All of the five-star assessments of Dr . Vanderwilde, his office staff, and his surgical team are completely accurate. I totally trust his professional assessment of my orthopedic condition and his surgical skill in addressing it. I must. I keep returning. I have had arthroscopic left shoulder surgery (five anchors), a right knee replacement, and left knee scope . And I really test his work (crossfit, hiking, biking, handball), which seems to be holding up much better than my original equipment!

I was taken to the room, almost immediately after checking in, didn't even get to fill the forms out. I had questions, I wanted to ask, but didn't need to since he explained EVERYTHING and drew picture so that I would understand. He listened to my concerns and answered them all. He wasn't just cordial, but had a genuine warm, caring demeanor. If I ever have need of his services, I would not hesitate to see him again.
