Telephone Spine Surgery Consultations and Second Opinions

This service is intended to provide easy, affordable, and timely access to Board Certified and clinically experienced spine surgeon, Dr Ravi Ramachandran. Individuals to whom this consultation will be most useful are domestic or international patients who do not have ready access to a local spine specialist and patients who have had consultations with other spine surgeons and wish to seek a second opinion, confirming or refuting their prior diagnosis. Prior to embarking on a potentially dangerous and certainly permanent surgical intervention, a review by a second set of eyes can be comforting and valuable.

If you are interested in a telephone consultation with Dr. Ravi, please fill out all fields of the form below. You will be called within 5 business days, and most likely within 2 business days. Skype and FaceTime sessions are available if requested - please specify in the "special requests" field.

Consultations generally last 30 minutes. This service is not intended to fully substitute for an in-person consultation as it is limited by the lack of a physical exam. In person consultations may be arranged by calling 916 245 3322. If you feel that your symptoms are urgent and require immediate care, please call 911 or proceed to your nearest emergency room.
