I was very pleased with Dr. Stover and his resident, Dr. Mehta. From reception throughout the appointment, everything was handled very professionally. Doctors Stover and Mehta did complete examinations and thoroughly explained my diagnosis. The entire appointment was first class. Luckily, I do not need to have any surgery, however, if I did I would not hesitate to use Dr Stover. I highly recommend him.

I'm 35 and I was diagnosed with AVN. It turned out that at the stage I was in I needed a full hip replacement on my left side. I went to see many doctors to get their opinions but Dr.Stover hands down won me over. He took his time to talk to me unlike other doctors I went to see. His knowledge and experience was incredible. Karen who works with Dr. Stover was very knowledgeable as well, extremely nice and very reassuring. They make a great team and gained my trust immediately.

Very professional and helpful team. They kept in touch with me prior and after the surgery everyday by message which I found very helpful. Any question or concern I had was quickly answered and resolved. Dr Stover clearly explained my options and set my expectations. The hip replacement was much less painful than I expected and much more mobility than expected right after the surgery.. I would and have recommended Dr Stover and his team to family and friends.

Dr. Stover and his team amazed me. The surgery was surprising ly easy, recovery very rapid, incision very small and neatly done. They didn’t miss a beat in the process and listened, cared, followed up with a level of detail I would have thought impossible. On a scale from 1-10 - Dr. Stover and his team are 11!

I had my hip done last November and it has been a nightmare for the past seven months. I am so thankful I found Dr. Stover and his team. They are extremely professional and efficient and I am amazed at the amount of usable information I have been given. I know everything that was going to be done and it was explained in laymens terms. I have emailed with several questions since the procedure and they have ALWAYS gotten back to me almost immediately. I would definitely recommend him and his team.

The reviews I read mirror my experience with Dr. Stover. Gifted surgeon, comsumate professional, - very talented, disciplined and yet personable. I am thrilled I did my research and chose the best in the country to replace my hip. A year out, ea h day I praise God and Dr. Stover for the gift of pain-free mobility. I hadn't realized what had been lost until I experience life and it's works!

I'm absolutely thrilled with my entire surgical experience with Dr. Stover and his team! From the very first appointment until now, I have been treated professionally, compassionately, and with an expertise that continually put me totally at ease. Dr. Stover advocates the anterior approach for a total hip replacement. Now that I've experienced both the posterior (7 years ago) and anterior, I am a huge advocate as well! My recovery has been flawless (AND Dr. Stover checks in daily via email)!

My first surgery took place twelve weeks ago, total hip replacement. I could not be more pleased with the outcome. Dr. Stover, his staff, and Northwestern have been organized, efficient, and skilled. I've been pain free from day 1, with zero complications to date. THAT'S what mattered to me the most. Bottom line: Dr. Stover did a wonderful job and performed with surgical skill when I needed it the most. Thank You Dr. Stover, Staff, and Northwestern Memorial Hospital!.
