Orthopaedic surgery second opinion
Confidence in your diagnosis and treatment plan is paramount. A second opinion can help to confirm your existing diagnosis and treatment plan, or contemplate an alternative approach treatment.
Board-certified and fellowship trained orthopaedic spine surgeon Dr. Kern Singh provides second opinions by reviewing your records, MRIs and/or X-rays.
While Dr. Singh always prefers to examine patients and listen to their story, he understands it’s not always possible in a second opinion. Even if you do not live in Illinois, Dr. Singh can still help via virtual consultation. Many other orthopaedic surgeons in the region trust Dr. Singh’s opinion, and routinely send complex patients or family members to him for second opinions, consultations and surgery.
The benefits of a second opinion
After reviewing your case history, MRIs and/or X-rays, Dr. Singh can provide you with:
- Additional knowledge about your diagnosis
- Additional knowledge about your treatment options
With this additional information, you can compare diagnosis and treatment results between multiple physicians and confirm the diagnosis and treatment plan are the best option for you.
