April 16, 2018

Hermann Area District Hospital is happy to again announce that Douglas Goracke, M.D. has joined the Medical Staff team at Hermann Hospital where he is our new Anesthesiologist.

Pain Management Services Offered: Dr. Goracke is also offering new Pain Management services to patients, to help those in the community manage pain that they otherwise would have to go out of town for. Dr. Goracke’s Pain Management Services include lumbar epidural injections for back pain, as well as joint injections, such as knees and elbows. He accepts many private insurances, and also Medicare and Medicaid.

Dr. Goracke comes to us from the Kansas City area. He began practicing Anesthesiology in 1989 and joined the Medical Staff at Hermann Hospital in August of 2017. When asked what attracted him to his profession, he responded, “The technical aspects of providing Anesthesia, combined with the complex medical conditions.” Dr. Goracke has enjoyed working at Hermann Hospital these past months, including working with his fellow healthcare workers, such as the doctors, nurses, and ancillary staff. For those in our community who have not yet met Dr. Goracke, be sure to offer him a warm welcome when you see him.
