I heard on the radio this week about the surgery schedules for the Ravens' Ray Lewis and Lardarius Webb, who were both injured this past weekend ("Lewis on IR; return a hope," Oct. 18). I understand that pro athletes deserve good health care, but how about our kids? My daughter tore her ACL last spring while playing soccer. I followed our health insurance guidelines and took her to be x-rayed at a local Patient First. After being x-rayed, I had to take her to her pediatrician to get a referral to see an orthopedic surgeon.

As a physician who has devoted 25 years to caring for patients in our great state, I was deeply distressed to read Jay Hancock's column attacking the integrity of orthopedic surgeons and other doctors who rely on modern tools such as MRI and CT scans to diagnose patients' injuries and illnesses ( "Orthopedist-owned MRIs a recipe for soaring costs," Feb. 9). Mr. Hancock's claim that orthopedic surgeons drive MRI utilization and cost is contradicted by federal government data showing that more than 80 percent of all advanced imaging services paid by Medicare go to radiologists and free-standing radiology centers, not to orthopedic surgeons and other treating physicians.
