Yes, sometimes you have to keep looking for a surgeon that you will have confidence in.Well! So what do i do now! Has anyone gone for a third opinion????
It matters a lot who you see for a second opinion. Personally I would never take my knee issues to a DO or regular MD, or anyone who didn’t specialize in TKR.And one of the local transplant surgeons who could provide another opinion is a DO. Is it better to just go with an MD or does it matter?
Listen to the surgeon who specialises in doing revisions. He has the practical experience, whereas a transplant surgeon and a medical director have different areas of expertise.Should one give more weight to the opinion of a surgeon who does a lot of revisions; or to the opinion of a surgeon who does a lot of transplants (and is now medical director of the hospital)? Thank you.
