Dr. Taufik Valiante's Ratings
My husband was diagnosed with an arachnoid cyst in December 2010. After many visits to neurologists and neurosurgeons, they advised my husband that we watch and wait. The cyst grew larger and my husband began to experience worse symptoms. The one neurosurgeon said it would be risky due to the location of the cyst, and therefore, did not feel confident to operate. We decided to seek a second opinion. A friend of ours suggested Dr. Valiante. Although, my husband's surgery was very complex because of the location of the cyst, Dr. Valiante felt very confident that he could perform the surgery. He made my husband and I feel very confident. It was a 5 hour operation, and when my husband was in the recovery room, we couldn't believe his symptoms were gone. Unbelievable! Dr. Valiante truly cares about his patients and their family members! He is an angel in disguise and the best neurosurgeon around! My husband was back running in 3 months and running marathons again! Anyone to have Dr. Valiante is very, very fortunate. We thank Dr. Valiante for giving my husband and our life back!....and yes we had a lot of prayers too....Thank you! thank you! thank you Dr. Valiante and your staff at Toronto Western. You are the absolute best!
Dr. Taufik Valiante is my hero as I feel like he's doing his best to try an stop my epilepsy or calm my seizures down as I've been epileptic for 10 years and I just started having Grand Mal seizures this January 2015. Dr. Valiante an his surgical team performed my brain surgery on July/20th/2015 An so far, I feel my surgery was a big success, as I've been seizure free for 51 days now an I hope it remains this way so I can reach my career goal to become a hairdresser! 😉 So all my blessings an an thanks to the entire neuro surgical team an to Dr. Taufik. Valiante. ❤
This is an amazing man! Brilliant, compassionate, world class. We are so lucky in Toronto to call him ours. He performed epilepsy surgery on my son and for the first time in 26 years my son is seizure free. Words can not do Dr. Valiante justice.
Amazing doctor, amazing surgeon, amazing person. If anyone has the opportunity, no matter how unfortunate the situation may be, be thankful and feel comfortable you are in the hands of Dr Valiante. Thank you for changing my life.
Dr Valiante took ten hours (instead of the predicted 6) to remove my posterior fossa tumour - leaving behind as little damage as possible. His residents and fellow were exemplary. On return visits Dr. Valiante is engaged and empathetic -- stress after brain cancer, the anxiety of a recurrence is overwhelming but both surgeon and his support staff manage it extraordinarily well.
If I could make the rating 10 out of 5 I would because Dr. Valiante and his staff go above and beyond for his patients! I had brain surgery a few years ago for seizures and it wasn't anticipated to have 100% recovery but so far it seems that's the case (don't want to jinx it) :) He is able to clearly communicate very complicated subject matter into a way that is entirely comprehensible. He shows much compassion for his patients - even though it's his job to cut us open he doesn't forget that this is (hopefully) a once in a lifetime experience for the patients. I could go on and on, but suffice it to say, he is extremely smart, an excellent doctor and wonderful person overall! Highly, highly, highly recommend him and Toronto Western Hospital in general.
Having a Brain Tumour surgery Once is complicated enough and gives you a second chance in life! Having a Brain Tumour surgery Twice with after over 20 years of Epileptic Seizures, Chemo Therapies, Countless Medications and and still be able to walk, run, swim, play normal, communicate normal and even look normal is an Advanced Award Winning Science Project from the 21 Century and he and his crew deserve an Eternal Youth and Life as an Award if it was possible with All the Love and Thank You From the Bottom of My Heart!
