years on shots and it looks like now it's time to consider total knee replacements. More then. :)
in Hudsonville, MI |
Dr. Hedlund misdiagnosed two of my injuries. His attitude was dismissive and arrogant. I am glad that I went for a second opinion in both of these situations because he didn't run the appropriate tests for a diagnosis. I now understand how serious my injury is, he dismissed it as a sprain. Seek a second opinion.
