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.

Made a diagnosis that all the other doctors I saw missed. Saved my career.

Pain is more severe and constant AFTER surgery. Gorup has arrogant attitude. He ordered bone stimulator that according to FDA should NOT be used. And, he damaged my vocals, which according to government, should have had, "informed consent." He shouldn't be working in healthcare let alone practice surgery.
Unfortunately not all surgeries are successful despite our best efforts. Injury to the vocal cords is a known complication of anterior cervical fusion and can result from many issues including intubation. Fortunately this injury usually resolves with time. In regards to informed consent, this is on our consent forms and is always discussed with our patients in the office and the time just prior to surgery. Bone stimulators are FDA approved in cases of revision surgery and osteoporosis.
