More About Dr. Koreckij

Dr. Koreckij’s area of expertise lies in the surgical treatment of adult degenerative disorders of the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine as well as those conditions associated with metastatic disease.

Outside of Work

He enjoys spending time with his wife and daughter. When he is not at work or with his family he can be found tending to his lawn/landscape and considers himself an amateur horticulturist. He takes great pleasure in a perfectly manicured landscape which he will be the first to tell you is never truly achieved.
