"He is a really good, caring guy. He was very informative and available about the procedure. He answered any questions I had while my husband was in recovery. It was a good experience.

"From the very start, I found Dr.
to be a "no nonsense" kind of Dr. She kidded me as being one of those Guitar player people. And" because we do abuse our hands for hours at a time, she probably has grown to recognize us as we walk in the door. That said, she asked me why I waited so long to have this looked at. I wasn't sure how to answer, so I just told her the truth.. I was afraid. She carefully examined my hand, noticed my callouses (and possibly the neatly trimmed nails on my left hand only) and asked specific questions regarding how long before fingers go numb etc..Even though I was convinced that she could clearly see my problem, she wasn't so quick to just stamp a number on me and send me down the assembly line. She was interested in how I planned to rehabilitate after the surgery and what my future plans were for guitar playing. When I told her that I would do as she said regarding those things, she began to explain. I will ruin what she just fixed if I do not allow time for healing. It seemed that she wanted to hear my side and how interested I was in a successful outcome before she would agree to do the surgery. She may have agreed to do it anyway without my assurances of cooperation but as least she knew that I knew how recovery would go if I did not listen to her advise and follow her instruction. She seemed interested in long term success. and so was I.. Well, I did as she told me, and today I have a wonderful fully functioning hand. She repaired the trigger finger that required a ligament release/repair on the middle finger and she corrected the CTS . No more numb fingers..!! Where I couldn't play through even 1 song before , now after surgery I can play without any numbness at all through several. I don't play for hours on end like I used to , because as Dr.
explained CTS is an overuse injury. My hand is strong and fully usable....so I moderate my playing to keep it that way..I show of the surgery sites and have told many of my experience. I have had to actually draw a pen line on the incision line because they are that hard to see. So now 18 months later I went back to Dr.
to get my right hand done as it developed the exact same trigger finger and CTS. She was warm and friendly. Now that I knew what to expect, I was much more prepared to get the right hand done. I am now 1 month post surgery and back to work. Surgery sites, beautiful, clean, neat, hardly a scar to see!! I am taking care during the recovery time because I know I will experience a full recovery if I continue to follow her instructions. She knows what she is doing, and her staff is just awesome.!! Thank you for giving me my hands back !!

Orthopedic doctors treat patients of all ages for injuries and conditions affecting the skeletal system, and associated muscles, joints and ligaments.

The most important thing when it comes to trampolines is to be aware of the risks and the safety guidelines to minimize your child's risk for injuries, says Jacobs. (Photo by The San Antonio Orthopaedic Group)

Chuck Clifford came to lying 
flat on his back on an icy sidewalk, motionless and unable to move his limbs. The life of the Angie’s List member in Mundelein, Ill., changed with a single, fateful slip during 
a 2008 ice storm that fractured

a millimeter of completely severing 
his spinal cord.

Sounds like you should be pursuing a disability claim.  Also, you could speak to your previous doctor frankly about your concerns.  
Have they made orthotics for your shoes that distribute your weight better?

Whoops - I just realized that you may have been looking for Angie's List information on providers outside your home market. To see information on providers that aren't in your home Angie's List chapter, you can elect to pay a small addditional fee (generally about $15 to $20) to add another city's Angie's List to your existing memember.

Hello, this is Kyle K from the Member Care Department.

I apologize for my delay. I apologize, but orthopedic surgeons fall under our Orthopedics category which is included in the Health list. Currently, you're enrolled in our Basic membership which only includes access to our Home list.
 
If you'd like to upgrade your membership to the Plus or Premium plan, we'll be happy to assist you with this search. If interested, give us a call at 1.888.944.5478 and we'll take care of this adjustment. Again, I do apologize for any misunderstanding.

Hi,

 

This is James W. with Member Care. Thanks for posting your question.

 

It looks like when you signed up online on 8/5/2014, that you accidentally joined our greater Portland chapter instead of our Salem/Corvallis chapter that your zip code falls under. I have transferred your subscription to that chapter, so you will now have access to the correct area.

I hope this information helps! Please let me know if I can assist further. You can respond to this thread or submit a new Answers post. You can also reach us at 1-866-783-2980. We're open weekdays from 8:00 am - 9:00 pm and Saturdays 8:00 am - 5:00 pm ET.

 

Thanks again!

He has a great bedside manner and explains what is wrong to me well. He is very thorough. I have no issues with scheduling an appointment and I never have to wait to get seen.

Had a spinal fusion in August of 2014 and have not walked without assistance since. I now have nerve damage to the peroneal nerve that causes foot drop, numbness and tingling of the foot and lower leg (right side), and issues with bowel control. I would not recommend this physician to anyone. I am searching for a neurosurgeon to try to repair the damage, but may be crippled the rest of my life because of this surgeon. I am only 58.

I have been going to him for about fifteen yes. I was a runner and had knee problems. He kept me going. He is very knowledgeable. He was able to tell me exactly what was wrong with my knee. He really seemed to know what he was doing. He told me what my options were and he never pushed me. I really appreciated the fact that he was honest to me. He is very personable and has a great bedside manner. When some of the staff in the hospital did some incorrect things for my care, he took care of everything. I felt that he was my advocate and was interested in my healthcare.

I have found them very good; their physical therapy group is very good, and I not only progressed with it, but enjoyed it, but you have to be using a doc from their group to use the PT services. I have had 7 surgeries total with their docs and have always been satisfied with their bedside manners and results; I've been treated very well by their other employees every time!

I saw the PA and he began treatment with medications, explained what would come next if this didn't work. Medications worked well, went for follow up and had MRI to determine extent of damage. PA provided options and consequences. Very informative, he listened, advised but didn't push. Since it was a surgeon's office, I was pleasantly surprised that they didn't jump right to surgery!

He's an excellent surgeon. He thoroughly explains things so you can understand what options and treatment is best for you. I've been going to him for over 10 years and will continue with him even after I move out of state.
