Dr. Martin has been managing my nerve pain since 2008. He has always been interested in my needs and complete health. He does not just medicate...he heals. He has always provided needed relief to my difficult nerve pain and has also delivered counseling as to future surgeries or treatment. Because of him I have been able to do my job and enjoy my life. I consider him one of my special "life team." He and his staff have always worked very hard to respond to my needs and time constraints. I have and will continue to recommend him to my friends and family for any type of pain management and relief.

5 stars are not enough. Dr. Irby and his team backed up by a thoroughly professional surgical staff with Henrico Doctors Hospital, Parham Rd facility did wonders for my back. The surgery went well, follow up was superb, recommended therapy was more than adequate, and now I am able to move without pain. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr Irby and his team's services and professionalism to anyone with back issues requiring surgery.
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.
