Have several family members including myself that have been to Jordan Young for many different reasons and all have had wonderful care, from office visits to double knees and hips. I must say the experienced, professional and caring staff from the front door to out the door was amazing, I have recommended this group many many times and only received good news and thank you's from those that shows them. My personal experience is with Dr. Jordan who I find top-notch, from his knowledge to his bedside manner he is the best hands down. I had a wonderful experience this morning with Dr. Bonner he was knowledgeable kind and gave me good information and advice. I highly recommend them and if I could give them 10 stars I would!

I had surgery in July 2007 and Sept 2009 at which time I had both hips replaced. The surgeries went verywell and my after was excellent. I would highly recommend the Jones Seigel Institute and all of the staffthat participated in my care and after care. Very caring Doctors and Nurses.
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.
