Ankle replacement
I am very grateful for Dr.Dekker. He is an extremely talented Doctor and also very caring and attentive to his patients. The ankle replacement surgery went perfect. I’m beyond happy with the surgery results and excited for a better quality of life, after many years of pain. He is truly an angel on earth. I highly recommend him and his whole team, from the office to surgical personnel. Thank you!

Wrist fracture. Dr Dekker cast then reset my fracture perfectly! Follow up visits were successful from X-ray techs to assistants and Dr Dekker recommended Health Quest in Rochester Mi. No surgery due to excellent treatment and wonderful therapy. Very happy with all services and would recommend highly.

Best Orthopedic Surgeon to see for ankle problems. He treated me for a broken ankle that required surgery. After surgery, he helped me get back to playing tennis and bike riding. I had a great experience in his office and I recommend him to anyone.
