Orthopedic Surgery Second Opinion

Orthopedic Surgery Second Opinion

A common orthopedic pitfall is using x-rays as the sole tool in diagnosing orthopedic injuries. In emergency rooms, one of the most common medical errors are misdiagnoses in orthopedic situations1. About 20% to 30% of scaphoid fractures may not be seen on initial x-rays. In fact, among all fractures, about 5% of acute fractures do not appear on initial x-rays2.

There are many different types of orthopedic conditions that can affect patients of all ages. They can range from arthritis and bursitis which generally don’t require surgery, to dislocation and fractures that can require surgery.

If your orthopedic diagnosis includes a recommendation for surgery, seeking a second opinion may help you better understand the surgical risks, benefits, or potential complications.
