Second Opinion

Second Opinion is a service available to all those who have been diagnosed with a pathology and who, before undergoing a therapeutic pathway, decide to rely on the board of specialists at CNAO Foundation to receive a second opinion on the diagnosis and the treatment to follow. The advantage of opting for the Second Opinion service is that the evaluation can be done without the presence of the patient in our centre.

(*) Starting from the moment the complete documentation for the specific clinical case is received, unless the medical staff need to receive further information.
