Having performed spinal surgery for a cumulative 30 years, my partner Dr. David Kramer and I regularly encounter patients who have received recommendations for surgery from other doctors that simply don’t address their needs. Why undergo surgery unless it’s absolutely necessary? In cases such as these, we explain to the patient what their non-surgical options are and encourage them to pursue these solutions rather than undergoing the knife.
As we’ve reviewed more and more cases like these, it has underscored a truth we’ve always known: second opinions are invaluable and can help save people from costly and invasive surgery.
Unfortunately, too many people simply don’t get spinal surgery second opinions, either because they are unaware of the value or because of the potentially prohibitive cost (particularly if your health insurance doesn’t cover the expense!).
To help address his need, we created Second Opinion Spine. Now, you can get trustworthy second opinions easily and economically.
Here’s how it works:
- Submit your contact information here.
- A member of our staff will contact you for more information about your spinal condition.
- One of our expertly trained surgeons (David or I) will review your case and contact you personally to give you a second opinion and discuss your options.
It’s just that simple.
If you are in need of a second opinion, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We are here to help!
