Get a Second Opinion from top orthopedic doctors

Evidence-based, bias-free and personalized medical opinion

Successful management of a chronic disease requires that you be well-aware of all your treatment options.

How can a second opinion help?

What could be more important than arriving at a right decision for your or loved one’s health? Sound decisions require that you be well-informed about all your treatment options and their relative benefits versus risks.

Unfortunately, relying on generic information sourced from the internet and word of mouth from friends or family can leave you more confused than ever. For this reason, you should be careful when using online consultation websites that offer generic and risky advice that is not evidence-based and lacks the rigor a medical opinion requires.

Medicine takes years and years to gain expertise. Why compromise when you can have a specialist provide a medical opinion that takes your unique medical condition and needs into account.

Conservative Treatments

Physical therapy, medication, visco-supplements, injections and several other options exist that can help you get much-needed pain relief and lead to a better quality of life.

When you visit your local doctor, it is natural they emphasize a particular treatment approach depending on their area of expertise.

However, when you request a medical opinion from an independent expert from the HealthClues panel, you can rest assured you will receive information about all possible treatment options.

Surgical Treatments

Have you been advised that you need a knee or hip replacement, or ACL reconstruction? Are you wondering if surgery is the only option left? Do you have questions regarding post-surgery complications?

Unfortunately, even if you visit multiple doctors in your local area, you may still not get all the right answers.

This is where HealthClues comes in, whose mission is to ensure that you are entirely confident of the decision to undergo surgery and well-prepared for the same.

Advanced Treatments

Medicine is an ever-changing and evolving industry. New advances keep pouring in but may take several years before they are deemed safe and mainstream. As a patient, how do you go about evaluating whether a new technology is your best alternative; and the risks and benefits it carries?

Obtaining this information from the doctor who is championing the new technology is a hard nut to crack. Accessing the latest findings hidden in medical research is usually out of reach, or hard to comprehend.

HealthClues enables you to poll multiple medical experts on such new techniques, as well as having our medical research team conduct a deep dive into the latest research.

Why consult through HealthClues?

You may have easy access to top doctors in your city for a direct consultation. You can get information from the internet including few online consultation websites, and some even offer free advice. However, if you just rely on those, then you will be missing important pieces of the puzzle that HealthClues can provide.


Top notch surgeons

Evidence-Based Medical Opinion

Even the most reputed doctors agree that medical decisions are complex and often subject to influences such as a physician preference for an aggressive vs. conservative treatment, patient expectations for quick relief, and financial pressures to grow in a competitive industry.

We can help you overcome a possible judgment error by ensuring that our panelist receives only medically relevant information. You can also have multiple experts independently review your case.

Bias elimination

Unbiased Medical Opinion

When you visited a doctor for a second opinion, did you end up sharing the medical opinion received from the previous doctor? Even when you do not share it explicitly, your body language and anxiety may reveal it. Research has shown that knowledge of the previous opinion leads to a biased opinion that is mostly in conformity with the first opinion.

Consultation through HealthClues helps you keep the medical opinion as objective as it can be.

Multiple opinions

Patient Empowerment

Were you able to openly express yourself and get all your questions answered in a direct face-to-face consultation? A busy surgeon may not have enough time to listen, may not be a good communicator, or you simply don't feel confident enough to ask any uncomfortable or awkward questions.

Well, now is your time to ask anything you like from our experts. We will even guide you to ask questions that are specific to your health condition.

Patient empowerment

Personalized

Our team prepares a thorough medical case capturing your medical history and reports, so our orthopedic expert can provide you a personalized opinion as per your state of health. Let the experts help you make a major decision instead of relying on generic information and unreliable free advice from consultation websites or just word of mouth.

Medical expertise requires years of education and many more years of practice. Get the experts on your side instead of relying on the low-quality information.

What research says about Second Opinion

A study, published in American Journal of Medicine, found that when confronted with uncertainty on diagnosis and treatment aspects, second opinion benefitted more than 40% patients through better diagnosis and change of treatment plan.
Just like an unnecessary surgery can do more harm than good, a delayed surgery is no better. For instance, a study published in the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery demonstrated that when a hip replacement was inevitable but was delayed, it resulted in worse outcomes for the patient.
Even experienced doctors admit that there’s a gray line between suggesting a surgery or not. A study published in Journal of Health Services Research and Policy found that opinions on elective surgery procedure did not match over 30% of the time.
