I have been going to the Ramsey st. clinic for about three years. The reason was knee pain. I have had MRI'S, shots of all kinds, the last visit before today i was told that when this shot wears off that they were going to scope and clean up the knee. After today's visit the story has changed, I was told today that surgery probably wouldn't do any good, possibly make it worse maybe help it. So after 3 years @ $50 a visit if feel that I have been taken for $2000,00 ride, and have accomplished nothing but make my pocketbook lighter. My advise is to stay away from this business. Go to someone that is going to be honest with you at first not 3 years and lots of dollars later.

Not happy with service received in pt. Maybe if you are recovering from an injury or have just had surgery they would be OK. I went in to learn how to strengthen my knee to help reduce my knee pain associated with OA. They gave me the a=same exercises that they would with an injury. They kept on wnating to know how much opain I was in but since I jsut had a cortisone shot I don't have much. I wanted to use this window that the shot has given me to strengthen the muscles around my knee but they gave me these extremely basic exercises and said they would increase the repetitions as time went by. I could do hundreds of these exercises. Never did they ask me what my goals were or what type of exercise I regularly did. The therapy assistant that I saw today asked me what type of injury I had! I am trying to adapt to a lifestyle change not recover form an injury, they don't seem to be able to do that.
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.
