Ratings for Dr. Nicolas Duval
Nine weeks ago I travelled to Laval, Quebec to undergo hip replacement. I've had several surgeries over the years. I want to say that if having any surgery can be a 'pleasant' experience, THIS WAS ONE of them! From the day I was admitted until my discharge from this spotlessly clean & quiet facility, the care I received from the surgeons, physiotherapists & the entire staff was more than EXCELLENT! I had not known that this type of dedication to patients who arrive suffering pain & having the fear of surgery, still existed. It was amazing to feel the compassion I received from all of the professionals looking after me with genuine concern for my comfort & recovery throughout my stay at this clinic. Dr. Duval & his team take time in their very busy schedule to visit patients after surgery to explain everything regarding the surgery. I had full confidence that I chose the best clinic for this procedure. I was sent home to Vancouver with an extensive file giving me all the information I may need during my full recovery & rehabilitation program. It also welcomed me to call anytime if I have questions or concerns regarding the process of full mobility. I am in no pain & with the recommended physio I am well on my way to becoming even more mobile than I had been before I discovered I needed surgery at all. I will always be grateful for this experience & thank everyone at the Clinic for make it such a pleasant & comfortable experience for me! If this clinic was a hotel, I'd give it 5 stars! THANK YOU!

Répond à toutes mes questions, très humains, très satisfaite de mon opération arthroscopie du genou plusieurs suivis avec le médecin, j'ai adoré mon expérience et la clinique est d'une propreté qui ferait rougir plusieurs centre hospitalier, je le recommande fortement
En mars 2014,j'ai eu un remplacement bilatéral de hanches par deux prothèses en céramique .Les chirurgiens Nicolas Duval et Martin Lavigne ont procédés à cette opération. A l'été je faisais des randonnées de velo,en décembre,j'étais sur les pentes de ski au mont-habitant.Un gros merci à ces deux magiciens.Sans oublier le docteur pauline Lavoie pour son professionnalisme......Fernand Frigon...Laval retraité 76 ans
I am an RN specializing in operating room nursing, and specifically orthopedics. I had one hip replaced in 2007, and the other in 2009 by Dr. Duval and his associate surgeons. The 2009 hip was done at his newly opened surgical suite in his building, a vast improvement from the facility he was renting space in (private surgery center). The staff at Drs. Duval and Lavoie's facility are head and shoulders swifter than the staff at the surgery center. I am pleased to have my active life back thanks to Dr. Duval's expertise in surgery and Dr. Lavoie's management of everything else in their business. Last year I spent a month hiking in the National Forest in Cloudcroft, New Mexico (9000 ft), and the year before I was backpacking gold prospecting supplies into the back country in Colorado, (brolltools.com, bucket roller to carry the heavy stuff) including getting up/down off the ground from a sleeping bag in a tent. This year I'm really getting serious about getting my conditioning kickstarted before going to the mountains, so I'm up to 20 minutes warmup on the elliptical before resistance weights. I'm on my feet in the operating room 8-12 hours per day, and could not have gone back to such a demanding job without Dr. Duval and team!
J'ai consulté Dr Duval, qui m'a recommandé une opération à 25000 $ Après avoir consulté un deuxième médecin, je m'en suis tiré avec un infiltration de Synvisc. Cela vaut la peine de visionner l'émission Enquete, qui parle de ce charlatan. Votre site est important, il peut mettre en garde le public contre des charlatans
I was extremely pleased with the experience I had replacing one knee and repairing the other at Duval Clinique. The team communicated fluently with me in English, although the working language in the clinic is French. Only knee, hip and shoulder replacements are done in this surgery/hospital/physio clinic setting. I stayed six days and had both knees treated at the same time, saving both in time and travel expenses. I found the care to be excellent and the food delicious. The doctor took several hours to describe options and procedures available to me, and checked frequently after the surgery to make certain I was doing well. My medical information and physio requirements were sent to my primary doctor in Calgary to ensure continuity of care. Thanks to Doctors Duval and Lavoie for their compassion and professionalism. - G. Drysdale, Calgary, Alberta
Le Dr. Nicolas Duval m'a opéré des 2 genoux (prostheses completes bi-laterals) le 23 septembre dernier. Il a fait un miracle. Quelle dextérité, la job est parfait. Je marche déja depuis plus de 2 semaines sans aucun appui. Oui, ça fait mal... mais, je marche enfin. Merci Dr. Duval. Je lui mets un 10/10.
I had a 'macerated' tear of the lateral meniscus of my left knee. My knee would lock or give out unexpectedly. Finally, I fell and fractured my left ankle, and realized surgery would be necessary. I consulted two orthopods, who didn't take the time to explain my options (rude!). I was referred to Dr. Duval, who has his own operating facility in Laval. I obtained a rapid appointment; the staff was friendly and efficient; Dr. Duval explained the procedure he would be doing by arthroscopy (yay! small incisions! informed consent!). I was scheduled rapidly (before cycling season). I am scared of needles, blood, you name it; he was remarkably patient with me (whew!). I was able to observe the procedure on-screen, with my husband at my side. I was able to walk (limp) out; I was training within 10 days, and three weeks later, I was doing 60 km on my bike (what a relief!). My mobility is 100% in less than 4 weeks. Boy, do I ever recommend Dr. Duval if your mobility is important to you!
