Loved him. Friendly once you get him out of his shell! Professional. I put my life in his hands five years ago and so glad I did! I had a double curvature and my back is gorgeous! I recommend him so often to people with back problems! You couldn't ask for a better back surgeon! When nurses and X-ray techs sing praises you know you have a winner!

Not only is this physician brilliant & one of the country's best orthopedic surgeons, he's one of the finest human beings I've ever had the honor to know. He has the BEST bedside manner too! Funny and jovial, kind & empathetic. Dr. Von Rueden has successfully completed two major spine reconstruction surgeries on me. I have recommended and will continue to do so.

I was referred to Dr Von Rueden early in my arthritic spine disease. He has cared for me with all modalities including surgeries. Dr Von Reuden will remain my spinal physician as long as he is in practice.
