Learn about Dr. Geck

Care Philosophy

My passion is the care of patients with pediatric and adult scoliosis, and complex spine problems. This includes fixing failed surgeries, flatback syndrome, previously operated scoliosis, as well as cord compression and other collapsing spine syndromes. I have pioneered the use of minimally invasive techniques for the treatment of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis, the use of less invasive or single approach surgeries for complex adult scoliosis, and have extensive experience with spinal osteotomy surgery.

My son had an adolescent idiopathic scoliosis. After we talked to Dr. Geck, we felt very comfortable with him.He seemed to be very confident and competent. His answers and decision were very clear. My son had a surgery in Nov, 2015. Dr. Geck did awesome job. My son post-op was very uneventful. He has been doing well since surgery. We are very grateful and fortunate to have Dr. Geck as his ortopedist. Dr. Geck is the best of the best. His nurse Jacqueline is very helpful throughout the process.

I first met Dr. Geck in 2006 when I was contemplating spine surgery. Over the year and before I interviewed several physicians. He was recommended and I felt comfortable with him. I had scoliosis and he fused 13 vertebrae and inserted cages around the lumbar region. It made all the difference in my life. Recently, I had an infection and the rods and screws were removed. I received the same quality care from Dr. Geck. I recommend him to others with spinal issues and a friend is in surgery today
You all are amazing team.
