I had a discectomy and fusion at C5-C6 after having right neck and shoulder pain for 2.5 years. My only regret is that I didn't do it sooner. Dr. Goldstein and his associates as well as the staff at Hospital for Joint Disease took very good care of me. I stayed in the hospital overnight and was up walking around the next day. I only took a week off from work as an Insurance Account Manager and was able to work from home the following week. I'm still getting PT for muscle strain from surgery but it is improving every day. I would recommend Dr. Goldstein to anyone with degenerative disc disease and other back pain issues. He is also very nice and doesn't treat you like a hypochondriac.
I went to see Dr.Goldstein for a second opinion after being informed by my Long Island Orthopedist that I would need a complicated spinal fusion. I was very pleased with his staff prior to my appointment they were extremely professional and were able to arrange the appointment in less than a week. I was in an extreme amount of pain and unable to walk more than a few steps. Dr. Goldstein examined me, read my MRI and told me that my L-3 level disc was herniated and that a discectomy was all that was needed. I was scheduled for surgery within a week and it was performed in the morning and I was released in the afternoon. It's been a slow, steady recovery (six weeks since surgery) and other that some discomfort and leg sensitivity I've experienced no pain. I'm very grateful to have been a patient of Dr. Goldstein. He has a great bedside manner and his honesty and clarity made me feel very at ease. I would highly recommend him to anyone experiencing back pain.
after years of back pain,sciatica,and hospital stays i went to seaport orthopedics and was sent for an mri.the mri showed severe herniations on the l1-l2 level,canal stenosis and a hematoma.Dr Goldstein recommended immediate surgery-discectomy and spinal decompression.at first i was nervous but put my trust in such a decorated surgeon.the procedure involved around a 3 inch vertical incision.i was put out with anesthesia and woke up 3 hours later to bearable pain but no reaction at all to the anesthesia.its been 4 weeks now and no infection (which i was worried about being diabetic)and its still healing.i was released the same day as the surgery since i was able to walk.i wont lie,there have been good days and bad days but he did a fantastic job.i dont feel the sciatica down my leg and im sure as the months go by i will feel less nerve pressure and hopefully less reoccurences.i feel he gave me the right advice and am very thankful for the great job and all the help he has provided.i highly recommend him and his staff for anybody with spine issues.
After after suffering sciatic pain and discomfort for about six years, visited Dr. Goldstein and was referred to pain management and was treated, helped little. Then did acupuncture treatment in Panama, sciatic pain radiated to feet. After a year returned to Dr. Goldstein who
asked if I was ready for surgery, gave my yes was operated on 09/11/14 and been pain free after physical therapy and able to walk 15 blocks with having to stop and strechout my back,
best Dr. in the business, can not wait for a full recovery from back-fusion on 3-5. Thank you
after many surgical opinions dr Goldstein was the only one who diagnosed me accurately. I was suffering from sever spinal stenosis for approx. one year and could not walk more then 10feet. Dr Goldstein performed spinal surgery and within 10weeks I was hitting Golfballs. Thank you Dr Goldstein.
I had been suffering from Chronic lower back and leg pain for over 4yrs before meeting Dr. Goldstein. After following his advice and pursuing physical therapy and pain management options I took his advice and we decided to move forward with a minor discectomy procedure. Since the surgery my pain has been greatly reduced and quite honestly the pain associated with the surgical procedure has been almost completely mitigated. I would definitely recommend Dr. Goldstein.
After my back surgery I'm playing soccer and tennis and horsing around with my kids. Dr. Goldstein diagnosed my problem and we tried some nonoperative treatments and injections first. When that didn't work he recommended surgery. I had almost immediate relief and I remain pain free almost 5 years later. I really appreciate him giving me my life back.
