Dr Aalderink really does want to help his patients and he expresses great enthusiasm toward that goal. That said, I feel that in my particular case, he was far too hasty to prescribe surgery. I had chronic hip pain for which I was hoping he could help. I was open to but hoping to avoid surgery. He performed what he assured me would be a minor exploratory procedure. In actuality he reshaped part of the bone in the joint which led to more pain and new cracking and popping in the area. Not pleased

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.
