DR. JUDITH L. GORELICK is among the most experienced female neurosurgeons practicing today in Connecticut. She treats patients at New Haven-based Connecticut Neuroscience, PC, where she is part of a multidisciplinary team of neurosurgeons, pain-management and rehabilitation-medicine experts who focus on the treatment of degenerative spine conditions, brain tumors and diseases, peripheral nerve disorders and tumors of the pituitary gland.
A rare female practitioner in her surgical field, Dr. Gorelick is proud of the attention and care she offers to patients, who often come to her with painful and life-threatening conditions, including cancer. “I believe the key is to really listen to the patient,” she says. “I also spend a lot of time on education, explaining the condition and surgical options in a comprehensive way. I always approach my patients and their families in a manner that is responsive to their cares and concerns. My reputation is based on being extremely thorough and taking time with all of my patients.”
Dr. Gorelick is also part of a multidisciplinary team of radiation oncologists and physicians affiliated with the Hospital of Saint Raphael that performs radiosurgery using state-of-the art Cyberknife technology. This cutting-edge procedure delivers stereotactic radiation to benign and malignant brain and spine tumors. “It results in significant reductions in treatment time and provides excellent results and outcomes for patients,” explains Dr. Gorelick. She also employs minimally invasive surgical techniques, when appropriate, for a variety of spinal conditions, shortening hospital stays and recovery time. “My goal is always to tailor surgery to the specific needs and concerns of each patient,” she says.
Dr. Gorelick has a special expertise treating diseases of the pituitary gland and skull base, a field she finds especially intriguing because of the varied presentation of symptoms and challenging diagnoses. The care for pituitary tumors is delivered in a team approach along with her colleagues in endocrinology, otolaryngology and neuro-ophthalmology.
