Ratings for Dr. Ivan Wong
Absolute genius at understanding and explaining shoulder problems. I have had two surgeries and the docs couldn't keep my shoulder in joint and then wanted to filet me open to fix it. Dr. Wong was able to fix this with just the camera and put a bone graft into a tiny hole. My shoulder is almost as good as new now. Would highly recommend to anyone.
Great Doc. Very knowledgeable and made me feel cofindent he could help me, but wait times are ridiculous and he's always off schedule. His staff is great. Kate in his office was so sweet to me and so helpful. Overall, great experience with him and his team.
Had a nasty break of my tibia and fibula resulting from a motorcycle accident. He fixed it up and now I am good as new. I must say the nurse in recovery at the Hamilton General was burned out. I should have told him, she gave me my pain med in 1cc incraments which did nothing to alleviate the pain of the 2" screw in my leg. When I asked for more she asked me if I was on recreational drugs. I was terrified of her because the pain was unbearable and she was playing a power trip. I should have reported her, so if this happens to you, tell Dr Wong, he is the best.
This doc is extremely busy. afterbwaiting in the siting room for a long time I met him and his students. He was very caring and explained to me the difficulty of trying to preserve my hip. I have a lot of confidence in his explanations and he even told me when he didn't know something for sure. I'm really impressed. But I'm still nervous for surgery.
Traveled halfway around the world to meet this Doc. Worth every penny. Was able to rebuild my shoulder. Now I can sleep again without pain. It did take a long time to heal like he said it would, and I definitely did my part for rehab... again like he said it would. Would recommend to everyone I like.
Probably the most knowledgable doctor I've ever had. Got referred because everyone else said nothing could be done. He showed me the massive tear I had and how he could rebuild it from scratch. Amazing. And he even recorded it for me. Just amazing
This man repaired my hip issue which was from birth when I was younger (at the qe2) he is an amazing, knowledgeable & very respectful doctor. 4 years ago I had my surgery & my other hip has yet to start to deteriorate. He is great but a little busy and off schedule.
I have had been told my hips were bad and to live with it until my hip replacements. I'm 31. Finally I was referred to dr wong and he showed me the problem and how he could fix it through small incisions with a camera. I wish more people would learn what he does so we can see him sooner and not have as much pain before.
Dr. Wong discovered that my right hip injury was much worse than he expected (as revealed by the xray & mri). He went in believing it was a straight-forward femoral & acetabular osteoplasty & labral repair. He was shocked by what he found, but he repaired what he could, with what he had available at the time. I go back to see him next week, to talk about our next steps...as there is extensive damagethat will require further intervention. I am very pleased with his knowledge and approach, as well as his straight-forward honesty about my condition. Great surgeon, all around. Even though I will likely require a total hip replacement, I would recommend him to anyone. Very professional.
I've had my shoulder repaired twice and twice it has failed. Dr Wong fixed it completely trough micro surgery with a graft and even filmed it for me. It was amazing. Already it feels like I can go back to hockey and it's only been a week. Very skilled surgeon.
