New surgeon or hospital?

Jcaans Community member Posts: 10 Listener
Hello I didn't know where to put this

I suffer from severe sleep apnea and asthma and nerve problems in my arm.

I've had two operations in my nose. 1 last year as well. I am requiring another revision operation this year again.

I feel the surgeon has already had 2 attempts and it's gone worse now. He had another consultation with me and said he needs to do an op again as it wasn't successful.

Is there a way I can check other hospitals in different hospitals? And research on surgeons ? 

As I can't keep going back and getting the same thing done ?

Thanks for any help.

    You can ask for a second opinion, or you could always pay to see a consultant privately see what they think, but keep in mind consultants rarely if ever go against each other.
