THE BEST! I have known Dr. Gorup for over three decades. He is the most empathetic, supportive, and insightful surgeon I have ever known. Moreover, he has always been extremely responsive to any and all questions or requests I have ever had. I would unhesitatingly and confidently recommend him to both family and friends.

Four years after surgery, I remain in constant, chronic pain. My vocal chords are much worse. I still believe it’s due to the bone stimulator that he insisted on. The FDA, did NOT approve this particular stimulator for the cervical area due to complications but Gorup insisted I use it. I didn’t use it very long because of the intense discomfort. Now, I can no longer talk for any period of time and at the end of the day, my voice is gone. I need to see a specialist but after my experience with Gorup, I really do not want any more surgeries. I hope my review helps people to not make the same bad decision I made.

Dr Gorup performed surgery on me 10 years after a neurosurgeon had fused 3 of my vertibrate. After all that time the area beneath the fusion began to hurt and the neurosurgeon did both a CAT scan & MRI. He found a lot of minor arthritic joints nothing stood out that would cause such pain. As a last result I went to Dr Gorup. He showed X-ray that looked as if my nerve was being pinched so I agreed to surgery. At first after surgery my back felt good for about a month but then it bagan to hurt worse that before the surgery. Dr Gorup had no explanations or recommendations and so I left with more pain that I started with. I returned to the neurosurgeon who indicated that yes the X-ray taken from that angle would make it look as if my spine was being pinched but if you looked at the CAT scan and MRI which took images from all sides/angles which show my spine had plenty of space and was not being pinched. Today I'm in constant pain and 80% of the day use a walker or wheel chair.

Don’t waste your time and money. Won’t give you a diagnosis if he can’t operate

Two years post surgery, my cervical pain remains severe. My vocal chords remain damaged to the point where I lose my voice and I can no longer sing or do public speaking. My quality of life is poor and I remain in bed the majority of time. Please, diligently review physicians before you allow them to do surgery.

The morning of surgery, I could not walk, stand, sleep laying down, shower, or drive. The next day I was climbing stairs, free of the pain that led me to seek help in the first place. I am now at two weeks past surgery and feel better than I have in years. Would I recommend Dr. Gorup to others? I already have.
