What is a complimentary MRI review?
A complimentary MRI review is a free service offered by the spine experts at Spine Center Atlanta. If you already have an MRI showing your spine condition, one of their experienced physicians reviews the image and talks with you about your treatment options.
When might I need a complimentary MRI review?
Getting a second opinion helps many patients clarify the next step in their treatment for a spine condition. A complimentary review allows you to make an informed decision when you face difficult choices about neck or back surgery.
You especially need a second opinion when your current physician suggests you can’t have minimally invasive surgery. There are such vast differences between open and minimally invasive surgery that you deserve a second opinion before choosing open surgery.
Though some patients aren’t good candidates for minimally invasive techniques, most people can avoid the trauma of open surgery.
The only way to know what’s best for you is to consult orthopedic surgeons who specialize in spine care and have extensive experience performing minimally invasive procedures. That’s the quality of care and expertise you can count on from the team at Spine Center Atlanta.
You may also want to schedule a free MRI review if you:
- Face multiple treatment options
- Aren’t sure if recommended tests are needed
- Want to learn about other treatments
- Still have pain after spine surgery
- Worry you don’t have the right diagnosis
How do I schedule a complimentary MRI review?
You can have a free MRI review in person at the nearest office, or you can stay at home and meet with a surgeon face-to-face via telemedicine.
You need to complete a medical records release form and have your MRIs sent to the office, or arrange to pick up your MRIs and drop them off. Either way, the team at Spine Center Atlanta needs them ahead of your scheduled consultation so your surgeon has time to give them a thorough, thoughtful review.
To learn more about how to arrange a complimentary MRI review, call the nearest office or complete the request form online. A patient liaison connects with you and gives you all of the information you need to know.
After reviewing your MRI, your provider offers their opinion on whether you can have minimally invasive spine surgery, and they talk with you about other appropriate treatment options.
