If you are facing a difficult medical or surgical decision about your back or neck medical diagnosis, treatment, or spine surgery, Dr. Sean McCance, a top rated NYC spine surgeon, is an excellent choice for a second opinion. You can bring your X-rays (or other diagnostic tests) to Dr. McCance to have him evaluate your tests. Dr. McCance can additionally order diagnostic imaging tests, if necessary, to make certain of a definitive diagnosis.

Dr. Sean McCance performs back & neck surgery on patients not only from around the New York City area but from all over the United States and the world.

Doctor’s note: If you are unhappy with neck surgery or spine surgery that you have received elsewhere, Dr. McCance can give independent and thorough advice and second opinions on your diagnosis, surgical outcome, or the need for supplementary neck or spine surgery or aftercare management.

“Dr. McCance cured my longstanding back pain after a failed back surgery by a different surgeon two years before, I almost had resigned myself to the fact that I’d have pain for the rest of my life, but at 62 years old, I decided to try one more time. I searched for the best spine surgeon. I met Dr. Sean McCance after a prominent NYC physician recommended him highly. Immediately, I felt he understood my pain & under his care, I’d be safe. After medical tests to prove I was a candidate, we came to the conclusion that surgery was the way to go. The options were weighed, should Dr. McCance operate on two discs or one, would I lose too much flexibility if he worked on two discs, and could surgery on one give me enough relief. His conclusion was that one disc would be sufficient, with a bone graft. My surgery was in 6/10; it now is late October, I’ve been completely pain free for almost two months, I stopped pain medication three weeks after surgery, and I have resumed a normal life; with relief.” ~ Google

As modern medical care grows more complex, patients can feel overwhelmed. The opportunity to consult a recognized authority and leader in the medical field about a particular neck surgery or spine surgery diagnosis and treatment can bring peace of mind at an emotionally difficult time. A second opinion may be beneficial when:

  • You are uncertain about having spine surgery
  • You have choices to make about treatment
  • You are a professional athlete
  • You still have questions or concerns about your current treatment or surgical plan
  • You have multiple medical problems
  • You have had prior neck or back surgery and are seeking an NYC revisional spine surgeon
