After the surgery Dr.

told me everything I wanted to know, including things I didn't even think I need to know, for making the best recover. Following his advice allowed for him to remove the cast in less than 4 weeks. He gave explicit instructions on the do's and
Las Vegas Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
'ts for recovering, and in less than 5 weeks I had my full range of motion back, something a friend of mine who had suffered the same fracture some years before never recovered. I think he could sense my anxiousness because he emphasized the importance of not over exerting my arm. I really have to thank him for that because I know that is the reason my friend didn't properly heal.His office has been very accommodating as far as scheduling. Upon each visit Dr.
Las Vegas Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
has answered all of my questions clearly and has given great advice on how best to continue with what I feel is a very rapid recovery. Words cannot fully express how grateful I am that Dr.

was my surgeon. Again, if you are in need of an orthopedic surgeon, Dr
Las Vegas Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
is amazing at what he does and I would personally recommend him to anyone I know.
Thank You Dr.

For a 15 minute office visit I was charged $ 375.00 which I thought was outrageous.The physican's billing department told me they accepted my insurance which is BCBS.As it turned out I had to pay out of paocket for the office visit.I would suggest you double check the insurnace details before hand.

"It took an entire week for my poor mother to finally get to see Dr.
Las Vegas Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
on the evening of January 15, 2007. The appointment was very rushed - no more than a 5-minute visit . X-rays from Urgent Care were quickly glanced at and then cortisone shots were administered to both of her knees with a follow-up appointment scheduled for February 02, 2007.
A PROPER PHYSICAL EXAMINATION OF THE PATIENT WAS NEVER PERFORMED! Specifically, have her remove her pants, take a look at the problem area(s) on both legs, check for bilateral or unliateral swelling, bruising pain, range of motion, etc.
A WALKER AND PHYSICAL THERAPY WERE NOT ORDERED IN A TIMELY MANNER TO GET HER OUT OF THE WHEELCHAIR AND HELP HER MOBILIZE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE AFTER THE FALL!
During the next 18 days until her follow-up appointment with Dr.
Las Vegas Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
, she was eventually able to stand, bear weight and walk once again, but with notable weakness (paresis - slight give, not a limp) in her left leg,
At the follow-up appointment on February 02, 2007 (which Dr.
Las Vegas Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
's nurse had attempted to cancel by telephone in late January 2007 until I made it clear that my mother was still having problems walking / still using a wheelchair for longer distances), I helped my mother demonstrate her walking difficulties for Dr.
Las Vegas Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
. He ordered a lumbar spine MRI to check for possible spinal stenosis or other nerve entrapment syndrome affecting the vertebral or other nerves.. A walker and physical therapy were ordered for her "only at my request". It is unlikely that Dr.
Las Vegas Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
would have ordered these services on his own. without my saying anything.
ONE AGAIN AT THIS SECOND FOLLOW-UP EXAMINATION A PROPER PHYSICAL EXAMINATION WAS NEVER PERFORMED! (take a closer look at her weak left leg, unless you have x-
Las Vegas Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
vision have her remove her pants, inspect the problem area(s) on both legs, check for bilateral or unilateral leg swelling, bruising, pain, range of motion, etc.)
My mother had just seen her neurologist (90-day dementia follow-up exam) 3 days before this second appointment with Dr.
Las Vegas Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
and the neurologist had told me that she should have physical therapy as soon as possible. Furthermore, if Dr.
Las Vegas Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
didn't order it for her on February 02, 2007, he would do so himself!
On the day (February 12, 2007) that the walker finally would have arrived to help properly mobilize her followed by in-home physical therapy that still needed to be scheduled, my mother suddenly suffered extensive bilateral pulmonary emboli due to a DVT (deep venous thrombosis - a blood clot) in her left leg - the affected problematic weak leg after her fall - that had broken free and traveled to her lungs via the inferior
Las Vegas Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
and her right heart.
As the Coronor's Office determined (on her death certificate) this was most likely due to her being relatively immobilized / wheelchair bound after her fall.
Irrespective of age, bilateral pulmonary emboli have a 50% fatality rate. My mother - a tough cookie without any significant health problems other than her dementia - survived the bilateral pulmonary emboli initially spending one week in the Valley Hospital ICU on a ventilator, but subsequently died 44 days later at "
Las Vegas Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
Hospice" of associated complications: hypoxia and hypoxic brain damage, on top of her underlying early severe Alzheimer's disease. This unexpected acute medical condition simply made everything much worse: she no longer could walk, speak (just yes or no) or eat and drink enough orally with assistance to survive.
I am always going to have a problem with the fact that Dr.
Las Vegas Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
never took the time or trouble to properly examine my mother at either of the appointments that she had with him. It's such an extremely basic low-tech medical procedure that should always be done when indicated, but then perhaps dementia patients aren't worth his time and effort? If he had, perhaps he would have found something to catch and prevent the DVT/pulmonary embolism in time?
Furthermore, as a practicing physician he should be aware of the fact that 50-60% (some authors even say as high as 80%) of DVTs are asymptomatic, that elderly patients like my mother are at a much greater risk of developing a DVT than younger individuals and that "immobility" of any sort is a major factor - if not "THE MAJOR FACTOR" - in their development. If a potentially fatal DVT was considered as a possible differential diagnosis, then perhaps a venous Doppler ultrasound examination should have been ordered, especially since DVTs are known to often present with few if any symptoms?
At the very least, a proper physical examination of my poor mother by this physician would have been warranted at the first appointment that she had with him on January 15, 2007 and something (walker, physical therapy, etc.) should have done for her with respect to preventing the potential development of a fatal DVT due to immobility! What a shame, it's such a
Las Vegas Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
thing to do for a fellow human being. There really is really no reason for a little old lady (still full of life, speaking, talking, walking and interacting with everyone) to die as a result of a fall in which she didn't break any bones or suffer any other sort of serious injury (head, etc.)!
I should also mention in closing that when Dr.
Las Vegas Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
's office was eventually informed about what happened, we received no words of regret or anything from
Las Vegas Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
and Spine Center - no sorry for your loss, nothing. When something goes wrong due to potential negligence/sloppiness on the part of the physician, the patient and his family are treated like pariahs - like it's their fault. It's truly amazing what morally bankrupt individuals some physicians are!

"I have been a patient here for about six months. The doctor is good. The staff is very friendly. They know the latest techniques and procedures. They deal with the more complicated issues."
C
"I had to wait a long time and I didn’t find the office to be very efficient. It seemed a little impersonal because the office is very large. They were friendly enough, but you feel like you are in a hospital because it is so big and it feels like no one knows your name."

"My leg was operated on - there was a fracture just below the knee and ruptured tendons in both my knee and ankle. He fixed both the ankle and the knee and I am on the road to recovery. I had considerable reconstruction in both my left knee and ankle, with the ankles tendons and ligaments being re-strung and tightened, but was able to start physical therapy within a month of my surgery and I continue to heal and progress."

"This is one of the finest orthopedic surgeons in the Las Vegas area. He is very thorough in explaining what is to be accomplished and what I needed to do as a patient. The explanation was given in an easily understood manner and any questions were answered so that I understood and was treated as an important question."

"We were very pleased. everything has went great. My husband had surgery on his wrist and everything was turned out great. I would highly recommend him. He is very patient, professional, and takes the time to explain everything to you. "

"I broke my leg on 11/21 and was referred to Dr
Las Vegas Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
and LJ completed my surgery on 12/2. I visit him every few weeks for x-rays and progress reports. I enjoy his staff and really love that the office has email that is checked by the nurse. Any 'silly' question I had was answered by his nurse. I am still not walking but getting closer."
