Medical Second Opinion - Research based studies

Two recent studies have shown that seeking a second medical opinion may result in changing the course of treatment; or getting a different diagnosis. In a University of Michigan study of breast cancer patients, more than 50% of them changed their treatment plan after getting a second opinion on their diagnosis from a “tumour board” of oncologists, surgeons and radiation therapists. In a Johns Hopkins University study of around 6,000 cancer patients, researchers found that one to two percent patients who sought a second opinion after a tumour biopsy had received a misdiagnosis.

My right arm got weak and floppy and I could not move my leg where I wanted it to go. My doctor diagnosed it as spinal stenosis with cervical myelopathy. The surgeon’s treatment recommendation was a cervical spine fusion which is a major surgery involving a long hospital stay and several screws and plates in the neck. My daughter insisted me on getting a second opinion. I went online to request the second opinion. I submitted the case on bestdoctor.com with the needed reports and images. I got a second opinion report from an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in spine cases which was very timely and helpful. The doctor confirmed the cervical spinal stenosis diagnosis, but did not see any evidence of the spinal compression that is indicative of cervical myelopathy. He indicated that surgery was not needed at that point in time. I was able to send two more follow-up questions which helped to further clarify his decision to delay the neck fusion. Also, my symptoms have continued to improve. The entire team couldn’t have been kinder or more understanding of my condition and helpful throughout the process.
