Second Opinions on Orthopedic Surgery | Avoid Orthopedic Surgery

SECOND OPINIONS

I WAS TOLD THAT I NEED SURGERY… BUT IS SURGERY MY ONLY OPTION TO LIVE A PAIN FREE LIFE?

Patients often come to the Institute for a second opinion regarding a recommendation for surgery or regarding a treatment plan presented by other physicians. Second opinions offer insight into other treatment options that may or may not have been recommended by your first doctor. Seeking a second opinion provides benefit from an expert team of specialists who are leaders in their field. The new information may confirm a physician’s treatment plan, re-evaluate a diagnosis, examine other options and provide information to make an informed decision.

The physicians at Palm Beach Spine & Diagnostic Institute specialize in diagnosing difficult medical, orthopaedic and pain problems. Taking the time to complete a comprehensive evaluation and examination along with review of diagnostic tests allows our team to get to the root of your issue and not treat symptoms but rather the cause of your pain. Our philosophy is focused on healing at the source of pain – which often allows patients to avoid unnecessary surgery, injections, and tests.

The Institute offers innovative, leading edge, minimally invasive non-surgical technologies to address each patient’s unique situation. Our goal is to restore you to your optimum health and life as quickly as possible. Because we focus on the right level of care at the right time we are able to bypass unneeded tests and treatment protocols that often result in loss of time and prolonged pain.
