Had to have carpal tunnel, cubital tunnel and total shoulder replacement surgery and Dr David Wiley is a Christian and a great person first and an exceptional doctor. He never dismisses any concerns that you have concerning the problems that you may be experiencing. The staff and nurses are very professional and caring. You need ALL those things to be in a profession like the one that they are in.

Dr banit back DoctorAnkle and wrist forgot name of doctor did a great job was patient and willing to take extra steps to avoid surgery. Of course afternoon appointments in office were not timely due to emergencies but overall wasn't bad. Physical therapy was timely and started at appropriate level I was doing little steps to build muscle to harder exercises.

These folks are great HEALERS. Their faith in the Lord and knowledge of the orthopedic musculoskeletal field are unsurpassed. Their confidence in their applicable skills and helping us understand "why it hurts" is quite an attribute to their team. I have never felt more at home and cared for...Joe Rouse

I don't know what I would've done the past few months without Dr. Phillips and the staff at MGO. They were always professional and attentive while providing top-notch care the entire time. Dr. Phillips kept my spirits up by being so humorous and upbeat...it was a great experience.

When I first found out that I might have to have surgery I was very anxious. I came to see Dr. Malone soon after and my mind was immediately set at ease. I didn't have to worry about one thing after that and it felt amazing. I'm doing great now and its all thanks to MGO.

It's never exciting news when you need to get surgery but knowing that you are safe and in competent hands is half of the battle. Here I didn't even bat an eye. I knew I was covered and it would all go smoothly. I was right!

There is no one better than Dr. Malone. He has such a great bedside manner and he was very understanding when answering all of my questions. I would 110% recommend him.
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.
