“Dr. Hedderman is a pro with a great personality. A telling factor relative to his value to the practice is his relationship with the Center's staff; there is an obvious comfort level and mutual respect that confirms my belief that I'm relying on the right physician for my orthopaedic needs. He is responsive, practical and thorough. He also handles busy days methodically making sure that his patients get what they need. I haven't seen him walk on water yet but I have been seen by many practitioners in my seventy years; he's easily at the top of my 'good list.'”

“When I finally admitted that my knee was in rough shape I knew I would like to be seen by a knee specialist in this practice. Dr. Cheney was wonderful when taking care of my back so I had great hopes of finding the same care for my knee. Both my husband and I were very happy with the care I received in the office, from my first consult & X-rays with Dr. Bannon where your staff was pleasant and kind. To the informative doctor's visit, it was a good experience. Included in my first visit was a trip to the casting area where I was givenkenalog (sp) shots in both knees, your tech ( wish I could recall his name) was patient, informative and took the time when he saw how nervous I was about the shots. Since my last experience having cortisone shots was in another practice and they were quite uncomfortable I was concerned. Your tech explained how he would administer the shots & how to care for the knee afterwards, Wonderful experience this time around. My consult for surgery with Dr. Hedderman was a great office visit, the doctor explained what I needed to have done & then Patti ( scheduling secretary) came in set up the surgery date and from there explained each step I had to take to prepare for the TKR. Dr. Hedderman took the time to answer each of my questions ( there were a few !! ) & alleviate the fears I had going into this surgery. Surgery was at St Peter's both the hospital stay ( from pre-op to discharge) results were wonderful & after putting this surgery off for so long (20 years) Dr. Hedderman did a fantastic job and I am thrilled with my new knee. I highly recommend Dr. Hedderman seeing as he is doing my second TKR this fall speaks for itself.”

“Dr. Hedderman and his staff are the best. He is kind and understanding. Also, when I was at The Bone & Joint Center, he was right there when I needed him. St. Peter's Hospital and their staff were wonderful too. I had total knee surgery in feb-2016 and I am going back for my other knee. Just the thought of knowing I will be able to walk again without pain in my knees is so great. I'm looking forward to doing so much more in my life again. And thanks to Dr. Hedderman and all the people in the hospital and The Bone & Joint Center, I thank you. You're great.”
– Donna L.
“The entire procedure and follow-up went as well as I could have expected. The doctors, nurses, and staff were very professional, efficient, courteous, accessible and responsive. My knee has healed quickly and well. I would highly recommend Dr. Hedderman and his team to anyone contemplating knee replacement surgery.”
– Andrew G.
“I have seen almost all of the attending doctors at The Bone & Joint Center. My whole family goes there. For 20 years, starting with Dr. M. Alley and Dr. D. Quinn, they treated me together for a crushed elbow, every bone was broke in it plus a left wrist fracture from a fall. They fixed it (they did not believe it would move correctly or I would be able to return to work as a medical transcriptionist postoperatively, but I did.) Over the next 20 years, I have broken maybe 15 bones all over my body, plus have severe arthritis throughout. Just recently had a total knee replacement, last year the other was done. The group is not sure how my body is surviving all the trauma, but with their care, I am still working as a medical transcriptionist to date.”
– Kathleen B.
“Great results of total left knee replacement. Dr. Hedderman was just fantastic. Walked me through the entire process and was very kind with encouragement.”
– Randy B.
“I have been a long term patient of Dr. Hedderman. Over the years, he has gradually repaired and rebuilt me and he's not yet finished. I have had both hips replaced, arthroscopic surgery on both knees, and surgery on both shoulders. We will be replacing both knees in the years to come. Over these past years, he has been able to keep me going. I'm a distance swimmer and a regular golfer and neither sport would be possible if it wasn't for Dr. Hedderman. He keeps me going.”
