About Gorelick, Judith

JUDITH L. GORELICK, M.D., FACS, is among the few female neurosurgeons practicing in Connecticut. She graduated Cornell University with a B.S in neurobiology before earning her medical degree from New York University School of Medicine. She completed her residency in neurosurgery at the University of Michigan Medical Center and began her clinical practice of neurosurgery in Connecticut in 2001. 

With over 15 years of experience, Dr. Gorelick now practices at NOSS, a multi-specialty group, and leads their Shelton, CT office. Additionally, she has assumed the role of Section Chief of Neurosurgery at Griffin Hospital. 

“My reputation is based on being extremely thorough and taking time with my patients,” she says. She provides broad, comprehensive care and believes in “not rushing to the OR” before thoroughly discussing all options with her patients. Her goal is to do what is in the best interest of each patient and to educate them on their condition. Dr. Gorelick notes that a patient who understands their condition is in the best position to make a good decision about their care. In the high-tech world of medicine today, Dr. Gorelick stresses how important the art of listening and compassion are to patients. Dr. Gorelick works with excellent colleagues who round out the spectrum of care. “Patients feel really comfortable and like the concept of a team approach to surgery,” says Dr. Gorelick, who notes this approach often results in faster recoveries and better outcomes. 

Dr. Gorelick serves on the medical advisory panel for the State of Connecticut Workers’ Compensation board, is a member of the Connecticut Chapter of the American College of Surgeons Committee on new applicants, has published numerous scholarly articles in peer reviewed journals and enjoys giving community lectures on a broad spectrum of neurosurgical topics.

Dr. Gorelick is most proud to balance her career in neurosurgery with her role as mom of two incredible sons and to share her life with her physician-husband of over twenty years.
