I am a board certified orthopaedic surgeon and have specialized in spinal surgery for over 20 years. I am originally from Michigan and enjoy the close proximity from Northern Indiana. I chose South Bend Orthopaedics due to its solid reputation of providing excellent orthopaedic care for the community. I am married and we have four children. The entire family loves the water and we frequent the beaches and harbors of Lake Michigan. I’ve been known to try my hand at turkey hunting. Northern Indiana has been a wonderful place to practice and raise a family.

SBO Patient 7/16

Fixed my problem as far as care you are the best.

I like Dr. DeLeeuw however I think that he is overbooked and harried therefore does not seem to be giving the utmost care to his patients of late.

SBO Patient 7/15
I believe in my doctor 100 percent. He really does try to be helpful and understanding of whatever I have a problem with. Thank You Dr. D.

SBO Patient 7/15
Dr.DeLeeuw, is a very caring man. He showed a lot of Interest in my case, took the time to study the MR I and also consulted with colleagues to be sure this surgery was necessary and the right thing for my case. What a wonderful person to take my case.

SBO Patient 7/15
This was my 1st time meeting/talking to him. I felt the exchange went pretty well considering he (apparently) had not seen or been briefed on my medical history from the on-line forms that were filled out prior to our face to face meeting.

SBO Patient 6/15
I feel extremely lucky to have picked Dr. DeLeeuw. He has a gift in making his patient comfortable and after speaking with him, I felt total confidence in him and his knowledge in my medical problems. I highly recommend him to anyone I speak to who has a similar spine problem.

SBO Patient 6/15
He was very personable, friendly & understood my concerns. Took the time to answer all my questions. He gave the answers that were direct with all questions.

SBO Patient 6/15
Over all a good experience. Perhaps a bit rushed. This was a recheck for my issue, but first visit with new Dr. He answered all my questions, and even commented if I was to get worse that I may need to switch to the newest Dr. coming on staff for my issues.

SBO Patient 5/15

I liked Dr. DeLeeuw.

 SBO Patient 10/14

Dr.DeLeeuw is a caring, concerned and competent physician.

SBO Patient 9/14
I was pretty close to the last patient and I felt he didn't take much time with me. He told me at the appt before this one he would do an X-ray, but didn't mention it this time. I felt he couldn't say what needed to be done without a new x-ray.

SBO Patient 9/14
He has been her doctor for years.

SBO Patient 8/14
I absolutely love Dr. Deleeuw. He has done 2 surgeries on my back and seen me for many years. I have total confidence in him and his option, job, and expertise. He has always been kind, caring, warm, funny and honest and open with me. He answers my questions and explains the problems and possible treatments in detail so I can understand it. I would recommend anyone to him and have. I do not want anyone else working on my spine if at all possible.

SBO Patient 8/14
Although he didn't spend much time with me answering questions, I felt that he definitely knew what he was doing.

SBO Patient 8/14
I felt the Dr. does not listen to me as he seemed rushed. I am feeling much better, however, so he is a great Dr.

SBO Patient 7/14
Dr DeLeeuw has a comfortable manner with patients.

SBO Patient 7/14
Understanding the volume of patients Dr. DeLeeuw sees and I appreciate the time he took with me. As an engineer, I want to understand everything and all interdependencies (I know...sorry). He was great in walking me thru the mechanics of my condition, what options are, what to expect for recovery etc. Great job here! I really appreciate the level of detail.

SBO Patient 6/14
The Doctor was friendly, professional, and made me feel my problem would be helped.

SBO Patient 6/14
Dr was behind schedule 45min - that was OK as I took a nice walk outside for exercise while I waited.

SBO Patient 5/14
Your docs and nurses are excellent.

SBO Patient 5/14
No problems and very helpful.

SBO Patient 4/14
I have had 7 or 8 visits and all were outstanding in all areas. My confidence in Dr. DeLeeuw is as high as I can rate it. He is very professional and makes the patient feel at ease with the procedure.

SBO Patient 3/14
Doctor was running over 1 hour behind on apt.

SBO Patient 1/14
I misread my appointment time and called to find out that I was already late by 10 minutes. I asked if I could still come in and they checked with the doctor and they said it would be ok, they were running late and they would squeeze me in. I was very pleased!

SBO Patient 12/13
Very satisfied, that’s why I come here instead of a local doctor in my area.

SBO Patient 12/13
As I have already stated, the friendliness/courtesy of the doctor was above that of the average physician. He explained my situation & conditions completely and thoroughly. I was always included in decision-making matters and I understood even the most clinical terms due to my own extremely high intelligence! Plenty of time was spent with me in the office. I have been recommending people to Dr. DeLeeuw since 2008.

SBO Patient 10/13
Had good sound advice of the problem and solution.

SBO Patient 10/13
Dr. Henry Deeleuw and Dr. Jeff Yergler rock!

SBO Patient 2/13
I felt so confident that I recommended him to a friend.

SBO Patient 2/13
The doctor showed me that the MRI showed a problem and told me that I would have to let him know when the pain was bad enough for him to do something about. He did not prescribe any meds at this time.
