A second opinion from our comprehensive, convenient network of experts can bring comfort and answer your questions:

  • "Do I have the right diagnosis?"
  • "Is the recommended treatment plan the best one for me?"
  • "Do I really need the surgery my doctor recommended?"
  • "Is there a newer or safer procedure or non-surgical option that may be right for me?"
  • "Does my surgeon have the expertise, experience or good track record for the surgery I need?"
