Dr. Stover was recommended by another Orthopedic surgeon as the best trauma surgeon in the Chicago area to give me the best odds of returning to a normal life after a bad skiing accident. It took several surgeries to repair several fractures, but he was thorough, informative and compassionate every step of the way. There were some disappointments, but I always knew ahead of time that there were no guarantees and it would be a difficult road ahead. He never gave up on consulting with others and offering options for subsequent surgeries to make things better. I walk today on my own 2 legs without pain and very close to normal walking gait. A far cry from the original surgery from the original surgeon in another hospital that left me in a wheel chair and his prognosis that my life would probably never be normal again.
