I found that Dr. Oren Gottfried,to be an honest, straight forward and genuine neurosurgeon. He will directly tell the patient what the problem is, how he can alleviate the problem,and the steps to be taken to resolve this issue. Dr. Gottfried took me into his office prior to my surgery and literally explained, what have been happening to me for the past 3 years,with my back problem. He further explained on the initial post visit,what he did. Its 6 months after my surgery, and I am pain free,thanks to Dr.Gottfred and his staff. His work is definitely phenomenal. I am living now with a sense of normalcy.

I have had back and knee pain since 1994. I was a Marine. Many treatments by different kind of doctors over the years. I needed spinal stenosis and a forminatomy/Laminectomy. I searched a read about Dr. Gottfried ultimately deciding he was my best hope. Not only am I practically pain free a few weeks out, his bedside manner, giving his personal cell for concerns, being so quick to respond to all messages all hours of the night, he is amazing. I tell everyone I can how impressed I am.

In 2010 I underwent cervical spine surgery by a physician in Wilmington, NC. In 2012 I was still having pain and sought a second opinion by Dr. Gottfried. He discovered that I had a psuedoarthrosis as well as slippage at the C7-T1. So in 2012 I had surgery by him. I found him to be most highly educated in his field as well very personable. He clearly explained the procedures to me as well the expected outcomes. I have had nothing but the upmost respect for this fine doctor and recommend him!

Dr. Gottfried is an excellent neurosurgeon! I prayed for a great Dr & God lead me to him. I met Dr. Gottfried in July of 2017 with two crushed discs & a cracked vertebrae. He said surgery was the last resort. He operated on me in Dec of 2017 at my request. Rods at L4, L5, & S1. Put a cage in through my abdomen. It's now May 2018 and I feel so much better then before. I would recommend him to my family & anyone that needs spinal surgery. It was tough at first but the results were worth it!

I would like to send this note about Dr. Oren Gottfried and his staff, the staff at Duke Hospital, and Duke-Raleigh Hospital for their stellar preparation, work, recovery, and most personal recovery and follow up after surgery. My wife Susan had a very delicate spinal fusion two years ago, with complications during recovery that resulted in a second surgery and recovery, and to this day, Dr. Gottfried still follows up with my wife and I, himself. Something uncommon in today's medical profession.

April 30, 2017, at 8:05pm My 20 year old son was hit by a truck while long boarding. He received a skull fracture, brain bleed and two contusions. He does not remember four days of his life. He had to relearn walking, feeding himself, bathing, etc. He also lost the ability to talk for weeks. Dr Gottfried was AMAZING. He shared the facts every step of the way. He was encouraging, yet honest with what the future could hold. We were blessed to have Gottfried. He saved my son's life and future.

In December 2010, Dr. Oren Gottfried performed an Exterior Cervical Infusion after I suffered a broken neck. Thanks to Dr. Gottfried I am recovering from partial paralyzes on my right side and several other conditions related to the accident I experience. I truly appreciate the excellent care provided to me by this neurosurgeon and his fine staff. I do have a very good friend that I recommend to have a procedure. We have shared our experience with each others. Thank you, Dr. Gottfried.
