In August, 2014, my husband (who wrote the first Software for the Ethernet-now called Wi-Fi and who is the inventor of the sleep mode on your computers, became unable to work a full or part time job. He has been denied disability twice by Texas Social Security. In August 2014 Dr. Angirasa who trained in Chicago-sent him to Brackenridge and was very upset he was not admitted. He still has no insurance. Here it is 2017 and this one saved his life again--infected diabetic foot ulcers and other things. Prevention saves lives, not money. He is not eligible for Veterans benefits as he had an early honorable discharge and is 62 and owns property we can no long afford. Thanks Texas. I think not. His condition if he had been placed on disability would be better now -no worse and he would probably be out working. All the stress has taken its toll. The staff there was not very good for helping in 2014 with the paper work. We went there 03/29/17 and one woman said she did not know where the 2014 paper work was. Doctor Angirasa is a skilled and caring surgeon. Have not found better in Austin yet. If I had not had professional Nurse and Physician Assistant's training in Texas and California, he probably would have already lost his foot or feet. Wrong and all was done from the previous Administration who did not seem to care. All citizens deserve free health care and pa ore if you want it faster.

Dr. Scott Spann has done wonders for me. Often times (over the many years) my sense of humor did seem to befuddle him. He fixed my heel tendon, fused a double layer of lumbar (I teased him about wanting him to implant AA breasts, but alas), tried & tried again at a stubborn rotator cuff. And when the job needed to be done by another surgeon, he got me quickly seen and taken care of by other Surgeons; as my 2 other ankle surgeries were done at the surgery clinic almost walking distance from my home (if I could have walked either before or after). His Office staff are pure GOLD, they always made sure my messages were returned ASAP. That I was well aware of my appointments, that any billing problems could & would be worked out. If I had to wait for my appointment, I always knew 'Why' (Doctor being late from surgery, etc.). This ENTIRE group of CARING Individuals - I wish I could list them all by name; PAs, Admins, Doctors worked as a well tuned machine that had been together for decades. My hat is off, & I BOW to you all.Thanks for a better life.

Dr. Richard Schram MD - Cypress Creek Orthopedics & Sports Medicine
I saw Dr. Schram about pain that radiated down one leg for about 10 years. He diagnosed it immediately as sciatica and referred me to a neurologist who confirmed the diagnosis as S-1 radiculopathy; and an MRI showed a bulging disc. Dr. Schram presented all the information clearly and suggested several options to relieve the pain. He strongly encouraged physical therapy first but also said I could benefit from short-term steroid therapy (Medrol doespak), a spinal injection, or as a last resort, surgery. I am an athlete and immediately jumped on his suggestion for physical therapy, without all the drugs and surgery. After 3 months, I am virtually cured - I am so appreciative that Dr. Schram did not tell me that drugs or surgery were my only solutions!! He tailored my treatment plan for me, knowing that I was willing to amend my lifestyle to get a result I could live with and that I did not require instant gratification. I was very impressed with his knowledge and extremely happy with my result.

Dr. Richard Schram MD - Cypress Creek Orthopedics & Sports Medicine
Reviews for a doctor can be difficult. Our life depends on them so we apply faith to complement our experience. Dr. Richard Schram was with me for about 4 minutes. I had already had cortisone shot but I got another one which had no effect on my shoulder. This cost $822.00. On my second visit the time spent with the doctor was about one minute. I moved my arm 1 direction and an MRI were ordered. After the MRI I had all results transferred to my PCP (primary care physician). When the PCP walked into my patient room he already had it all figured out. He had looked at the MRI. He told me what I had and what the options were. This cost $131.00 and he spent a lot of time with me taking care of other issues.The charge for 7 physical therapy appointments was $3964.07. The exercise club membership is $30 per month and they have full swimming and hot top facilities. I am disappointed. I think with the right supervision Dr. Schram might perform OK.

I injured my shoulder in a high impact martial arts school and was referred to Dr. Roden by my primary care physician. I have never been so happy with a doctor in my whole life. He spent at least a 1/2 hour with me each time I was in his office and explained everything to me before the surgery. The day of surgery he met with my family and me post-op and was funny, compassionate, and professional. Subsequent followups were informative and compassionate. I highly recommend Dr. Roden for any shoulder problem.

Dr. Richard Schram MD - Cypress Creek Orthopedics & Sports Medicine
Highly recommend - the service and professionalism from Dr Schram and entire staff was exceptional. Knee pain turned out to be a torn meniscus. Surgery was Friday, walking on Saturday evening and actually played golf on the Tuesday. I consider him to be one of the best. Capable, competent, professional and would highly recommend.

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.
