Dr Bauwens is the best. He has been my doctor for more than 20 years. He has done 2 of my back surgeries and 1 knee surgery. I could not ask for a better doctor. I moved to Arizona but still see Dr. Bauwens. He will take the time to answer your questions. He is great. I trust him totally. Dr Bauwens has compassion. He is the best orthopedic surgeon ever.
