One day after running, Rob who had been dealing with a backache for some time couldn’t move his right foot. His primary care doctor referred him to Dr. Gerardo Goldberger and found out he had a herniated disc in his lower back. This type of injury can leave some patients in pain and disabled for months or even years. Rob’s surgery was scheduled for 2 days later. Rob was on a plane to Italy 4 weeks after surgery, 2 months after he was riding a bike and within 4 months he was running alongside his high school team, coaching them to the Shore Conference Championship in track!
Knowing Dr. Goldberger and his expertise in treating elite athletes I was confident he would get me ‘back on track’ as quickly as possible.
Dr. G is the best, I feel great”
This accomplished equestrian breeds, rides, and competes with her horses. One day in June she was riding when her horse became startled, bucked, and sent Ainslie into the air. Ainslie was in incredible pain. She could not walk or stand. Arriving at the hospital, Ainslie met Dr. Grigory Goldberg, her back was broken in several places, there was concern she would never walk again. The severe pain ended with the surgery Dr. Goldberg performed. Ainslie was sitting in a chair the 2nd day after surgery and was walking the 3rd day.
“I had to lie flat in bed for 5 days before the surgery could be done. They were the most horrible days of my life. Dr. Goldberg saved my life. I believe without him I wouldn’t ever get back to showing and riding my horses again. My horses are my life!”
