Resurgens Orthpaedics-Midtown
I found Resurgens through my insurance provider. The great thing is they have multiple locations that provide care and treatment. I visited Dr. Raines who diagnosed my knee injury and recommended treatment. I am satisfied with my care. Some areas of improvement would be timeliness. I waited for long stretches of time to be seen by Dr. Raines, then after getting to the back room for service I waited long stretches again and on some visits he rushed through recommendations and was in a hurry to get out of the room. That was annoying. Additionally, the office does not validate parking.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians
Can't say enough great things about the way they handle their patient care! I had surgery here and the facility is 10 times nicer than any hospital in Atlanta. The surgeon and anesthesiologist made me feel so at ease. After 10 years of living with back pain, it was gone after the surgery, and I got to spend the night in my own bed that night!!
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.
