Getting a Second Opinion
Empowering Women to make Healthcare Choices
Did you know that more than 50% of women do not receive a second opinion before undergoing a gynecologic procedure? At TangchitnobMD, we encourage patients to seek a second opinion before agreeing to any procedure or treatment plan. Our team makes it a priority to answer your questions about your condition and recommended procedures so you can feel confident about your future and your healthcare choices. Most physicians are not equipped with the extra training necessary to provide a fully informed opinion, particularly in regard to minimally invasive surgical techniques. Dr. Edward Tangchitnob can answer your questions and help you make the right choice for you. Often times, procedures can be done in a minimally invasive manner with robotic surgery, laparoscopy or hysteroscopy. Sometimes surgery is not needed at all!
Should I get a second opinion?
If your doctor has recommended surgery to you as a remedy for a gynecologic condition you are suffering from, we strongly encourage you to seek out a second opinion. You can schedule an appointment with our Tangchitnob MD gynecology practice today to further discuss your condition and alternative treatments.
Learn About Minimally Invasive Surgery
Every year in the United States, approximately 600,000 women undergo hysterectomies - but as many as 80% of these procedures are performed using old surgical methods involving an open abdominal incision and extensive hospitalization and recovery. This is not necessary due to the minimally invasive surgical techniques that are available today, including laparoscopic, robotic, and vaginal surgery.
The benefits of these less invasive procedures include:
- Less scarring
- Shorter hospital stays
- Minimal blood loss
- Less post-operative pain
- Shorter recovery times
- Faster return to your normal life
