I saw Dr. Gajewski due to osteomyelitis in my left thigh and hip bones, he was the first Dr.who offered a surgical option, he was such a positive man and my surgery was such a wonderful experience, he has always been very reachable and ready to answer questions or concerns, i truly consider him a God send and would highly recommend him, not only did he perform the surgery i needed but my osteomyelitis infection was caused from a chronic wound that i had for 17yrs and he surgically closed it also

The very best!! Dr. "G" is a genius at what he does. Finding out that I had a malignant tumor in my thigh was a very scary time in my life. Lucky for me Dr. G was there holding my hand the entire way. From biopsies, to scans & tests, through surgery, and finally radiation, he was there for the duration. His knowledge & skill goes without saying, but his thoughtfulness, compassion, & positive attitude played a major role in my recovery. Thank you Dr. G!! Don't ever change.
