Qualifying Questions for a Second Opinion for Spine Surgery

Undergoing spine surgery is a big decision that must be undertaken with great care. Only very specific conditions benefit from spine surgery. A common reason that some patients experience a poor outcome following spinal surgery is when they have surgery for the wrong reason or undergo the wrong procedure. Getting a second opinion from our experienced surgeons who are conservative when it comes to surgery can help protect you from a poor outcome or give you the confidence that your are doing the right thing.

Our surgeons will take the time that you need to explain your treatment options so that you can make an informed decision about surgery. We have found that some patients have been told that they need cervical fusion surgery when a disc replacement procedure is a better option that preserves normal neck motion and allows for a quicker recovery. Other times, minimally invasive techniques can be used to avoid lumbar fusion surgery or allow it to be done it in a way that is less destructive to the surrounding tissues. Getting a second opinion from our surgeons is well worth the time and effort! Patients living in the nearby area can receive quality care without visiting our office. NJSS proudly offers telehealth services for patients living in the surrounding area. By utilizing telemedicine technologies, patients with back pain can access NJSS experts using a smartphone, desktop, laptop, or tablet. Telemedicine is convenient, easy, and gives patients an “in-office” experience without leaving home or the office.
