I recently had Spinal Fusion surgery done by Dr. G. During the entire process of meeting Dr. G. understanding my surgical options, scheduling and preparing for the surgery everyone in the office was extremely professional and reassuring. Both in the Hospital and after, Dr. G. took the time to make sure I understood what to expect and what the next steps would be. I felt extremely comfortable not only with Dr G. but also with his entire team.

I have had 2 surgeries now with Dr. Gologorsky and he is the absolute best. I was terrified of having surgery but Dr. G. Took the time to thoroughly evaluate my difficult case to find the best option for me. He answered all my questions, and puts his patients first. Each surgery went perfectly. The office is great, I never wait long at my appointments and all the staff is fantastic! I am so greatful to have found Dr. G. He is a brilliant surgeon with the best bedside manner. I would give give him 10 stars if I could and I recommend him to everyone.

During the COVID pandemic, Dr Gologorsky went out of his way to ensure that my husband was evaluated urgently, had an MRI and scheduled for emergent surgery all while taking steps to protect my husband from unnecessary exposure. He spent time on the phone arranging everything so that all the pieces were lined up right when my husband got to the hospital. He has been honest and forthcoming about every step of the recovery. Even with social distancing, Dr Gologorsky repeatedly reached out to check in and see how my husband was progressing.

Dr. Gologorsky and his staff are amazing and I highly recommend. He is very professional and was able to determine immediately what needed to be done to repair a very painful injury that has completely disrupted my life. I felt immediately comfortable with him and very confident in his diagnosis and plan of treatment. He is giving me my life back - how do you begin to thank someone for that? Additionally, Damaris Rivera, his Nurse Practitioner, has been wonderful. She is always pleasant and very responsive. She answers all my questions even during this very, very busy time. Our health is the most important thing we have and I'm very glad that I trusted Dr. Gologorsky to help me.

44-year-old female referred to Dr. G after failed conservative treatment. I had an ACDF C5,C6 in 2013. Dr. G suspected the escalated pain was due to a failed bone graft. A CT scan revealed a fractured bone in my neck for the entire seven years. Along with heterotopic ossification. My muscles in the middle of my back and ligaments ossified as a result. This was intensely painful and he made sure that I got surgery when the city was shut down in most difficult times with COVID-19. I am 7 days post op PCDF C5. My orthopedic Dr. failed me, Dr. G didn’t. He was honest about my outcome he did not put me on medication that was not needed in his opinion & could not even fathom the thought of responding with radiation. No longer have to be a google Dr trying to figure out what was going on with me I was HOPELESS. I’m confident that I am in the BEST HANDS EVER. Dr. G breathed life back into me and all the pain I was in appears to be subsiding. No more numbness or tingling. Long road to recov.

Dr. Golorosky performed low back surgery on me on December 24, 2019 at Englewood Hospital and Medical Center. He is an amazing doctor. I had been in pain for almost a year with my lower back. After meeting him and having him perform surgery on me, I am a new person. I was in pain 24 hours a day. Dr. Golorosky you are such a compassionate person and a wonderful surgeon. Thank you for giving me my life back. I will recommend you to anyone I know that is having back pain/issues. Your office and all who help with me are wonderful people. Thank you So Very Much.

Chronic low back pain dating back to teenage years (~15 years). Dr. Gologorsky clearly explained the surgical plan, the recovery plan, and what to expect during this time, making me feel very comfortable and confident. Surgery went well and I've recovered well, expect to be stronger and better than ever.

Dr Gologorsky performed a microdisectomy at Englewood Hospital. The procedure produced 100% pain relief from my L5-S1 nerve root compression. He also operated on my daughter in 2015 performing a lumbar fusion using titanium and she received 100% pain relief of her low back and leg pain. Dr Gologorsky is a conservative surgeon, thorough, super nice and as one of the nurses at the hospital told me 'brilliant'. Highly recommended.

Dr. Gologorsky is one of the most understanding, compassionate, down-to-earth doctors that I've ever met. He explained what needed to be done in a simple way without making it seem like a big deal (even though it most certainly was a big deal). He personally called me every day that I was in the hospital to see how I was doing. He is highly skilled, as evidenced by my successful spinal surgery. I was on pain meds in the hospital, but had no pain. Upon leaving the hospital after three days, I DID NOT NEED TO USE ANY OPIOIDS! I'd recommend Dr. Gologorsky to anyone in need of a neurosurgeon. May God continue to bless the work of his hands.

I am 26 years old and for a few years I had chronic back pain and sciatica that never resolved. After meeting with Dr. Gologorsky, he recommended surgery and I can happily say I have been pain-free for over a year now since the operation. In addition to his brilliance as a surgeon, Dr. Gologorsky put me at ease and explained everything to me in a clear, precise, and easy to understand manner. I would highly recommend a consult with him for anyone who has had similar issues.
