How to find a good surgeon

Hi gang,

It's a pretty safe bet that if you're looking for an ethical orthopedic surgeon check to see if he's in a clinic with chiropractors or not. If he is, I'd find another surgeon.

Or you could just ask him to recommend a chiropractor. If he recommends one, you're probably better off finding another surgeon. If on the other hand he says he doesn't recommend chiropractic or tries to guide you in another direction then you know you've probably found an ethical doctor.

Finding an orthopedic surgeon has nothing to do with chiropractors. Personally, if I knew of an orthopedist that worked with chiropractors, I would go to them because obviously they are more open to other forms of treatment.
