Get a second opinion
If your child has bone or other orthopedic-related issues, you owe it to yourself and to your child to get a second opinion. Confirm the original diagnosis, and get the information you need to find the right care for your child.
Children's Hospital of Wisconsin can provide the expert opinion to verify or supplement the original diagnosis or treatment plan. We may be able to offer a different perspective and can help those seeking more information. We have experience with a wide variety of typical and unusual orthopedic cases.
Why should I get a second opinion?
The urge to start treatment right away is common. A second opinion can make sure the treatment plan is appropriate and that you aren't missing other options. The more information you have, the better the choices you will make to help your child. Even if treatment has already started, a second opinion can help guide any change in your child's care.
Is a second opinion covered by insurance?
Most insurance plans cover second opinions, but it's always a good idea to check your coverage to be sure. If you need help with that, just call us at (414) 607-5280 (toll-free at (877) 607-5290).
