Theodore Koreckij, M.D.

Dr. Koreckij joined Dickson-Diveley Orthopaedics in 2014. As a spine surgeon, his area of expertise lies in the treatment of adult degenerative disorders of spine, as well as spine conditions associated with metastatic disease. He enjoys being a spine surgeon because of the complex anatomy of the spine and the significant impact he can have on a patient’s quality of life through the proper diagnosis and treatment of spine conditions. Spine surgery procedures commonly performed by Dr. Koreckij include:

  • Spinal decompression or laminectomy
  • Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF)
  • Lumbar fusion
  • Osteotomy
  • Microdiscectomy
  • Cervical disc replacement
  • Spinal instrumentation

In addition to surgical treatment options, patients with lower back pain may be candidates for the INTRACEPT Clinical Study, now available at Dickson-Diveley Orthopaedics through Dr. Koreckij. The study is evaluating the Intracept Procedure, a minimally invasive procedure for the relief of chronic low back pain. Learn more about Intracept in this educational video.
