If you go to Adlap.com, the doctor's for PA are listed there along with contact numbers. The figures for the surgery vary with each patient. I think it's based on your insurance and what procedure will be done. I had surgery with Dr. Redan and Gerhart in March 2001. I am going again this Thursday Feb. 20th at 8:30 a.m. You are doing good by asking all the right questions. Read my story on the quilt under Karen Carter, Woodbridge, VA. I hope this helps. Best of luck and Pain Free Days ahead.
Just a quick side note, I am in Northern Virginia, we are buried under a TON of snow and more to come.
