Nussbaum, Keith S
The Nussbaum Chiropractic office is one of the friendliest you'll ever find and Dr. Nussbaum has taken great care of both me and my son for the last 12 years. I'm a former athlete who had quite a few aches and pains and Keith has corrected them all to keep me healthy and enjoying an active lifestyle. Our son's body takes a beating from playing college hockey but Dr. Nussbaum has kept everything in alignment for him so he can continue to play at a high level free from injury or pain. If you want to stay active and healthy than Nussbaum Chiropractic is certainly worth a visit. You'll always leave the office with an aligned spine and a smile.
Tips & Advices
Scoliosis is a disorder where the spine curves sideways. Most people develop the condition during the growth spurt before puberty. The cause of scoliosis is unknown and most cases are mild, but the rare severe instances can disable a person.
Orthopedic surgeons attend four years of medical school, then four to five years of orthopedic residency in a hospital. They must also be licensed and certified in orthopedic surgery by the state in which they practice.
The terms "orthopedic doctor" and "orthopedic surgeon" refer to the same profession. Related specialties include podiatrist, a doctor who works with the bones, tendons and ligaments in the feet, and a sports medicine physician, a doctor specially trained to treat athletes.
The cost of a visit to an orthopedic surgeon depends on the type of tests ordered and treatment given. For example, an MRI costs $500-$1,300. An initial consultation costs $100- $500, while anesthesia for a procedure generally ranges from $2,000-$4,000. Overall, an orthopedic surgery can cost anywhere from $15,000 to $30,000.
During a consultation or first appointment with an orthopedic surgeon, the practitioner will ask the patient a variety of questions to understand the situation. The surgeon might ask about the patient's pain levels, medical history, and any prior injuries. Then, the surgeon will administer a physical exam and possibly schedule tests to better understand the problem. Possible tests include a stress test, x-ray, or MRI.
