Not all doctors think alike – some doctors may tend toward more aggressive and complex treatment modalities for symptoms sooner and without attempting other, less invasive options. Others may do extensive conservative treatment while leaving the patient wondering if something more aggressive can be done. Even if the patient feels confident about their diagnosis and is comfortable with the treating physician’s decision regarding neurosurgery care; it can still be very valuable to obtain a second opinion. This can be especial crucial before committing to a major surgery.
Healthpointe Medical Group realizes that there are many forms of treatment for the diverse conditions that affect the spine, brain, and central nervous system. Healthpointe has employed multiple neurosurgeons who have garnered exponential experience in this field and are fully capable of offering informative Second Opinions on individual issues and addressing all patient concerns. Healthpointe’s surgeons also offer successful alternatives to aggressive cranial or spinal surgery, such as minimally invasive surgery (MIS). Minimally invasive surgeries are performed through smaller incisions rather than “open” complex surgery. Healthpointe’s surgeons strongly prefer the utilization of MIS when feasible as these techniques are a highly regarded treatment option with a proven track record of averting complex surgical procedures and their complications as well as reducing costs, reducing recovery time, and maintaining quality of life.
Second opinions by licensed experts, especially the ones at Healthpointe, are significantly valuable to patients as they could save time, money and the patient’s well-being, especially when it comes to neurosurgery. Orange County Neurosurgeons like Dr. Blake Berman are fully informed and well versed in the treatment of various neurological disorders such as headaches, pain, numbness, muscle weakness, and other symptoms and ailments.
