Complex knee revision surgery needed. Dr Stolarski is a very experienced surgeon yet he’s so down to earth personable. Trust him tons. Patient and constrained. He won’t rush you through the office visit.

Dr. Stolarski gave me such a better life with two new knees, one 12/17 and the other 12/18. No more braces and pain meds. I am walking and going up and down stairs with no problem. Thanks to Dr. Stolarski and his wonderful team I have vacations to plan and places to go.

Dr. Stolarski did an excellent surgery on my hip replacement, he is professional but also personal and makes you feel very comfortable. I am more than happy with the results and would recommend him to all friends and family. His staff was very friendly and my husband appreciated the contact Dr. Stolarski made with him after the surgery. Our experience with Dr. Stolarski and his staff was excellent.

I’m given little space for this review. So 2 important points: The office is run like a factory assembly line. I saw Dr Stolarski for a very short introduction prior to my total hip replacement. He was nice but his staff are not interested in patients with residual pain issues post op. Pre op you are scheduled by weight. I’m not obese but my surgery was last of the day regardless of my explicit request for early am. 1.5 years later I’m still in pain. The rest of the review doesn’t matter.

I could barely walk and when I did you could hear a grinding. My pain was excruciating and it turned out both hips were shot and the grinding was the sound of bone on bone. Dr. Stolarski explained what had happened to my hips and how he would go about replacing both. My surgeries went well and Dr. Stolarski was always available before and after surgery. My new hips are great and I feel fortunate that I found Dr. Stolarski.

As a surgeon, Dr. Stolarski is allegedly 'the best.' And he's the first to tell you that. He spends very little time with his patients, passing us off to Nurse Practitioner(s) as quickly as possible. His pompous sense of 'entitlement' was SUCH a turnoff that I dropped him like a rock. ( but as he's rather short he didn't have far to fall) I 'suppose' his 'hype' is true, but as a human being-he's an insufferable Twit.

Dr Stolarski revised my original knee replacement surgery. After the first one, I was unable to walk without pain and discomfort even after 5 months. He revised the previous doctor's work. After just two weeks after the revision, the results were amazing! I am now able to walk, jog, play golf -- enjoy my life. Thanks, doc!

High volume does not mean top care. Too rushed, poor follow up

Dr. Stolarski did a hip replacement. Before surgery, he was concerned about my Fibromyalgia causing MUCH more pain. He promised to keep me comfortable while in the hospital. The pain was a 15 out of 10! After surgery, I NEVER saw him again. Only his PA, James. He took me off the IV the day after surgery though I was crying, screaming, begging him not to. Dr. S. is all about who's NEXT. Not the patient's comfort. I need another hip done, but it WON'T be by HIM!

Two weeks ago, Dr. Stolarski performed hip replacement surgery. I am an active 67 year old and yoga teacher. I have been in pain with every step I took and even at rest. My lack of range of motion reduced my ability to participate in anything I liked to do. It came to the point where I couldn't bend to put my shoe on. Post surgery, I never had any pain from day one. I am so grateful to the doctor and his team. I am driving, walking without cane, and learning to regain my confidence.

I am a 67 year old male who underwent a hip replacement performed by Dr. Stolarski. The surgery went perfectly. I had no post-op pain and I am now 3 weeks out and walking without a cane. This is the first time that I have ever written any kind of review but I wanted to let anyone who is interested that Dr. Stolarski and his team are the best..

Dr. Stolarski is wonderful. My sister, who had hip replacement surgery about 8 years ago, warned me how painful this operation was going to be. This was not my experience at all. Dr. Stolarski’s anterior approach was the best. The incision is only about 5 inches. The pain was really manageable. I was up and walking the same week. I am so glad I chose Dr. Stolarski to fix my hip.

The office has great artwork (photographs). That aside he and the staff were bad news -- as was my outcome. Their in-house physical therapist was also awful. Take my advice and steer clear of this physician and this office.

Heard nothing great things about Dr. Stolarski and he 100% lived up to his reputation. His staff and PAs should share this compliment as well as the nurses, aides and PTs at Sarasota Memorial. My hip replacement op took 25 minutes, and I was in my room and walking around (with a walker) 4 hours later! Doesn't get better than this.

When it comes to someone sawing off part of your hip and then reassembling you, you don't want just any surgeon. I wanted someone who knew the procedure inside out. Just google Dr Stolarski and you'll get a wealth of information. It's 17 days since my hip replacement and I'm back to walking again on my own. I'm glad I found him.

Dr. Stolarski came very highly recommended and I would do so as well. He is tops in his field and has an excellent staff. The bouquet of roses the day after surgery was very nice coming from a surgeon! My only complaint was that I had an issue with blood work and he told me to follow up with his office and when I called a few days later they did not have a clue what I was talking about. Finally got the results when I had my staples removed. He made it seem important, perhaps it was not.
