      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.

      My appointment went very smoothly. I didn't have to wait long to see him. All of the staff made me feel very comfortable. Dr Geck also gave me a good comfortable feeling.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
