Dr. John Healey Jr, MD
I aim is to see that my patients are provided the best and most current treatment that medicine can deliver, even if that means referring them to another physician to achieve that goal. I am continuously investigating new treatments, and balancing utilizing "tried and true" traditional treatments versus cutting edge new interventions.

Care Philosophy

Today's patients have a wealth of information readily available to them and it is my job to refine and deepen the understanding of their injury/ problem, and the treatment options best suited to their individual situation. Only by listening to my patient's concerns and descriptions can we arrive at an accurate diagnosis, and develop an individualized treatment plan. Regrettably, in a busy practice, there are times where in giving every patient the time they need, I will get behind and cause myself to be late in seeing subsequent patients. My priority is to give patients the time necessary to achieve our goal of an accurate and sound treatment plan.

in Kalamazoo, MI |
There is a lot to like about this practice. Dr. Healey is informative and trustworthy. Questions are answered in a thoughtful manner. The postoperative explanation about my surgical procedure was thorough and photographs were extremely helpful. The people from the front desk to the advance practice providers are gracious and thorough.

My recent meniscus surgery with Dr Healy went very well. It has been six weeks since surgery and I have fully resumed my cardio excersizes and daily walks with full function and no pain. Dr Healy was excellent. He also performed complete knee replacements on both knees for my wife over the past 3-4 years. Her recovery periods were 5-6 weeks each time, with outstanding success. I had no questions about who I wanted to perform my surgery when it was my turn, Dr Healy was top gun!
in Allegan, MI |
Dr. Kane referred me to Dr. Healey for hip orthoscopic surgery. Dr. Healey did an exam, looked at all the information, made a diagnosis and proceeded with the procedure that has made me free of the pain I have lived with for 2 years. He contacted my doctor concerning my immune defiency and the surgery went great. I am very grateful for both Dr Kane and Dr. Harley for listening and acting conservatively and precisely.
Thanks for sharing such kind words. We are truly proud to have Dr. Kane & Dr. Healey on our team. Their knowledge and personal investment in you is at the foundation of what the "RVO Experience" stands to bring to the world of orthopedic care.

I have had Dr. Healey for two separate surgeries. He performed a ACL graph and a meniscus graph on my knee. Both surgeries went well and were successful.
Thank you for trusting River Valley Orthopedics with your orthopedic care. As a practice we strive to create an "RVO Experience" based on orthopedic expertise and a personal investment in you. It's a privilege to help you get back to doing!
