    I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank Assoc Professor Tony Goldschlager and his staff. His professionalism and expertise was truly amazing. 

    What stands out for me, was his initial advise and care. He made me feel comfortable in the decision we were making and I knew he was focused on my long term well being.

    Upon being admitted to Cabrini (which was also outstanding), Tony ensured I was comfortable both before and after the operation. My nurse in DOSA at Cabrini (Mary), who was also outstanding, could not praise Tony enough and continued to assure me I was in good hands.

    My wife received his call 10 mins after the operation, demonstrating again, the importance he places on patient care, which makes a real difference during the recovery period. 

    I am also participating in a research program Tony is undertaking, to assist with the most effective recovery process. This demonstrates once again his ongoing commitment toward improving the health and well being of his patients.

    Tony, Thank you, you have made a real difference in my life.  If there is anything I can do, please do not hesitate to let me know.
    Regards Darren Millar

    • Location: Private practiceService: Pinched nerve at S5/L1

      Assoc Professor Tony Goldschlager was amazing. My pre-op visit was very informative and he made me feel at ease with having my operation. I had a compressed nerve in my spine which had left me with a loss of reflex in one of my legs and constant pain, sitting, standing or lying. When I woke up from the anesthetic l knew it had been a success. The pain for the first time in over 18 months was all but gone. It is now three weeks later and l feel like the old me ..... no pain just a bit of numbness in my foot which l have been told will get better. His professionalism and aftercare was excellent..... l have no hesitation in recommending this wonderful surgeon.

    • Location: Private practiceService: L5, S1 spinal fusion

      My name is Trent, i've just had my last visit with Assoc. Prof. Tony Goldschlager, 12 months post surgery. From the very first appointment with Tony i felt confident i was under the best care possible. The visits to Tony pre surgery for him to plan where all very to the point and gave me a good understanding of what was ahead. The morning of surgery he made me feel as good as you can under the circumstances. About 2 hours after surgery he visited me and i got out of bed. I could not believe it when i put my slippers on and could feel the wool with my toes ( a feeling i hadn't had for more than 6 months). Months of pain all gone after i woke from anaesthetic. His technique left me with very little surgery pain and it was gone within a week. I found Tony to be so very very good at what he does, in fact i would find it hard to believe that anyone could've got me a better result. I am now living a very active normal life with no restrictions as to what i can do.
      Thank-you so very much Tony, I was in a pretty bad way and you gave me my life back.
