  • Dr. Slover was a pleasure to see. He was professional as well as his entire staff from the time your enter his office and thur my operation. I highly recommend him and I have recently. I had a new Hip Replacement and I was back to work by the 5th week.
  • Dr. Slovar performed my right hip replacement (anterior approach). My experience with Dr. Slovar and his entire team was very positive. I recommend him.
  • Never rushed the consultations; everyone in his office is pleasant and helpful; hip replacement was a complete success.
  • Traditionally, joint replacement has been an inpatient surgical procedure. With the introduction of minimally invasive techniques, modern pain protocols, improved anesthetic techniques, and rapid rehabilitation protocols, surgeons are able to perform joint replacement procedures on an outpatient basis.

  • Minimally invasive surgical approach involves much smaller incisions than traditional surgeries. It causes less trauma to the tissues resulting in quicker healing and recovery.

  • Telemedicine gives you access to expertise in the comfort of your home. It allows your doctor to be in touch with you through audiovisual means providing necessary diagnosis, treatment and follow-up advice improving your convenience and cutting costs.
