it is quite possible that he is just looking for insurance to approve another set of scans. I doubt there are many surgeons who would operate on the basis of 'an outside institution's' diagnostics. Be prepared for him to insist on new scans, no matter what JH's second look turns out to be. (This is not in any way anything against any doctor or either hospital. I have just seen/heard that too many times.)

Sorry I have to be anon for this post, medical professional reasons.
