Dr. Gologorsky is a conservative surgeon, and will recommend surgery only when no other recourse is available. And, if surgery is necessary, he uses modern, minimally invasive techniques to minimize time in the hospital and maximize recovery.

If only there were more doctors like Dr Gologorsky, the world would be a better place! He is without a doubt the best dr I’ve come across in many years. I’m thankful that I was talked into switching drs prior to my surgery as dr G did a fantastic job. He rates way up there!!!
