Tier 1 Orthopedics
I have had outstanding healthcare experiences with the care provided by Tier 1 physicians and their staff. They were thorough and very professional each and every time that I was there. Dr. Nichols treated a my neck and I am now 100% pain free. I had been told by many doctors in Nashville that I would have to live with pain, but he knew what was wrong and fixed it. Dr. Roberts treated my son's fractured hand & was very kind and compassionate. Dr Cruz operated on my husband's neck and he had a very positive outcome. We are lucky to have a group of such talented doctors in our area all under one roof. The office is very clean and comfortable too.

i just wanted to thank dr Jestus for the amazing work he did on my back. I was hesitant at first, but he is a very confident and down to earth guy, and basically he gave me my life back. Things could not have went any smoother, and now, 1 yr pos op, and i feel like a new man with a new start. I thought i was done, but i now have no pain at all.

Physicians are fantastic, but the staff is unprofessional. They seem to be uncaring and wanting to run the patients through like cattle. I have been there with two different patients and had the same problem both times with the staff, not always the same employees.
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.
