Dr. Cynthia Kooima is an amazing surgeon and her staff is the same. She is never in a hurry, always spends as much time as you need and gives you great information to make a decision on. I had my right knee replaced in 2014 by Dr. Kooima. I had suffered right knee problems for 20 years and had 5 total operations on it before the replacement. Dr. Kooima did the last repair in 2010. My recovery time was ½ of the other repairs. I also was back to work full time six weeks after the replacement and totally pain free in 4 months. I have been told by other people with knee replacements it took up to a year to be pain free. I now live in Las Vegas and need my left knee replaced. I am traveling to Gilbert so Dr. Kooima can do the surgery on the 22nd of February. I figure the cost of having it done in Gilbert over Las Vegas is over $10K but I don’t want any other doctor working on me.

Not your average shoe store. They have shoes that are built to last, and built for comfort and support. I bought a pair there about 3 years ago, and I still wear them now, roughly every other day. I plan on going back for another pair to replace the cheap shoes I bought at a regular shoe store just 6 months ago. It's true that these shoes are more expensive than other places, but they are also much better made, and last a lot longer.

He is a professional who takes care of his clients and takes a real interest in your health and your feet. I highly recommend him if you stand on your feet for long periods of time like I do for events. He even did a free foot screening for my little boys soccer team.Number One In My Book!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Jason

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.
