Orlando Orthopaedic Center
The other day I went to the Orlando Orthopaedic Center for a sprained ankle. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Dr. Funk and his staff. Once I entered the office, I was warmly greeted by the front desk staff and was checked in for my appointment. After sitting for just a few minutes, I was brought back by Dr. Funk’s staff for my appointment. I informed the nurse how I sprained my ankle and the amount of pain I’ve been in. Then we discussed some of my medical history. I had sprained the same ankle when I was a teenager playing softball. I was in an air cast for a week. Because of this previous injury, I was concerned about the amount of time I would have to be off my ankle this time. I have a very active two year old son. After I was finished with my discussion with Dr. Funk’s nurse, she left the room, and Dr. Funk entered shortly after she walked out. He examined my ankle and tested my range of motion. Luckily, I have a great family support system and have people that can help me with my son. Trying to keep my off my feet as much as possible with a two year old is a very hard task. Thanks to the excellent care of Dr. Funk and the staff at Orlando Orthopaedic Center I am on the road to recovery and look forward to running around with my son again soon!

Matthew R. Willey, MD
Dr. Matthew Willey has been a much needed addition to my medical team. I became his patient about fifteen months ago, seeking relief for chronic back pain. I had seen other doctors but Dr. Willey was the best fit for my desire to remain as physically active as possible. I am 54 years old and an active, albeit not super fast, marathon runner. While I will eventually need surgery, I have already had one spinal surgery fifteen years ago and am in hurry for additional surgery. I also try to avoid narcotic pain relief whenever possible. Dr. Willey works with me for pain relief and adaptive measures to meet my activity goals. I find it easy to get an appointment when I need one, as long as I am flexible about which office I book. I appreciate his upbeat attitude and his willingness to fully involve me in the decision making process. I would strongly recommend Dr. Willey to anyone who is seeking relief from back pain.

Been going to this practice for10 years and have seen three different Doctors for different problems and they have all been the finest and most professional doctors you can trust for the care you need. Dr Bonenberger has done several operations on me and never had any problems he's the best.

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.
