Had been suffering with shoulder pain for quite awhile. Did PT, which seemed to make it worse. Dr. Sostak gave me a cortisone injection in the joint and that has helped SO much. Had been sleeping in my recliner chair. Now, I’m back sleeping I. My bed!!!??

Tremendous rotator cuff surgery! Dr Sostak is personable, caring, a gray educator and involves you in your options. My bicep was separated in addition to several tears. He explained it all and is very protective for my recovery! Thanks Doc!

Dr. Sostak recently performed my rotator cuff surgery and it couldn’t have gone any smoother. The surgical staff were excellent and put me at ease. Very minimal post-op pain and on the road to recovery.

Dr.Sostak is an amazing person, his bed side manner is great! He is one of a few physicians/Surgeon's who will take time to listen to you and your concerns and explain every detail to you! In 2019 he repaired a badly torn meniscus on my left knee. Now my left knee feels better than my right!! He is a fantastic surgeon!!! He did such a great job on my knee, that he is now going to fix my shoulder which has a torn labrum and a torn rotator cuff. Knowing his skills from my knee surgery he will absolutely have me back in fighting shape in no time!!! To put it plainly is is one of the very few surgeons that actually care about his patients health and well being!!

Excellent Doctor. Great pre-surgery exam and explanation of procedure. Surgery went well. Recovery and rehabilitation was thorough and comprehensive. Follow-up was good. I would recommend FVO for any Ortho issue.

Dr. Sostak preformed surgery on me less than a week ago. I was virtually pain free and could not have asked for a better surgeon! Had the same procedure done a few years back from another surgeon at Fox Valley Orthopedics with great results too but due to his obvious skill I am having a miraculous recovery and could not be happier!

Met Dr. Sostak after a referral from my ortho doctor and PA (also with Fox Valley Ortho) to discuss shoulder replacement surgery. Having been through several ortho surgeries over my 50 years, I came prepared with a large list of questions for him. Over 75% of my questions were answered before I had to ask them by either him or his nurse in just the first 15 minutes of reviewing MRI results and explaining the surgery. He was not afraid to get more technical when I asked for more info, and he and his nurse both presented an easy to follow timeline from start to finish. Looking forward to my replacement in a couple weeks!

I came to Dr. Sostak for a work related hip arthroscopy labrum repair. I was recommended by Dr. Petsche, and am glad I was. On top of excellent care, I was never made to feel less than, or like a burden because of the fact that they had to deal with worker's comp. His surgical team were kind, knowledgeable, and Dr. Sostak himself gave me and my family pictures from the arthroscopy that he'd written on to explain them. He checked in on me before I left the surgical center to make sure that I'd been taken care of and given any and all info and equipment that I needed to continue care at home. He made me feel comfortable and taken care of through the whole process, and I really can't recommend him enough. Fox Valley Ortho as a whole is incredible, but I have had the best experience with Dr. Sostak.
