Dr. Sterba is wonderful, easy to talk to, explains exactly what’s going on and what’s going to happen. Dr. Sterba and his team got me through my hip replacement surgery and all after care. Always there to answer any questions.

Dr. Sterba is very good at making you feel calm. He just tells you everything you need to know about your surgery. After surgery he makes sure you are doing well. Definitely I would recommend him to a family member or friend.

The doctor treats us with respect, has wonderful bedside manner and makes us feel like humans not another number on his to-do list. Every interaction is enjoyable, informative and given as much time as needed. On top of all that he’s a wonderful surgeon with compassion for the patient. Cant say enough great things!

Dr. Sterba is remarkable in both his skill and his treatment of patients. I’ve had both hips replaced and recently had my knee checked. He is so beautifully gentle in his approach and so attentive.

I have met Dr. Sterba in the office a number of times for various issues. He has always shown the utmost care, professionalism and knowledge every time. I spoke with some of his former knee replacement patients who are friends of mine, and they were extremely pleased and so was I with their outcome. I am only 1 week out of my surgery, and I have the confidence that I too will continue be extremely pleased.

Dr Sterba came highly recommended and lived up to his reputation! Direct and complete communication, excellent explanation of my situation and treatment options. Fast action on next steps with complete details on steps and time frames.

Listens, asks questions for clarity, explains the treatment options and recommends the option that he feels is best. I understand that ultimately I am in charge of my health care, but it is always good to feel that your doctor is the wise counselor.

The feeling of shedding pain that was to the point I could no longer walk has been like a feeling I’ve never had. I feel I was so fortunate to have had such an experienced surgeon. Truly the whole thing was, is, & has been a blessing.

I am very happy with the excellent care and surgery that I received from Dr. Sterba. I had a very successful knee replacement surgery. I am happy he was able to use the robotic method which I think made my recovery even better. He is a good listener and does a great job of communicating with his patient. He answers all of my questions and is just a very friendly man.
External Professional Relationships
Pharmaceutical, device, and biotechnology companies frequently collaborate with basic scientists and physicians within an academic medical center to help advance science and improve patient care. These relationships are important in achieving scientific breakthroughs and in establishing the effectiveness and safety of promising new therapies. In order to assure objectivity in clinical research and patient care, the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine (Feinberg), Northwestern Memorial HealthCare, Children's Hospital of Chicago Medical Center, and the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab have adopted integrity policies that require research and clinical faculty (in full-time, part-time, and unpaid/voluntary categories) to report compensated and uncompensated external industry relationships. Patients are encouraged to discuss these disclosures with their physician as well as to inquire as to how these relationships are overseen by Feinberg.
