Had three visits, so far, with Dr. Linschoten. He is incredible. He and his staff are really kind, friendly and compassionate. He explains everything in a very clear and caring manner. My visits with him were always stress free and warm and I really felt calm and at ease. I will need to have total knee replacement on both knees and Dr. Linschoten explained and reassured me on the advantages of robotic surgery, which he is one of a few who performs this surgery at BRG. I have scheduled my surgery for mid March 2022 and feel confident, that I chose the right surgeon. I have no doubt that I will receive expert care, a smooth prep, have a successful surgery outcome and an outstanding follow-up care from him and professional staff.

After a previous hip surgery triggered severe arthritis to form, I had to get a hip replacement. I knew I wanted a Stryker dual mobility hip replacement joint to be able to get back full range of motion. Important advice about whom to choose as a surgeon: go with the surgeon who accepts patients whose other hip replacement surgeries needed to be redone due to complications or not being properly done in the first place. Dr. Niels Linschoten was the ONLY surgeon who met both qualifications in Baton Rouge. I can't tell you how impressed I am with Dr. Linschoten's skill level. My entire surgery lasted only 45 minutes meaning there's less risk of needing a blood transfusion. Dr. Linschoten was cheerful, attentive, and knowledgeable every time I saw him as was Camille, Dr. Linschoten's physician's assistant. I'm really grateful to Dr. Linschoten for doing such a great job on my hip replacement surgery. It makes all the difference in the world having confidence and trust in your surgeon.

It was an amazing experience! We considered all precautionary action prior to deciding upon a hip replacement. From pre-surgery through post-surgery, recovery, and follow-up appointments have been outstanding. Care for people is at the paramount with Dr. Linschoten and his team of professionals. Thank you for getting me back on my feet!

I love this doc.. he is straight forward, and is clear on expectations from you. I expected the worst pain ever following my knee replacements and I was amazingly surprised with next to no pain. His use of the Mako robotics system was the best choice I ever made! Thank you for every pain free step!

Great experience with Dr. Linschoten and staff. He is a very calm and gentle man who made me feel very comfortable during my consultation. Dr. Linschoten was very attentive to my needs and concerns. He explained in detail what I can expect if I did get surgery and if I didn't get surgery. I will see him again if I have to get surgery on the other hip.

Dr. Linschoten is an incredible surgeon and gifted with compassion for his patients. I am sorry it took me so long to muster up the courage to do this... should have done this years ago! I will be forever grateful!

Outstanding Experience and Results! Dr. Linschoten treated my knee for three years before it became necessary for knee replacement. I trusted him completely and found his diagnoses and treatments to be accurate and helpful. When the time came for TKR he was clear in his explanations. The results have been better than I could have imagined. I was walking miles, biking, playing golf, and mowing the lawn within a matter of weeks post-op. Dr. Linschoten and his staff have helped me tremendously.
