John Jordan Gashkoff, MD, DABIPP

Pain Medicine, The Spine Center

Years in Practice: 26 years
Practices In: Naperville
Patients Seen: Adults

My approach to man­ag­ing pain is to attempt to iden­ti­fy the pain gen­er­a­tor using var­i­ous diag­nos­tic tests and/​or pro­ce­dures, then tai­lor­ing a treat­ment plan spe­cif­ic to the indi­vid­ual. I am com­pas­sion­ate, a good lis­ten­er and have 26+ years of expe­ri­ence treat­ing a wide vari­ety of painful conditions.

Clinical Interests

My spe­cif­ic inter­ests are in uti­liz­ing advanced inter­ven­tion­al tech­niques for some­times dif­fi­cult to treat pain prob­lems such as per­sis­tent spine/​arm/​leg pain after pre­vi­ous surgery. I also spe­cial­ize in the treat­ment of ver­te­bral and sacral com­pres­sion frac­tures as well as treat­ment of spinal stenosis.

Personal Interests

In my time away from the office, I love spend­ing time with my fam­i­ly. I enjoy most out­door activ­i­ties such as hik­ing, bik­ing, water sports, ski­ing and golf.
