A second opinion is a great way to get an idea of how different surgeons plan to offer you care. It helps patients work out which surgeon they feel comfortable with. It helps you decide which treatment suits you the most.
However please remember that there are often a number of ways to achieve a good outcome for patients.
Some treatment is not controversial, such as needing antibiotics for infection. All doctors would agree on that.
However complex surgery can cause confusion for patients. Or when patients are given different ideas by different surgeons.
It’s important to remember that surgeons are naturally competitive. This helped them succeed in this challenging career. Although the vast majority of surgeons are professional and have the patients care at heart, there are surgeons who see that their opinion is the only opinion that counts.
Surgeons who work for Lawyers
Some surgeons work for solicitors. If a surgeon is critical of other surgeons, this can upset patients unnecessarily. Patients may lose confidence in their original surgeon.
Mr Uppal can offer a truly independent opinion for your care. He has a reputation for being sympathetic to patients and offering support where there is confusion. He prides himself on not criticising other surgeons to gain a business advantage. He will however speak plainly if needed.
