I've had 4 Orthopedic Surgeon's since I was 16 (Motorbike Accident). Dr. Greidanus and the Fellows at VGH's Complex Joint Clinic are amazing.

Dr. G is the very best. He replaced my left hip 5 years ago and now my right hip on September 2nd 2016. I was 55 years old for the first hip and 60 with this hip. Dr. G was superb throughout both procedures. He (in my opinion) is unusual for a Surgeon. He took his time explaining everything to me; was kind; laughed easily and made me feel that everything was going to be better than ever before. And, that is exactly how it turned out…both times. Dr. G is a wonderful Orthopedic Surgeon and an even nicer human being. Like others, I rate him highly…a 12 out of 10!

Dr. G. Nice guy, knows orthopedics and knows exactly what needs to be completed. Thoughtful and funny! Did a great job on my knee replacement. Wait was very short here too see him when Victoria orthos were saying wait 5 -10 years before replacement. Dr. G said no, its toast and needs to happen now! 10 out of 10. Thank you Nelson!

Generally disappointed with Dr G. Knowledge and rep are great but made me feel on first consultation that he had more important matters and was hurrying me out the door. Waited 18 months and 90 minutes in office for about an 8 minute consultation. Another surgeon who retired (unfortunatley) spent close to an hour in 2 appts going over everything. Post op in hospital 3 days never once checked in on me (sent resident). Post op waited 5 months to see him and got about 5 minutes. Again he made me feel like he was in a hurry. Also kept calling me "Pal" which is a bit weird. Beware: He is a teaching doctor and is always working with residents so chances are he will be supervising the surgery not actually doing it

I continue to have the utmost faith in Dr Greidanus. He has done my hips and 3 weeks ago replaced my husband's right knee. Extremely successful surgery as he is now walking without any supports. Thanks to Dr G and Lydia for expediting the procedure - 2 1/2 months from referral to surgery. We were looking at 12-18 months wait once he saw a surgeon here in Victoria. I am referring so many from the Island to him for that reason.

I cannot say enough positive about Dr. Greidanus and his assistant Lydia. From the moment I dealt with Lydia regarding my appointment, to my surgery and post-care, I was given incredible care and respect. What an excellent team and thank you for your compassion at a most difficult time.
