Dr. Buechel commonly provides second opinions in person at the Robotic Joint Center or virtually through our Doctor.com Virtual Consultation platform to determine if you’re a good candidate for Robotic Partial or Total Knee Replacement.
During this consultation he will review your previous diagnosis and recommendations and confirm or amend your diagnosis, providing you with a complete understanding of your knee treatment options, either surgical or non-surgical.
During your second opinion Dr. Buechel will review your history, imaging and perform a physical exam. If your second opinion is virtual, you will be offered a follow-up in person consultation to have a comprehensive physical exam.
If you already have current imaging, we will help you upload your imaging or have you send the imaging to us for Dr. Buechel to review. If you do not Dr. Buechel will answer all of your questions and help you understand your options. If you’re a good candidate for Robotic Partial or Total Knee Replacement and you decide to have Dr. Buechel provide your surgical care, we go out of our way to help you make the process as easy as possible.
