Every aspect of my experience with Dr. Cannova was as good as you can get from start to finish. He is thoroughly professional and gifted as a surgeon. After two years my knee has no pain and reacts like the original knee. Friends couldn’t believe how quickly I returned to my usual activities. Given that I had been an athlete in my youth and had fallen on that knee three times, it was in bad shape before the operation. No one would guess that to see me walk today.

My experience with Dr. Cannova was very good. However, he is very serious and does not smile much. His empathy is difficult to assess.

Dr Cannova is the best. He is super. I had my right total hip replacement done in November 2018. He not only is a five star but rather a superstar in the medical profession. Thank you for the fantastic operation.

This was my first visit to Dr. Cannova, and I was very impressed with how well organized and professional the office is! It runs like a well oiled machine. The doctor was friendly, professional and patient with all of my questions regarding knee replacement surgery. I was petrified, but I am now looking forward to it. They also gave me an information packet about the surgery, which is very helpful.

Dr. Cannova replaced my hip. He came highly recommended and the operation went very smoothly. The out-patient facilities in Chevy Chase where my surgery was performed were super. The process of scheduling pre-op and post-op appointments was made easy by his staff and the online check-in system worked well for me. I would highly recommend Dr. Cannova.

I would, without hesitation, recommend Dr. Cannova to friends & family I have been singing his praises since dismissal from hospital; and actually have recommended him strongly to my Home Care Physical Therapist. He is in need of a knee. Excellent communication, thorough preparation of the patient for the event, and genuine enthusiasm for the patient's well-being & progress during the recovery/healing phase, lend valuable texture to the profile of this highly skilled and dedicated surgeon.
