Dr. K is excellent! He took all my painnaway with a ACDF 3-5. He took his time and explained that procedure thoroughly, I never felt rushed. Glad I got a second opinion, and Dr. K was it. Would highly recommend!

Agreed to help me after 2 other doctors refused. Dr. Koreckij gave my life back. Certain I was headed for a wheelchair, my legs and hips have been completely pain free since surgery! An awesome person, as well as surgeon. His staff are also amazing.

From my 1st appointment to my 9- month check-uo today, my care with Dr. Koreckij has been wonderful. He explained everything fully about my back condition, he took me through the surgery well, and explained exactly what I could expect. He was soot in with everything along with being very professional in his manner along with being friendly. I recommend him very highly!

My back surgery was great. Highly recommend
in Kansas City, MO |
They took X-rays and he confirmed that I do indeed have scoliosis. Then regarding my life long pain, he "prescribed" a couple Tylenol. He disregarded my ideas completely i.e. breast reduction etc. He completely ignored that I'm significantly more hunched than 5 years and I'm only 35. ABSOLUTELY UNHELPFUL.

Great office. Great doctor!! Great experience! Highly recommend!!!
Kansas City, MO |
Dr koreckji is a wonderful doctor. He put 4 pin and 2 rods in back and I feel better now than I have in years! He has been great every step of the way and really cares about his patients. Every nurse I had at the hospital said that he would be who they would have do their surgery which says something!

Dr Koreckij and his staff are outstanding! Dr koreckij did surgery on my back and I feel great. It took a couple weeks to recover but so worth it. His assistant Brandie was so helpful on the phone after surgery. I cannot say enough! Please see him if considering spine surgery!

The Best doctor was fixed right after surgery
in St. Joseph, Mo |
Dr. Koreckij has made an incredible difference in the quality of my life. I was friightened at the thought of having my back fused & the spinal canal cleared. Having a panic over how I was going to manage afterward, Dr Koreckij calmed my fears. The surgery went beautifully with his competence, knowledge, & expertise. As Dr. Fotopoulos said, "you will never find a better surgeon"...... He was so right, Dr. Koreckij is surely the best! Wonderful result!
in Overland Park, KS |
Dr K did an excellent job with the entire process. He was very communicative and did a great job answering questions. It was obvious he cares about his patients. Best Doctor experience in dealing with my spinal issues.

Dr. Koreckij preformed a microdiscectomy on my back. I was very satisfied with him as well as his staff they were very knowledgeable and attentive to my every need.

Olathe, KS |
Dr. Koreckij did my back surgery and he did a wonderful job. The only frustrating thing is to just be able to make an appointment with him at the Orthopeadic place. My phone was acting up so I went online. I had to put a phone number so I called to Orthopeadic place. It is impossible to make an appointment since they only take a phone number to call back. They would not make the appt. over the phone. Really! My phone it's acting up! I'm able to be on the phone right now, make the appointment!!
in Shawnee, KS |
I had a large herniated disc (C6-7). I had an ACDF yesterday and feel better than I have for months. Truly! Dr. Koreckij did an incredible job. He was very patient in answering all my questions, and his nursing staff called me back within a few hours each time I left a message. I was crazy nervous about this surgery, but now I'm so glad I did it, and equally glad I chose Dr. Koreckij. Best of luck with whomever you choose- but I highly recommend Dr. Koreckij.

I was scheduled to see Dr. Koreckij for injuries sustained in an auto accident. Three insurance carriers were provided, yet they demanded I give them credit card information for anything that is not paid. Really? The office manager even went to the doctor and asked if he would let it slide, and he would not as it is policy. I walked out.
