Getting a Second Opinion

Empowering Women in Their Healthcare Choices

Did you know that about 50% of women do not receive a second opinion before undergoing a gynecologic procedure? At Rassetti Gynecology, we encourage patients to seek a second opinion before agreeing to any procedure or treatment plan. Our team makes it a priority to answer your questions about your condition and recommended procedures so you can feel confident about your future and your healthcare choices. Most physicians are not equipped with the extra training necessary to provide a fully informed opinion, particularly in regard to minimally invasive surgical techniques. Dr. Edwin Ramirez, MD can answer your questions and help you make the right choice for you.

Many doctors do not take the time necessary to fully inform their patients and discuss their situations. We believe that education is key in empowering our patients to partner with us in reaching their healthcare goals. You have the right to speak with a doctor who listens to your concerns, who answers your questions, who explains alternatives to surgery, and who fully informs you of all potential risks and benefits.

Do I need a second opinion?

If your doctor has recommended surgery to you as a remedy for a gynecologic condition you are suffering from, we strongly encourage you to seek out a second opinion. You can schedule an appointment with our Oxnard gynecology practice today to further discuss your condition and alternative treatments.

Learn About Minimally Invasive Surgery

Every year in the United States, approximately 600,000 women undergo hysterectomies - but as many as 80% of these procedures are performed using old surgical methods involving an open abdominal incision and extensive hospitalization and recovery. This is not necessary due to the minimally invasive surgical techniques that are available today, including laparoscopic, robotic, and vaginal surgery.

The benefits of these less invasive procedures include:

  • Less scarring
  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Minimal blood loss
  • Less post-operative pain
  • Shorter recovery times
  • Faster return to your normal life
