Neurosurgery / Brain / Stroke / Paralysis
Please remember that a second opinion based only on images and medical records is necessarily limited to what is contained in those files. It cannot replace an in-person medical evaluation from a qualified physician. Getting a second opinion from one of our neurosurgeons will not offend your current doctor – it’s simply a means of empowering and educating yourself about your condition and your options. The ultimate decision is yours to make but rest assured that our experts are standing by to help you make the right choice.
We all know how confusing and frightening it can be to get a diagnosis that requires brain surgery. Getting a second opinion is always a good idea as there are many advanced imaging techniques and minimally invasive procedures available today, and any patient would be wise to get a second opinion from another neurosurgeon.
Second Medic can provide you with the peace of mind that comes with knowing your options and having experts to guide you in making your decision. The program offers a thorough review of your previous images and diagnosis and an evaluation of the recommended treatment, followed by our written report.

We can do a review of your diagnosis and treatment plan and provide the written report
Our Review and Report process will confirm your diagnosis, or suggest additional tests. Many tumors and other neurosurgical conditions look-alike on initial imaging, and an accurate diagnosis is absolutely critical to creating the best treatment plan. If we have any reason to believe your diagnosis needs confirmation, we may recommend additional advanced imaging or other tests to verify your condition.
Provide information about treatment options. Not every doctor or hospital has access to the most advanced technology or has specialized training to perform minimally invasive surgery. We may be able to suggest a minimal-access alternative to open surgery that your doctor is not able to provide.
Assess your risk. Different treatment options carry different risks, often depending on the age and general health of the patient, the patient’s medical history, and the family history. Our second opinion report will assess your risk based on your own individual situation.
