HVC Second Opinion

Get a Cardiac Surgery Second Opinion


Creating the right treatment plan for each individual patient is a complex process. It’s not uncommon for doctors to view the same patient’s situation differently. That is why many people seek second opinions.

A second opinion can give you a different view about your diagnosis. It can provide an alternative surgical plan that might lead to better outcomes. Having another doctor’s opinion helps patients make more informed decisions about their treatment.

Getting a second opinion can also reveal new and better treatment options. As part of an academic medical center, the University of Maryland Heart and Vascular Center often offers surgical options not available anywhere else. Our surgeons are skilled at minimally invasive techniques for the most complex cardiovascular conditions.
