Paradise Footwear
I was suffering from my second bout with severe plantars faciitis and couldn't get rid of it doing the stretching exercises that initially cured it. I spent over $400 buying various shoe inserts online that didn't solve the problem. Frustrated, I discovered Paradise Footwear and decided to check them out. The store is run by a 25 year experienced certified pedorthist which is a specialist in using footwear-which includes shoes, shoe modifications, foot orthoses and other pedorthic devices-to solve problems in, or related to, the foot and lower limb. One visit and I was recommended a pair of inserts, shoes & slippers with excellent arch support. I was given a instructional handout about plantars faciitis and taught one exercise that I should do 90 seconds per day. Problem solved! If you are suffering from any type of foot pain, I highly recommend that you visit Paradise Footwear first before trying anything else. When you visit, be careful not to step on Papaya or Mai Tai.

Dr Metwally is my ortho surgeon. I had my right hip replaced and 1 week into recovery my femur broke. So back into the hospital for a "redo". In November I will have my left hip done. I am very confident in Dr Metally and the staff. PA Steven Reeder is great has a great bedside manner. I have been very comfortable with this whole "adventure"

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.
