Discussion & Choice

It is very important that all patients are informed and educated about their condition / diagnosis & treatment options: Operative or Non-operative options. I will discuss in detail any proposed treatments if surgery is being carried out, including the benefits and associated risks of surgery at consultation.

Once a patient agrees to have surgery, a further detailed booklet will also be sent/given to the patient. This booklet includes details of surgery, pre-operative and post-operative care and any precautions including specific exercises after the relevant surgery.
