Dr. Scott Stanley, MD
My spine surgery practice is focused on complex disorders of the cervical and lumbar spine, disc replacement, microsurgical techniques, stem cell therapy, scoliosis and revision spine surgery. I attended Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine followed by an orthopedic surgery residency at the same institution. I am fellowship trained in adult and pediatric spine surgery and board-certified by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery, subspecialized in Spine Surgery. I treat a broad spectrum of spinal disorders. I enjoy seeing patients with neck and low back conditions, including sciatica, stenosis, herniated discs, scoliosis, spondylolisthesis, degenerative disc disease, tumor reconstruction, and fractures. My practice offers individualized care with non-operative options, as well as traditional and minimally-invasive surgical techniques. I am a Fellow of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons and an active member of the North American Spine Society. I hold multiple U.S. and international patents in spinal implant design and am a frequent presenter in my field. I enjoy sharing my motivation with others and have received the Parker Adventist Hospital Humanitarian Award for my voluntary work in Inner Mongolia to treat underserved patients and educate local surgeons.

I would recommend Dr. Stanley to anyone needing s attention to their spine. He performed my surgery 5 weeks ago on 4 vertebrae in my neck and the pain is drastically reduced, just the usual post surgery aches and pains from surgery. The sharp pains are gone along with the headaches. I was very anxious about the surgery but he was reassuring and encouraging. I'm happy I had it done. He answered my questions took time to explain how things were going to be done and how things worked.

I can't recommend Dr. Stanley highly enough. Not only is he an excellent doctor, but he is caring and compassionate too. I had been having lower back problems for over a year and seen several orthopedic and neuro doctors. They ran tests and performed some non-surgical procedures, but none of them took the time to really LISTEN to my story. My medical problem was much worse that what the MRI showed, and Dr. Stanley did a great job of getting me patched-up. Go see Dr. Stanley first!

CrossFit injuries resulted in failed neck fusion from a previous surgeon and no disc left at L5, S1. After much consultation with Dr. Stanley we started with a successful revision of my neck. A year later, all options exhausted, we moved forward with a fusion of L5, S1. I don't say this lightly, Dr. Stanley has changed my life. The only thing exceeding his bedside manner and genuine concern for my wellbeing is his surgical skill. I will forever be indebted to this gifted and amazing Doctor.

Dr. Stanley performed a spinal fusion L5-S1 April 2010 and I have been pain free ever since. This was a condition that most likely was genetic and after seeing my grandmother never leave her chair- I was not going to end up the same. Dr. Stanley was warm, caring and very supportive. The follow up appointments were scheduled efficiently and I never had to wait for more than a few minutes. Sept 2016 saw me back in their office with a torn meniscus in my left knee, same level of excellent care
Thank you for your kind words.

Good explanation beforehand for T-region fusion and very good experience overall--until after the surgery. Experiencing back pain(s) due to installed screws/hardware. Had therapeutic injections: first time, no relief, second time, great relief! Called same day of injections and left a msg with med asst to see, "okay, what's next"--"do I need a followup appt for next shots?" After no response (and 15 days) I called back to inquire. Told I left no msg. I'm off to find another doctor.

By far the WORST experience I have ever had at a doctors office. Never see Dr. Stanley. They are very rude and they do not follow-up even after three weeks of my calling them to figure out what was taking so long. THREE WEEKS! They scheduled me for an appointment that I did NOT confirm with them, then refused to see me saying I missed an appointment. I don't know how I can miss an appointment that I did not schedule or confirm, but somehow I did and now I have to find a new doctor.
