Colorado Orthopedic & Hand Surgery-Eric Young, MD
My husband had shoulder and hand surgery and the whole experience was a nightmare!!!! I would beware of using this doctor, my husband shoulder will never be the same and his hand is still the same painful mess it was before. After care was awful, when Dr. Y was told something didn't feel right he shrugged it off and did nothing, we demanded another mri and dr y waited a couple of months to authorize one and by then our deductible had started over and the damage to the shoulder was irreparable.

my surgical experience with dr young was terrible, horrific. i'm fairly sure he took the painkiller that was intended as a painblock for my finger, he did not return phonecalls, and he prescribed only painkillers with an ingredient i am allergic to - broke every promise he made prior to surgery. after surgery merely laughed at me and shrugged me off. pure nightmare, in my book.

The sleep technician was very cold and had no concern for my privacy. I asked that the door be kept closed to the sleep room, she refused. I ask for a place to hang my coat and she said very abruptly there was none. She made my visit very uncomfortable.
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.
