The consultation involves a full medical assessment and examination . This is followed by a discussion of the findings and expectations of both patient and surgeon. In some situations a second consultation is necessary when investigations need to be reviewed or further discussion is required about complex surgery to ensure that all questions are answered.

“One operation does not fit all conditions and thus a treatment plan will be individually tailored to match the patients’ wishes and expectations.

I feel it is important to establish a lasting rapport with the patient and Family as it may be the beginning of a journey together.

Happy patient , happy Surgeon !”
