My 20 year old brother had an AVM rupture about a month ago. Maryvale Hospital rushed my brother in a helicopter to Phoenix Baptist Hospital where he was admitted to ICU awaiting brain surgery to stop the bleed. He was unable to move the right side of his body and unable to say much. The entire staff was wonderful which made us feel a little better after everything that was going on. The nurses were caring and prompt to all my brother and family needs. The therapists were compassionate and friendly. We are truly grateful with all the staff! Surgery was a success and my brother is recovering very well. One week after the surgery my brother speech and memory have improved tremendously, began walking on his own and began to move his right arm. He was discharged home with outpatient therapy. Thank You Phoenix Baptist Staff!

I had surgery for a broken Tibia. Dr. Emily Squyer performed the surgery. To say that she did a fantastic job is really an under statement.It has been three days since the surgery and I am up walking around with a walker, able to drive a car and I am back to work doing EE Design Test work on UPS Systems. If you ever have the misfortune of having an accident such as I had, I would only recommend one person, Dr. Emily Squire.Al Beran

I could never get my prescriptions filled in a timely manner. They could never have all medication ready at one time. It would take multiple trips to the pharmacy and they would have to wait for doctors authorization. Very disappointed in Internal medicine in resolving this issue. Very frustrating.

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.
