She preformed surgery on me and I had absolutely no post operative pain. She did give me pain pills but I did not have to use them!!!! Dr Vaden is very professional and comforting. I never felt embarrassed with her even though my problem was on my buttock. I would see her again if I needed to. I would definitely recommend her services.

My family and I have been super happy with Dr. Vaden. She exudes confidence and for a reason, she is a gifted surgeon and excellent physician. Intelligent doctor who can talk to any level which is so important. You can tell that she and her surgical staff treat each of their patients like valued family members. Such talent, right here in North Central Missouri, and a bedside manner that is pure and natural. Dr Vaden is a jewel!!!

Dr Vaden is easy to work with. She explains everything so well. She prepares you for success before and after surgery. I was amazed how quickly I recovered from major surgery. Was in the hospital less than 48 hours, total time. She is great. So glad she did my surgery,
