Dr. Cully Alton Cobb III, MD
Over 33 years ago I developed hydrocephalus while playing in the NFL and underwent 3 emergency VP Shunt brain surgeries and several gran mal seizures in an 8 month period. Dr. Cobb stepped in after I was brought in in a coma when my first shunt failed while in Mexico in 1982. Since that time I have undergone a total of 9 emergency VP shunt brain surgeries and several gran mal seizures. Dr Cobb has not only been a consumate professional, he has taken the time to engage my family during many of the emergencies.

Dr Coward performed two surgeries in 1984 to repair a knee I damaged playing in the NFL in 1981. The last surgery was an experimental implant. Since that time I have been as active as I ever was and have not had a surgery since. I would highly recommend Coward to any injured atheletes.

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.
