Frequently Asked Questions


What hospital do you use?

I currently practice at Providence Northeast Hospital and The Surgery Center at Midlands Orthopaedics. Providence NE is a modern small suburban facility. A very friendly and personal atmosphere exists. The administration is very supportive and the staff knows my total joint program and executes it well. I am confident that you will thoroughly enjoy your stay at this facility. The freestanding ambulatory Surgery Center adjacent to Midlands Orthopaedics & Neurosurgery’s Blanding Street office in Columbia provides an efficient, cost-effective alternative to the traditional hospital stay for patients who meet specific clinical criteria for surgeries covered by their insurance plans in that setting..

What type of insurance do you accept?

I am a partner of Midlands Orthopaedics. Our group has contracts with numerous insurance companies. Our insurance department can assist you with specific questions.

In addition, Providence Northeast Hospital and Midlands Orthopaedics have developed a single global package price of approximately $30, 000 that is available to any insurance if they wish to pay in advance and agree to limit the patient co-pay to 10%. This includes the hospital, implant, surgeon, assistant, anesthesiologist, radiologist, and pathologist fees. We also offer a discounted global package to patients paying cash for these services.

Due to consistent fee cuts over the last 10 years as well burdensome overregulation and unfunded mandates by the government, I have decided to no longer accept new patients covered by government programs. This includes Medicaid, Medicare, TriCare, and Worker's Compensation.
