Dr. Gillen, his PA Seth, nurses Emily & Nancy are all very caring, and knowledgeable. They take care of you like you're one of their own family members.

Dr Gillen and team are great! I just finished up a lengthy recovery, and everyone was great along the way. I experienced a few issues in the beginning and I had great support, quick responses and help whenever needed. Would definitely recommend.

I would recommend Dr. Gillen to any member of my family or friends. This man works miracles. I had to have total hip replacements in both hips, and he did a remarkable job. It is the first time in years I have been able to walk without pain in my hips. Thank you so much to his nurses also. They are the sweetest and caring I have met in a long time.

Was sent to Dr. Gillen by the Topeka VA which has provided my healthcare since my benes ran out the spring of 2018 (last workday was in January). Since I had gotten my care primarily through KU and before that SCL, my expectations were fairly high. From the young lady at the desk through the nurses, and PA I was impressed by their patience and professionalism. Would rather Doc had a wider range of options to offer, but should the injections and rehab fail to make the need to repair the damage unnecessary I would not hesitate to put my care in the hands of Dr Gillen and his staff.

I’ve had three different procedures by Dr Gillen. Very pleased and happy with the end result. I would highly recommend this surgeon to family and friends. Joe and Emily on his team are awesome!

I have been with Dr Gillen for the last 10 years.He has performed 4 spine surgeries on me. He's a wonderful surgeon. I will be taking the 2 hour drive and following him to Topeka.The thought of having to go somewhere else terrifies me. He's not only a good doctor he's a good person. He takes the time to listen and is very considerate to your needs and wants. I would definitely recommend him to anyone having back problems.
