Second Opinions

Decisions regarding your health should be made after you have been thoroughly informed about your diagnosis, prognosis and available treatment options.  Second opinions are a way to learn more about your diagnosis and expand your knowledge on all available treatment options most suitable for you.  At Rush Copley Neurosurgery, our surgeons understand the importance of second opinions and welcome all patients looking for an additional opinion on their diagnosis and treatment plan.

For patients with back and spinal problems, our surgeons will evaluate you to determine if surgery is necessary. If surgery is determined to be the best treatment plan, we will provide you with the most minimally invasive options available. Here, we also offer many motion preservation technologies that provide an alternative to a fusion such as the cervical artificial disc and interlaminar stabilization implants.  Also, dorsal column stimulators are an option when a fusion operation has been completed already by another doctor, but significant back and leg pain persist.

For patients with issues affecting the brain, we offer a wide array of cranial surgical options.  Patients in our community will appreciate not having to travel a far distance to get the surgical care they need.

We recognize if you are looking for a second opinion,  you will want to be seen as soon as possible in order to make the most informed decision about your care. We will work with you to get you scheduled as quickly as possible. We ask that at the time of your appointment you provide us with any images you have related to your issue (MRI, CT, etc) and any other tests (EKG, EEG, visual tests, labs etc.) that were completed. Please call our office to schedule your appointment at 630-978-6770 or fill out this appointment request and we will contact you.
