This content was provided by Dr. Goldberg People are somewhat fearful when they hear that they may need a spine operation. When you discuss what the options are, you sort of educate them on what the outcomes of the procedures you're recommending offer - what the success rates is, what risks are - so that they can make an informed decision. When I see patients back in an office, after X number of weeks after they've had a procedure and they're pleased with their outcome, that's what makes me come back - if you will - year after year to continue to practice spine surgery.

Outstanding experience - after close to 24 months of pain, PT, pain treatments and medication surgery was my last option. Dr. Goldberg and his team were empathetic, supportive, educational and the surgery went off without a hitch. My expectations were very well managed re: the surgery and recovery. And the relief was near immediate. I cannot recommend them more highly.

Because of Doctor Goldberg, I have been able to work in the construction industry and most importantly, I have been able to provide for my family. I'll never go to another Doctor, and I have sent family and friends to see him. He's hands down one of the best Doctors I've had

Dr. Goldberg gave me my life back. I had a laminectomy and spinal fusion done 2 years ago. Before that I was pretty much unable to function. I was in constant pain even on opioids. Dr. Goldberg performed my surgery, gave excellent follow up care and I am back to a much more active lifestyle. I can kayak, bike, hike thanks to this wonderful man! I would highly recommend him.

He was just great! I don't how my experience could have been any better. He did everything he said he would and the outcome so far has gone without a hitch. I start rehab tomorrow and have a second follow up in February 2017. If you have a disc problem in your back or any problem with your spine I would strongly recommend you make an appointment with Dr. Goldberg.

This young man knows what he is doing. I bet he could do this with his eyes closed. That's how much I trusted him. I'm laid back and he adapted to my style so we had a laugh through my two herniated L4 6" and L5 7" discs. I went from severe pain to walking again!
in Mokena, IL |
Dr. Goldberg had a great bedside manner - explained the surgery in a way I could understand exactly what he would be doing - and after 38 years of PT, series of shots, hospitalizations and many more of let's try this I am pain free - Katie is a valuable asset to Dr. Goldberg and made us very comfortable.

Dr. Goldberg was very thorough in his explanation of my injury and in his explanation of the procedure that followed. Post-surgery I feel much better than I expected.

I had suffered from disc pain for 2 years and after going doctor to doctor I finally found Dr Goldberg at Rush. He was extremely professional and friendly with a good sense of humor, gaining my trust from the first visit. His treatment plan was spot on and after having him perform my discectomy the feeling of being pain free again is sublime,I have a new lease on life. I know I'm in good hands with Dr Goldberg and his assistant Katie :)
