Gary A. Gonya, MD
Dr. Gary A. Gonya is a Board Certified Orthopaedic Spine Surgeon. He focuses on the diagnosis and surgical management of neck, back and nerve related spinal pain. One of the key first steps to improving spine related pain is for the doctor and patient to be on the same page. Dr. Gonya takes the time to comprehensively understand how the pain is limiting a patient’s quality of life and to create a plan for modifying the pain and restoring function.
When spine surgery is indicated, Dr. Gonya places an emphasis on educating the patient and reviewing all the different surgical approaches and options available. Dr. Gonya strives to find minimally invasive and muscle-sparing approaches and techniques, which allow for a more effective and efficient recovery following surgery.
Dr. Gonya received his medical degree from Mount Sinai School of Medicine in 1998. He went on to train as an Orthopaedic surgical resident at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital completing his Chief Resident year in 2004.
