finding doctors, the right ones
I have been on this board for a while,, I have LS and Cervical issues which will soon need to be addressed.
I have been looking up doctors, procedures, new technologies till I am more confused than ever.
I read stories of the artificial disc replacements and read of patients going to Europe and various places inthe USA as well.
I just wish that there was a central "booking " so to speak where we patients could input our medical data and the best choices for us would come out on a data sheet with doctors who do the procedures we need listed right there.
It seems that if you go to the ortho doctor A you get A opinions as to what you need, and when you go to ortho doc B you get B options,,, then it gets really crazy when you go to neuro doc D and boy ,, a whole new bag of worms,,
I hear the Texas Back Institute doctors are fine, but then I also heard that a group of doctors in Northern Virginia do a fine job.
I just heard about Dr Jho from PA that have innovative technique as well.
It would cost a boatload of money to go to these variuos docs just to get their take on each case, and then , how to choose ?? how to choose??
Sorry,, guess I am just venting,, I just wish I could find one someone who could direct me - and all of you- as to the best place to get our backs fixed!!
