Comments

Dr. Gullung, saved my mother's life. It was all routine until he noticed that her vertebrae was fracturing after her first surgery. He looked at her X-rays and saw something unusual. It was multiple myeloma. I will always and forever be grateful! She's alive and well and receiving cancer treatment. ❤
I had my first post-op visit today with Dr. Gullung after he performed a cervical fusion. Dr. Gullung is an outstanding surgeon and for the first time in months, I am pain free. He is kind, compassionate and truly cares for his patients.

Dr. Gregory Gullung specializes in Orthopedic surgery of the Spine. I believe in discussing, with the patient, their goals and treatment options.

With a focus on providing the least invasive care that will give them the best possible outcome, and provide them with the lifestyle they desire. I am able to provide many of these services in house to provide reliable and efficient care for my patients.
