Neurosurgery Second
Opinion Program


Emory’s Neurosurgery Second Opinion Program offers you access to a team of internationally recognized surgeons and neuro-radiologists without leaving your home. After being diagnosed with a brain or spine condition, you may be frightened, anxious and have questions regarding your next steps in care. Getting a second opinion can help you make important treatment decisions and can provide peace of mind.

If you have received a diagnosis or recommendation for treatment and want another opinion, our program can help you make a more informed decision. Getting a second opinion from us is easy, convenient, and all done remotely.
