i am considering out patient surgery with dr. pederson on stx. i meet with him today and was very impressed and liked him very much. i have had out patient surgey on stx twice before. i fell yesterday and broke my wrist bone in away that it needs a small rod and pins. i really need some input from other patients both positive and negative.please respond asap since the surgery needs too take place within 10 days before bone heals in the wrong way.THANK YOU ALL SO SO MUCH!
Years ago my son broke his wrist in a fall. Dr Pederson set it and put a cast on it. The next day we were scheduled to fly to California to see an orthopedic surgeon for my husband. I asked him to take a look at my son's wrist also. He did and said dr. Pederson did an excellent job in resetting it. We were pleased with what he did.
I had knee surgery for a torn meniscus by Dr. Pederson. Follow up visits after surgery take hours in his office. If you have a 1pm appt. you will be lucky if he sees you by 4 or 5pm. Thought he did a good job until after some time I started having the same problems. After having a new MRI on my knee in STT, by a different dr. I was told that the surgery he performed was not done properly. I also have seen Dr. Jackson of COG for back problems...after having seen her repeatedly for many months with no good results, was told by her that there was nothing wrong with me. I then went to another Ortho on STX (who by the way is no longer on STX), and another MRI, found out I had several herniated discs in my lower back. I know many people that are happy with both Pederson and Jackson. I am just sharing my personal experience.
VI Equicare lists several other Orthopedic Surgeons, here is the link:
There's WI-FI but you have to go to a certain part of the hospital to be able to access it. It was not available in the room on the floor my sister was in when she was in the hospital while recovering from surgery on 2 different occasions, earlier this year. At least, that was the case at the time.
Very inconvenient for someone that's not ambulatory.
BTW - Thanks for the correction.
(the acronym is SRMC- Schneider Regional Medical Center. wink)
You can tell how long I've been here!
