If you’re unsure about a diagnosis or treatment plan from your doctor, you should always get a second or even third opinion. If you have been recommended surgery but would like to see if you have non-surgical options, make sure you see a specialist who is qualified to evaluate and treat your problem area non-surgically, such as an MD or DO with sub-specialty training in Interventional Orthopedics.
