Dr. Jove's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Jove "Nathan Jové, M.D. is a third generation orthopedic surgeon. Dr. Jové has followed in the footsteps of his grandfather, Dr. Julio Jové, and his father, Dr. Maurice Jové. Dr. Jové earned his undergraduate degree in chemistry from Emory University. He received his medical degree from Temple University School of Medicine in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Dr. Jové then trained at the Detroit Medical Center where he worked for a significant portion of his training at Detroit Receiving Hospital – the largest trauma center in Detroit. Dr. Jové trained with physicians who took care of the Detroit Tigers, Detroit Pistons and Detroit Red Wings. Dr. Jové has presented his research all over the country, including a prestigious opportunity for an oral presentation at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons Annual Conference in March 2013. He was given the honor of Chief Resident for his program throughout his final year of residency. Recently, Dr. Jové has performed the first outpatient Total Joint Replacements at Dekalb Medical Center. Working with their Joints Solutions Center, Dr. Jové has started the era of outpatient total joint surgery at Dekalb Medical. Dr. Jové will also help Eastside Medical develop their outpatient total joints program. Dr. Jové is also in charge of developing the Hip Fracture Program at Dekalb Medical Center to expedite the care of elderly with hip fractures. As an expert in hip fractures, Dr. Jové's initiatives will lead to shorter hospital stays, decreased complications and better hospital preparation and management of these patients. If you're at Dekalb Medical Center or Eastside Medical Center and have a hip fracture, you'll know who to ask for!"

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Jove "I believe in conservative (non-operative) management for all conditions I treat, if possible. I do not treat X-rays, I treat patients. I believe the best outcomes are when things are done using evidence based practices. I listen to patients and believe 90% of the diagnosis is made by listening to my patients. I never want an unhappy patient in my waiting room and strive to ensure the best possible outcome for every patient I see. "

Patient Comments (14)

Dr Jove fixed my rotator cuff arthroscopically after someone else had done an open repair that failed. My incisions are small, and he fixed what the other doctor couldn’t do with open. Highly recommend him

Dr. Nathan Jove did my complex knee revision. Every other doctor said it couldn't be done. But he took on the challenger and I am doing great. I have come a long way and he was patient while also motivating. Best dr I have met because he's a down to earth person and a really talented surgeon.
