The Importance of a Second Opinion

At Performance Rehabilitation & Regenerative Medicine we believe second opinions are an important component to educating and empowering the patient in making well informed medical decisions.

If you find yourself experiencing a complex orthopedic condition and your physician is recommending surgery, it is best to know all of your treatment options. Getting a second opinion could change your diagnosis, your treatment and your lifestyle.

When should I seek a second opinion?

  • When you don’t feel like you are being heard.
  • When you are not being offered options or feel like they might not be comprehensive.
  • When you’re not getting better, despite complying with your doctor’s recommendations.
  • When your doctor recommends a serious, but non-emergency surgery.  Disappointment with your current treatment results.
  • When you are told there is nothing that can be done for your condition.
  • When your doctor recommends surgery as the ONLY treatment option.
  • When your condition is unresponsive or returns after treatment.
  • When the doctor is unable to give you an accurate diagnosis.

Performance Rehabilitation & Regenerative Medicine recommends seeing one of our non-surgical orthopedic specialist to educate you on the best surgical alternative for your condition.

Our Pledge to You: Honesty and Stewardship

After a comprehensive physical exam and review of medical records, our physicians will tell you whether they believe you ARE or ARE NOT a candidate for non-surgical treatments (including regenerative injection therapy). We will not waste your resources if we think we cannot help you.
