Patient Comments (10)

Dr. Van Deventer has performed two total knee replacements for me, one over 9 years ago and most recently in April 2018. Both experiences were extremely positive with no after issues or complications. I credit my very swift recovery to Dr. Van Deventer's expertise. Great doctor!

Dr VanDeventer has performed two successful surgeries for me-the most recent being three weeks ago when he completed a total hip replacement. I am already walking without a cane or walker. My incision from the surgery healed rapidly without any complications, and I am thrilled with the outcome. ...more

Great doctor - patient even in hectic conditions, good listener, gives advice but is not high pressure. He realizes his limits, and gives you other options to consider.
