Six weeks after Dr. Gorczynski performed a total knee replacement, I am enjoying a healthy leg for the first time since osteoarthritis set in several years ago. From my first visit to the doctor to my post surgery final checkup, Dr. Gorczynski and his wonderful office staff and auxiliary medical staff maintained the highest standards in delivering first class care AND caring! He listens, he explains everything and he is also a great surgeon. Hospital staff is great, too! Thank you, Dr. G.!

My knee replacement surgery was December 4, 2018. I have already recommended him to many of my friends and family. Extremely through, caring and everything happened just as he explained. I was totally prepared. I’m now ready to have the other one done.

I highly recommend Dr.Gorczynski. He’s performed arthroscopic surgery on my left shoulder for a torn labrum and most recently my right knee for acl and meniscus repair. He’s incredibly intelligent and very thorough. Always ensures all your questions are answered. Really nice guy and does excellent work.

After a year and a half of dealing with chronic knee pain 24/7 from what I was told was a torn miniscus, I go for a second opinion and find Dr. Gorczynski! My pain was coming more from severe osteoarthritis and not just the tear. After 2 weeks of exercises to strengthen my hip, and taking a couple Excederin, pain level went from a daily level 8 to a 1, 2! I’m back to walking/jogging 3 times a week! Can’t thank this awesome Dr. enough! Knowledgeable and caring!

I cannot recommend this medical wonder strongly enough. After nearly 3 years, about 12 procedures, and 9 Drs., Dr. G has given me back my life, bringing me from a pain level of 9-10 down to a 1. He is a Stryker Mako robotic expert, and after the first total hip replacement, I am now in PT in prep for the second hip. Dr. G CARES, looks you directly in the eye, makes you feel as though you are his only patient, does not waste your time with unnecessary tests, and works with an efficient team.

I trust Dr. Gorczynski to do whatever I need for my medical problems. He replaced my shoulder and left knee and I'm so glad he did, because they are good now and don't hurt. He is a very good surgeon and very kind and thoughtful.

I saw Dr. Gorczynski for about 2 years to address my bone on bone arthritic knee. He helped me through many options to treat my knee, as I requested. I finally made my own decision to have a total knee replacement. He never pushed the surgery. I am so happy that I finally had the surgery. It has been 4 months post op now, and I am doing really well. He is a very kind and caring man, and I think he is so knowledgeable. The whole experience of this was state of the art. My care was exemplary.

I would recommend Dr. Gorczynski to anyone that needs a bond and joint doctor. He is very knowledgeable, patient and kind. He takes the time to sit with you and explain what needs to be done and how he is going to do it. He made me feel extremely comfortable before and after surgery.

It is my belief that Dr. Gorczynski is a fantastic doctor and a great surgeon. I had rotator cuff surgery on April 6th removing arthritis and then reattaching several of my tendons. His bedside manner was excellent and he explained everything in detail that would happen. All of my follow up appointments were meaningful as my progress was monitored. At this time I feel about 85-90 % recovered. Throughout this whole period my pain level was low and I took very little pain medicine. Rate a 10

I would definitely recommend Dr. Gorczynski for Orthopedic surgery. The whole process, including the classes I attended, made the total knee replacement surgery less fearful for me. The surgery was done 4/25/17 and I went home the next day. My follow up visits were great, and Dr. G is very pleased with my progress, and I'm very happy with the outcome; I have no more pain.

I have had two knee replacements in the past year and was very happy with the results. I would recommend Dr. Gorczynski to anyone and find him a kind and skillful surgeon. The experience in CMH on the Orthopedic floor was a very good one with no complaints on my part. Everyone was most helpful and understanding.
