What do you say to someone who saved your life? I had a cerebal hemorhage (brain aneurism) in 2013- my outcome was grim. Thanks to the Vancouver Fire Department, emergency staff at St. Paul's Hospital and Vancouver Hospital, and Vancouver paramedics. I am lucky enough to be able to write this letter of thanks.
I don't remember too much, but Dr. Redekop (assisted by Dr. Mendelson) performed emergency surgery - kept me alive, then kept my loving family informed of my condition on an almost hourly basis. Dr. Redekop also advised my siblings to go get checked as it is passed on in families. He was in to talk to me almost every day while I healed. I was in ICU at VGH and my hat and heart go off to the amazing staff - I was quite high on oxycodone and they were all very patient with my opiate induced behavior - they are all angels. After I was moved from ICU to a regular ward, the staff, again was stellar - I am so thankful to everyone.
About Dr. Redekop - the stars were aligned for me that day. I was lucky enough to have him draw the straw on me, and, not only did he do that, he talked to me daily - explained to my loved ones exactly what was happening inside my brain, and did so in a kind, intelligent, uncondescending way. His assistant, Dr. Mendelson was the same way - he came in to see me almost every day - he even made sure he shaved off the smallest amount of hair from my head so that when (or if) I woke up, I'd still have most of my hair!
People complain about our medical system all the time, but I am here to say that it works! We have the finest doctors available and when we need it, the system is there for us. I had almost every branch of the medical system help me that night, then for the following two weeks as I convalesced. My family and friends who met Dr. Redekop and Dr. Mendelson could not believe their bedside manners - I can not stress enough Dr. Redekop's professionalism and kindness. A possibly horrible situation turned out to be a true lesson in humility - we all learned something from this experience and I am closer to my family and friends than ever - because of Dr. Redekop and all the countless angels who dedicate their lives to helping others.
My family has a very long history of Brain Aneurysms. My mom and her brothers passed from this. I had one that did burst in my brain and was flown to Vancouver from the island. Dr. Redekop repaired me with the coil. Since then my whole family has had MRI"s and it was found that some of them also had aneurysms. He has since repaired my whole family and just finished one today with great results. He is a fantastic human being with brains and from what I can remember a very good looking man.

I have been suffering from Brain Aneurysm, and had three un-ruptured aneurysms between 3mm to 16mm. I was worried sick about my diagnosis and after a lot of research and seeing one other brain specialist, I finally saw Dr. Redekop. From the time of first visit he exuded confidence; he comforted me and my wife, and put my mind at ease. He’s got great bed side manners, explained the procedure, and scheduled me in. The operation went very well, despite challenging conditions (aneurysm behind my left eye). He re-assured me before going into the room, and gave immediate update to my family when operation was over, and followed-up post-surgery. My recovery was incredibly fast, and after 6mos post-surgery I have very few side effects after such a major operation and I am almost back to 100%. Dr. Redekop is not only a great doctor with exceptional skills, he’s also an honest and caring man. Cannot thank him enough for what he did for me and my family and cannot recommend him enough.
I can not say enough good things about Dr. Redekop. He is not only an amazing surgeon, he is down to earth, kind and personable. Despite serious and scary circumstances he always put me at ease and I feel better about my situation after seeing him. He is very even tempered and calm in his approach. You are lucky to have him as your surgeon.
I don't know a lot about neurosurgery but O do know that without Dr. Resekop's help I would not be here .He persuaded me to undergo surgery and he performed the surgery.I am teuly grateful to Dr. Redekop and the others who assisted in the surgery and those who literally ' nursed' me back to health!
This past Christmas I was diagnosed with a brain tumor. I was sent immediately down to VGH to see Dr. Redekop. He met me in emergency after reviewing my file and admited me for surgery the next day. I was very impressed with his bedside manner,and his desire to take the time to explain everything thoroughly to both me and my husband. My surgery went very well and I was left with no complications or neurological deficits. He is a wonderful surgeon and I would recommend him to anyone who is in need of a neurosurgeon.
I have nothing but praise for this doctor who has perforned two seperate surgeries on my brain to remove two large menengioma tumors (2000 & 2006). He has given me the spirit and confidence to recover fully and quickly. If anyone who reads this rating to make a decision on his abilities I would like to say that he is likely the best Neurosurgeon in Canada and I thank all the powers above for giving me the good fortune to have been referred to Dr. Redekop. "Your in good (steady) hands with Dr. Redekop".
