      I am impressed with how humble and kind Dr.Sporer is. His people skills are every bit as good as his surgical skills. He has an amazing team of professionals. I have had both my hips replaced by him. The experience has been 100 percent positive. I highly recommend him.

      Just had my left hip replaced by Dr. Sporer and he did a wonderful job. He's a very competent surgeon. His staff and team are all excellent as well and it's a very well run, efficient operation. I especially liked the daily text messages telling me about what I could or be experiencing, should be doing, giving me encouragement and explaining the recovery process along the way. Also provided a lot of literature to read. When I would call into the office with questions, I would leave a message and would promptly be called back by one of the Physician Assistants with an hour or less. I did my rehab at his office in Naperville at 55 Shuman Blvd. That also was a very well run group of physical therapists. They were all very friendly and caring group. I would definitely recommend him for anyone having hip surgery.

      Doctor replaced a 22year old hip and femur implant that wore out. The procedure was a revision and done without any problems usually expected with this kind of replacement. Excellent care before, during and after.

      Dr. Sporer is caring, takes time with his patients, and is an excellent surgeon. I am grateful I went to Dr. Sporer for my partial knee replacement. After four years of hobbling because of bone on bone pain, I am now pain free. You will receive the best possible care if you choose Dr. Sporer and his staff.

      I am really grateful for the recommendation of a friend that led to my initial visit to Dr. Sporer and ultimately to knee replacement surgery. Having the surgery was one of my best decisions. Dr. Sporer and his team are all focused on excellent patient care. Every question I had was answered quickly and completely, without feeling rushed. I also appreciated the technology available in Dr. Sporer's office and the efficiency of his support team. I also like the text message program they use to support the recovery process. It provided useful tips and links to exercises, guidance on main management, and milestones to help me gauge my progress. At this point in my recovery (6 weeks after surgery), my knee has better range of motion than it had for years prior to the operation. I still have additional work to do, but I am certain that I can achieve my goals.

      Dr Sporer replaced both my knees and my right hip over a period of 3 years. One joint a year. He did a fantastic job cause my quality of life is back. He is a wonderful doctor. This visit was a routine check that told me everything is like the day he replaced my joints.

      Got both hips replaced. First one very smooth, second a little more painful. Dr. Sporer was very professional and was very straight forward. My previous orthopedic physician after seeing me and referred me to specialist that said I wasn’t a candidate for hip rejuvenation, then wanted to see me again to discuss surgery that we had discussed previously during my two visits. That when I learned of Dr Sporer and his amazing team. I would rather go to someone who performs this surgery 300 times a year versus 50 a year because I sometimes can’t remember what I did last week. I went in with my X-rays they looked at them and examined me and agreed I needed both hips replaced. Their only question was how soon. I’m two weeks out from my last hip and am feeling better every day and can’t wait for my physical therapy to be over and doing all the things that I haven’t been able to do for several years. I won’t be 30 again but I’m hoping I’ll be able keep up with my young son.

      Dr. Sporer replaced my hip 6 weeks ago. His expert skill is evident by my status at this point—a 4” incision that is healed and a comfortable hip joint. His entire staff, informative website and 6 week text messaging were extremely helpful. He has my thanks and recommendation for anyone considering this surgery. I am 73 1/2 years old, and a happy Nana! Thank you!!
