Great experience
Dr Stolarski gave me two new hips and with that he also gave me my life and career back. I'm ever grateful for him and his expertise. I would highly recommend him and his team. Be aware that with surgery mindset is a huge thing. Get your head in the game, be a proper weight and train as best you can to make the surgical process easier.

Outstanding & Understanding Surgeon.
When I first met Dr Stolarski my left leg was in severe hyperextension and my ankle rolled over when I walked. I could not walk on grass and even carpet was difficult. My condition was amplified due to severe calf and knee ligament weakness. I was reduced to using a wheelchair on occasions & using a cane even to walk to our patio. Prior to deciding on the surgery I had tried different knee braces and interviewed five different surgeons from Tampa to Miami. Dr Stolarski was the one that exuded a quiet and reassuring confidence that the surgery would be successful. After our discussion I had no hesitation or concerns about moving forward with the surgery. It has been 9 months after the surgery, my walker and two canes are in the past. I walk around the home and outside (depending on the surface) without a cane and continue to make progress. A life changing surgery, I could not be happier. I would have no hesitation in recommending Dr Stolarski to anyone!!

Great experience all around, very happy!
I was told Dr. Stolarski was worth the wait and he certainly was! His engineering skills were evident when he reviewed my case and described the procedure. He made sure I had tried everything else and was not just jumping into surgery. I had a lot of concern and anxiety until I met with him. I had an anterior hip replacement at 7 am in April and I was home for lunch. I am now back to normal and playing tennis.

experience today with Dr Stolarski
I chose Dr Stolarski because of his great reputation. I was not disappointed. He made me feel very comfortable in planning my knee surgery. At the age of 78 I was not looking forward to surgery until the doctor spent time talking to me and planning out something I am comfortable with.

Knee replacement
Dr Stolarski is the best surgeon you will find. He replaced my wife's hip joint. My daughter's knee and my son in law's knee now mine. I have recommended him to numerous friends. We are all very satisfied with the results.

Pre-op first meeting with Dr Stolarski
Dr Stolarski was very reassuring and answered every one of the many questions I had about my upcoming hip replacement surgery. My husband and I were in agreement that he’s the relatable kind of guy we could imagine being friends with. All very positive.

I experienced a pre-surgical consult with Dr. Stolarski to confer regarding my upcoming left knee replacement in early May. He educated me on the benefits of knee replacement and I was able to question him on post surgical procedures such as physical therapy. He was extremely friendly and patient with me. Thank you Dr. Stolarski!
