Get a second opinion

Brain and spine surgery can be intimidating. A second opinion offers reassurance. We can generally arrange an appointment with a neurosurgeon in 1-3 business days. Check with your insurance plan to see if a second opinion appointment is covered and if Gundersen is considered an in-network or out-of-network provider.
