Dr. Wade M Sessions, MD
Dr. Sessions performed carpal tunnel surgery on both of my wrists. My unbearable pain is completely gone & has been ever since my surgery 5 yrs ago!!! I have no visible scars whatsoever! I would recommend him to anyone & will unfortunately be returning to him shortly for his expertise with my rapidly worsening degenerative discs in my lower back :-( . I know if anyone can help me, it will be him! He also just happens to have an equally incredible & friendly staff, which we all know, can weigh more heavily then one might expect on making the final decision in what doctor you choose to stick with. Even working with the woman who dealt with all the insurance hiccups was pleasant & polite to work with... even pretty funny! I thank them all for everyday that I'am able to live pain free & continue my career as a cosmetologist & mother of 2 beautiful, young, wild & rambunctious children!! rambunctious free
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.
