After going through several months of PT, my therapist recommended me to see a surgeon and Dr. Aalderink was close to where I live and work. I appreciated his approach to my shoulder issue and his willingness to try things other than surgery first. After continued pain and loss of function, I decided to have the surgery. He did an excellent job explaining the process both before the surgery and after. He also was able to take care of a fairly major injury that had not shown up on the MRI.

After years in pain & 2 failed scopes, I went to see Dr. Aalderink on the recommendation of my PT, who had been impressed with his results. I was hesitant to have more surgery, but couldn't go on the way I was. Within 4 months of my first appt, I'd had revisions on both hips. I'm now back to my sport & pain free! If you're looking for a great FAI surgeon, he's it! Additionally, his office staff is friendly and helpful, appointments are easy to get and the office runs on time. A rare combination.
in Westland, MI |
walked out of the office in more pain than I went in with after the x rays were taken. No discussion of pain management (other than starting injections in 4 to6 weeks once approved by insurance) no knee brace, Called back and was seen by Dr. Wild,(same office) received some temporary injections to relieve swelling and pain. discussions about proper shoe supports. Aalderink is a bit of eye candy but nothing more than that.
