Second Opinions

At the outset of your care, it is imperative to arrive at an accurate and correct diagnosis. Commonly, patients are misdiagnosed with shoulder and hip problems when they actually they may have a disc herniation causing compression of a nerve and resulting pain. Nonsurgical options are optimized first prior to considering any surgery. Conservative modalities are usually exhausted such as pain management, physical therapy, epidural injections, and acupuncture before surgery. Most of the time, symptoms do resolve to these measures and surgery can be avoided.
