Before any surgery, he will take the time necessary to ensure you understand your treatment options and any non-surgical options available. His surgical technique is of the highest quality. After surgery, he will manage your recovery and direct any further treatment necessary. He will always keep you, your local doctor, and any other relevant specialists or practitioners, informed of your progress, and will engage other subspecialists in your care if required. Once your surgery has been successfully completed, he will explain any further care necessary.
