I have been offered surgery in many places for my hips since I was trying to be a professional athlete. I even travelled to the US where they said I needed surgery. I did go to Vail, and did have my surgery done but the pain continued after surgery. I searched out Dr. Wong since I heard he had great skills. He did an amazing job at repairing my labrum that didn't heal and then repaired my cartilage too. I'm early in my recovery but I can already feel a difference and that the pain I had before has gone away.

I went in with hip pain, expecting to be told it was a part of life but instead was told I needed surgery on both sides. I am a runner and in training for a marathon. Dr. Wong sent me to physio to give me my best shot at being strong enough for a marathon and surgery. I'm on a waiting list for both hips. Having to wait 1-3 years is frustrating but not the fault of Dr. Wong or his team.

Best surgeon I've met. Was honest about what he saw on the MRI, and told me what he thought the realistic outcomes would be. Sure enough, I'm better that what he predicted. He showed me the surgery on video. Great experience. Long rehab, but it has been a long overdue injury. Highly recommended

Amazing skills. Watched my surgery and see exactly where my pain was coming from. I knew it would work because he gave me a numbing injection before and it took my pain away.

My hip has been hurting for a long time. Was sent to the states originally because no one in canada would operate on me. Dr Wong said it would be difficult but agreed to be my surgeon. I'm glad we have such a skilled and amazing doctor in canada. My hip surgery was just last week and I can already tell my pain from before is gone. Just wish there were more like him!

Waited a long time for surgery. 3 years from the time I saw him. Glad I did. My shoulder now works again! He is he best. I'm so happy when everyone else said it couldn't be done. I know why his wait is so long. It's worth it.

I have been wanting to get surgery by this doctor for over a year and a half and was told by Emily that it would be another 2 year wait. When I saw him the 2nd time he was too much in a rush to answer any of my questions, would not recommend this doctor

Saw dr Wong present on my shoulder problem. It is exactly what I have and the exact problems I am experiencing now. Wish I had gotten him to fix it before. Now am just waiting to see him and have my shoulder properly fixed.
