Get a Second Opinion – Chest Surgery, Diagnosis & Treatment

  • “Are you interested in knowing if you are suitable for keyhole thoracic surgery?”
  • “Are you seeking reassurance about your treatment choices?”
  • “Are you unable to get the answers that you need?”
  • “Has your doctor told you that keyhole thoracic surgery is not safe?”

In response to the increasing demand that we receive for our valued medical opinion, we have created two ways for you to access us to get a second opinion at our clinic. Our medical second opinion services are available IN-CLINIC, which involves meeting Mr Scarci or one of his medical colleagues, and we’ll happily discuss your circumstances. Alternatively, if you live a long distance from us, we also offer an ONLINE consultation service. Our second opinion online service can be very convenient for our patients and enables them to speak directly with one of our Specialists without travelling to see us. Whichever medical second opinion services you choose to go for, you can be confident that we will be attentive to your needs and that all your questions are answered at the end of the process.

To arrange to speak to a second opinion doctor please book an appointment, or get in touch today.

Medical Second Opinion Services

We understand that receiving the news that you need to undertake life-changing thoracic surgery can leave you with many questions. Maybe you have concerns about the procedure, you are unsure about the choices available, or you need further understanding of what’s involved and whether surgery is best for you. Having the option to review your diagnosis or the treatments available to you is very important for us.

Finding the right source to get a second opinion is vital as you want to ensure that who you choose is a trusted source and the information and advice you are receiving is the best available to you. In today’s online world, there are many resources available to patients. Being able to tell the difference between professional, expert second opinions and misinformation is not always as straightforward as it should be.

We have over 12 years of keyhole expertise and are enormously proud of our reputation of providing world-class treatment and advice, including surgery within two weeks of assessment, to many patients who have trusted our services. Our specialists also deliver traditional open surgery if it is felt that this is best for you.

Should I Be Getting a Second Opinion Before Surgery?

Getting a second opinion online or in-person can be helpful to provide reassurance and be fully informed before deciding to undergo heart surgery. There are many reasons why patients choose to get a second opinion before surgery, with some of the most common reasons being:

  • Those who have multiple conditions or medical problems and wish to have a thorough understanding of the available options.
  • Patients who have not seen an improvement in their condition whilst undergoing existing treatment.
  • Those who want to explore if the diagnosis in more detail and surgery is the only option
  • Those who are unsatisfied with advice and treatments they have already received.

Medical second opinion services provide the opportunity for patients to find out more and re-evaluate their circumstances. Undergoing thoracic surgery isn’t something you want to rush into, and it’s only natural that if you have only had one doctor or medical institution’s point of view and diagnosis, you may want a second opinion. That’s where we are happy to help you get all the information you need and give you access to leading experts who lecture all over the world.
