CUMMING — A neurosurgeon with 25 years of experience is now operating at Northside Hospital-Forsyth.
Board-certified John Gorecki recently relocated his main office, Neurosurgery Answer, from Gainesville to Buford, and his move to Northside was to obtain access to the new gamma knife perfexion technology that the hospital boasts.
“The health and well-being of my patients is my priority,” Gorecki said. “I have built a strong patient base over the years, and the decision to relocate made sense for both my patients and my practice.
“Northside Hospital gives patients formerly unable to access my expertise a convenient location known for its prestige, all while reducing waiting times associated with large metropolitan areas but not forgoing quality of care.”
Gorecki received his medical degree from Queens University in Kingston, Ontario, in Canada, and completed his surgical internship at Saint Michael’s Hospital in Toronto. He finished his residency at the University of Toronto, where he received advanced training in stereotactic surgery, functional neurosurgery and epilepsy.
He was also trained in Stockholm, Sweden, for Leksell gamma knife perfexion treatment.
Neurosurgical health care is an evolving field that changes with advanced research and technology, he said.
Gorecki said he started his practice because he believes in working with his patients during their journey, from the initial exam and diagnosis to treatment and follow-up.
He specializes in stereotactic surgery, which focuses on radiosurgery for the treatment of tumors and deep-brain stimulation in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease.
He is one of eight neurosurgeons in Georgia who perform this type of surgery and has traveled the country to train other surgeons on these techniques.
His surgical experience encompasses minimally invasive surgical options for the spine and brain.
In addition to stereotactic surgery, he has experience with the treatment of trigeminal neuralgia and has specialized training with gamma knife and cyberknife radiosurgery.
Gorecki has treated benign and malignant brain tumors and has offered transnasal endoscopic pituitary surgery coupled with ENT.
He also operates a clinic in Demorest and works with Habersham Medical Center.
