I was in chronic pain for 6 solid years. I was losing hope. Dr. Gorecki was my last line of salvation. He fixed me and I my life has changed from a 1 on a 10 scale, to at least a 6...it would be higher but I have other things wrong with me. I highly recommend him to anyone who has been disappointed with other neurosurgeons. I hugged his neck.
in Gainesville, GA |
I 1st saw Dr Gorecki in Dec of 2011 and had disectomy on L1 and S5 in Mar of 2012. Constant pain prior to surgery. I was back at work in 2 weeks. In June of 2016 I hurt my c-spine. I had numbness and severe pain to both arms. No grip strength in either hand and severe pain in both biceps and triceps. Diagnosis of cervical radiculopathy and severe myelopathy. C5 and C6 fused. I work in construction with ext ladders and climbing utility poles. Back to work in 60 days. Highly recommend Dr Gorecki

I had a major back surgery done by Dr Gorecki at NGMC in Gainesville, GA in 2013. I discovered months later that one of the screws he placed during the surgery was right on my vein to my left leg. When I confronted him he lied to me and said, Everything went according to plan. I had to go back to NY where it was corrected. According to Drs in NY the wrong level had been fused according to a CT mylogram I had done in NY. I would strongly advise everyone to stay clear of Dr Gorecki and NGMC.
in Gainesville, GA |
Dr. Gorecki performed a major back surgery on me and I was very pleased with the outcome. He was very honest and professional.
Excellent surgeon. He is extremely thorough and explained everything to me.
