Get a Second Opinion

For those back and neck pain sufferers who have exhausted non-surgical treatment options, spine surgery may be the next step in resolving a spine problem.

But because spine surgery is a serious decision, it is a good idea to obtain a second opinion. A second opinion at a spine center can provide you the following benefits:

  • Determine if you have considered all possible treatment options and if there are any other non-surgical options can relieve symptoms without the need for surgery.
  • If spine surgery is necessary, what type of spine surgery should be performed. You may not need a complex fusion procedure that was initially recommended.
  • Do you qualify for minimally invasive spine surgery in day surgery, and be home later that same afternoon, for a faster recovery and return to activity.
  • Could you benefit from a second opinion? And is it worth the time and expense to travel to a spine center?
  • By filling out the form below, the specialists at Black Hills Neurosurgery & Spine may be able to advise you if a second opinion would be helpful and worth the expense.
  • Complete the form below, and click the submit button. Someone will email you back within the week.
