MY ankles gave out at the age of 67 and as I had knee surgery at Triangle Ortho in 2014, I went back and met with Dr Viens. Torn ligaments and shredded tendons, he could had not been nicer, more informative and honest on what to expect with both my wife and me. A fantastic surgeon, I can not praise him and his staff enough, they will walk you thru the entire process from day one to telling you "you are fine to go". If you need ankle surgery, there is only surgeon, Dr. Nickolas Viens.

This was my second surgery on the same foot, so I was afraid the surgery would not be successful, but Dr. Viens is an excellent surgeon and I am so glad I saw him for a second opinion! He was honest with me and answered all my questions. He and his staff were with me and my husband throughout our 12-week journey. They never took long to get an answer to me by phone or portal. I could not be more pleased with my results. Dr. Viens is an outstanding doctor!

Absolutely outstanding - very personable, explains every detail thoroughly - wonderful bedside manner.
Dr Viens surgically stabilized my ankle with a plate and screws promising the ankle would be more stable and the recuperation shorter than the traditional weeks and weeks in a cast. The results have proven him absolutely correct. He and his professional staff are very responsive to questions, answering emails within hours. Office appointments are convenient to get to. The NC Speciality Hospital where the surgery was performed was equally accessible with patient centered care foremost.

Excellent care. Both the surgery & the interaction.

Not only is he an excellent surgeon, but he is a very caring and soft spoken man. I really have enjoyed the experience I had with him as a surgeon because he was an excellent diagnostician from the start. He told me what the surgery would involve and how long it would take to fully recover. He also gave me "attaboys" during each visit. I respect him highly and if ever the need arises that I need surgery on my feet or ankles, he will be the one I choose!

I am very satisfied with both the procedure (ankle surgery) and the physical therapy (Emerge Ortho). It's great to be back to jogging in under six months time. I would recommend Dr. Viens to any of my friends and family.

Dr. Viens performed surgery in September, 2015, to repair my damaged peroneal tendon and ligaments. The results have been beyond my expectations! I am now over 6 months post-surgery, and I no longer have the nagging pain and discomfort I had before surgery. My ankle is healing as expected, and I am regaining strength and resuming normal activities.I would highly recommend Dr. Viens. He and the staff have provided me with a great patient experience.

My experience with Dr. Viens was fantastic. I had surgery and follow-up care for a ruptured achilles tendon. The final result of the surgery was excellent and my recovery was way ahead of schedule. He is very qualified and very friendly and informative. He took time to answer any questions i had and i never felt like he was in a hurry. I would recomend him for anyone considering surgery.
