"After a ski drop and several knee operations over a meniscus and cruciate ligaments, I had, at 35, an early osteoarthritis and disintegrated lateral meniscus. The first consultations would leave little hope: there was nothing to do except watch and possibly provide for infiltration. I finally see an orthopedist from a top Parisian hospital who offered me a new procedure in France at the time: an allograft (meniscal transplantation). The operation was a success and I could resume normal activity. Without this expert opinion, I would probably have a very different life today."

"Motivated by the fight against the loss of chance and against unequal care, I participate enthusiastically in this service as president of the scientific committee. It meets a real need for second opinion, which is too often provided randomly. I am also very confident of its success because of its compliance with ethics and with existing rules."
Dr Bruno Debien
"At a time when the medical information on the web is not always scientifically proven and while patients express a legitimate need to understand and participate in medical decisions, Forsecondopinion.com is a TRUE GOOD IDEA. The website provides expert opinions to confirm or discuss treatment plans. The relevance of this decision support tool is incomparably greater than all the forums or « friends’ opinions » that we all used so far."
"We asked for a second opinion on whether or not to operate the genu valgum (knock-knee) of our 11 year old boy. The second opinion was very comprehensive and takes into account not only medical aspects but also the psychological dimension for parents and for the child. On the other hand, knowing that the opinion is neutral is important to us because in all cases the physician that makes the opinion will not be the one that operates. In addition, we had advice on additional tests necessary to take the appropriate decision. I am very satisfied with the service provided by forsecondopinion.com"
"I was recently confronted with a meniscal crack. Two options are then possible: remove the meniscus or attempt to mend it but opinions differ on this point. So I asked two surgeons with recognized practices, to probe the degree of consensus in my case. Getting a second opinion reassured me both on the relevance of the surgery and of the kind of surgery to be performed."
"I have been suffering from an autoimmune hepatitis for 5 years, an incurable disease, which is the source of many other degenerations, and whose treatment (cortisone and immunosuppressant drugs) can cause complex diseases. Getting a second opinion allowed me to be reassured about my treatment plan and obtain specific answers on subjects "around" my hepatic deficiency. The report of a medical expert has nothing to do with the multitude of conflicting information that we find on the net. His relevant answers are complementary to that of the hospital following me and will help me effectively manage this disease daily and over the long term."
