Dr Rudan did a knee replacement for me; very poor results. Quality of life is much worse now. In constant pain and have diminished mobility. His response? My pain is all in my head! My final visit I waited 5 hrs in the waiting room followed by 45min in the exam rm. I asked him for a referral for a 2nd opinion. He refused. I left, insulted; his intern chased me and apologized for him. Got a 2nd opinion elsewhere. My knee is rotated 38 deg to the R and tilts forward making contact with my shin. And they cracked my hip during the surgery. I've had 2 years of hell and am much worse off. Now the other knee needs done. I think Dr Rudan used to be half decent but should now just stick to his administrative responsibilities and give up surgery; depends too much on his interns. Finally found another doctor who is compassionate caring and who reassured me that the pain is real and comes from my knee, not my head. I regret having my knee done by Dr Rudan. Now I'm dealing with hip AND knee pain
After a TKR I have had many complications and issues that other doctors have put down to unfortunate circumstances Dr Rudan Has put on me. I regret having my knee replaced but once it is done, it's done. It can't have anything to do with the surgeon as far as Dr Rudan is concerned.
He's the best surgeon in Kingston, and most likely in Ontario. If you want to feel completely comfortable that you're getting the absolute best result concerning hip care, he should be your choice. Dr. Rudan has performed 2 hip replacements and 2 revisions on each of my hips, and I have never had a problem. (I have had these surgeries from a young age, not because of any fault of Dr. Rudan's.)
Hi There! I have been a patient of Dr. Rudan's for almost 20 years! I was diagnosed with ewing sarcoma (bone cancer) in my left humerus. Dr Rudan replaced my humerus with a metal prothesis. This man has been there for me when I have needed him. And I can also tell you I have emailed him with any concern I have had and he always emailed me back within an hour or so. Also, got me in to see him the next day. I was in KGH for a different issue once, he must have saw my name in a morning briefing or something and made sure he came to see me that very morning. I speak very highly of him and always will! I do miss the visits however over time I am sure to visit him again someday!
I was referred to this orthopaedic surgeon by another orthopaedic surgeon. He has been great... has performed 4 different surgeries on me and I have absolutely no complaints. He is knowledgable, understanding, extremely busy but you don't have a sense of being rushed when you see him. An excellent doctor... a bit frustrating dealing with his office staff but otherwise great.
This Man Calls himself a surgeon?? Maybe if he showed up for surgery instead of letting his intern screw up his reputation. Had a femer repaired after an accident. they MALrotated my leg 48 degrees. I could turn my leg around backwards. WOW!! If I wanted to join the circus, I would have fit right in. As a result I have told everyone I come in contact with to never get anything done at the KGH.... but thats just my opinion.
