Have You Been Diagnosed with A Spine Condition?
Have you been diagnosed with a complex spinal condition? Injuries or diseases to the cervical or lumbar spine can seriously impact your health and quality of life. If you were diagnosed with degenerative disc disease, stenosis, or other spine conditions and told that surgical intervention is the best treatment, you may want to consider getting a second opinion.
Second Opinion on Spine Surgery
A second opinion can provide valuable insight and more confidence in the diagnosis and course of treatment you ultimately decide on. You should not feel any hesitation or anxiety about wanting clarification from another medical expert. Any spine surgery is a significant undertaking. If you are uncertain about your diagnosis, surgeon or treatment modalities, a second opinion will allow you to make the most informed decision regarding your care.
Dr. David Barnett is a board-certified neurosurgeon and renowned expert in spinal care. He is a leader in minimally invasive, microscopic techniques and takes a conservative approach to every case he handles. He believes that patients should feel confident that they are making the best choice for their health.
When Should You Get a Second Opinion on Spine Surgery
- If you’ve been diagnosed with a complex spinal condition
- If you’re not getting better despite conservative treatment
- If you’re facing a surgical procedure
Why Seek a Top Neurosurgeon’s Second Opinion?
Dr. Barnett does not rush into surgery and takes a thorough approach to reach each diagnosis and recommended treatment. And this is why getting a second opinion from a respected Dallas neurosurgeon is a way to advocate for yourself. Getting spine surgery–no matter how minimally invasive–can be intimidating.
Has your doctor recommended non-surgical therapies to address your condition or moved straight to the operating table? Because many conservative non-surgical treatments can improve flexibility, reduce pain, and help the body heal naturally over time.
Moreover, there are few instances where patients need to rush into back surgery or neck surgery. Instead, give yourself the time to get a second set of eyes on your health from a top neurosurgeon. If two medical professionals recommend the same treatment or surgical procedure, you will feel more confident you’re taking the right path forward.
