in Sandy, Ut |
I felt like Dr Novak was as much my friend and he was my Doctor. I had a hip replacement and he took the time to explain exactly what my problem was, how the procedure would be performed, what the recovery time would be and what I could expect long term. It went just as he had explained with no surprises. In fact, it was much less traumatic and painful than I had anticipated. I would recommend him highly and he will be my choice if I need the other hip done.

Dr. Novak described what was involved with the surgery. Provided good information regarding post surgical recovery and what to expect.. Very satisfied with the surgery.

Dr. Novak was very good to explain what surgery he was going to do and what the recovery would be like. His assistant was very helpful through the entire process as well.

An incredible physician and person and best orthopedic surgeon I have come in contact with! Fixed my hips and shoulder and am back climbing, trekking to Everest, backcountry skiing and cycling! (He does all these activities as well so appreciates an older guy's need to keep on moving!)
in Haiku, HI |
I met Dr Novak when I was unable to find a surgeon here on Maui to repair my injured shoulder. A friend recommended him, and my experience was incredibly positive. Not only is he a tremendously talented surgeon, he's also a kind and generous person. The appointment was made, and surgery performed in less than a week, and that included a 6 thousand mile round trip. Following rehab, my shoulder is painless, has a larger range of motion and more strength than it had for years. A GREAT DOC!

I have recommended 3 individuals to Dr. Novak. Like mine, they experienced very successful outcomes.

the Dr replaced two knees and both had to be revised within 18 months due to pain and instability.
