Is surgery necessary or are there alternative treatment options? Does the joint have to be replaced or can joint-preserving measures be resorted to? These and similar questions arise when one has been injured or has been suffering from a musculoskeletal disorder for some time.

An operation needs to be well considered. Sometimes it makes sense to get a second medical opinion as a patient, especially if a major surgical procedure is imminent.

A second medical opinion can give you peace of mind and help you make a decision. It can show you possible alternatives and perhaps help you better understand difficult or unclear diagnoses. Educate yourself extensively so you can make informed decisions and get the best care possible. We will be happy to help you do so.
