Patient Comments (6)
Dr. Koski performed a C6-7 ACDF in the morning, I was home that night. Within two weeks I was back at work; after six weeks I was exercising again. Less than one year later I consider myself 99-percent. He and his staff are excellent! I would recommend him to anyone in need of a spinal surgery recommendation. The NWM facility (downtown) can be difficult to get to, but it is worth it... well run and well staffed.

I was careful in my choice of doctors to perform my surgery. Besides the usual research, I noticed that at every level of the professional employees I encountered in various departments at Northwestern, all had a high opinion of him. As do I. I'm fortunate to have had him as my surgeon.

Dr. Koski is a wonderful surgeon. Very knowledgeable and caring with his patients.
in Burbank, IL |
Dr koski teaches his techniques to doctors in countries world wide as far as Australia & Poland. He did several fusions on my back to correct another doctor's work & because of a fall. I had scoliosis & stenosis among other things. I had been in 2 pain clinics, & had constant pain. My surgeries were extensive but now, 6 years post surgery I am 95% pain free! I would not have the life I have today without his gifted hands & brilliant mind. It may take a while to get an appointment but worth it
He was extremely professional. He ordered diagnostic tests before my visit, so when I saw him, he could address my issue. I liked his conservative approach to my problem. I found his nurse Angie to be both professional and compassionate.

He never even touched me other than to shake my hand to greet me.
