I cannot say enough about the quality of care i received from Dr. Fishler. Not only did my leg heal beautifully, I believe he went far and above to ensure that i had the best possible chance for full recovery. His kindness, compassion and genuine interest in my case is so appreciated. I would whole heartedly recommend Dr. Fishler to any one in need of his services, and although I hope to never need to see him professionally again I would absolutely return if the situation warranted.

Excellent practitioner and surgeon. Not your normal case but Dr. Fishler and staff handled it with the utmost skill, professionalism and concern. Though the end did not result in a hip replacement due to all of the difficulties with my health, I am totally pleased with the outcome and quality of life that I am currently living.

In high school and at Arizona State University I tore my MCL. Two staples were placed in my knee each time. they help up remarkably. However, one came loose, a piece broke off that caused a serious infection. Dr. Fishler and his team performed surgery on my knee potentially saving my entire leg. Thank you!

Dr. Fishler is a great surgeon. He immediately recognized the urgency of my injury and quickly got me into surgery. Follow-up was a breeze and everyone in the office from the MA's to the front desk were helpful and polite. Wait time was minimal.

Staff was very quick to call us in for our appointment. Quickly went through the interview so that the Doctor can come in. P.A. was very patient, checked the incision, flexibility and extra time to explain what was next.

Knee replacement was a piece of cake. In one week I was off pain meds and driving. My scar is barely noticable after 1 year. Doctor was knowledgeable and attentive. A great staff. I should have done it earlier.

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.
